Not all of us have read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, so not all of us were exactly qualified to make the lame joke that kicks off this week’s podcast. But we made it, and we stand behind it. Because as hundreds of fifth-rate “manufacturers” well know, sometimes you just have to fake it.
But we’re not talking about secondhand knockoff products in this episode of the Weekly. Rather, we get serious about octa-core comparisons, the till-recently-mythical HTC M4, the insanely cheap new Lumia out of Finland, and just how tired we are or aren’t of the Samsung Galaxy S 4. In between, we discuss special focus-after-the-fact Litro cameras, the possibilities for Apple’s next mobile OS, and we even manage to announce the start of a new series of Hangouts in there, as well.
All that, plus listener mail and some brutal Taylor Martin-style segue-trashing, await you – so grab your oxygen and report to the decompression chamber; the Pocketnow Weekly diving bell is about ready for splashdown.
