TM 35: UK Gets 'Anti-Drone Blaster', Harry Potter Reborn as Apple iBooks
This podcast is an episode of Tech's Message, a weekly audio download from London-based technology journalists Nate Lanxon and Ian Morris. Hear a discussion based on the week's most interesting UK technology news, and other irreverent takes on tech issues deemed important for British ears to hear.
THIS WEEK ON TECH'S MESSAGE Nate and Ian discuss the UK companies building wireless 'turrets' to shoot nuisance consumer drones, or UAVs, out of the sky by scrambling the communications link to their operator's control unit; and as Harry Potter's entire original run of novels is re-released in enhanced and interactive format for Apple's iBooks store, we talk to family technology expert Andy Robertson to see whether modern parents - and indeed their children - are asking for novels in such forms. Plus Microsoft's latest Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book laptop are released along with UK pricing so we take the opportunity to recap their features and determine whether they're worth the attention and price (clue: they are).
