Pocket Megazoom Cameras and Windows Tablet Talk on PCWorld Podcast #79

This week Senior Associate Editor Elsa Wenzel joins editors Jason Cross, Robert Strohmeyer and Tim Moynihan to discuss the latest crop of megazoom pocket cameras, the dubious merits of a Windows 7 tablet and the recent rash of employee suicides at Foxconn.

We maintain pretty stringent review standards here at PC World, but today Tim Moynihan discusses the difficulties in choosing a favorite among a few great pocket megazoom cameras. Robert leads a discussion on whether Apple has anything to fear from the Windows 7 and Android tablets coming out of Computex, and we round out the week with some earnest talk about the high suicide rate among workers at Foxconn, China's largest electronics manufacturer. Are we willing to accept poor working conditions in exchange for cheaper products? Tune in this week to find out!
