  • The still image of the podcast it makes Daniel look very umimpressed with everything.  Starting to listen now that I'm on my lunch break. 
  • Hey Guys,
    I spoke to Nokia yesterday on Live Chat and they told me to expect it early February as they will begin the global rollout,
    Also I think Daniel nailed it when it comes to how a Phone should look and feel, LG is not exciting enough and Samsung need to do more like the Omnia 7 which was aluminium shell it actually felt really nice, the Lumia series 800 - 920 are excellent the polycarbonate unibody does give the phone a solid and expensive feel, also they just look dramatic and awesome which makes them exciting and interesting.
    LG are just generic, they should just call themselves Le Generic for making generic phones that dont differentiate well.
  • Is there anyway to get the video feeds for the podcasts within the app? I know you can get the audio, but I think I have to go back searching through articles to find the right one to get the attached video.
  • If it weren't for the exuberant amount of misanthropy (or just general disdain for anything breathing), I was going to ask "Who are you and what have you done to Dan?", although you do look a little like some straight-edge hardcore enthusiasts I know...
  • Hey guys great show just quick question I was wondering if you guys heard anything about the enthusiast program announced back in June 2012 for windows phone 8 where we can sign up for early updates and not wait for carriers with the upcoming Apollo plus update I would love to see this. Thanks guys keep up the great work.
