Episode 109

This week’s episode of The Voicemail starts off with Stefan being subjected to a game of “guess the smartphone” by James. Once that’s over, the two discuss: Square finally announcing chip-and-pin support, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, Instagram Bolt, Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Alpha, Re/code’s interview of the CEO of Best Buy, and Google Cardboard.

As always, feedback is greatly appreciated, and an iTunes rating would be even better. Everyone knows iTunes is the worst piece of software ever written, yet oddly enough, where you sit on Apple’s top podcasts list does great things to your listener numbers.

Episode 108

This week’s episode is packed. Starting with the news, James and Stefan discuss all the hype around wearables, the Kindle Fire Phone reviews, Apple’s financial results, Microsoft’s financial results, the new Nokia Lumia 530, Foursquare’s new app, Google’s new look for the Play Store, Motorola’s tattoos, the NVIDIA Shield, and finally the Xiaomi Mi 4.


But wait, there’s more! The two also answered listener questions: Why are U.S. operators so horrible? What’s OS X Yosemite all about? Will the iPhone 6 deliver on all the hype? Will we see Broadwell laptops this year? And what’s the last awesome app you’ve discovered?

As always, if you enjoy the program, then give it a rating on iTunes. Even if you hate iTunes, it doesn’t matter, because the more often The Voicemail is rated, the higher it moves up in the rankings.
