Amazon buys MGM, iMac reviewed, and we talk to Born Digital author - Pocket-lint podcast ep.105

Season 3, Ep. 105

Amazon has announced that it is buying MGM Studios, the home of James Bond, Stargate, Silence of the Lambs and around 4,000 other movies and TV series. But, what does the announcement mean for Amazon Prime customers, and what can we expect following completion of the deal? Pocket-lint's senior news editor, Rik Henderson, joins Stuart to discuss the mammoth news. 


Stuart then talks to the chairman of UK Finance, Robert Wrigley, about his new book on technology and how it is changing his relationship with his sons. We find out whether that's something that we should all be worried about in the future.


And finally, Pocket-lint's associate editor, Dan Grabham, will review the new, ultra-thin M1 powered iMac he's been using. Do we still need a desktop computer and has Apple successfully recaptured the iMac spirit started 23 years ago?
