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.

The Windows 8.1 Blue Screen of Death

20140620-152701-55621961.jpg

Just ran into this on my Dell Venue 8 Pro running Windows 8.1 (with Update applied). I had to use Windows’ “Refresh this device” earlier this week after the Windows Store app and Desktop mode stopped working. I wonder if there is a more problematic underlying problem behind all of these problems?
