  1. Dear Kevin,

    I’ve been listening to your podcasts for several months using beyonpod on my nexus one. Just wondering if you have updoad podcast 238? Because beyonpod didn’t see any new podcast since 237. I do get all downloads from other podcasters. Thanks for the good job to you and also Mike.

      Hi Sam, thanks for listening! We had a technical issue with podcast 238 and lost Matt’s audio, so the only recourse is to listen on the Utstream channel. We did, however, just finish up the live show for the next episode and I hope to have that MP3 file available later today or tomorrow morning at the latest. Thanks again! :)

  2. Dear Kevin,

    I apologize for typing Mike instead of Matt… typing this on the small nexus one kb.


  3. Dang… Chat seems to be block at my end (w*rk)…

    Did I hear you drop a Sony-Ericsson LiveView heading your way? Well my friend, good luck with that!! :) After you had a few bits on watches I also bought a LiveView and a more old-school MBW-150 (Executive) as well. (I figured, even if it is not that great, I could use an elegant alternative). In the long run I was thinking about swapping the phone for a phone capable tab (like Galaxy Tab International Version), a headset and the watch. Not sure if this is feasible, but I would not mind trying this set up.

    The MBW works awesome. Few small glitches I don’t know what to do with, but nothing major or overly annoying. But the LiveView is completely useless. It can’t stay connected more than 10-15 minutes and it does not reconnect automatically. It is useless for all practical purpose.

    I did do a firmware upgrade after reading some comments but it did nothing for me. I hear that all folks with Gingerbread devices have similar experiences so it is not that my unit is defective. Much like you (and also for similar reasons) I am a Nexus One user and running 2.3.4 (or maybe 2.3.3 when I last played with the LiveView). One difference is that I use the AT&T version as I live in poor T coverage area, not that this would matter. If you can figure out how to make LiveView work, please-please-please let me (us) know. The LiveView would be perfect if it would just work as advertised.

    Best of luck for the testing. Let us know the results, ESPECIALLY if you can make it work.

      Sadly, I’m seeing the same issues with the Live View that you and many other people are experiencing. :( It’s a great concept but the implementation isn’t great, even with the firmware update.

      1. The firmware update did absolutely nothing for me. But I am planning to keep the device and hope that Sony fixes the issues with the next update. I saw notes on people having the same issues using a Gingerbread Sony devices (Arc was mentioned maybe). This means that Sony stopped being compatible with itself. Hopefully they will address this and the fixes will work on other Gingerbread devices as well.

        In the mean time, if you have a 2.2 device laying around, I’d love to hear about the disconnect issue using a Froyo phone/tablet. Is it really a Gingerbread compatibility issue? I am reluctant to downgrade just to test if the LiveView can be useful with an older version of Android.
