Time again for the Android Police Podcast. We're back this week (we were even live! catch us every Thursday at 5PM PST) talking Ouya (again), Samsung's crisis of design, and three new T-Mobile phones you shouldn't buy.

    Believe it or not guys... I subscribe to your podcast in Google Reader. Works fine for me. I just go from there and listen in Windows Media Player (stream or download the mp3). If I want to listen on my phone (which is rare) I use JustReader.

    500 PPI is a lot closer to a real paper than 300 PPI, which still looks like it's an LCD, but with tighter pixels.


    I still wish until the GPU's got a little better before they try this, though. In the meantime they should work on color reproduction and outdoor visibility.

  • Surprised Android User

    Listened to your podcast for the first time. I thought I had inadvertently downloaded an iOS podcast. It seemed the comments about Apple, and iOS were positive, and most about Android neutral to negative at least until the software reviews. I realize the "police" aspect but come on, you are an Android podcast, not iOS. I don't expect all positive comments about Android, but the emphasis should be on the positives of Android, not how good the major competitor is.

      While we are an Android podcast, we also do our best to be as fair as possible. This episode happened to be a deck stacked against us in a lot of ways. Between the Samsung v. Apple trial (where it's difficult to argue that Samsung is obviously blameless), and the discussion about creativity apps, we were sorta destined to end up talking about Apple quite a bit on this episode.

      We actually had some discussion internally about the volume of Apple talk this week, and we more or less agreed it was a little on the heavy side, so don't worry. We're as aware of it as you are. There's plenty of great stuff to say about Android, and we'll be ready and willing to say it on the next show. :)
