In this week's Which? tech podcast the team get hands-on with Aiptek's 3D pocket camcorder to give their first impressions on the 3D effects available at the budget end of this new technology.  

Al Warman and Katie Waller join Mel Dowding and Matt Bath in the studio to run through the week's tech news, which includes the launch of what Tesco claims is the UK's cheapest Sim-only mobile tariff.  

There's also talk of a SmartTalk Freeview box that can talk to you, and news of Google's Voice Actions feature that lets you talk to your phone.

The team discusses the launch of Pure's FlowSongs service which allows users to download songs directly to their digital radios with just a couple of clicks of a button.

There's a security scare in the studio as Al reveals why Android mobile phones could be at risk from oily fingerprints and cameras. 

Listen to find out how the latest research indicates that the private browsing features on web browsers might not be a secure as users think. 

And discover everything you ever wanted to know about Captchas - the often illegible words that check if you're a human or a computer in the war against spam.
