Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, and Jeremy Garcia present Bad Voltage, in which the Magna Doodle makes a comeback, Stuart is discontent, and:

  • [00:04:50] Taco Bell have made their own wine, which we’re sure is delicious… US customs seize a bunch of counterfeit Airpods which turn out to be completely legitimate OnePlus wireless earphones… and Dave Grohl is in a drum battle with Nandi Bushell, a 10-year-old girl from Ipswich, and it is delightful
  • [00:13:50] Oracle are buying Tiktok. Or maybe they aren’t. It’s hard to say. Microsoft aren’t. Maybe nobody is. And what’s actually being bought? The US operations? Not the algorithm. Probably.
  • [00:19:08] Anyway, a more successful deal seems to be that Nvidia are buying ARM for $40 billion. What will this mean?
  • [00:33:28] Our main discussion: non-tech tech. Jono’s been looking at the Remarkable 2, an e-paper-based note-taking tablet. But should we be just using paper instead? Is everybody already using paper instead? And is this nostalgia, the tech backlash, or none of the above? Are you a pencil or a keyboard person?
