Weekly Round Up Podcast #98: WikiLeaks vs CIA, SA vs ad-blocking & more

Wikileaks CIA

Welcome to Weekly Roundup, our podcast discussing the latest tech trends, innovation and news from the last few days.

This time, the ever-present Hadlee Simons plays host to Andy Walker and Graham van der Made.

The three regulars discuss the new Wikileaks deep-dive into CIA’s spying scandal. We also take a look at an Effective Measure study about South Africans and ad-blocking (we really hate ads).

We also discuss the booming success of Zelda and the dismal failure of its community being unable to take criticism. We also look at the Switch and see if it’s worth the price or worth skipping entirely.

Lastly, we take a look at the Huawei Mate 9 and let you know whether or not it’s worth your money.

The CIA has possibly been spying on you… so what’s new?

What are we watching, reading, playing: Graham has still been surfing the web with nothing, in particular, catching his eye, in the meantime though he’s been indulging in Lego Worlds, claiming it’s suffering from No Man’s Sky syndrome. Besides Lego Worlds, he’s still been making his way through Bully on Xbox One.

Andy, on the other hand, has been indulging in a podcast called No Such Thing As a Fish created by the lovable QI Elves.

Hadlee has been captivated by An Idiot Abroad. The lucky guy has also been reviewing the critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch, which he seems to be enjoying. Besides all the consoles and games, our tech guy has also been reviewing the LeEco Le 2 smartphone which is a review you need to check out, given our trouble with the smartphone company.

For all this and more, have a listen to the podcast below. Also, be sure to catch the thorough Recommended Reading list at the foot of this article.
