This episode is proudly brought to you with the courtesy of 42. Plus 3. We discuss the arrival of location based advertising, the wonderfully spamminess of it all, Microsoft launching new Zunes and also conceding to the EU saying UNCLE UNCLE, or ONCLE ONCLE! At the same time rubbing it in Hollywood’s face that Halo’s whupped their butts. For a week or so. We also see the launch of a phone that comes with optical zoom. Why, Mr Bond! Is that a camera lens sticking outta your pocket, or are you just happy to see me. Tarra from us all here at Tech65!
