This week we’re joined by Tim Biggs from the SMH to talk through the details of the Sony PlayStation 5 launch. Sony didn’t show off too many games we didn’t already know about, but there was still plenty to discuss, from the surprisingly massive frame of the PS5 to the emergence of the PlayStation Plus Collection and more!

Ardent Apple watcher and writer Peter Wells also joins us to go through this week’s big Apple news. Should we buy an iPad Air rather than an iPad Pro? Why does Apple now have three different Apple Watches to confuse consumers? And why do Peter and I disagree so strongly about the value proposition of Apple Fitness+?
