Pocketnow Weekly 116: Nexus 6, Klingon Cortana, and the "double-data" lie
Nexus 6, Windows 10, Android L, and #BendGate's eyeroll-worthy replacement for tiresome outrage, #GapGate. Let it never be said the tech space isn't predictable.
But not all is lost. On this week's podcast, we serve you a heaping helping of the mobile technology news and opinion you crave – and we also shake it up a bit: joining such storied installments as Gadgets in Hand and What Phone Should I Buy is a new segment designed to let Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck air his grievances in a civilized fashion: Dial F for Fail is here, and today it's taking on those hated Decepticons of the smartphone world, the carriers!
Also, Cortana speaks Klingon now, so there's something else to live for.
If that's the kind of podcast that pours your prune juice, then it is indeed "a good day to die": the Pocketnow Weekly is your podcast warrior in arms.
