Many technology enthusiasts end up playing tech support for their friends and families. Often our loved ones rely on us to make the right choices for us, when it comes to a meaningful purchase of a piece of tech. Vernon and David talk about some new devices for their family members on the horizon.

Also, the two hosts ask for listener feedback, and, (dare we say it?) ask for you to take action!  

Thanks for listening! We always appreciate your feedback and interaction.

We DARE you to leave a review of the podcast. :-)

Have a wonderful week! Stay mobile. 

Sep 14, 2016

This is one of the very few shows that we've recorded without putting together any host notes. We just share an enjoyable conversation. Miraculously, Surface AIO, Word Flow for iOS, Cerulean Mobile, HP Elite X3, and Microsoft Ignite do manage to work their way into the show. Below are the details. Enjoy!

Vernon reminisces about the Glance and Go podcast episode with Sean Johnson in which he had to re-record an entire episode because he powered off his PC. Hear "Passing The WinPhan Baton" here.

The phrase "Poop in a group" rears its ugly head.

Graphics Interchange Format debate returns. Our polarized opinions of the topic turn to a surprisingly mild, polite, and politically-correct argument.

Somehow we discuss iTunes reviews. Speaking of that, please take a moment to give us a review!

Side note: Choosy moms and choosy dads choose Jif.

Fortunately for you, we did actually talk about an upcoming Microsoft product, and we even have an inside tip on it! (Surface AIO)

Is a smartphone an all-in-one device?

David empties his download folder. Somehow we make a useful (you decide) conversation out of it. Vernon's download folder sulks away in shame.

Wharton Brooks' Cerulean Mobile is still having a meetup, but it has been postponed. If you are interested, be sure to follow and engage with them on Twitter @CeruleanMobile

What specs do Windows Mobile enthusiasts need to be satisfied with their phone?

Vernon forgets which laptop he wants. We both discuss what we need in a laptop, which was obviously not something we prepared for. Anyone have an extra Dell XPS 13 they need to liberate?

Is the HP Elite X3 a good enough device? Should it be reviewed "as-is", or is waiting for the update a fair thing to do?

Elon Musk's automobile line makes a quick cameo.

The Microsoft Ignite Conference is happening, September 25th through the 2

Surface Smiths will be interviewing Windows Insiders at the conference!

Vernon will be attending as a member of the press

We share a pure unadulterated geek moment.

Old cheese product versus old real cheddar. There is no contest.

"Leave the gold. Take the cheese."

David's music pick is Tape 5

Vernon's app pick is Word Flow for iOS

David recommends Clamour again, the new third-party Discord app, which doesn't seem to be in the Store quite yet. Expect it soon!

Stuff they don't want you to know is Vernon's podcast pick.

Tip of the Episode: "Fake it until you make it"

Sep 8, 2016

This week we have a little bit of everything. David has finished his mod and it is now available for your enjoyment! Vernon shares his newly-revealed addiction to old cheese.

Both of us are truly excited about the news that WhartonBrooks has a new Windows 10 Mobile device in the works, going with the brand name of Cerulean Mobile. If you click only one like in these show notes, take a moment to check out their progress by listening to the WhartonBrooks / Cerulean Mobile podcast on Soundcloud. Also, you can search with the term "whartonbrooks" in most podcast apps. Be sure to follow them on Twitter: @ceruleanmobile or @whartonbrooks. Like them on Facebook: Cerulean Mobile & Wharton Brooks, and check out the FAQs for Cerulean Mobile. We are super excited to learn more about this as the journey continues!

Yes, we talked about the newly-announced Apple mobile device. Well, mostly we just told you to go back and listen to episode 45 where Vernon and David debated the merits and downfalls of wired and wireless headphones. Enjoy it here!

Skype Teams has been leaked. We spend lots of time gushing over it and picking it apart. Making fun of the GIF sharing mechanism was the easiest part.

 

Thanks for listening! If you enjoy the show and don't want to miss an episode, be sure to subscribe using your favorite podcast app.

Vernon and David discuss Twitter and Slack feedback.

We discuss how to disconnect Facebook apps

Windows Phone apps like Amazon are going away, but UWP app versions are coming out

Darrell gets an Xbox Live gamertag: TowJam 

Fitbit and Health Vault no longer integrate

Discussion about using Microsoft apps or 3rd party ones as the primary app

Yammer apps have gotten updates on iOS and Android 

Third party Discord app Clamour coming soon to Windows Phone

App picks: Vinci photo app, Clamour Discord app

Music picks: fun., "I Can, Can You" Vanessa-Mae 

Podcast pick: Archive 81

Twitter tip: replying to your own tweets 

Aug 31, 2016

Chances are that if you regularly listen to this podcast, you are probably running Windows 10 on your main PC. The fact remains though, that many people are still using Windows 7 on their work devices. On this episode, Vernon and David compare the two operating systems, how they use them differently, and their favorite features of each version. Personal app, music, and podcast picks are also shared as usual.

Thanks for listening!

Vernon and David have been super busy lately, and there was an initial snafu with this episode's audio, but here it finally is!

  • The two catch up a bit, share some insights from the recent Anniversary update, and
  • David shares more about the secret project he has been working on, and Vernon shares a bit about a substantial family event and a unique weather situation.
  • Double-Tap-To-Wake for the Lumia 950 and 950 XL continues to get rolled out. "Extras->Touch" to enable if available.
  • David got a standing desk at work, which he has tricked out with Microsoft goodies.
  • More Continuum thoughts are shared.
  • Vernon and David dig deep into the "Dos" and "Don't" of mobile image capturing and sharing. ("Dig Deep" is code for "Rant, with a few morsels in insight")
  • While recording the show, Vernon un-expectantly encounters a great feature of Windows 10 which prevent unintentional password locking. Naturally, the conversation transitions to password curation.
  • The pair finish off the show with their app and music picks, and you will need to come back next episode for some podcast recommendations.

 If you have something you'd like to share with the show, reach out via Twitter @MSMobileShow, or contact the hosts individually at @VernonEL and @DavidVKimball.

Microsoft employee and friend of the show, Darrell Prichard, joins Vernon and David for another round. Few filters are utilized, which is true to form.

The three talk about recent Groove updates, Groove failures, and legally sharing music through OneDrive.

Butter seems to get mentioned much more often than usual.

The new Skype UWP is available, but only for those willing to jump through a few hoops. Nevertheless, it is well worth it.

The show wouldn't be complete without personal app, music, and podcast picks.

Also, there is one particular app not on Windows Phone/Mobile that we make a point NOT to mention. You're welcome.

We really hope Darrell's manager lets him come back on the show again.

Jul 14, 2016

On this episode of the MS Mobile Show, we discuss the fact that as popular as Pokemon Go is, it is unlikely that the hit game will make an appearance on Windows Mobile anytime soon if at all.

We also discuss the reappearance of the Lumia 1520 on AT&T for what we consider to be an outrageous price for a 3 year old phone and much more.

We appreciate every one of you who listens to the MS Mobile Show on a regular basis. We love the interactions as well. Without you the listener, the show becomes a pair of guys rambling on.

The show is produced and accessible for you at absolutely no cost to you other than time to listen.

While we love to bring this show to you, we would love to be able to have some more fun and have the ability to be able to buy things like T-shirts, coffee mugs, devices and software to be able to do regular giveaways like other websites and podcasts.

To do this, we would ask if you could spare as little as $1 per month ($12 a year) to help us achieve this in 2016. As many listeners as we have, according to our stats, we could do some serious giveaways if every listener signed up for just $1 per month.

As always, thank you for listening and/or watching!

We are pleased to be joined by Sean "WinPhan" Johnson on this episode of the MS Mobile Show! Both Sean and David V. Kimball have held the "WinPhan" title over the last few years, so it is a treat to have both of them on the same show at the same time.

We also are a little light in the show notes area this week, so we apologize for that. A lot of great discussion about some of the latest Windows Mobile device news along with talking about the fast pace of fast ring builds for both mobile and PC.

As David mentioned in his disclaimer at the beginning of the episode, he had a bit of an audio mixup.

But hey, mistakes do happen right? Regardless, Vernon & David bring you another fun filled episode discussing some of the recent news and other things going on in the world of Microsoft.

After the Father's Day weekend, Vernon and David kick off the show talking about how the weekend was for each of them. Vernon has gotten his replacement Band 2 finally and that leads to a discussion about friends and the challenges feature with the Band 2.

This might be a little light on tech news discussion but we have a feeling that you are going to enjoy hearing these two this week.

We appreciate every one of you who listens to the MS Mobile Show on a regular basis. We love the interactions as well. Without you the listener, the show becomes a pair of guys rambling on.

The show is produced and accessible for you at absolutely no cost to you other than time to listen.

While we love to bring this show to you, we would love to be able to have some more fun and have the ability to be able to buy things like T-shirts, coffee mugs, devices and software to be able to do regular giveaways like other websites and podcasts.

To do this, we would ask if you could spare as little as $1 per month ($12 a year) to help us achieve this in 2016. As many listeners as we have, according to our stats, we could do some serious giveaways if every listener signed up for just $1 per month.
