It’s a slightly different format for our daily podcast today – and something that may well become a weekly regular if it proves popular. It’s the inaugural (or only) episode of the htxt.africast Friday Tech News Quiz, a lighthearted look back on the week that’s was via the timeless medium of studio guests and questions.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn. You’ll wonder why Deon is so quiet when it’s his turn to answer and why Dave knows so much about pronunciation. Who wins? You’ll have to listen in and see.

As always, we welcome your feedback on podcast [at] and encourage you to subscribe to the show by adding to your favourite podcatcher or clicking here if you have iTunes.
