Rachel and Jason are investigating the nation’s wi-fi woes. Why do so many of us have trouble connecting, and what can we do about it? With new routers being released by BT and Virgin, could our connection issues soon be a thing of the past? Triple-... (more)jump gold medallist and keen cyclist Jonathan Edwards dons lycra and gets on his bike to take a look at cycle computers - technology that is fast growing in popularity. Polly is in Hungary, checking out the Mammuth Rewarron, the world’s first one-third scale, radio controlled car. Will it be a mammoth enough ride to get to the top of Polly’s leader board of thrills? With tablets of all shapes and sizes released on what appears to be a weekly basis, there is more choice than ever. Jon Bentley takes a look at those vying to steal the iPad’s crown, but will his eventual winner be tempting enough to persuade the public away from the iPad? Finally, Jason and Rachel build a pair of life-size radio controlled superheroes modelled on - and piloted by - themselves. What could possibly go wrong?
