We touch upon software updates, app updates, service availability, component supply (for repair), and more. In the second half of the podcast, we round up various news items including the removal of App Wizard apps from Nokia Store, the EasyStreetView app, the MusicKloud app, ThemeBox, and the Nokia DC-19 accessory.
