The Skywalker saga finally ends (or rises?) and the fandom galaxy is as divided as ever. Mixed emotions all over the place as we dissect the film in great detail, with easter eggs, callbacks and choices, good and bad, JJ made along the way. What now for the Star Wars universe? Can Disney ever bring balance to the nerd force? As always, we cover all angles using clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on the Naked Tech Podcast.
For the first time in history, human sapiens have taken a photo of an actual black hole in a galaxy far away. What kind of technology was used to achieve this? We break it all down with clips of course. Speaking of space, Star Wars episode IX’s teaser trailer was showcased as well as the title – The Rise of Skywalker. What were the surprises? How many misdirections were there? Will someone give JJ a hug?
Finally, Disney+ streaming service was announced, along with a whole bunch of new original shows and films. If you’re into content, it’s certainly a great time to be alive!

Tech had a depressing year in 2017. Perhaps that showed in the number of episodes we did this year. As we look ahead to a more hopeful 2018, we summize the year that was, warts and all, and chat about the trends and memes for 2017. We review our favourite things including movies and apps and discuss how we went in our predictions at the start of the year. Spoiler alert: we sucked! Be sure to listen out for our 2018 predictions, as we set ourselves up for even more disappointment!

Do you agree with us? Are we totally off the mark? Let us know in the comments or get in touch with us on @thelazycouch on twitter.

Here’s our spoiler review for Rogue One, a Star Wars story. If you’ve seen the movie, let us know if you agreed with us or not, on our thoughts on all the characters, the easter eggs, and execution of this first standalone attempt in Disney’s Star Wars universe. #thelazycouch
In episode 67, we cover the news of Nintendo continuing their nostalgia run with the launch of a mini NES, Uber reaching 2 billion trips, rumours that Apple will buy Formula 1, Samsung Note 7 to have an iris scanner and Google will build a AR headset to compete with Microsoft. Will it get any crazier? It does. Japanese telco giant SoftBank buys an arm for $32b, not just any arm but chip designer ARM. Their chip designs are found in Apple and Samsung devices and may other devices that connect to the internet.
Our main feature covers the Star Wars Celebration event in London where we look at more Rogue One details and a spoiler, which we didn’t spoil. The event covers all things geeky from the animated series to how they built the cardboard models of all the machines to prepare for the movies. All this and more in episode 67 of the Lazy Couch Podcast.
Mark Zuckerberg lays out Facebook’s 10 year plan and roadmap to dominate all aspects of your daily life. We are not surprised. Microsoft may have stole some of the thunder last week, but Facebook are also all in on bots and use of natural language for its slew of messenger apps to be your life OS.
In movies, there are new trailers for Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War, and the Harry Potter prequel – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And what’s that? Do we finally know who will play the villain in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man movie?
We are on a very short 1-week hiatus at the moment but rest assured, we will be back as strong as ever next week with all the latest in technology, movies, the internet and all things geeky. Keep it locked in here on The Lazy Couch podcast.
It’s the first episode for the year, and it’s all about CES 2016 (formerly known as the Consumer Electronic Show), that was held over 4 days in Las Vegas during the week. We take a close look at some of the more interesting and innovative products that were showcased and also some that were just downright ridiculous.
There’s everything from a rollable OLED display, to a giant person-sized quadcopter, to a hoverboard/standable that doubles up as your personal robot butler! In other news, we coin the term ‘standables’! Tune in now to hear what our favourite products were at CES 2016.
Happy new year! We’re back from our respective holidays and finally got together to chat all things Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In this spoiler-ful walkthrough of each scene and character in the film, we also contemplate and theorise what could be in store for episodes XIII and IX. Did J.J. screw it up? Or deliver one of the most-loved spectacles of all time? Find out in episode 44 of The Lazy Couch…
