This week on the Podcast we try and go a little bit high-brow - kicking off with a chat about the very last launch in the 30-year Space Shuttle programme.

But don't worry - it only takes us five minutes or so to revert to type and start talking shit......literally.

We then move to more familiar tech ground, with a web-heavy show that features plenty of debate about Facebook and Skype's hookup for video calling within the social network.

We discuss the awkward non-personality of the enigma that is Mark Zuckerberg, and ask whether Steve Jobs would have been ignored by a canteen full of live bloggers, whilst talking about trends and graphs.

Stu also gives us the run-down on his latest findings within Google+ and we talk about how the Big G's new social avenue will take on Facebook, as well as chewing the fat over where next can the ubiquitous Google empire grow.

All this and more (well, not much more - that's pretty much it).
