CNET UK podcast 504: Samsung's tough week, difficult Pidgey parties and no more peachy butts

It's another difficult week for Samsung, as it's had to recall 2.8 million washing machines in the US. It's also having to force Galaxy Note 7 owners to give up their doomed handsets in New Zealand by blocking the phones from connecting to networks.

In other news, Niantic has been cleaning up the streets by culling many of the Pidgeys and Rattatas. Andy isn't happy that he can't farm Pidgeys for the XP anymore.

Also up for discussion on the UK's best tech podcast is what breed of owl is in iOS 10's emojis and why the peachy butt just isn't a peachy butt anymore.
