Shifty Jelly co-founder and Pocket Casts supreme welder Philip Simpson and I break down the Samsung Galaxy S6. 

We of course dig into core features like the camera and fingerprint scanner, compare the Edge and normal models as well as detailing what we dislike. Phil and I also discuss configuring the device to the point you can almost squint and not even realizing you're using TouchWiz device. Almost.

Falcon for Android developer Joaquim Vergès joins me to discuss all things Twitter.

 
We discuss our feelings for the company given in light of us both having written Twitter clients that reached Twitter's API limits, and of course discuss the recent CEO upheaval. We also break down Twitter investor Chris Sacca's recent public post suggesting product changes the company might make to arrest the near billion people who tried yet bailed from the service, and each place our bets on "@Jack vs the field" for the next CEO.

Shifty Jelly's Russell Ivanovic and I dig into Apple's WWDC '15 announcements. 

We of course break down El Capitan, iOS 9, watchOS 2 and Apple Music, as well as Apple's persistence with bundling system app updates with OS releases, potential future implications of Apple Music's impending arrival on Android, what we didn't see that we were hoping for and more. Russell also tells us what it was like lining up for the keynote at 3 AM, something I myself am unlikely to ever experience in person.

Welcome to the very first episode of The Blerg!

My guest on this inaugural podcast is Karl Smith, and we dive deep into all of last week's announcements from Google I/O '15.

Android M of course gets a heavy doze dose of discussion, as does Google Photos and Now on tap. I also talk a bit about what it's like to attend I/O in person, and touch on what we didn't see that I was hoping to.
