April 16, 2015

The wonderful Dan Seifert joins me on episode #110 of my podcast (1 hour 1 min), in which we rant and rave about the HTC One (M9), the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Apple Watch, and more… We also share our excitement for the upcoming LG G4 and Microsoft apps — yes Microsoft!

Note: I’m well aware that the video version of this podcast ends suddenly after just 27 mins. Something must have happened during the Hangout on Air. I’ve reached out to Google for support and hopefully the full video will be restored.
