The UTB Brad Podcast #1: Should I Mount It?

It’s the first episode of the quite boringly named UTB Brad Podcast.

Let’s be honest, I’m following in the footsteps of Roy with his one man Why BlackBerry Isn’t Dead Yet podcast. Roy has shown us that a short, one man podcast can be enjoyable. I’m going to follow him in to this new realm of podcasting.

There are plenty of things that I run across that might not be in depth enough to make it to a blog post. They might not be important enough, or involved enough, to make decent conversation on the UTB Blogcast. And they are probably nothing that my Talking Geek partner would have the least bit of interest in. Those topics, shall find a home here on The UTB Brad Podcast.

Give me a listen, see if it’s worth your time, and tell me what you think.

In this episode: An introduction to the podcast, and I talk about mounting your SD card in your Marshmallow BlackBerry Android smartphone



BlackBerry Elite Founder & Owner of UTB Blogs and UTB Geek. When I'm not talking or writing about BlackBerry, you'll find me using my BlackBerry.

  • I learned from this, never go with good smartphone to the beach.
    Don’t know how i will react to my BlackBerry falling to the ocean.

    That’s courage.

    Hi Brad, thanks for the heads up. I use my 128 as an internal hard drive on the Priv, but like you I didn’t pay much attention to what could happen. Nice to know that the SD card can be reformatted and be reused, but I guess as you have said/discovered as internal it can no longer be used as is in another phone as a regular SD card, and as such you stand to loose everything on it or in it. Makes me wonder though what if you have saved the content? Then maybe you still stand to loose nothing?

    Thanks for this pod cast and keep them coming…well keep them coming now and then. I found your cautionary tale to be a very good, real world discussion. And it was the right length. I often don’t have the time for hour long talks.

    Here’s one for you. I’m not sure how close you are to BlackBerry’s California offices. But if you are close, it would be great to hear you report on a visit there. Is it BlackBerry’s real headquarters? After all, the entire C-suite seems to be from Silicon Valley.. I bet that’s where they all work now. Would be interesting to find out.

    You use Google Services. Did you try contacting the NSA about getting some of your pictures back? locco_smiley_39

    Mounting an SD card is so previous generation OS. This isn’t an issue with BB10 and because it’s so easy I don’t mind taking it out and putting it in my desktop computer’s SD card slot to rearrange or add folders or transfer files. I can move about 2 GB of data from my SD card to my computer in a couple of minutes. locco_smiley_28
