Chrome OS | The Friday Debate Podcast 011

by: Joshua VergaraApril 4, 2015

And to round out our double feature for today, we have the team back again for a round of Chrome OS talk. This past week (on April Fool’s Day, no less) we got a number of announcements regarding the Chrome ecosystem. Chromebit is a new platform that will put a fully functioning Chrome OS onto any HDMI-capable television, Chrome OS itself is getting some good Android testing capabilities, and Chromebooks continue to grow. And with all of that in mind, the team ponders: do Chrome and cloud based solutions make sense for the kind of users we are? With Jonathan Feist as the only one in the group sporting a Chromebook; Josh, Joe, and Andrew get a crash course on what could [...]

Sci-Fi Today | The Friday Debate Podcast 010

by: Joshua VergaraApril 4, 2015

Technical difficulties kept the Friday Debate Podcast from releasing last week, but after a lot of fiddling around with the audio, we’re bringing you a DOUBLE FEATURE this week for the FDP.

Today, Josh is joined by the usual group of hosts to talk science fiction – well, not necessarily sci-fi but instead the kinds of technology we wanted while growing up that we might be seeing today. We bounce around the ideas of jet-packs, virtual reality, smart homes, and all of their implications – while getting caught in a lot of tangents that make for one of the longest editions of the podcast we’ve had yet.

Come join us and don’t forget to [...]

Specs vs Experience | The Friday Debate Podcast 009

by: Joshua VergaraMarch 23, 2015

 

The flagship reviews and some technical difficulties kept the Friday Debate Podcast from releasing on time – but to be fair, we recorded this on Friday so it still makes sense! Jokes aside, we have Lanh filling in for Andrew this week as we talk about the age-old battle between specifications and user experience. With phones like the Moto E coming along with all of these high profile releases from Samsung and HTC, we talk about whether the general usage experience really needs high end specifications. We also ponder how raw specs drive perception of a phone. And finally, we touch upon the Uh Oh program that was just recently announced by HTC in which users [...]

Favorites of MWC 2015 | The Friday Debate Podcast 007

by: Joshua VergaraMarch 9, 2015

MWC was incredibly busy but the guys got together to talk about their favorite things from the show. Youtube reviewer Lanh Nguyen joins Josh with the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Darcy Lacouvee as they recount various happenings like HTC’s announcements and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Along the way, they reminisce about the beautiful and busy city of Barcelona, Spain, and even speak about video games. Darcy brings his business acumen to the podcast and gives us (and you) a look at some phone company inner workings.
