Everyone needs a break. When the year is winding down, the news cycle is as cold as the snow outside, sickness is in the air and holiday travel looms in the distance like a brake light-studded Christmas tree, it can be tempting to just pull the ejection handle and say "sorry!" to the whole podcast affair, just once.
But this is the Pocketnow Weekly, and in 128 episodes we haven't done that yet. So while we're shortening this installment of your favorite mobile-technology podcast, we're still doing it – and we're also giving much of it over to you. If you're watching the show live, use the Q&A feature of Google Hangouts to pitch us all the questions and comments you've been trying to get through over the past 28 weeks we've been using it. With a shortened agenda we might just get to more than a handful before our hour on the air expires – but then again, Taylor Martin's here again, so you never know what's gonna happen between crushed segues as he tells us all about "life on the outside."
If that sounds like the perfect kickoff to a smartphone-studded holiday, Pocketnow has just the show you've been looking for. Join us for Pocketnow Weekly 128 below –either through the live video stream at 12:00pm Eastern on December 23 (click here for your local time), or the high-quality audio version available later on– and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air. See you then!

Music
It may just sound like a ringtone to you, but our transition music track ("Radiation") is a real song, from a real album, by a real artist: Ali Spagnola. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali's website (), visit her YouTube page (), and follow her on Twitter ()!

See you next week!
