SMRpodcast #284: You Did A Kanye

Episode #284 of the SMRpodcast has been recorded, posted online, and is ready for download.  We've got a full crew this week as Rod returns from vacationing in Hawaii.

We start the show of with talks of Rod's vacation and just how much snow was dumped on the East Coast last week and how Chris's broke his back being a wonderful neighbor, clearing his neighbor's driveways for them.

Google may be about to remove SMS from Google Hangouts and it is safe to say that no one has any idea what it is trying to do with its mobile IM client strategy.

Windows phone sales plummet to an all time low in the US.  Is Microsoft still a factor when it comes to Smartphones?

Apple misses analyst estimates while Microsoft has a pretty good quarter, Rod goes to the shooting range, Layoffs are coming to VMware, and, cloud computing is changing the look of data centers.  We've got all this, our picks, and more in episode #284 of the SMRpodcast.
