127 weeks after we first started our podcast with the episode that Google buys Motorola, we have now come full circle. In a very interesting episode, no one has any real feelings either way, but of course we love to discuss the whole deal for thirty minutes.
Editor’s Note [Chaim’s audio is low for whatever reason]
For a second week in a row, Google showers us with updates. We first start off with the Motorola G, a $180 smartphone from Motorola. We go over the specs, and decide if it is worth it. Next we play some inside analytics with Paul, where he explains to us the changes to Google Analytics. While it doesn’t affect us, it affects the webmasters trying to get higher rankings. Finally we trying to figure out if Justin will forego his therapist’s couch for his own couch by using Google helpouts.

On tonight’s episode we tackle three hot topics of the past 10 days. How did Justin like his brand new Nexus 7? Is it his gateway to Android? Chaim has had his ChromeCast for a few days. He weighs in with his thoughts. How did the Moto X fair on launch day?
Did you know that our first episode we spoke about our thoughts on Google buying Motorola. Almost two years later, we revisit that topic. Has Motorola provided us with anything that we want or need.
We wrap the show up with Samsung buying Boxee, and what that means
Parents, you’ve got to catch episode 57 of inThirty – do you really want your son or daughter starting the school year without being able to explain the differences between the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD and the Motorola Droid RAZR HD? We didn’t think so. Chaim takes us through the ins and outs of Motorola’s new crop of devices while Harry snores. Some are shipping with Android’s latest release, Jelly Bean, but most, unforgivably, come from the factory with the out of date Ice Cream Sandwich. Harry wakes up in time to gush over Nokia’s newest Lumias, all of which sport Windows Phone 8, or at least will, when they ship, but no one knows when that’ll be. Finally, Justin longs for an Amazon based smartphone, even just so he can tear it down. Oh, and wait, isn’t Apple going to announce something in a couple of days? We cover that, too. We don’t want your kid to show up on the first day of school not knowing the specs of the iPhone 5, after all.
