SMRPodcast #153: Chicken Wangs And Tech

Episode #153 of the SMRpodcast with special guest host Terrance Gaines, a.k.a. BrothaTech, is online and ready for download.

It was kind of a laid back show this week, but, we touch on a lot of tech, including our thoughts on mobile App development, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with phone capabilities, and the PlayStation 4 announcement.

We also wonder what the heck Marissa Mayer was thinking when she called for an end to telecommuting at Yahoo!, and if Samsung selling almost 40% of Android devices is a bad thing for Google.

We've got all this, plus, our picks in episode #153 of the SMRpodcast…
