  • Well that's incredibly mature Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh please Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Okay stop already. We don't need the video. You don't need to look at some dudes talk. You can listen on GPM. Everything is going to be okay. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • It's not as much that as live Q&A which happens to be through hangouts Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3

  • I don't know what, exactly, you hope to achieve by acting that way, but it's not going to work out the way you think it might. It's time to grow up. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Meh.
  • I didn't "act" at all I just stated a fact. Also no Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • It definitely won't work out the way you think it will, he'll take his ball and go home! Or is that me now thinking I know how it will end and it won't end the way i think it will? Oh the wiley web he weaves!
  • Yeah I know it won't probably change much Phil can't be wrong after all. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Lol. Posted via the Android Central App on the Moto X Pure Edition
  • Probably time to step down. Put Jerry in charge, make Fisher the face and voice of the division. Phil, you have lost touch. It's OK. Good run, but time to put it in more capable hands. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lolz Posted via the Android Central App
  • Moto Z is a fail. But the Z force isnt. It being a verizon exclusive is though... Posted via Nexus 6P
  • I do kind of like the z force Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Moto Z is a fail. But the Z force isnt. It being a verizon exclusive is though... Posted via Nexus 6P
  • It's does modular better than lg and I would buy it. The USB c for audio is intriguing. Love for all things android and IT
  • Not a fan of USB C for audio but the modules are definitely a lot better than LGs. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Does the flashlight gesture work?
    the 2nd gen worked great, my pure edition doesn't work very well.
    I also want to get this new phone now, but will have to wait for the unlocked one. I will probably get all 3 mods.
    LOVE MY MOTO PHONES!!!!!!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Michael Fisher on point about Motorola. Posted via the Android Central App on the Moto X Pure Edition
  • This is a fail due to the lack of a headphone jack and the modules. Lenovo created a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. I wouldn't use this device if someone gave it to me for free. Posted via my Moto X Pure Edition using the Android Central App
  • DING DING DING Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Because the Moto Z forces you to buy extra stuff Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • Jusr say no to extra stuff. Especially ones that costs you money.
  • I'd go further, I'd say they created a solution to a problem they also created. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Tango moto mod? Flir moto mod?Take my money... if the come out with such useful mods this could get interesting Posted via the Android Central App
  • I love this web site and everyone associated with it.. Great people , But haven't listen to or watched a podcast since no video.... One might wonder why.. I don't know either.. Just my observation... But I'm nobody... Good luck..
  • I've noticed since they've only been focusing on the audio podcast the content has become much much better and informative. They are doing a much better job. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road.
  • Wasn't crappy before. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • I'm trying to be Mr Positive today. Rodeo time, time to get er on down the road
  • Not a bad attempt. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • really miss the videos. That's what i enjoyed and makes me smile and laugh with everyone. with audio i get nothing.
  • I must be having a shift in interests because I haven't been able to listen to a full podcast in MONTHS without getting bored. Time to uninstall the app too I suppose. Hrm. Oh well. It happens.
  • I wouldn't go as far as uninstall the app there are some great writers here and mods too and I love the community( Jerry in my favorite) , it's just this one guy.................. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Well that is news. I thought AC stopped doing a podcast. I check YouTube and nothing. Turns out they do still, but meh. Where is the video? Posted via the Android Central App
  • The amount of butt hurt about the lack hangouts video for the podcast, is kind of hilarious. It's been months guys, give it up. You're a change.org petition away from completely losing it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have no take at all
  • The comment section is more entertaining than the audio podcasts I don't even listen now but I like reading the comments it makes me happy Posted via the Android Central App
  • Having Michael Fisher back in my regular podcast rotation is great. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The title shows podcast 292, but the download shows 291. Which is right, or would a video have ironed that out? Posted via the Android Central App
  • No Posted via the Android Central App
