The Droid Life Show: Episode 41 (Special 2PM PT Time Slot)

dl logo show2

We’re back once again this week with another episode of the Droid Life Show, however, we’re running this week’s live broadcast at a special 2PM Pacific (5PM Eastern) time slot. Due to a scheduling conflict, we’ll miss our regularly scheduled time, but since the Nexus 5, Kit Kat, and Google Glass have been in our possession for a few days, we didn’t want to leave you hanging. We definitely have a lot to talk about in terms of these three items. So, join us at 2PM Pacific for episode 41!

Today’s show kicks off around 2:00PM Pacific (5:00PM Eastern). A live video broadcast will be embedded below closer to the start of the show. Until then, feel free to hang out in the Droid Life IRC room.

    Anyone with a nexus 5 get a chromecast icon stuck in the middle of the screen in the youtube app during playback? It seems like this happens to me when i click a youtube video from within a browser (like above) and choose the youtube app for playback. if I just go to the you tube app and search for it and play it, it doesn’t happen.

    Agree about the icons being too large. I have been messing around with changing the DPI in build prop. And find 440 to be quite a bit better for Me. Looking forward to nav bar height mods as well. I find it to be a bit large for my liking.

    How are you suppose to use Google Glass for turn by turn directions when police are giving out tickets for wearing it while driving? Police claim wearing Google Glass falls under the law that prohibits a Monitor in the front part of a vehicle which was put in to place in the 80’s to prevent people putting TV’s in the front of the vehicle that would distract while driving. Even though cars are built with monitors in them now with digital stereo and maps and internet in luxury cars. Also wearing headphones while driving is illegal too because it hinders your listening for traffic around you, like trains and cars honking.

    Kellen, make sure you contact your local police department to make sure its not illegal to wear them while driving.

    I like Tim’s taste in phones

    (I went White One X to all black Nexus 5. And they are both beautiful phones).

  • Cory Pitkavish

    not a show with out ron

  • MikeSaver

    Needs more Ron!

    • carluverdrm2004

      Agreed. I missed having Ron on there tonight. It was nice having Dave, though!

  • Radgatt

    damn i missed it thinking it was regular time

  • d790

    Stop bashing Ron for having an opinion. he actually makes valid points if you really sit there and listen. you may not agree with him, but don’t get your panties in a bunch

    • Alter

      Don’t worry, I was being sarcastic. It’s good to have differing opinions on the show, it makes for some interesting discussions.
      I do wonder how Ron feels about the Nexus 5, now that it’s official.

        It looks better than I thought aesthetically, but it’s not my favorite design. I’m trying to get my brother to chose it or the X over the Note 3. We’ll see what happens.

    K: “Hey Tim, you can follow me into public washrooms with your spy cam”

    • CaptainHowdy13

      Tim should follow him with his galaxy gear. To be more sneaky

  • Alter

    I can’t wait to hear Ron talk about how Nexus is unnecessary.

    • tomn1ce

      Notice how he’s not on the show today. I think he’s hiding in a corner somewhere

      -_-

      Then again it’s early so he might be at his full time job.

      • http://ronoffringa.me/ Ron Offringa

        I am stuck at work, unfortunately.

        • tomn1ce

          That’s what I thought.

        • michael arazan

          You actually work? What about all that Moto X and Apple money
          = P

          • http://ronoffringa.me/ Ron Offringa

            It’s all icing on the cake of computer consulting work.

  • Hayden7200

    Can you guys call this “Droid Life Show: Episode Bush Sr”?

    • Kyle

      I don’t get it…

      • Hayden7200

        George Bush Sr was the 41st president. Kinda of a dumb joke but I thought I’d throw it out there anyway, what with it being hump day and all.

        • Kyle

          Hump day…what’s tha. JK, I see where you were going with that now. I don’t really know my presidents.

          • Hayden7200

            Other than Washington and Lincoln I don’t really either. But I think Bush Sr is sometimes referred to as Bush 41 to distinguish him from his son. That’s what happens when guys in my office listen to talk radio!

          woot woot!

  • Rand Paul 2016

    Can you embed the audio only for download too thanks

    • Jonathan Reid

      That doesn’t generate any ad revenue!

  • Kyle

    Love me some Nexus, mine won’t get here for a few weeks!

    • S2556

      Got my shipping email notification during the show!
