This week’s call in podcast answers your questions about a Samsung smartwatch, Google Reader alternatives, carrier software updates on unsubsidized phones, and nifty Galaxy S 4 features that could find their way to the Galaxy Note 2.


It’s another edition of the weekly call-in show where we answer your tech questions. We start off the show with some commentary on Samsung’s reported smartwatch and then answer questions about a merger between Chrome OS and Android, unsubsidized phones and software updates, Google Reader options and Galaxy S 4 features finding their way to the Galaxy Note 2.

To be a part of the show, just call in and leave a voicemail at 262-KCTOFEL. If you do, we’ll play back the question on the show and answer it. Or you can tweet me at @kevinctofel on Twitter. Each week, I’ll answer as many questions as I can while keeping the podcast to a manageable amount of time: 20 to 30 minutes at most.
