Pocketnow Weekly 163: Careful where you stick that S Pen
One of the nice things about the current monoform world of slab smartphones is that there are very few moving parts to break. Until, that is, you decide to defy common sense and stick your brand new Galaxy Note 5's S Pen into its silo backwards. That's when life stops getting funny ... and starts getting real. Join us for a debate on whether this is an example of terminal user stupidity or inexcusable design flaw, and then stick around for all the news of the week in mobile technology, from the new Nexus to the new Lumias to the old (and now dead) Fire Phone.
All that –plus your listener mail– awaits below on episode 163 of your favorite tech podcast! So whip out your stylus, because the next episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is chock full of Notent Note-ables. Watch the video broadcast from 12:00pm Eastern on August 28 (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version the Monday after we broadcast. And don't forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!

It's thanks to listeners of this podcast (uh huh, we're counting you in) that we've been able to keep up the Pocketnow Weekly for over three years to this point! But of course, like with any venture we come at here, we want to make this a sustainable one. And to do that, we want to be able to not only advertise products and services on our podcast, but products and services that you will more likely purchase than not. That way, we can keep reliable money coming in and keep you informed, enlightened and entertained with our musings on mobile technology.
All we're asking you to do this week is to visit our podcast survey at http://podsurvey.com/pocketnow and give a few details about yourself. You can give as much or as little personal information about yourself and your habits. That helps us and our clients-to-be hitch up more easily! And not only will you continue to get this weekly podcast free from us, but you're also going to be entered into a drawing for a $100 Amazon Gift Card, too! So, what's there to lose for any of us?
Go! Let yourself be known to the world (of our potential ad clients)! And thanks for your continued support of the Pocketnow Weekly!News
