Geek Actually Ep146 – iPhone 5 Speculations

Hosted by: David McVay, Josh Philpott, Richard Gray & David Longo

This week on Geek Actually there are far too many geeks for one little studio! David, Josh and Richard are joined by Geek Actually newbie David Longo (damngoodcup.com) for a look at all the rumours that surround the upcoming Apple announcement. The boys also take a look at other geeky stories including a robot runner in the 2012 Olympic Games torch relay,  clip on 3D glasses, circuit board watches and pornstars that review video games. All this plus an update on the DC comics reboot and some listener feedback. Enjoy.

Geek Actually is the fusion of the old Tech Actually and Geek Actually After Show podcasts. All the tech and geek goodness that you have come to expect from the old shows wrapped up and made easier to swallow as one simple, little, tasty podcast. DeltaKnight (AKA DAvid Murray) continues to supply us with some of the geekiest stories on the web.

Geek Actually is recorded live on Saturdays around 12pm (AEDST UTC+11). Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live or you can also now watch the live show on Facebook – Click here to watch.

Apple has confirmed it, October 4th they announce iPhone news. But what could they be releasing? Let the rumour and speculation begin.
An open table discussion about what might be announced on October 4th. Will it be an updated iPhone 4 or will it be an iPhone 5? What else will be announced?
