This week in Episode #132, Mission Accomplished, of the SMRpodcast we talk about the Apple vs. Samsung patent infringement trial verdict and what Apples win on most every count will mean for the future of the mobile industry.  Our opinions range from no effect at all to other manufacturers looking to other operating systems to avoid the law firm of Apple Inc.

We also talk about some of the awfully nice looking new Windows 8 Pro tablets coming down the pike, Samsung brings the Start menu back, and shared data plans may be cost effective after all.

We’ve got all this plus our picks in this weeks episode of the SMRpodcast…
