It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid... Er... Hang on, isn't it still July? Yes, technically, but it's also the time of year when major retailers, such as Amazon, Carphone Warehouse, Currys and PC World hold events showcasing the products they hope to shift by the palette-load in the holiday season.
For that reason, the Linters discuss some of the products they've seen so far at the Christmas in July jamborees, and mull over the strong hints they've heard on a couple of rumoured others; the iPad mini and Kindle Fire 2.
We also have a chat with Team GB member who's aiming for an Olympic medal in the marathon, Paula Radcliffe to find out how she uses technology in her training regime. She also gives a few tips for those looking to take up running.
Former Gamesmaster presenter and editor of news Rik Henderson is joined by contributing editors Hunter Skipworth and Danny Brogan. While owner Stuart Miles does a bit of the roving reporting.
