Google and Verizon events, Surface RT failure, HTC One Mini, Lumia 925 (MobileTechRoundup show #300)

Summary: Kevin and I recorded MoTR podcast #300 this weekend and look forward to continuing the discussion with faithful listeners.

SHARE:

The MobileTechRoundup podcast began in October 2005 and this weekend we hit the 300 show milestone as we swamped with new phones and mobile technology and enjoy sharing our thoughts with our supporters.

It may be the summer time, but the mobile space hasn't slowed down as we discuss in MobileTechRoundup show #300. I made a trip to New York after the big T-Mobile and Nokia week, but still had the chance to try Halo on a phone and buy a new phone. Show topics include:

  • Microsoft Surface RT fails, not as bad as the Kin, but the news isn't good.

    Because Loverock Davidson, Toddbottom3, Ye & Owlllllllnet.net will be here all day saying it aint so.

    • I've never advocated for any of Microsoft's tablets.

      So I am puzzled why you would consider me one.

    • If you've got something to say...

      ... then tell it to their faces.

    • Surface Rt failure

      Joining the bandwagon is not good. How many Nexus 10 sold in comparison to Surface RT? MS discounting $1bn is nothing for a market that generate $$billions for it in both Apps and advertisement. I think most of you missed the bus.

      • One of my tomato plants died

        from heat exhaustion in this continuing drought we have been dealing with. For the first week I kept watering it hoping it would show signs of life, but instead it just turned brown and dried into stick with no leaves. I could not bear to look at it anymore and realized that I just had to let it go on to where ever dead tomato plants go (for this one it was the mulch bin).

        I am sure that reality will sink in about the Surface RT too. Hang in there.....
