SMRPodcast #151: Grown Man Phone

SMRpodcast #151 is online and ready for download, and, is the first time in over a month where Rod, Robb, and Chris are all on the show at the same time.

This week we talk a lot about the Surface Pro and how Chris almost didn't get one day one. Robb and Rod both believe that RIM, err, uum, BlackBerry, isn't doing itself any favors not offering BlackBerry 10 devices in the U.S. until March.  And, we all wonder why Google's Eric Schmidt dumps over 40% of his stock all at once.
We've go all this, plus, Chris tells the story of how Scott Hanslemen's Amazon account was socially engineered, and our picks, in episode #151 of the SMRpodcast.
