Apple and Battersea Power Station, iPlayer Logins, TalkTalk fine, Google Pixel: TM 70
THIS WEEK ON TECH'S MESSAGE Nate and Ian discuss Apple's move to Battersea Power Station for its London operations. We look at the history of the derelict site and how it's been approached time and time again, unsuccessfully, for renovation. Will Apple have better luck? Plus the BBC iPlayer will soon require logins and links to license fee payers' registered postcodes in order to get a login. TalkTalk was fined a record £400,000 for lax security that led to the hacking of one of its customer databases. Google reveals its plans to build its own high-end Android smartphones under the Pixel brand, so we look at where these products fit in the rest of the UK's phone market. Plus what's going on with the Fling social network, which has been seen to delve into the realms of user-created smut.
