  • Idea for next podcast?!: Your opinions on the T-mobile HTC HD2 and all the reported problems. The HD2 was greatly anticipated and released to a wondrous fanfare. Some weeks down the line a lot of people are complaining that it's a dog. Matt Miller wrote recently about his reasons for dumping it (;post-3704). XDA developers have a massive list of tweaks on their site suggesting it was released with more holes than a swiss cheese. Do Phil and Mal have any thoughts on this? Great tech podcast. As a Miserable Brit I like the irony and the irreverent tone. Other US podcasts are too earnest and wholesome for my palate.
  • Downloading podcasts in advance is also easier on battery life, as I only update the podcasts when I'm plugged in or about to be.
  • At least once in the last two weeks I took the HD2 I'd use it to press the power button to lock the screen and only to find I could not open the device (with a shift left or right). I had to pop the battery and return it to the times of day and age, you need to do in this modern world-class smartphone.
