Earlier this week, Brian and I sat down at recapped some of the recent mobile announcements at CES, as well as other things we'd been working on over the holidays. We talked about the new Mac Pro, NVIDIA's Tegra 5, the new Pebble, Brian's first Sony smartphone review sample, the big T-Mobile announcement and more. In addition to that, we were able to grab Intel's Hermann Eul (VP & GM of Intel's Mobile/Comms group) for about 10 minutes and got him to talk a bit about SoFIA, 64-bit Android and more.

I had hoped to get this up right away, but getting access to enough bandwidth to download the 3GB source and then put it on YouTube in between meetings was far more difficult than I expected (particularly during the day when available bandwidth at CES was beyond limited). 

The video is embedded below, I hope you all enjoy it! 

Update: After popular demand, we have also published this as a podcast for our mobile listeners

    Excellent. Will check out after work.

    Anand, is there any news/update on getting a audio only version? Are there background reasons why they haven't been made available?

    It was just a matter of time; it takes some time to catalog these mobile shows and package them as podcasts. The podcast version (with time indices) has just been published.

    Excellent, thanks very much :D

    Does having the audio only download affect how the metrics work in terms of revenue/popularity? Or will it continue to be provided as a "do the right thing and the people will come" mentality?

    I don't want to put words in Anand's mouth, but when it comes to the last couple of mobile shows we've been at said trade show, which makes it difficult to get the time to also push a podcast out the door.

    Yep I can appreciate that Anand is usually pressed for time. Awesome to have it this time around.

    My question didn't really get answered but I guess that information might not be available to share.

    Have to say I prefer the audio only version as podcasts, much easier to listen when I am on the move.

    I much prefer video since I like to watch expressions as well as listen, but then I'm rarely mobile when I'm enjoying a podcast.

    I don't have either a smart phone or tablet - or any other kind of mobile device - is it really such a problem to play a video on them and just listen to the podcast without watching it? Or is this just a data usage problem, mobile users dipping into their data plan allotment need as small a file as they can get?

    A video podcast is completely frivolous and a waste of space when I am listening to it while driving.
  • freedom4556 - Monday, January 13, 2014 - link

    Yeah, I listen to these on my commute, and a video version would be a waste (mostly of cellular data, grrrr AT&T).

    The other thing is, a podcast is downloaded beforehand and listened to whenever, unlike a youtube stream, so we can get the podcast on WiFi and listen later. To my knowledge, there is not a video version available as a podcast, so it must be an iTunes/re-editing time issue.
