Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 024

Advertisement

Only seven billion remain following the Great Mayan Apocalypse of 2012, and three of them have joined forces in this new dystopian future-world to talk technology.

Closing out 2012 is a tough endeavor, but thankfully the pre-holiday news explosion quickly gave way to a post-holiday news respite, and the resulting abbreviated topic list gives us a little breathing room at the tail end of this year. In this episode, we talk about the future of Windows RT tablets, the rumored Apple iOS-running smart watch, Motorola’s mysterious “X” project, first impressions from a week with the Galaxy Camera, and of course our impressions of 2012 and our projections for 2013.

All that, plus listener mail, jokes about parallel ports, and a quick slice of pre-show bloopers, after the break. Plug in, kick back, and treat those beautiful ears of yours to episode 024 of the Pocketnow Weekly. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Google Plus to stay apprised of the latest episodes. Thanks for listening, and happy 2013!

Update: For those of you who downloaded the file that cuts off a little after 01:25:07, the fixed sound file has been uploaded. You may now enjoy the end of the podcast, complete with pre-show blooper bits. Sorry for the inconvenience. (Thanks, Stefan!)
