MobileViews Podcast 100

The MobileViews podcast launched way back on November 26, 2008 (under a different name). For episode 100, Frank McPherson, who was on podcast number 2, joins me (Todd Ogasawara) and Jon Westfall for a look backwards and forwards. Here’s the show run-down for episode 100.

Looking backwards and forwards with Frank McPherson

  1. From the T-Mobile G1 (first Android phone) to the Moto X, Nexus 6, and more
  2. Chromebooks, Chromebox, & Chromecast

News

  1. Jon bought both the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. How does it compare to the old iPad 2 & iPad mini 2?
  2. He also bought Apple’s leather case for the iPhone 6 Plus. Worth the money?
  3. Thoughts about the iOS 8.1 and OS/X Yosemite updates.
  4. Jon and I were both traveling last weekend. And, we both took an iPhone 6 Plus on our respective trips. How well does it the new giant iPhone travel?
  5. The initial Windows 10 Technical Preview worked great on my Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet. The recent major update (build 9860)? Not so much.
  6. What is Microsoft Garage? And, why is Microsoft Research dabbling in Android apps?
  7. Jon’s rant: What is CurrentC? And, what does it have to do with CVS and Rite-Aid shutting down support for Apple Pay?
  8. Pebble smartwach, Samsung gear and other wearable tech spotted at… Sam’s Club? Yep.

Product tips

  1. Todd: PressureNet for Android. Note the discussion about the possibilities of using the iPhone 6’s barometer on the Cliff Mass Weather Blog. For weather wonks.
