Crying for Kim K's BlackBerry
August 5, 2016•56 min
Welcome back MashTalkers! Pete is out this week, so Lance and Christina are joined by Mashable Product Analyst Ray Wong to talk about everything happening in the world of tech. They get stuff started off with a discussion about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 event. (1:15) Lance and Ray were both at the product launch and had some time with the device to see how it works. The bottom line is that it’s a very, very good phone. In fact, RayRay says it’s the “best Samsung ever.” But make no mistake, it is expensive and the gang discusses how much it will cost (14:00) and how that positions the device. Moving on, the gang dissects Instagram Stories (17:00), Facebook’s biggest play against Snapchat yet. They talk about the blatant design rip-off and how this basically means Facebook has declared war on Snapchat. But RayRay isn’t loving it and he rants (21:00) about what this means for his overall Instagram experience. Closing out the episode, everyone has some fun talking about how Kim Kardashian has finally had to say goodbye to her BlackBerry. (33:00) Don’t worry, Lance wrote up some excellent suggestions for what Kim should replace her Berry with. The episode closes out with an almost tearful on-air goodbye between Lance and Christina. Don’t worry – Lance will be back week after next.
