MobileViews Podcast 118: Google IO (yawn?) & more…

Jon Westfall and I (Todd Ogasawara) recap the announcements from Google IO last week. For the most part neither of us saw items that might excite consumers. There were, however, some interesting items for developers. And, I admit that I’ve found the Google Photos apps and cloud service to be particularly interesting. You can read my initial impressions of Google Photos in this ExtremeTech.com article:

Then, Jon discusses whether Apple Watch’s heartbeat detection really become worse (or not) after the 1.0.1 Watch OS update.

And, finally, we discuss our current primary computing platforms and what it would take for us to shift away from them.
