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 phone unlocking and then move on to listener questions about OTT services, Android switchers and Samsung’s influence on Android.

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.

    Wow! I can’t wait to see the Samsung 4!!! No, I am not leaving my iPhone since I am addicted.

    But to those who purchase the Samsung 3 (my family member), you should upgrade immediately! LOL!!!

  2. Samsung has steadily overpowered iOS market; bigger screens, flashy interfaces, more interactive operating system and never ending range of apps are the things which is causing “I’m leaving iPhone” trend. And to strike another blow there are news of Galaxy SIV about to be launched. If it happens soon, it will almost knock off iPhone.

    And, will they be back with larger screens? Remember that losses run in both directions, and usage of features creates strong bonds. My take is that people who “browse” more than use apps are more inclined to enjoy Android. Those who use apps as the interface—iOS…

    Samsung’s Galaxy S line is the strongest Apple’s iPhone challenger, and they’re now coming up with a new model, the Galaxy S IV. This amazing smartphone will allow its users to control it with their eyes! Samsung will be trademarking a technology called “Eye Scroll” and “Eye Pause”.
