Pocketnow Weekly 115: iPhone gets the bends, Surface Mini gets teased, and fanboys get a forum
Hating the iPhone is the new hating the Super Bowl champions. And if that's not a thing that people do, well, sorry: I don't get sports.
Point is, Apple's new flagship just set a bevy of sales records –again– and seems poised to carry Apple through another successful year – again, again. So why do people hate the iPhone so much? We'll touch on that before launching into the far more important discussion of just how these phones actually work in the real world, from our own experiences to the unfortunate souls who got "the bends." All that in the show ahead, plus Android flip-phone news and a tantalizing peek at the Microsoft tablet that could have been!
If that's the kind of podcast that bends your iPhone, then the Pocketnow Weekly is the show for you. Join us for Pocketnow Weekly 115 below – either through the unedited video stream at 2:15pm Eastern (click here for your local time), or the high-quality audio version (which is up now) – and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air.

It may just sound like a ringtone to you, but our transition music track ("Radiation") is a real song, from a real album, by a real artist: Ali Spagnola. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali's website here, visit her YouTube page here, and follow her on Twitter here!
Thanks for listening. See you next week!
