SMRpodcast #279:

Episode #279 of the SMRpodcast is online and ready for download.  Rod is out this week, but, Chris and Robb are joined by Terrance Gaines, a.k.a, BrothaTech, and we don't miss a beat talking tech and stuff from the past week.

This week's show almost has a chicken wings and beer feel to it as we start off the show with talk of Ronda Rousey getting epically knocked out by a perfectly placed roundhouse kick clean to right side of her face by Holly Holm.  We also talk about Cam Newton dropping the “Dab” on the Titans during his end zone celebration.

Once we get to tech we talk about why the iPad Pro really shouldn't be compared to the Surface Pro 4 and we explain why Apple has seen declining iPad sales for 7 consecutive quarters.

Chris is loving his Coin 2 digital credit card but small vendors aren't embracing it or mobile payments from NFC enabled smartphones.

Google+ has rebranded itself… again… and is now focusing on groups.  The entire crew is pretty skeptical that Google has the right sauce this time, but, think that Googe+ has the best interface and features of any mobile social networking app.

Robb goes off an a tangent about Slack,  Terrance is piloting a new video podcast, and Chris wants all skip laggers in Destiny Public events to be flogged.  We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #279 of the SMRpodcast.
