One of the nice things about the current monoform world of slab smartphones is that there are very few moving parts to break. Until, that is, you decide to defy common sense and stick your brand new Galaxy Note 5's S Pen into its silo backwards. That's when life stops getting funny ... and starts getting real. Join us for a debate on whether this is an example of terminal user stupidity or inexcusable design flaw, and then stick around for all the news of the week in mobile technology, from the new Nexus to the new Lumias to the old (and now dead) Fire Phone.
All that –plus your listener mail– awaits below on episode 163 of your favorite tech podcast! So whip out your stylus, because the next episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is chock full of Note-ables. Watch the video broadcast from 12:00pm Eastern on August 28 (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version the Monday after we broadcast. And don't forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!
