    In this episode, we talk primarily about the release of Google’s Android phone. We compare it to the iPhone and contrast the different strategies and philosophies behind these platform’s respective application stores. Hey, how about an Amiga phone? We get into how two science fiction authors described the near future and how smart phones might enable this future--in Japan, of course, a new company is making this happen already!
