WPCentral Podcast 130--now with video!

We're back this week for another exciting podcast. We go over this week's big news, software updates, Jay rants a few times about Xbox LVIE games and we cover some hardware news. We should also note we're doing the podcast not only live on Monday's but now with video (and very soon with HD), so you can creepily watch us instead of listen.

In fact, after the break not only can see the show notes, but you can watch the podcast. Welcome to the future!

  • It's weird you guys don't have a podcast tab on your site. Podcast 129 isn't even tagged as "podcast" or "129". On the bright side your podcasts are great, looking forward to hearing this one.:)
  • Wow, you guys put a Podcast tab in.  Nice. Time for me to visit some of your advertisers.
  • Hey fellas, got a question for you if you're so inclined.
    Found this forum post of a guy complaining that the Focus S with mango can multitask 9 apps, but his original Focus could multitaks 15? Is this true? Any idea why this is?  Thanks
