Hello and welcome to another Friday. It’s a scorcher out there, AMIRITE? But we’re here to cool things down a bit with yet another episode of the TechCrunch Gadgets Podcast.
This week, Microsoft revealed that no one actually wants the Surface RT. Meanwhile, Google earnings call placed a focus on Moto X (and we also just like to talk about it). Finally, TechCrunch invaded Seattle just yesterday with the TC Meetup + Pitch-off with over 900 people in attendance.
John Biggs, Jordan Crook, and Chris Velazco discuss all this and more on this week’s episode.
We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcasts every Friday at 3pm Eastern and noon Pacific.
