TM 39: BBC Store and Apple TV, Plus BlackBerry Priv Is 'Actually Great'
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 launch of the BBC Store, which Auntie hopes will help it deliver over a billion quid back to the Beeb by selling current and archived TV series to UK and global viewers; plus with Apple's launch of the new Apple TV, are we finally in a new era of television innovation? Nate has been using one for a few weeks and finds a lot to enjoy -- as he has the iPad Pro, which he and Ian discuss their first impressions of. Plus CNET.com Senior Editor Andrew Hoyle joins to discuss the BlackBerry Priv, the company's first Android phone -- and it seems to be hitting all the nails right on their heads. Could this mark the beginning of a return to BlackBerry in European homes and offices? With less than one percent of the UK smartphone market, it seems BlackBerry only has market to claim and the Priv seems to offer some real promise. But is it enough?
