AotA 71: Notification Overload


“We’re old enough to know that when you sext, you mean it.”

Another week another episode of your favorite Android podcast, AotA. Mat Lee here with Shane Brady and Seth Heringer for episode 71. Be sure to join us on the Google+ community for fun Android related stuff all week long. Can you even handle that much Android? On tonight’s show we talk about the most expensive Android phone you never want to buy, sexting, the Galaxy S4 rumors, Google Now, Google TV, the Android 4.2.2 update, plus this week’s app picks. Thanks for listening!

What’s the magic number? How many mobile choices can there be? Android, Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry? It’s getting a bit crowded. Seth shares some thoughts on why the Z10 isn’t going to be enough. RIM has no strengths, and it’s system needs to be amazing for this to be compelling in any way.

Check out this complete pile of rose gold trimmed crap. I bet the screen is nice. And I kinda wish my Galaxy Nexus was coated in bullet proof titanium. The sad thing is, for $9,600 you can’t even get the latest Android OS. This is ICS, and because they skinned it, it probably won’t EVER get updated. Check out the article here.

What do you think about disposable picture sending apps. Here’s a story we talked about regarding the snapchat beta. Seriously, are you a spy? Who’s using this?

Seth shares with us some rumors on the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Android Authority has the article here.

Seth gets school on Google Now. See, we’re all learning something today. Now say Google.

Shane talks about the Vizio Co-Star Google TV 3 update. Why are they not moving all in with this? At least there’s always YouTube. Check out the article here on Android Authority.

Let’s talk about TV. What are you watching? Cord cutting FTW!

Android 4.2.2 is coming to a Nexus line near you. I got it on my Nexus 10 Wednesday night. It’s super awesome. Android Police has an article about it here.
