Hello from Cornwall, UK - Ian Waring
Hi Ian! Show is starting... - Robert Scoble
Happy Friday! - J.C. Bouvier
I love Alexia - Francine Hardaway
Alexia getting the SG rookie treatment! - Tom Guarriello
dude, that Texas comment was harsh. We do have internets in Austin - Chris Hale
google fibre is coming - Kevin Marks
No one can say what they don't know - Francine Hardaway
yeah, and I got notice from TW i am getting a free bump to 300 megabit package this summer - Chris Hale
Alexia is a great reporter. Listen to her try to find out - Francine Hardaway
Be smart, Robert! - Tom Guarriello
No chance. That's such a bad alternative - Francine Hardaway
Pick one: IBM, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Google, Amazon.com, EMC, VMWare, Red Hat or Dell. - Alex de Soto
Be careful Robert - Francine Hardaway
Google is "dumping" cloud space - Francine Hardaway
What's Dropbox going to do? - Tom Guarriello
redundant array of inexpensive cloud services - Kevin Marks
dogs chasing the cat here - Kevin Marks
always liked the name alexia. Dont know why - Chris Hale
Nice sound effect about internal Apple conflict, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
Was I OK. - Robert Scoble
Robert - yes - Keith Teare
Nice tapdancing, Robert - Tom Guarriello
Good job Robert. Alexia's smile could have done you in. ;) - Alex de Soto
Anyone see Robert's old friend @chamath on Bloomberg TV stating that Apple is screwed - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i saw that - Chris Hale
Right Kevin. I will go back to IOS if there's a bigger screen - Francine Hardaway
Can we read anything about Beats into the Re/Code #CodeCon speakers list which includes Eddy Cue & Iovine? http://recode.net/events... - J.C. Bouvier
I want to see a "gorgeous" 4K display from Apple. - Alex de Soto
Good catch, JC - Francine Hardaway
Alex - the Dell UP2414Q is actually nice on a Mac - Keith Teare
i wonder if people are smart enough to see through the marketing hype of a beats/apple pairing - Chris Hale
If Apple is screwed then what about Microsoft - Moe Glitz from iPhone
how does this keep happening? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Keith: Noted. - Alex de Soto
i mean if people will be smart - Chris Hale
im perplexed as to how this chat keeps spliting - Tina Chase Gillmor
JC - we can read that Kara and Walt have pulling power - Keith Teare
wave to the bigger chat here. ;-) - Ian McGee
Two chats going on? - Tom Guarriello
Stay here... - Francine Hardaway
Angela will take that Beats brand big... - Tom Guarriello
I think Apple's iWatch is wuickly becoming irrelevant. - Francine Hardaway
Don't think Johnny Ive is too keen on this Beats deal - Moe Glitz from iPhone
get others off the other chat and point them here. thx - Tina Chase Gillmor
robert will talk about signaling - Tina Chase Gillmor
signal, signal, signal - Tina Chase Gillmor
isn't the big screen iphone a "me too" move? - Tom Guarriello
The big screen phone is not enough to boost interest in Apple. Beats Music + iWatch would be a winner. - Alex de Soto
Unless Johnny can make his own version of the Beats Headphone. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
see if the iwatch uses siri, i think it will be a dissapointment - Chris Hale
I have just had nothing but frustration with siri - Chris Hale
Chris: we'll see. I don't like Siri either for the most part - Robert Scoble
@Kteare, fair enough... - J.C. Bouvier
we need to get the chat in one spot and I'm getting confused as to which one is which. Please get everyone to center on the one that the show members are on - Tina Chase Gillmor
Wearables are over for now. That iWatch would have to do something amazing - Francine Hardaway
The iWatch may have its own Health and Fitness Apps Store - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I guess I mean to try and articulate if that is the primary input method for a iwatch is siri,which makes sense, I feel like people will buy it but will end up using it as a watch with a cool animated face and thats really it. - Chris Hale
Most Apple Products usually have their own Eco-systems - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Since it will make you want to throw it through a window everytime you talk to it - Chris Hale
Other tangentially interesting item re: Apple + music is the idea they're going to build 'high res' audio into iOS 8...clear they're thinking about how they improve their hold on music...which I think is very smart...if they bundle a better set of Beats build headphones w/i devices...I'm w/Keith, they answer the question: how do we keep people buying our gear... - J.C. Bouvier
they've had high res music for over a decade JC - Kevin Marks
on the other hand, I would totally love an iwatch that fixes all the issues I have with notifications on my apple devices. - Chris Hale
OS X and iOS have floating point audio as default - Kevin Marks
ok here - Tina Chase Gillmor
Siri is not usable. Google's voice to text is barely usable - Francine Hardaway
Future iPods will be built inside future versions of Beats Headphones. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
@Kevin - My audiophile friends want FLAC or equivalent...Personally, I agree, Apple Lossless is fine...but not to my audiophile friends. - J.C. Bouvier
Beats did it - Tom Guarriello
raw audio is better; apple has shipped their own lossless codec for over a decade too - Kevin Marks
Beats is a rap/urban brand - Tom Guarriello
@scoble, i dont necesarily agree with your last point. Beats has been a hot potato for years. First it was put in HP, then it went to HTC. I don't think it made much of a difference in those devices - Chris Hale
Dr. Dre...every suburban kid wants Beats - Tom Guarriello
they should have put google glass on a kardashian - Chris Hale
Totally. Josh Topolsky is wonderful, but not cool - Francine Hardaway
my suburban kids want Sennheisers - Kevin Marks
Sorry for the friday humor - Chris Hale
Not the ones on the NYC subway, Kevin - Tom Guarriello
google glass on real housewives so they can have PoV video - Kevin Marks
Correct, Robert. It's not something to wear on your face all the time - Francine Hardaway
Remember those first iPod ads... - Tom Guarriello
Agree about the bigger screen; lots of pent up demand among Apple users. Not sure it attracts Android & normals though. - Ian McGee
Can they ramp any further? 60M units? - J.C. Bouvier
Robert I think you wearing Google glass was a wise decision on googles part. I think you having a strong opinion on it will help it fill in the gaps eventually. You are a critic who don't praise crap products and I think pontificating about the possibilities of what glass could possibly do is probably one of the big things they probably got from your beta testing - Chris Hale
hi Mary wherever you are - Tina Chase Gillmor
iOS human interface needs to be carefully modified for iWatch. What have we heard about that? Or will there be an iWatchOS? Would Shaun Lind (UX Designer at Beats Music) be an asset to Ive's team? - Alex de Soto
now whether they do something about it remains to be seen - Chris Hale
Google is refusing to put out their mobile numbers even though the SEC just asked for them - mary hodder
They say: the definition of mobile is changing so much.. we can't give a number - mary hodder
@Kevin, great point re: medium/iOS dev. - J.C. Bouvier
it's always about size isn't it? - Tina Chase Gillmor
This was also associated with their saying they would run ADs on NEST.. and that 'in the home' advertising is a kind of 'mobile'.. associated with their other mobile stuff - mary hodder
Chris Hale: thanks, I see your point about Glass - Robert Scoble
Android's O/S is all over the place. When iOS 8 is released, almost 80% of iPhone Users will upgrade at once - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i just wish glass was a little cheaper. I am taking a gamble buying glass in the next couple of weeks and am praying they dont release a new version at Google IO - Chris Hale
Chris Hale: I would wait unless you need to build an app for Google IO - Robert Scoble
Chris Hale: of course I could sell you mine. :-) - Robert Scoble
I would totally buy it! - Chris Hale
Beyond retina, which doubled density (not resolution) there are only 2 real sizes, the iPhone 5 and the rest ?! - Simon Benvenutto
17% of android <4.0 - Kevin Marks
Steve never believes people are on Android - Francine Hardaway
@Robert let me know if you do end up wanting to part ways with your Glass. - Chris Hale
Anyone who buys their own phone is on Android. - Francine Hardaway
Also.. foreign phone users don't get subsidized phones via contract model used in the US - mary hodder
Is Robert holding a knife? :) - J.C. Bouvier
Censorship! - Simon Benvenutto
Justified. ;-) - Ian McGee
I think I heard Steve the other day saying he was going to get an android phone - maybe and additional one... not sure about that tho, Francine - Tina Chase Gillmor
If you get a Nexus 5 you will have a good Android experience. There's no crapware - Francine Hardaway
Robert, please put the knife down! - Tina Chase Gillmor
It's a pen, not a knife - Robert Scoble
I'm not surprised to hear from Alexia say the global TC audience is Android... - J.C. Bouvier
oh,.....never mind! - Tina Chase Gillmor
According to Chitika in March 2014: "Looking at the Web traffic from all North American users of both operating systems, iOS users generate 65% of the total, and Android users the remaining 35%. - Alex de Soto
anyone going to an english speaking conference overseas is also affluent - Kevin Marks
I was just bustin' Robert! I glanced up at my TV and saw what looked like cutlery...my bad... - J.C. Bouvier
And what versions of Android? - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Bob Dole always held a pen when he met people so folks wouldn't shake the hand that doesn't work well - Tina Chase Gillmor
the iPhone is def toooooo small now - Tina Chase Gillmor
They sell 45 million iPhones a quarter, right? That's a lot of elites. - Tom Guarriello
"you have to file down your fingers" - Steve Jobs - Kevin Marks
my experie4nce in "tech circles" is that there is a much higher percentage of Android users than in the general public, so that's quite different......many people who are NOT tech people have gotten an iphone early and stayed with it, and the open source software fans and believers have basically insisted upon being on Android...... - Dale Lature
my mother wanted to get one but she just couldn't go for the smallness of it all and i don't blame her - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oh no, Steve is announcing an Apple branded Surface !! - Simon Benvenutto
Any thoughts on the NYT Innovation doc leak from the gang? - J.C. Bouvier
Dale, that's my perception - Francine Hardaway
also Android AOSP doesn't show in those google figures - Kevin Marks
That 1% is Bill Gates - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Dale and Francine: I can tell you that isn't true in aggregate. - Robert Scoble
Alexia, did you say those were global or NA device traffic #'s for TC? - J.C. Bouvier
Surface will sink - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I struggle to describe anything with a fan inside it a tablet... - Simon Benvenutto
Robert, I dont have reason to doubt that...just surprised based on my experience - Dale Lature
Also Seattle - Kevin Marks
but I think people want to use tablet but they want even more productive - Tina Chase Gillmor
Closing the loop, from Alexia: Percentage of TC mobile readers by device: iOS 58%, Android 39%, Windows 1% - J.C. Bouvier
Secret is bullshit - I think - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yah Tina, I think for tech rumors, caveat emptor in Secret... - J.C. Bouvier
I will have to admit I experience many many more lockups on my Galaxy s3 Android 4.3 than I did when I had an iphone (2009-2012) - Dale Lature
I am already bored by scret - Francine Hardaway
Francine, Secret = not enough DAUs... - J.C. Bouvier
secret launched on android this week - Kevin Marks
Oh, that will help... - J.C. Bouvier
Ads on thermostats, Google? Really?? - Tom Guarriello
now it's full of iOS poeple bitching about android people - Kevin Marks
haha - Chris Hale
@Kevin, ha ha...some things never change. - J.C. Bouvier
And full of Thais - Francine Hardaway
very interesting metaphor about rolling over a company in bed - Chris Hale
Keith's got himself way off center - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yes, Tina, but his analysis is spot on - Tom Guarriello
I read Techcrunch on Flipboard via Twitter . I don't read Techcrunch on the web - Moe Glitz from iPhone
So long as I am on the left of center its OK - Keith Teare
did I hear Alexia inviting everyone to TC Hq to party? ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ha ha... - J.C. Bouvier

the party idea - Chris Hale
I think this Grant McCracken Wired piece sponsored by Netflix is an interesting example of new models of commercial/content http://www.wired.com/partner... - Tom Guarriello
haven't they already forced us to use messenger? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Swarm is interesting, but I still alert based on the previous meaning of swarm (large group of checkins). I'll get used to it. - Ian McGee
Yahoo wants all of their Services to remain in their main Apps. That's if you want to download it in the first place - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Swarm is nice - Kevin Marks
