Google messed up Daniel Bader’s Nexus 5 order, and that makes him sad. Truly, our guest from MobileSyrup and BetaKit deserves better than having half his hopes dashed by a UPS delivery man live on air. We’ve all ordered Nexus 5 smartphones like the Android suckers we are, and so we chat KitKat and what dreams may come.
Other topics up for discussion with Daniel, me and Chris Velazco this week include Samsung’s awful assault on the English language, Motorola’s Moto G mid-range phone announcement next week, and whether or not we’re too attached to our devices (i.e., the eternal metaphysical struggle of the gadget lover). So turn off your phone/Pebble/fonblet for just over half an hour and join us.
