The podcasters, both from Shrewsbury, began their marathon at 10pm on 27th September, recording and releasing a new podcast on the hour, every hour, right through until 10pm on Wednesday 28th, with no sleep.
Tim and Simon’s Podathon gained an army of followers across the world and found itself on iTunes, as one of the top 20 comedy podcasts in the country, by the time the marathon had finished.
“We like to keep our shows light and funny, the real challenge for The Podathon was keeping the podcast funny when we had been awake for 30 hours” said Simon, of the challenge.
The pair, who recorded The Podathon from Tim’s flat in Shrewsbury, have set a target of raising £1,000 for The Alzheimer’s Society.
“£600 is a lot of money, but we know we can raise more, if every listener donated just a pound we would smash that target to pieces, and probably raise a lot more” Said Tim, of the money raised so far.
Tim and Simon are already successful in the podcasting world with their other podcast ‘Tim and Simon’s Brain Spill’, which has now been downloaded around 100,000 times and has itself been featured on the iTunes podcast page.

The same have been expected from Sony and Samsung.

Many more companies are also expected to come up with smart TVs. The best part about smart TV is that now you will be able to access apps and games direct from the Google Play Store. As the developer kit for Android TVs are available in the market, more number companies are expected to come up with smart TVs in the coming time.
TVS with built-in games
When it comes TVs and games they are like bread and butter. Now new set of TVs are available in the market that have built-in functionality for gaming and are compatible with consoles. Brands like Samsung, Philips and Toshiba are coming with products that will help people to play games on their TV itself.
Many people tried their hand in the field of wearables last year, leading to the formation of many smartwatches and fitness bands. It is expected that things may go the same way in the nearest future too. Sony came up with its epaper smartwatch which is called as FES watch. LG came up with its G Watch R2, which is expected to have 4G connectivity in this year itself.

When it comes to Samsung Galaxy S5, it was outstanding but it failed to capture the market on a large scale. Samsung Galaxy S6 has been released in this year April. It comes with lollipop OS and super AMOLED touchscreen. They have been able to attract people on a large scale.
