Next week we will be treated to another Apple announcement. We assume it is new iPads. Chaim thought we will spend the show discussing the minutia details of the ipad, but it turned into Chaim being told that nobody cares.
Chaim decided for this week, he would do something different. He chose 7 random news stories, and for once he cared about their opinion. To get the female perspective we invited Kelly Guimont to join us.
Here are the stories:

Justin has a problem. He is “Android curious”. He is intrigued by all the interesting features Android has to offer, but loves the stability and quality of his iPhone. Sure, he jailbreaks, but still longs for more customization. It doesn’t help that he is entrenched in the Google ecosystem. Can Harry convince him to stay, or will Chaim, the once-and-former iPhone user convince him it’s time to make the leap?

Have you guys heard about these “tablet” things that are all the rage, because we’ve certainly never discussed them before. Listen as we wax poetic on the new Microsoft Surface Pro, how it stacks up against Apple’s new 128 GB iPad, and answer the question: Does anyone really need that much space?
Yes. Finally, we remember Dell still exists for all of five seconds before moving onto something more interesting.
