Ever recorded a 90-minute podcast full of Skype-related artifacts and drop-outs, only to find once you wrap it up that you used the wrong mic? If so, you know the pain we’ve experienced cutting together today’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Sorry for the levels on this one, folks; it’s unfortunate, and we’ve done all we can to normalize them, but you’re probably going to be twisting your volume knob an awful lot over the course of this here episode.
On the bright side, if you manage to endure, you’ll be treated to some excellent discussion on everything from Galaxy S IV leaks to the relative beauty of the Sony Xperia Z to Samsung’s love affair with plastic. That’s capped off by some fascinating speculation about the current state of wireless charging and Nokia’s fabled PureView Windows Phone, along with a step-by-step guide on how to properly pronounce “Ubuntu,” and a right proper welcome for Taylor Martin, who makes his debut on the Weekly this episode.
Plus, listener mail, and some rather liberal use of the curse-bleep button! So throw some change in the swear jar, set your Lazy Boy to full-recline, and get your variable-volume hand ready: this week’s loud-n-soft serving of the Pocketnow Weekly is here to drop sweet morsels of techno-knowledge right into your lobes.
