SMRPodcast #144: Freestyle

It was a laid backed 144th episode of the SMRpodcast, and, since it was a slow news week right before a long holiday weekend, we recorded unscripted without show notes. After talking about fried, smoked, and, exploding turkey's, we finally get into the tech news. We talk a little Windows Phone, Windows 8, and ponder who Google could have omitted the month of December for Android 4.2.

We also talk about Play Lists, the Xbox ESPN app, and dumb features left out of mobile apps. We've got all this, our picks, and, more in episode #144 of the SMRpodcast.
