This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we assess a new study that demonstrates just how devoted (or addicted?) many of us have become to our smartphones — to the point that some people wouldn’t give them up for anything. Seriously, not for anything.
We also talk about the hoax that fooled many major media organizations into believing that Internet Explorer users are dumb, and try to wrap our heads around a survey suggesting that Washington is Android country.
Joining us to talk about Bitcoin are Seattle entrepreneurs Mike Koss and Peter Vessenes, who share insights from their experience with the digital currency, explain the underlying economics, address some of the controversy surrounding Bitcoin, and offer their perspective on its long-term potential.
And in our final segment, the four of us talk about our latest favorite Android and iPhone apps.
