Wordle, the future of the PC, and we review the Huawei P50 Pro - Pocket-lint podcast ep.140

Wordle has taken the world by storm with its simple but challenging premise of guessing a five-letter word in six goes. And thus, this week saw the simple puzzle game being sold for big bucks to the New York Times. What does that mean for the likes of you and I? Well, contributing editor Max Freeman-Mills is here to spill the beans.

Meanwhile, Stuart talks with the president of personal systems at HP, Alex Cho, to find about more about hybrid working, the trends that are affecting the PC industry, and whether the Metaverse really is something we should be paying attention to. 

And finally, fellow contributing editor Cam Bunton reviews the Huawei P50 Pro. Is it good enough to forgive the lack of Google Play Store access?
