We brought back the guys from Pocketcasts (the best podcast app out there) to discuss the differences between WWDC and Google I/O. After that, we talked about running developer betas and the problems that are associated with it. We always like having the Pocketcasts guys on.
Just like pre WWDC, we talk about what is going to happen at Google I/O. Also like our pre WWDC, we couldn’t contain the show to just half hour. Instead of taking notes, we just winged it. You got thirty minutes of us trying to figure out what I/O is going to be this year.
Chaim had to interrupt his Passover Sedar to sign up for Google I/O. Why would he do that when he could just have waited until later that night? Well in a weird series of events, Chaim was trying to beat the algorithm and get ahead of others on the I/O lottery.
This topic came from a recent episode of ATP.fm where Marco, John, and Casey explain the best ways for doing this. There show is two hours, ours is thirty minutes. While they are all smarter than us, we break it down in a “more fun way.”
Did Chaim get into I/O? Did Justin become the new Pope? Did Harry say something nice about non apple anything? Tune in on this week where we talk Google, Google, Google. First we discuss whether Chaim got into I/O. We discuss the problems with Google Wallet, and all the other issues with it. Then we delve into the other announcements of the day. What will happen with Android and Chrome now that Andy Rubin has stepped down. FInally we discuss all the spring cleaning problems Google let out today.
All rested up and jetlag free, Chaim shows us the swag he managed pilfer from I/O. Episode 48 of inThirty (that’s right, you can now listen to a full24 hours of our yammering) makes Chaim out to be like a kid on Christmas morning as he gives his thoughts on the Nexus 7 and whether it’s cool even for those of us to have to actually buy one, the Nexus Q and its curious spherical shape, the best way to sell a Galaxy Nexus on Craigslist, and the best way to earn Google merit badges at a developer conference.
Also, Chaim promises that if enough listeners review and subscribe, he will auction off one of his Android jelly bean containers.
