Motorola looks towards the future with its new Moto X smartphone; Foxtel offers you a way to watch pay-TV without the box or contract; and it’s true, we’re paying too much for electronics. This is The Briefing for Friday August 2nd, 2013.

And we’re back after a two-month hiatus. We’re moving to a Friday, so you can take this and listen when you are coming back from work.

Enjoy!
