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?
We took “Breakfast with Sundar Pichai,” and finally digested it. We present with you with the inThirty nightcap. Which of the big three announcements is the most important. Is a Nexus 7 worth it. Is Chaim’s assessment that Android OS is now taking a backseat.
While it’s still a possibility that an iPad with a 7 inch screen may never make it outside of Jonny Ive’s secret industrial design compound, it doesn’t stop us from talking about every inch of the yet to be announced device on episode 62 of inThirty. Whether it’ll be called the Mini, Nano, Small, Little, Micro, or Petite, Chaim, Harry, and Justin conjecture, speculate, and postulate about how the device’ll fit into Apple’s current range of mobile products and analyze the impact of screen size on how users consume their digital diets. Want to find out the best screen size for playing Solitaire or reading the Wall Street Journal or mixing the musical score for a feature film? You better search Google for the answer because we come to no conclusions on this episode of inThirty. Oh, and less is more, sometimes.
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.
