With the long holiday weekend upon us, Tim and I have gathered here today, live in front of an audience, in celebration of Android and all that we are thankful for. Actually, it’s just the Droid Life Show episode 42, but it’s important dammit. We have a Nexus 5 review to talk about, the site redesign that went live Monday, a bunch of holiday deals on the horizon, which phone(s) is dominating the DL community at the moment, 4.4 updates to a variety of phones/tablets, and more.
Today’s show kicks off around 3:15PM Pacific (6:15PM 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. (more…)
Episode 40 is going down tonight with the return of the Droid Life Show! Who is ready for the ultimate hypebeast show? We all have Nexus 5 on the mind, plus some Kit Kat, so we’ll have plenty of it on tonight’s get-together. Other than those new goodies from Google that should arrive any day (more than likely tomorrow), we’d like to talk about Phonebloks and Project Ara, new Google Glass, 4.3 updates for Samsung phones, maybe even some new iPads, and more. It should be another good one that you won’t want to miss.
The show kicks off around 6:00PM Pacific (9:00PM 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. (more…)
At any moment, Google should begin their “A morning with Google+” event which is streamed live to the world on YouTube. We’d imagine we will see lots of Google+ talk, new features, both web and app related, and probably not much else. This doesn’t exactly scream “Nexus event!” to us. One report already suggests that we’ll see Auto Awesome for videos, a feature that has been available to photos on G+ for some time. Other than that, the rest is not confirmed.
There is apparently some sort of power outage at the Google-plex this morning, so the event hasn’t begun yet. It should start soon.
The crew is back at its normal time and place tonight for The Droid Life Show, and we have a good one for you. We will be going over all of the new Android 4.4 and Nexus 5 goodies that have hit the web, in addition to HTC’s announcement of the One Max and Nike’s distaste for the Android ecosystem. On top of that, we will cover the staff’s favorite apps and games of the week, so be sure to tune in. (more…)
Tonight, the DL crew is back for episode 38 of The Droid Life Show. We will be covering topics ranging from our recent Galaxy Gear review, to Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy Round smartphone. On top of that, we will need to talk about some of the crazy Nexus 5 rumors that have been circulating, plus touch on the full service manual that leaked onto the web. Big things are happenings in Nexusland. (more…)
Episode 37 of The Droid Life Show goes down tonight! Due to some traveling, we had to skip last week’s show, so you can expect a topic-filled show this evening. Kellen and Tato both have Galaxy Note 3 devices, so you can expect plenty of discussion surrounding the formation of the Note 3 cult, as well as Tim’s thoughts on the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. In addition, we will go over all of the recent leaks surrounding the Nexus 5 device, and of course we will give you our weekly app and game recommendations. (more…)
With Kellen traveling last week for the reveal of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch, we were unable to do a Droid Life Show. Now that he is back, and Apple has gone ahead and unveiled the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C yesterday, you can imagine that tonight’s show is going to be packed with excitement and debate among the staff.

Yes, dear friends, the day has come. It’s time to revolutionize something, probably fonts on a phone that was released last year which now has a fingerprint scanner and a champagne finish. It’s iPhone 5S day. At 10:00AM Pacific, our favorite Apple execs with limited descriptive dictionaries will take the stage, use bold white lettering with numbers that only they understand, because they are in categories that only they have deemed important. They’ll take shots, but so will we. They’ll invent this and that, while forgetting that most of us have been doing this and that for ages. I cannot wait.
Let’s live blog this piece. Join us below. (more…)
