    This is exactly why I just unsubscribed from this "podcast" and website because I really don't want to be brainwashed by some Apple & Android fanboys who can't be specific what's wrong with the platform. Reply

    BTW. I have an iPhone 4 which is laying at my desk drawer but I use my Nokia Lumia 920 "feature phone" for my personal use. Reply

    I just got through listening to the first part (episode 22) of the double header.
    I really appreciate the smaller file size. There is virtually no difference in quality, and now I take a smaller hit to my data cap on those occasions I'm downloading over LTE on my HTC One and not via passthrough or WiFi.

    Also, I listened to the two Brian Klug podcasts with Rene Ritchie of iMore. I like the cross-platform discussions and roundtables, it would be great to see more inter-site podcasts and discussions about technology and where manufacturers and developers are taking us in the next few years.

    "At some point" Microsoft might be worried about cannibalization? It was the whole reason why they didn't port WP8 to tablets, and instead went with a more crippled version of Windows 8 (Windows RT), so they can charge $90 to OEM's for it, instead of $10.

    But this has backfired anyway, because $90 licenses, and the more expensive hardware needed to pair with Windows RT, which makes such tablets very uncompetitive with Android tablets, and even iPads (which tend to have better specs at the same price, too - no "retina" in Surface RT? Really, Microsoft?).

    The point about friction on windows phone is exactly the opposite of what I have found. I am surprised how often I don't bother to pick up my Android 4.1 tablet and use my Lumia 920 instead. The interface is better and I don't notice any speed deficiency. Android has a lot of friction to me, and it seems like some sites work well with one browser while others like another. In fact sometime I use my windows phone even when I am very close to a full blown pc. My wife even uses her old Samsung focus rather than picking up the tablet or using her pc way more often than I expected. Reply

    Apparently you're in the majority of windows phone users... Which don't include Anand and Brian. Reply

    Is there a download link somewhere so I can listen to this in my car? Reply

    If you're using your phone, check out podcast apps which allow for streaming/downloading of podcasts specifically. If you're on Android, I recommend PocketCasts, but there are numerous options. Reply

    Also, at least in Chrome I'm seeing download links right below the main episode player. Reply

    Hey Brian...

    I disabled WIFI and had Synology DS Cloud syncing with my NAS... enabled over 3G...

    in 1 hour the 3G syncing had swallowed 40% battery on my HTC One

    I've had multiple experiences where the Phone gets extremely hot and the battery drains like 1% every 20 seconds ... mostly while browsing the internet.

    The episodes has somewhat stopped after getting 4.2.2 - but the batterydrain is still extreme on the HTC One :-(
