Last week we had a poll which asked how many hands you tend to use while using your phone. We had some great responses, of which some were quite surprising. David and I ended up discussing in depth, so if you are interested, go back to last week’s episode at msmobileshow.com/008. You can also see the poll results at … http://msmobileshow.com/008/
A special shout-out to Vernon’s brother, Pete, who recently discovered podcasts after years of badgering from his big brother. So far he has been listening to the Dave Ramsey Show, and maybe, just maybe, he will be listening to this episode on his Galaxy S4. He did recommend the app Podcast Addict, which can be found in the Google Play store. If you hear the show through your Android device, let us know which app you prefer!
Another shout-out is in order to Robert Shurbet, also known as The Cheeky Taurus. As some of you know, I have been debating on which phone I would use to replace my wife Anna’s Lumia 920 that recently died. Robert was willing to part with a device of his for a very reasonable price, and my wife and I thank him for that. Thanks!
