Scrutiny is good [#acpodcast]

Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Jerry Hildenbrand are not lawyers, but they play them on podcasts.

As the team gird their collective loins for Mobile World Congress, OnePlus remains in the crosshairs of Internet outrage. But is all the anger justified? Also, who should the responsibility and cost associated with security updates fall to? Carriers? Phone manufacturers? Should customers have to pay extra for guaranteed updates? So many questions!

The crew also discuss the redesign expected for Android P, Oreo updates for the Galaxy S8, Essential's USB-C headphones, new emoji via Samsung Experience 9.0, and more. Listen up!

  • Of the 371 podcasts from AC over the years, I think I have listened to about 350+ of them. The last three however I stopped listening to during, and I think I am now done with them. Just wanted to drop a comment, just in case there was actually some concern over losing listeners, so you would know why. You should stop letting your politics show, or just come out and tell half your audience, like Kimmel did, that you do not want them to listen. Political episodes are one thing, and I can handle those or choose not to listen, but lately, it is derogatory political nonsense. Mostly from Bader. It has been informational, and a good run. Unfortunate to see you glibly waving goodbye to half your audience.
  • Love the podcast. Been listening for years and will continue to listen. Always find it informative and entertaining. With each passing show I don't regret my decision to buy a refurbished iPhone 6S from Apple almost a year ago. I don't miss the non existent security patches and paying for premium phones that don't have the latest software updates.
