Welcome back, MashTalkers! Pete is out this week, so Lance and I are joined by Mashable Product Analyst Ray Wong to talk about everything happening in the world of tech.
We kick the show off with a discussion about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 event. (1:15) Lance and Ray were both at the product launch and had some time with the device to see how it works.
The bottom line is that it’s a very, very good phone. In fact, RayRay says it’s the “best Samsung ever.” But make no mistake, it is expensive and the gang discusses how much it will cost (14:00) and how that positions the device.
Moving on, we dissect Instagram Stories (17:00), Facebook’s biggest play against Snapchat yet. The three of us talk about the blatant design rip-off and how this basically means Facebook has declared war on Snapchat. But RayRay isn’t feeling it and he rants (21:00) about what this means for his overall Instagram experience.
Closing out the episode, everyone has some fun talking about how Kim Kardashian has finally had to say goodbye to her BlackBerry (33:00). Don’t worry, Lance wrote up some excellent suggestions for what Kim should replace her Berry with.
And at the end of the episode, Lance and I share an (almost) tearful podcast goodbye. Don’t worry, Lance will be back in two weeks.
