SMRpodcast #164 : I Definitely, Probably

SMRpodcast #164 is online and ready for download.  This week BlackBerry Live and Google I/O kick off and we dive right into BlackBerry news and Google rumors.

BlackBerry announced that that they are taking BBM cross platform and bringing it to Android and iOS.  There was no mention of BBM for Windows Phone or a desktop client, so, BBM wont' be truly cross platform.
There are rumors that Google will announce a streaming music service at I/O this week.  Chris wonders if, with so many other streaming options, it  will catch on beyond people who live completely in Google's ecosystem.  Robb thinks that even if it doesn't, so many people do live in Google Land that it is probably worth the effort…  And it beats Apple and Amazon to their respective streaming services
Windows Blue will be free, Amazon launches Virtual Currency, and Telsa sales are beating BMW, Mercedes and Audio in Q1.  We've got all this plus our picks in episode #164 of the SMRpodcast.
