SMRPodcast #190: Tablet Germs

SMRpodcast episode #190 has been recorded, is online, and ready for download.  It was an extremely laid back show this week, as I think the entire crew is still recovering from tryptophan overdose after the Thanksgiving Holiday.

There wasn't a lot of tech news over the last week, but, after talking about our dislike of Chittlens (Chitterlings), we did talk a bit about the 60 Minutes interview of Amazon's Jeff Bezos and his dream to deliver packages to your doorstep using autonomous drones.

Applebee's is going to start rolling out tablets to each table to allow patrons to quickly enter in their drink and appetizer orders, but, the entire crew is kind of grossed out by it becuause it doesn't seem very sanitary.

Time Warner Cable is now offering HBO and 20 more channels starting at $29.99 per month in a new Starter TV with HBO package.  The cool this is that you can use this package even if you are a cord cutter and is the cheapest way to get HBO.
iOS user buy more stuff online that Android users, Instagram is talking about adding chat features, and Chris's son almost drove over his brand new Lumia 1520.  We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #190 of the SMRpodcast.
