SMRPodcast #149: Chicken Wings And Beer Part 8

With episode #149 of the SRMpodcast Chris and Robb bring you Chicken Wings and Beer 8.

Chicken Wings and Beer are the two man shows where Chris and Robb hold it down and talk about whatever comes to mind.

As far as mobile tech news goes, we talk about the the Surface Pro release date and whether or not Microsoft will eventually release a 7 or 8 inch Surface.  We also make note that the Nexus 7 is outselling the iPad in Japan and wonder if Apple will start to offer multiple form factors of the iPhone.

Chris and Robb both think that Cox Media's user controlled radio station is a pretty cool idea albeit few years too late, Google killing Active Sync is a scrub move, and, SMS replacement apps like Live, WhatsAppMessenger, Facebook Messenger, and Voxer are awesome.

We've got all this, plus, our picks in the 8th installment of Chicken Wings and Beer on the SRMpodcast…
