SMRPodcast #93: I Guess I Will Be Eating Ham…

Episode #93 of the SMRpodcast, I Guess I Will Be Eating Ham, has been recorded, posted online, and is ready for download.  This week we welcome special guest Allison Sheridan from the NosillaCast podcast back to the show.  In this episode we talk Kindle Fire which is selling like hot cakes, although, reviews have been a bit less than stellar.  To compete with the sub $200 price tag, Research in Motion, for a limited time, has dropped the price on the BlackBerry PlayBook  to $199.  We also talk a bit about the HTC Titan.
