Thanks for 2005

Happy New YearWow, what a way to end 2005 here at MobileTechRoundup. Dave, James and I put 18 shows together in two months and the mobile community really responded! We were happy to report 26,000 show downloads in our first month and we’re ecstatic to say that the number of downloads grew by over 25% in our second month! On behalf of all of us involved with the MobileTechRoundup podcast, we want to shout out a huge “Thank You!” to our listeners, sponsor and hosting company. All of you make it worthwhile for us to do what we thoroughly enjoy doing and we hope 2006 brings all of you peace, happiness, health….and mobile devices!
