MobileViews Podcast 485: Amazon/Comixology rant; Using a sub-$100 Android tablet; and more

Steven Hughes, Sven Johannsen, Todd Ogasawara, & Jon Westfall

Jon Westfall and I are joined by frequent guest panelists Steven Hughes and Sven Johannsen for this podcast. Note that (roughly) the first half of the podcast was recorded using Adobe Podcast Studio beta. We encountered a technical issue at that point and switched to using Microsoft Teams and Rouge Amoeba Audio Hijack to record the second half.

    Note: I was fortunate to have been able to invite and host Comixology co-founder David Steinberger at the 2010 ThinkMobile conference (see photo here). Amazon bought Comixology in April 2014.
