The Digital
We talk Windows, smart home, music tech, vintage tech, EVs and lots more.

This week Garry and I chat with George Hines about  using Windows Media Center to cut the cord from pay TV and reduce the monthly bills. George has documented his experiences on his blog where he talks about how to get the content you want and not have to pay massive cable bills. So Garry and I talk with George about his experiences over the last 6 months and find out the pros and cons of his solution.

I also talk about the weeks news with Garry including the HP Slate, MCE LoveFilm, Simple.TV, Media Center Health Monitor updates and My Moives

Well, we made it to show 50! This week we cover about HTC's latest handsets, recent leaks of HP's Windows 7 slate, and of course the PlayBook. For our feature discussion, we turn to Nokia's stance of hardware ruling over software and share our own thoughts as to which is more important to us and which we think really makes or breaks a device. We are also giving away two TDL iPhone app (check out The Missing Remote's review here) licenses courtesy of Ian. The giveaway is restricted to US listeners only, but we're making it really easy to enter the drawing. Simply tweet any (or all) of us with the hash tag #TDLMobile (and a friendly "Hi if you like), and we will draw two people at random when we record next week's show. You can find our Twitter names below. Good luck!
