Re: who is broadcasting from the kitchen?
I think that was Mark. Makes it a bit more authentic doesn't it?
Re: would you
We have done a couple of episodes as Google+ Hangouts which are available on YouTube. I'd like to do more in the future. Do you think video is a better media for these discussions?
I'm in no position to defend HP on all of this... but parts of this are not accurate.
"HP has apparently dropped support for both Amazon EC2 APIs and private cloud Eucalyptus tools. The AWS EC2 APIs are widely used and have become a de facto standard for building cloud apps."
Contrary to what Eucalyptus and AWS want you to believe, EC2 API's are *NOT* the defacto standard for anything other than instances being built on AWS. HP (or any OpenStack-based cloud) do not have to have to incorporate EC2 API's. Additionally, most OpenStack clouds being built today have no interest or requirement to use AWS EC2... it's a red herring argument.
Re: high end hardware
The Galaxy Nexus will NOT be updated to KiKat - http://www.engadget.com/2013/10/31/google-galaxy-nexus-kitkat/
But... I think this is by design. I bought my Galaxy Nexus almost 2 years ago and contract will be up soon so I'm guessing the road map will continually end every two years to encourage upgrading. I'm jumping on the Nexus 5 just to avoid the bloatware that's more common now on high-end smartphones.
Re: Transcript please
Great suggestion and it's something I've kicked around for awhile but only one other person ever requested it. I'll look into it again.
Re: Worst PR in the Tech Industry? I think I can trump that:
OK... I think this tops Huawei's PR... good find
Re: Came to article expecting secret sauce
LOL, that is awesome.
Let me say... Chris Lynch was definitely "well done" during the podcast.

I would love to... but I'll be in London 2 weeks beforehand at the Dell Storage Forum
Great Comments, Thanks
I love all of the comments, thanks.
First, you cannot simply sideload a Google app... have to first install the Google Services Framework apk first. I have instructions for this here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/113139726938588189465/posts/3UZGtF8H9aU
The problem is, your typically Kindle Fire user is probably not tech savy and probably won't want to take these extra steps to sideload apps.
I also have a post on 'must have' Kindle Fire apps here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/113139726938588189465/posts/ZaKkJKMbLba
Ultimately I think this is an Amazon AND a Google problem and it's all about control and licensing for the app market... be it Amazon's or Google.
Shame on Google for putting hooks in stand-alone apps like Gmail that require Google Services Framework (you don't need the Google Services Framework for the iPad). Shame on Amazon for not making popular Google apps a part of the Kindle Fire user experience.
One other note - the Kindle Fire OS is a "wrapped" version Android and not a "fork" as Linux users understand forks.
