I was invited to be a guest on New Media Show 85 with +Todd Cochrane and +Rob Greenlee this Saturday.

We talked all about the audio and video podcast/new media space, what its like to produce shows for TWiT, YouTube's influence, the longevity of video podcast, and more!

Big thanks to Todd and Rob for the invite. It was a lot of fun!

Tonight's +All About Android:

+Myriam Joire returns and she has the LG G4 to show off with a hands-on preview!

Also, +Tony Hannides returns after a long time away! Will he break the Arena with yet another awesome game?

+Ron Richards returns and he will attempt to recite the lyrics to the entire Morrissey catalogue in 20 minutes, by heart.

And me, I'll be there too. NBD.

5pm PT at!!!

Android App Arena 42: File Explorers

I took a close look at three modern file explorers for Android. Navigating your directory structure has never been prettier. (can't believe I just typed that.)

Cabinet BETA (FREE)

Solid Explorer File Manager ($1.99)

FX File Explorer ($2.99)

Kong (FREE)

+Crístian Deives I agree with you on that. I'd love to find one that hits the middle ground, looking good whilst still having a lot of features. Maybe one in this list has that, I'll check it out.

If you haven't voted, then there is no vote that has been placed for you. How's that for logic?

I really cant phatom why anyone would:
1. Be allowed to vote on an app so soon after a review
2. Vote on an app so soon after a review, WITHOUT ACTUALLY trying it or reading other user comments
3. User comments (from Google Play Store) SHOULD in future AAA shows be read - good AND bad - as part of the review process.  Many apps in the past were obviously mere promotional reviews, as the PLay Store in those cases had not even half a dozen comments, and ALL were GLOWING opr OGRASMIC (for some of the most whack apps, too)

Other than playing the games we spent hours typing in, my dad and I played mostly Infocom games like Zork I-III and Starcross. To this day I fear grues. ;-)

I must say, the G4 really impressed me. Except for dat leather.
Last night's +All About Android with guests +Myriam Joire and +Tony Hannides joining +Ron Richards and +Jason Howell.

Hands-on preview of the LG G4, the expansion of Google Now for third party developers, Project Fi, we say bye to the Nexus 7, and hello to Facebook's new Hello app, and more.

Great show, g4 looks really good. Also not a fan of the leather but the black leather does look nice. My main gripe is the size especially now that the bezels are not even that small compared to previous LG devices. Btw +Jason Howell​just watched your s6 before you buy review. There's a good use case for the heart rate sensor. Basically you can just touch the heart rate sensor to act as a shutter button when taking selfie, I suspect it will create less shakes than trying to press the volume button. Regarding the QHD display, I agree at 5" it is overkill and I would much rather have 1080p but where I do think the QHD makes sense is for the gear vr, the higher the dpi the better the vr experience. As for battery, I really don't know why they didn't just make it as thick as the camera bump and added in a 3000mah battery. They just had to be slimmer than the iPhone.

I would vote for Manual camera, but as Sony decided not to include Camera2 API in their Lolipop updates for Z2/Z3, I can't use it.

If there's one thing I'm most proud of in my professional career, its that a single episode of All About Android has inspired so many people to try to draw the poop EMOJI freehand. (this is but one example)

Our work is done here.

Alternate title: Breaking Poos
How on Earth did I forget to post about this week's show?! It was a blast.

+Ron Richards and +Jason Howell welcomed back +Brady Forrest to the show. Along with a ton of great news discussion, Brady brought along some super interesting gadgets from overseas... and the recurring theme of the show... belongs in the toilet.

Since I already have an N6, this seems like it might work in my favor.  For where I live this would give me better coverage as T-Mobile's 3g/4g coverage isn't the best when I start roaming around my area (lots of deadspots for 2g as well).

I'm on wifi probably 85-90% of the time so that would keep my data usage down.  I really like that that Google is also converging the experience onto tablets and computers utilizing hangouts too.  Now you don't have to have a seperate number to utilize Google Voice to really put it all to use.
