Sky's controversial announcement about the Formula One broadcast rights takes centre stage this week, as two Lint F1 fans, Rik and (new to the podcast) Hunter join the mass debate (fnar) on whether a pay TV model is right for the sport. Meanwhile, Dan wonders if Horace Luke's resignation from HTC could be bad for the handset manufacturer, or good for the rest of the industry.

Apple's public break-up with Foxconn for iPad 3 manufacture is on the agenda, as is the latter company's prospective adoption of robots rather than staff members. And Hunter Newsgatherer talks us through the highlights of the Namco Bandai 2011/2012 games preview.

Plus, find out what the team's favourite games of all time are. There's at least one surprise.

So, join the Linters for a superspeed podcast, with shinier helmets than an F1 pit lane.
