SMRpodcast episode #215 has been recorded, is online, and ready for download. Â This week it's just a two-man show Robb and Rod as Chris Ashley is sitting on a beach somewhere in North Carolina.Â
We start this weeks show off a a recap of Google's annual developer conference, Google I/O, which took place last week. Â At nearly 3 hours long, the first day keynote had quite a few announcements. Â The big ones being the announcement of Android L, the next generation of the Android operating system, Google Fit, Android's new health and fitness tracking service, and a showcasing of smartwatches.
We also talked about Google TV, which neither Rod or Robb thinks will do better than Google TV unless someone comes out with a set top box or HDMI dongle that can plug into existing televisions.
There were a couple of tech related Supreme Court rulings over the last week. Â The first was Aereo losing and being told that its business model of providing consumers free, over-the-air, broadcasts via a physical antenna which consumers rent from Aereo violates the copyrights of the broadcast networks. Â The second was that police do need a warrant to go through a suspects cell phone.
Google buys Beats rival Songza, Google Apps are now directly compatible with MS Office apps, and Microsoft adds Perfect Forward Secrecy for Outlook.com and OneDrive. Â We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #215 of the SMRpodcast.
Rod's PickÂ VivinoÂ – Wine recognition and discovery App for Windows Phone
Robb's Pick: Â BeyondPod Evo BetaÂ — Â Podcast Catching App for Android
