SMRPodcast #228: A little social talk

SMRpodcast episode #228 has been recorded, posted online, and is ready for download.  We’ve got a full crew this episode after a 1 week hiatus last week.  We start the show off with a Chicken Wings and Beer type flair as we ponder what “probable cause” really means while Robb and Chris recollect on not so positive encounters with law enforcement.
Rod gives us the rundown on what he likes about his new iPhone 6 Plus as well as what he doesn’t like.  Robb and Rod both believe it to be the best camera phone ever, but, but aren’t overly impressed with the the latest version of iOS.
We discus the the DropBox security breach and strongly encourage all DropBox users to change their passwords and use 2-factor authentication if possible. Creating a new, strong, unique password for DropBox is a good start, but having something you know (your password) as well as something you have (cell phone) is better.
Skype launches Qik, a new video only messaging app, Chris completes his cutting of the cord by cancelling his Direct TV subscription,   Samsung misses earnings estimate by 60%, and Google is about to announce a new Nexus Phone and Nexus tablet.  We’ve got all this, our picks, and more in episode #228 of the SMRpodcast.
