SMRPodcast #165: Lil Bit 9.0

BlackBerry Live and Google I/O are over, the Xbox One has been announced, and episode #169 of the SMRpodcast has been recorded.

This week the crew jumps right into with talk of the Xbox One.  Needless to say, Chris and Robb are on board and eagerly anticipating the launch.  Rod is a bit concerned that the new Connect is always listening to you.

A lot of coolness came out of Google I/O last week.  Robb really likes the photo features added to Google+ and Rod comes around and admits that the animated GIFs are “kind of cute”.  Chris is still all about posting images to Facebook, as is most of Earth.  It will be interesting to see if all of the new Google+ features can get more people to use it.

Yahoo! picked up tumblr for $1.1 billion and promises not to screw it up, Flickr is now offering a Terabyte of storage for free, and Skype is no longer a secure means of communication.  We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #165 of the SMRpodcast…
