In today’s episode, Brett, Charlie and Dave speak about Intel’s new Broadwell processor (and its cool refinements like double the battery life and half the TDP) and Google’s 60Tb/s new undersea cable joining the West Coast of the US to Japan. We also take you through the official launch and pricing for EA Access and the fact that MTN has finally caught up with the other operators by launching LTE services to its prepaid customers.

We also remind you not to forget our outstanding competition, which could see you winning a free set of tickets for Lean Startup Weekend, right over here.

Brett is the big cheese at Hypertext Media. He's been covering the technology industry for so long, he's seen old technology be 'respun' as the next big thing one too many times. He started Hypertext in 2002 and quite frankly hasn't looked back (although he often longs for the days when a steady salary, sick days and leave were a given). Publications in his stable include htxt.africa; DailyFive (http://www.dailyfive.tv); Connect; Tarsus Channel and GirlGuides (http://www.girlguides.co.za). He also hosts the ZA Tech Show (http://www.zatech.co.za), does a monthly tech column for Sawubona and writes the odd gadget piece for a magazine here and there. Currently uses: 11-inch Macbook Air, iPhone 5, Blackberry Z10, iPad Mini, Nexus 7, Kindle Paperwhite, Marley TTR Headphones, Xbox360, PS3, Nintendo 3DS.
