Gadget Lab Podcast: Suddenly, There’s a New Mobile OS In Town

This week we got more details about Microsoft’s partnership with Cyanogen. The two companies plan to deliver Android devices pre-loaded with made-in-Redmond apps and services. This isn’t just a big deal for Microsoft—which will now be able to expand its mobile services reach far beyond the confines of Windows Phone—but it’s also gives us a sketch of a possible Android future that’s further outside of Google’s grasp. Also: cool new phones! And we’re way into that. The hosts discuss the possible outcomes for the mobile industry. Also on this week’s show, David and Michael consider the future of Best Buy, a retailer that’s seemingly stuck in the past. Lastly, some critique of Twitter’s new home page, which just got a facelift.
