In this week’s podcast, Shawn DuBravac and Ross Rubin weigh the pros and cons of Palm’s new phone that is more than a smartphone but not intended to be a primary smartphone. The sleek device should attract those willing to pay a premium for a calmer and lighter mobile experience. We also talk about the new Focus smart glasses and compare its trade-offs to other augmented reality products to advance the early work of Google Glass. And we close out with a discussion of Tim Cook’s comments about privacy to the EU and how they fit into Apple’s positioning.
