With Computex, E3 and WWDC all to cover – on top of the usual recap of the week’s most interesting tech and gaming stories – we present you a special super-sized edition of the Techcast.

Join Terence Huynh and Chris Southcott as they discuss the latest announcements from E3, their thoughts about Mac OS X Yosemite, a five-in-one device from Asus, and a new messaging service based around selfies. Because, that’s a thing now?
