  1. hey I’ve been hearing a lot regarding the benefits for the 7″ form factor, and one of the most tablets I saw in shelves in Europe is the Archos 70 Internet Tablet. Have you both had the chance to review it? what do you think about this tablet? I know it is a 2010 gen but I consider a good option for price/performance.

    1. The Archos 70 is certainly worth a look for its price, but I don’t think it yet supports the full Android Market without a hack. As long as you don’t mind tinkering a bit with the device, it could certainly work, depending on your needs.

  2. Kevin, thanks very much for the video. It’s the old adage of a picture is worth a thousand words. But, slow down your movements. We listeners cannot take all of it in as quickly as you think.

    1. Appreciate the feedback and I’ll try to slow down a bit! :)

  3. Just watched this as the next one just downloaded. If audio disasters happen, please still put an audio rip into the podcast. (You guys did it once, or just posted an mp3?) I don’t have time to listen to these in front of my computer. But your podcast is great for commutes. What kind of a mobile tech podcast is that ties me to my desktop. (Watching this in a mobile browser is like pulling teeth. At least it is on the N1, the phone we both have… :) Thanks.

    1. I hear you – we lost half of Matt’s audio track on episode 238 (and I forgot to click the record button in Ustream, which is our backup plan), so there was no way to provide an .mp3 for that one. Shouldn’t happen again and the audio files would always allow you to listen on a mobile device. We’re just experimenting with the video now, but the commentary has been positive so far – if we plan to continue video, I’ll look into a mobile-friendly version of the video podcast. Thanks for the feedback!
