It’s a week after Apple’s big iPhone 5s and 5c announcements and as such, a quieter news week. So, Brett Haggard and David Greenway are joined by Telkom Mobile’s Manager of Device Testing and Certification Shaun Behnken to speak about the process he goes through in testing the wide a variety of devices he gets in hand.
Discussion topics include:
- The availability of iOS 7 coming this week;
- The (final) arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE edition;
- BBM coming to Samsung first;
- The launch of Grand Theft Auto Five;
- Gabe Newell’s comments on Linux being the future of PC Gaming; and
- Voyager leaving the Solar System.
Our technology picks of the week are:
- Shaun picks the Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia z1;
- David picks Splinter Cell Conviction, 6tag and the Garmin Forerunner 220 and 620; and
- Brett picks the Leisure Suit Larry sale on GOG.com
