    Never let it be said that Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera isn't a trouper. In the hot Honduras heat, with no power and no A/C (and, incidentally, no shirt), he still manages to show up on-time to the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are. But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth ...

    The ruggedized Android dominating our thoughts for the moment may be the Galaxy S 4 Active, and while we're still waiting for much of this info we have on the phone to be confirmed, one item seems like a given: it's going to be expensive.
