SMRpodcast Episode #204 is online and ready for download.  This week we are back to a full crew as Robb returns from vacation.

There wasn't a lot of tech news over the last week, however, Cortana, Microsoft's new Siri-like personal smartphone assistant was unveiled and Rod was completely mesmerized by it's features.  Cortana comes out next week and Rod is waiting with the anticipation of a school aged child with just a few days until summer vacation.
Amazon has launched Fire TV, a media streaming box to join the ranks of Roku, Wii, XBOX, Apple TV, Chromecast, TiVo, Slingbox, Belkin TV, smart TVs, and a bunch of other streaming sticks and boxes. Needless to say, Amazon has entered a crowded space with the Fire TV, so it will be interesting to see how the company fairs with its $99 device.
 
Windows 8.1 Update 1 was released, Gogo increases in-flight WiFi to 70 Mbs, and we stray off into a tangent about window seats and sleeping on planes.  We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #204 of the SMRpodcast.
