In the food service industry, when you’re a server who’s been slammed with too many customers and can’t keep up with the demand, you’re said to be “in the weeds.” On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you’ve wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you’ve found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry).
But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today’s Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech talk done as well. Specifically, we talk all of the new Galaxy S 4- and ATIV-branded products unveiled at yesterday’s Samsung Premiere 2013 event, and we also squeeze in some discussion about all the reviews that landed this week: namely, the Lumia 925, BlackBerry Q10, and Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3.
All that, plus listener mail and even more webOS-sourced sound effects, after the break. We’ve rented the hall and engaged the orchestra, and today’s installation of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is here to see if you can dance.
