Latest Episodes

Episode 14

With special guest Alfie Dennen from Moblog the team discuss the new Moblog platform, Three's hoodie-hating store, Christmas in July, the iPhone (heard of it?) app store, O2's continuing epic-fail to provide Dan a service, an update on everyone's favourite toy - the personal mobile network - and a special follow-up feature on James's brand evangelism post this week with some tips for Carphone Warehouse (no carphones, not a warehouse). As ever it's all wrapped up with the regular 'things of the week'. 49 minutes that just keep giving.

Episode 13

This week we talk about unlimited drinks Dublin, review the kit that the mobile geek at Glastonbury used (that's James by the way), talk about Flirtomatic's move into the German market, Ewan's 'mobile hell hole post' and our favourite new things in the regular 'things of the week' slot. ...oh and one other thing too... what was that now...?

Special Edition: iPhone 3G Queue-cast

Special Edition iPhone3G Launch Edition: Dan Lane reports live from the Apple store on the collective balls-up that O2 and Carphone Warehouse made of the iPhone 3G launch. Little did he know at the time of recording he had almost another 4 hours to wait...

SMS Text News Podcast - Episode 12

Mr MacLeod is back from his desert island this week and we're back in SMS Text News Towers too - normal service has been resumed. This week we preview Ewan's write-ups on the technology he took with him - the stuff that made it through customs and the stuff that didn't. We also celebrate Orange's entry to the 21st century with a sensible data tariff and their latest customer, talk about Yahoo's developer platform 'Blueprint', handset pricing, unlimited drinks Dublin and our usual 'things of the week'. All in just about 40mins... how do we do it?

Episode 11

This week Ewan's still on his desert island, James is in a muddy field (Glastonbury apparently) so Ben and Dan talk to special guest Jay Fenton on subjects including the Nokia buy-out of Symbian, Nokia's problem with product leaks, the new 'UK network' UK01 and the furore over Roger's tariffs for the iPhone in Canada plus 'things of the week'.

Episode 10

This week Ewan's still on his desert island but has managed to send us an update anyway. Ben, James and Dan discuss the launch of Nokia's E71, Dan's self-build phone, James' upcoming Glastonbury trip, Canadian mobile data, proposals for incoming call charges by an EU commissioner, Unlimited Drinks Dublin as well as the usual shouts and 'things of the week'.

Episode 9

Ewan's off this week on his way to a desert island with enough mobile hardware to confuse them at Heathrow airport. In his absence the team discuss a number of the recent and forthcoming events (including our very own 'Unlimited Drinks'), review the Jawbone headset, discuss CLI-spoofing outfit Spookcall, get excited about budget S60 handsets and highlight their 'things of the week'. Recorded by phone, this episode has extra smooth-jazz hold music magic.... nice.

Episode 8

This is the 8th installment of the podcast, recorded on Friday 6th June. With a cast of thousands (well 5 at peak) it's another big’un (60mins or there about) and well over 30 additional minutes hit the edit-room floor (metaphorically, I used a laptop) this week. I hope you agree the bits left over are worth it. Dan is more audible this week, although the sound is still ‘authentic’… we discuss Ofcom’s proposed ‘voluntary code’ for mobile broadband providers, Unlimited Drinks (tomorrow!), the Jawbone launch, the state of mobile journalism, Ewan’s upcoming desert-island adventure, our things of the week and so many ’shout outs’ it hurts. COMPETITION: Win a Jawbone Noise Assassin bluetooth headset - listen around 34m 57s for details.
