Crave Podcast 72: Will Apple make a games console?

This week's podcast was recorded on Valentine's Day, which could have been very awkward if there wasn't a female presence in the studio

This week's podcast was recorded on Valentine's Day, which could have been very awkward if there wasn't a female presence in the studio. Thankfully, the tide of testosterone from Rory Reid, Nate Lanxon and Rich Trenholm was stemmed by Kate Macefield.

The loving foursome managed to keep their hands off each other long enough to dissect some pretty interesting news. First on the agenda was word that armed police are on the lookout for anyone using a Philips MP3 player, and they won't hesitate to pop a cap in the general direction of your backside to bring you to justice.

Also, Apple may be working on a new games console to replace the rubbish ill-fated Pippin. Will it see the light of day? Will Apple turn the iPod into a more games-oriented machine? Does the world care? Our insightful debate on this topic will shock and astound you.

In other news, we ponder whether the "Mosquito" -- a device which emits a high-pitched noise to disperse gangs of youths -- violates your civil rights. Apparently, some people believe sub-sonic weapons shouldn't be used against our youth. We're not so sure.

As is usual, we finish the show with the WTF section, which this week concerns a man who stole over £15,000 and spent it all on radios. Why? Click this link and we'll fill you in. -Rory Reid
