MobileViews Podcast 89: Mostly rants + superhero gadget picks

This podcast was recorded on July 12, 2014. It was released shortly after that on iTunes. However, I’m only getting around to posting a blog item about it now.

In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I rant about imperfect touch interfaces and the eternal search for the perfect mobile tech bag.

We also have two gadget picks that kind of make you feel like a super-hero. My pick is the Sears Craftsman Infrared Thermometer. Jon’s is The Bass Pro Fly Shooter.
