SMRPodcast #162: Because I am Me

We are a day late, but, SMRpodcast #162 has been recorded, is online, and is ready for download.

We have the full cast this week and jump right into the news with thoughts on BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins, actually saying out loud that he believes tablets will be obsolete within 5 years.

For the first time, more messages were sent via mobile instant messaging apps like WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Messenger than on SMS.

The entire crew believes WWDC selling out in 2 minutes is stupid and that there has to be a better way to be able to attend.

We also dig into why Chris thinks standing in line at a Red Box kiosk is stupid, talk about the new Switch to Windows Phone Android App, and learn why some websites can't use special characters in passwords.

We've got all this, our picks, plus, our own Rod Simmons releases his first Windows Phone app in episode #162 of the SMRpodcast.
