This week on Tech’s Message:We’re joined by Andrew Lanxon! Find him on YouTube and Instagram, plus his work at CNET.com.New Adventures in Fibreoptic BroadbandA discussion around Andy’s recent move to Hyperoptic and how smaller fibre firms are doing in terms of speed, value, installation etc. Nate will explain his consideration of a move from Virgin to Gigaclear after calculating that it’d be cheaper to leave contract early than stay, but with faster speeds to boot.The Market For CamerasWe’ll discuss the broad market for cameras, where the pain points are in terms of deciding between high-end smartphone or SLR, touch on video, and examine the very top end of the market and what’s exclusively available to the professionals on their big budgets.The extended version available via Patreon subscription also includes: Skyrim Anniversary Edition Adds Fishing, PS5/Xbox Series X|S Upgrades On The Wayhttps://www.gamespot.com/articles/skyrim-anniversary-edition-adds-fishing-ps5-xbox-series-x-s-upgrades-on-the-way/1100-6495364/GameSpot reported this week that Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda Game Studios is re-releasing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it's even introducing a new piece of content.
