AotA 18: 100 Angry Nerds


“We want you to help us get our primes back to health.”

We proudly present to you, episode 18 of Attack of the Androids. Joining Mat Lee this evening is the full house. Jeremy Lesniak, Eric Finkenbiner, Joey Kelley, and of course, Seth Heringer. This is a great episode, starting out with the heartbreaking story of 100 heartbroken Asus Transformer Prime owners, all teetering on the edge of their seats for an update to fix the reboot blues. The Prime is a beautiful piece of hardware, the hopes and dreams of generations all kept warm in the these harsh winter days by quadcore hotness. Why does every device I get have problems? They say a prime will evolve traits of it’s owner. Anyway, there’s lots more Android goodness after the break, so take a listen and enjoy the show. Also make sure you subscribe to the new feed.

AotA 15: It Won’t Connect


“Who knows what goes through the minds of cellular executives.”

Attack of the Androids episode 15 begins and ends with a bang, and with it, the very last episode of 2011. Joining me tonight is Jeremy Lesniak and Joey Kelley. The rest of the crew will hopefully be back next year, assuming they don’t get blown up by explosions, or fireworks, or anything odd like that.  Also coming next year is our brand new website, so keep an eye out for that over at AttackoftheAndroids.com.

We start the show with a discussion about some interesting findings about one of the most popular Android messaging apps, Handcent. Hopefully we can have the author on the show next week to answer some of the questions we tossed back and forth. If I delete something on my device, it should be deleted, not stored in a database somewhere just in case. But, some might disagree. That leads to a short discussion on an article by Paul Thurrott comparing Android to Windows back in the day. Oh, and hey Joey, what’s RedTube? This sounds like another classic episode of AotA.
