We’ve all played a little Xbox, but how many of you ever got your hands on a Zune, or a Kin? Microsoft’s getting back into the hardware game with the Surface tablet and on episode 63 of inThirty we get into, about, and under the soon to be released device. We talk pricing, features, make predictions on future market share, and add to the overall confusion about the two different versions of Windows, RT and 8, that’ll run on this new entrant to the tablet market.

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.

Patents, piracy, probate, and prudence, jurisprudence on this week’s podcast. Please don’t take the title too seriously – on inThirty episode 56 we examine the red tape that’s been sticking to things all over Silicon Valley lately, and try, as only we three can, to cut through it. Apple sues Samsung, Google sues Apple, the RIAA sues Joe Schmoe and we take a look at the impact overall. We also try to figure out if you really can patent curved corners on rectangles.

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 full 24 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.

Watch out Jim Cramer, on episode 42 the boys of inThirty are here to milk your bull and shave your bear. We get to the bottom line and cover the Facebook IPO (find out if any of the hosts have a finger or two in Zuckerberg’s pie), Samsung’s contract to build memory for Apple, layoffs at HP, and advise our listeners on how to setup tax shelters in the Caymans.
Maybe we should have called this episode IPO: We Don’t Know, instead but we’d already used that line.
