Episode #242 of the SMRpodcast is online and ready for download. Rod is out, but, Chris and Robb are joined by Brent Harman.
This week we start the show off with something Robb has been itching to say for over two years. “I told you so” when it comes to Microsoft's Surface RT, which was taken out back behind the barn on Tuesday and put out of its misery. Although many people, like Chris, loved RT, the price, lack of apps, confusion it caused, and the fact that Microsoft had to write down over a $1 billion worth of unsold inventory lead to an unceremonious end to RT.
Outlook for Android and iOS came out this week. Brent is not a big fan of it because of its lack folder support. Robb loves it because of its calendar integration and the way it handles meeting invites. If you use and Android or iOS device and connect to a corporate Exchange network, you may want to give it test and see if you like it.
iOS, for the first time since 2012, has outsold Android in the U.S taking 47.6 percent market share beating Android by a tenth of a percent which has 47.5% share. Apple's percentage share of iOS falls right in line with the it having the most profitable quarter ever for any company in any industry.
We touch self configuring wifi routers, butane powered fuel cells, custom made Xbox One controllers, and, The Unofficial Apple Weblog TUAW shutting down. We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #242 of the SMRpodcast.
