Two shows in one week–a Gadget Lab first. David and Michael discuss changes to Twitter’s platform, the new devices from Pebble (including that cool little Spotify player), the updated wireless sports headphones from Jaybird, and a new design for Boosted’s ubiquitous orange-wheeled electric skateboard. Also, at the very beginning, David offers his own advice on how to get your phone stolen while you’re at the beach.
Some notes: We’re trying something new this week and offering a brief rundown of the contents of each episode at the very beginning. You, our listeners, have asked for this, so please tell us if it’s helpful. We’re pretty sure it’s helpful, and it only takes about 30 seconds. Also David’s laugh at the very beginning sounds a lot like the roadie on Dark Side of the Moon.
