Naked Geeks – September 14, 2013

By Leigh D. Stark | 10:01 am 14/09/2013

It’s the fourth Naked Geeks, and unless you were living in a cave that lacked mobile signal, you’ll probably know that Apple announced new iPhones this week, so guess what we’re looking at on the show.

If you answered “iPhones,” you win a prize, but the prize is that you can listen to the podcast and hear GadgetGuy’s Peter Blasina, Valens Quinn, and myself talk about if the announcements were good, and if the devices will be worth upgrading to.

News did happen outside of Apple this week, and we’ll talk about how young Australians are creating inventions that can save lives, a new Olympus camera, and a lot more.

And we’ll review two big, big gadgets for you, items so big that they barely fit on the Naked Geeks studio desk: the Nokia Lumia 625 and HP’s massive Rove 20 tablet.

No questions from listeners this time – no one asked any – but if you ask us something on Twitter, we’ll not only respond on the social network, we’ll respond in the podcast, too.

For now, though, here’s the show, and as always, we’re keen to know what you think, so tell us in the comments below.
