Mobile World Congress 2016 [S12E02]

This week the team review the mobile industry’s annual gathering in Barcelona: Mobile World Congress. Ewan is championing #MWCinaday again, but Rafe’s seen it all and gives us the low-down on hardware, virtual reality, 5G (yes, it’s a thing; no, you can’t have it yet) and the ‘internet of things’.

There is a brief (safe for work) discussion of bovine fertility and the phrase 'cow fitbit' is used once towards the end of this week's show. We apologise to those of a sensitive disposition or listeners that expected better than childish giggling (although it's been 12 seasons so you should know by now).
