CNET UK Podcast 296: O2, Android gaming and Edgar Wright

It's been a disastrous few days for O2 -- but what went wrong? Plus we meet Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright.

It's been a disastrous few days for O2 after the network failed for as many as 7 million people. What went wrong, and can you claim compensation? Plus, in better news, we check out the Android games console that's raising millions of dollars, and chat to Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright.

Join the CNET UK team as we lock ourselves in the podcast studio and refuse to come out until we've thoroughly dissected this question and the other pressing technology matters of the week.

Andy thinks the Sony Xperia Tipo is just his type, Luke starts in on Kickstarter-funded Android games console Ouya, and Rich has the Wright stuff with The Random Adventures of Brandon Generator, the latest project from writer, director and Simon Pegg's chum Edgar Wright. But which slice of top tech claims the Crave kudos and wins the day?

And we turn to you, esteemed listener, for your thoughts. Should you opt for an older phone if it means you can get newer software? What's the best gadget ever? And whatever happened to flip phones?

Whether you're looking for help and advice with your newest or oldest gadgets, or you just have something to get off your chest about the tech issues of the day, leave us a comment below or vent on our Facebook page -- it's stuffed to bursting with fellow gadget geeks, not to mention a fistful of behind-the-scenes glimpses at CNET Towers.
