Oh, we've got a bittersweet episode of the Engadget Mobile Podcast for you today -- full of ire for the present, optimism for the future, and a fond trip down memory lane for the past. Google and Skype unroll large rafts of new features, GSM and the iPhone get a little bit older, and RIM and HTC have a few good leaks for the world to absorb. It's just like any other magnificent week, in other words -- except for the fact that it's Vlad's last scheduled broadcast before he heads off to an extended-stay Bahamanian basketball camp.
