This week on the podcast: what Google’s purchase of Motorola Mobility means for other Android device manufacturers, how this changes the future of Android, whether “Android under the hood” devices should count as Android market share, international taxation on App Store earnings, USB hubs for iPads, and decaf coffee.
Dan’s out on paternity leave this week so the show was co-hosted by Ryan Irelan.
Open questions for the public that I couldn’t answer:
- Are any USB hubs capable of charging an iPad at or near full speed?
- Do U.S. residents need to pay any other foreign taxes for international App Store earnings besides the automatically withheld Japanese tax? (I know you can get yourself exempted from that one, but I sent in the forms in early 2010 and they still haven’t taken effect.)
