Stuff comes up, folks. Sometimes you’ve got a pressing appointment in Romania, or a meeting scheduled in Media, PA. Sometimes you’re at the day job, other times you’re off the grid somewhere in the country. Other times you’re buying a car. These things happen.

Fortunately for us, these things don’t usually happen all at once, which means the Pocketnow Weekly podcast usually features more than two people on the air. But today, listeners, Lady Luck was not with us. Today, Sam the Scheduler was out sick, because every member of the Pocketnow team was otherwise engaged when it came time to talk tech.

Everyone, that is, except Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera, and your venerable host. Not wanting to leave you hanging midweek without your scheduled dose of gadget geekery, we teamed up to discuss the Facebook Phone, our recent reviews of the Galaxy Note 8.0 and HTC One, Lumia 928 and iPad 5 rumors, and a piece of listener mail that involves the word “sexy.” All that and so much more await you, so don your ballcap and stick some Big League Chew in your cheek: this week’s two-man ballgame of the Pocketnow Weekly is about to run the bases. 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!
