SMRPodcast #183: The Tech Pimp Game

SMRpodcast #183 has been recorded, is online, and is ready for download.  This week's episode was fairly laid back show.

We start off with a conclusion to the story of how Rod went to battle with his cable provider over a $250 fee that he didn't feel he should have to pay.
Nest has a new $129 smoke/carbon dioxide detector.  It's a bit pricey for a smoke alarm, but, folks who really want a Nest because of the “cool tech factor” won't mind.
There are pretty credible rumors that the iPhone 6 will come with a 4.8 inch display.  By the time it comes out it will just be an average sized display, but, significantly larger the the screen.
The HTC One Max is coming to Verizon on October 15th, potentially bringing Rod back to Android.  Robb has already purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but, is still going to check it out.
Chris bumps heads with the “you need a spot guy” at the gym, HP and Google come out with a new Chrome Book, and Yahoo! has a very familiar looking new email design.  We've got all this, our picks, and, more in this weeks episode of the SMRpodcast
