Engadget Podcast 367 - 10.31.13

Your well-rested host, Brian Heater is back from his sabbatical and he's joined by Dana Wollman and Joseph Volpe to talk about Google's timely Halloween release of Android 4.4 KitKat, Sony's new SmartWatch 2 and the benefits of having a curved smartphone. No one dressed up for the holiday, but if they had a choice of eerie Engadget doppelgangers: Joseph would pick Winona Ryder over a skinny Vin Diesel and Dana's vocal stand-in would be Schwarzenegger, simply for the giggles. You won't need to stow those electronics as we touchdown for this week's Classic Podcast, and if you look down below as we approach the runway, you'll find all of the available streaming options. Please enjoy the show.

Hosts: Brian Heater, Dana Wollman, Joseph Volpe
