Crave Podcast 83: GTA IV, stabbings and extreme XXX

In episode 83, we discover that Kate is secretly married to one of the team, Nate has one of the strongest diseases in the known universe and Rory lives among killers

It's Crave Podcast Friday, fools! In episode 83, we discover that Kate is secretly married to one of the team, Nate has one of the strongest diseases in the known universe, Rupert doesn't agree with PC Pro and Rory lives among killers.

We kick things off on the political tip by discussing whether popular media can influence people negatively. All the signs point to yes: a man was stabbed in the face as he queued for Grand Theft Auto IV -- pretty much in Rory's back yard -- and the government could start arresting people for having 'extreme pornographic images' -- even if you've downloaded them by accident.

We've got news from the wackier side of the Web, too. A microbiologist has revealed that computer keyboards could be many times dirtier than toilet seats, and that women have -- unbelievably -- three to four times the amount of germs in, on and around their work area.

What else? Robots are swarming English villages to practice finding snipers, that's what else. Plus we give you the skinny on the latest gadgets, such as the HTC Shift, the Naim HDX and Apple's new range of Penryn-equipped iMacs.
