Android Central 291: Live from Taiwan, it's Computex!


Gosh darn it, obviously they are in Taiwan (traveling) plus it is widely known that there is only audio in that god forsaken country (terrible quality at that)! They made a deal with the devil just to get a few high quality VIDEO reviews done over there on the YouTube channel. I don't even want to know where they had to hide those cameras!

Keep up the good fight brother!

According to the Editor-in-Chief of Windows Central, video podcasts on Mobile Nations are over because they weren't making enough money out of the YouTube videos to justify the "trouble" of "dealing with Hangouts".

It's a shame, really. Mainly because I simply have zero patience to listen to people talk. Which is why I don't listen to Podcasts. With the video, at least I was entertained. So well, best of luck for them going forward. I'm out.

No one knows, they tried with an explanation but no one believes it, and rightly so. I'm sure they will have video for podcast 300 though

I don't miss the video podcasts as I now listen to the audio ones on my work commute.

I listen to podcasts only when driving. I couldn't care less about video.

Keep up the good work!

They used to podcast like crazy, back in 2010 when I first tuned in. It was a hoot, lots of followers in the chat room on Friday evening. They were young and hungry back then. But, inevitably, they got lazy, switched to afternoons, then to Thursdays, bagged the chat room and Live format, and now they can't be bothered with video. They got old, they have families, they just aren't as hungry. It's not a new story. RIP the weekly live video podcast.
