SMRPodcast #150: Chicken Wings And Beer Part 9

In episode #150 of the SMRPodcast, Chris and Robb hit you with installment 9 of Chicken Wings and Beer and is the second 2-man show in as many weeks.

Robb is all giddy about the Jan. 30th release of BlackBerry 10 and has committed to switch his number over to the new BlackBerry and leave his GS3 in the drawer for at least a couple of weeks while he tests is out.

News that the Microsoft Surface Pro will ship with as little as 36% of the advertised storage on the 64 GB model and Chris explains why this isn't as nearly a big deal as it's made out to be.

Robb and Chris both admit to being able to watch most any movie with explosions and fight scenes, but, reminisce on how bad the movie Haywire was…

We talk about Twitter's Vine, ponder why Google gets crushed by Amazon in Android tablet sales, and discuss if Microsoft will eventually buy Nokia.

We've got all this, our picks, and more, in episode #150 of the SMRpodcast…
