Welcome Aboard

excellent job! I really enjoyed hearing about the Firefox OS and find it very intriguing. The fact that it runs in a web environment means that it's something I might actually be able to hack myself, since the main environment I know how to hack it is HTML. Also very nice audio quality. I will definitely look forward to hearing future episodes, and if you can say anything about eBook apps on the Firefox OS platform I would really be interested in hearing about that.

Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking of doing a follow-up to this at some point as I'm still using Firefox as my main phone OS and there's an update due at the end of this month - I'll wait for that to come out. I'll definitely make sure to look into ebook apps.
