It's another one of El Reg's best and only podcast with your hosts Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week, everyone is keen to get the scoop on stealthy upstart Data Gravity with special guest David Siles, vice president of worldwide field operations for Data Gravity.

David does a heroic job dodging questions about his secretive firm (except that its gizzits include a flashlight that doubles as an iPhone charger). But he does confirm that Data Gravity is working on a "big data storage box" aimed at the SME IT market. And Greg relates a curious little tale about trademarks, Amazon, soap-makers Lush and a battle of wills over a name...
