The Droid Life Show: Episode 2

Welcome to episode 2 of The Droid Life Show! The show starts promptly at 6:00PM Pacific (9:00PM Eastern).

During tonight’s show, we are giving away three (3) Nexus 7 16GB tablets to lucky members of the DL community, all thanks to our friends at NVIDIA (follow them at @NVIDIATegra). In order to enter, all you have to do is watch the show and hang out in the chat. We’ll choose our three winners from those hanging out in the chat room towards the end.

Everyone ready?

    For those who have children to manage and other random intefernce during show time, I would like a clear link to watch the episode at a later time–even with the understanding no prize is avIlable. You seemed to have a better back link to the first week’s show. Searching for this week toom me through loops of referrences to both weeks with no clear path to watch the week 2 show. Maybe this is part of the issues you are considering after your problems with the second episode. As your interesting show grows, a landing spot with links to recet shows would be greatly appreceited.

    Great job guys. Ron, I really enjoy your insight & thoughts when asked to comment on certain topics. Tim, stop trying to be funny bro..it’s not working for ya. When you make everything a joke, your comments become null & void. Not trying to be rude just give honest feedback.

  • Rich

    What is funny is that you have beats audio headphones… What a POS and a waste of money…

  • George

    Great show. All four of you guys are sharp and intelligent. I hope Google is paying attention to your site and show (they should hire all four of you for brainstorming alone). My last two phone purchases have been based on your articles. I’m not the smartest tech person and I try to keep with learning stuff on your site but I did not know how to go into chat to win one of the Nexus 7s.

  • Seth Schorr

    Why does Ron say that you can’t use the Nexus 7 in landscape? It works great in landscape! I do use it that way often.

    • JoshGroff

      Maybe the homescreen, but that was made rotatable with 4.1.2.

    • http://ronoffringa.wordpress.com Ron Offringa

      You can use it, but like JoshGroff said it was added in an update. I think the reason it was an option from the beginning is that the N7 doesn’t work well in landscape compared to a full 10 inch tablet because of the shape of the display.

    So were we supposed to be logged into IRC chat to be eligible? I was on Google+ AND droidlife.com. ???

    Apologies for the technical difficulties tonight. Second show, learned a bunch of stuff. Overall, I thought the show went well, but the web client for the chat couldn’t keep up with the massive amounts of people we brought in for the contest.

    We will have more contests, potentially one next week. We will also find a more stable option for people to chat along.

    Again, apologies for the issues tonight, but we greatly appreciate you all coming and joining in on the fun. Come back next week!

  • http://twitter.com/sciaid Sciaid

    Tim can you post who you chose if they didn’t answer you. Tons of us kept getting kicked off.

    For the record, IRC is fine; it’s been fine for decades and Freenode is a very powerful and tech-friendly high volume server.

    The issue is that web sockets are not nearly good enough compared to a native app with access to the TCP stack to handle the requests. Recommend an IRC client for the next shows and get moderators to help lead discussions and limit massive spam messages.

  • Sakebomber77

    Damn thing kicked me out

  • mustbepbs

    Why wouldn’t they just pick someone from the comments instead of trying to wrestle with the stupid IRC client?
