SMRPodcast #127: Tone Deaf

Episode #127 of the SMRpodcast was just a two man show with hosts Rod Simmons and Robb Dunewood, however, we hold it down while the big fella, Chris Ashely, is enjoying his vacation. This week we get right into the Research in Motion rumor that the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook is set to go on sale by the end of the month. Rod got a new Samsung Galaxy S III and immediately finds a few things that need to be updated. And Apple didn't change the 30-pin connector just tick everyone who already don't like Apple off. We've got all this, several awesome picks, and Robb has a story about why non-technical people should never buy computers from yard sales.
