SMRPodcast #181: Chicken Wings And Beer Part 15

SMRPodcast #181 has been recorded, is online, and ready for download, and, for the second time in as many weeks, Robb and Chris hit your with a Chicken Wings and Beer episode.

The big news for the week was Apple absolutely crushing iPhone 5s and 5c estimates selling over 9 million new devices.  Robb absolutely called this one stating that the new iPhones would be the best selling smartphones ever.

More bad news for BlackBerry as the company wasn't able to release cross platform BBM for Android or iOS this weekend missing their “BBM this summer” promise.  The company also announced tentative plans to go private in a $4.7 million, $9 per share buyout from Fairfax Financial Holdings.

Microsoft announces the Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2 selling for $449 and $849 respectively.

Chris is intrigued by the new “blades” accessories but isn't terribly impressed with the specs.  Robb believes that, although MS won't do another $900 million write-down, the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, like their predecessors, will be miserable failure.

We've got all this, our, picks, and thoughts on a few new TV series in the fall line up, so, check us out and have a listen…
