Pocketnow Weekly 040: Microbatteries, Lumia Woes, Twitter Music, and More
We didn't expect to run the Weekly with a skeleton crew two weeks in a row - and it's a good thing we didn't have to. Mere minutes into this week's Tony-and-Michael-only podcast, Taylor Martin arrives to save us from the spectre of a fun, but low-energy, two-man show.
In its place: jokes, laughs, and a lot of industry insight you're gonna wanna put your ears on. We talk phone batteries that can jump-start your car, what place Twitter has in music, whether we should be excited about Motorola's X phone or Nokia's aluminum Catwalk, and the strengths and weaknesses of Windows Phone, Facebook Home, and technology's copycat culture.
All that, plus some of the most unique listener mail in the history of the podcast, await you - so toss on your poopysuit and start growing your at-sea beard; the U.S.S. Pocketnow Weekly is about to cast off from the pier. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus to stay apprised of the latest episodes. Thanks for listening!Pocketnow Weekly Episode 040
