You can read some stuff about them on Six Colors (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/09/notebook-apples-newest-product-announcements/).

Moltz wrote a thing about round watch faces versus square watch faces (http://verynicewebsite.net/2015/09/the-watch-face-wars/).

Lex has some thoughts about Product Red (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Product_Red).

Apple's new upgrade program looks pretty good (http://www.macworld.com/article/2982376/apple-phone/iphone-6s-pricing-plan-offers-frequent-upgrades-and-applecare-for-a-premium.html). It's certainly good for Apple.

You probably read this, but Jim Dalrymple went off on Apple Music: http://www.loopinsight.com/2015/07/22/apple-music-is-a-nightmare-and-im-done-with-it/

But then he got his music back. All he had to do is go to Cupertino: http://www.loopinsight.com/2015/07/24/i-got-my-music-back-at-least-most-of-it/

Jason Snell likes Apple Music in his library: http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/07/in-praise-of-apple-music-in-my-itunes-library/

T-Mobile added Apple Music to its Freedom Plan: http://techcrunch.com/2015/07/28/t-mobile-adds-apple-music-to-its-data-free-music-freedom-plan/

John Legere really wants Lex to get a new phone... TODAY. (http://newsroom.t-mobile.com/issues-insights-blog/iphone-offer-music-freedom-amped.htm)

We recorded this before Apple's results were announced (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/07/appleq3results/) but as Apple was having some uptime issues with its online services (https://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/).

People may really like their Apple Watches, if you believe surveys (https://techpinions.com/the-state-of-apple-watch-satisfaction/41126).

Here's a synopsis of what happened over the weekend if you were off the grid: http://recode.net/2015/06/21/apple-says-it-will-pay-taylor-swift-for-free-streams-after-all/

Dan has some thoughts of his own here: http://sixcolors.com/link/2015/06/apples-reversal-on-paying-artists-during-the-apple-music-trial-period/

Swift does not consider her stance on photographs of her in concert the same thing (http://mashable.com/2015/06/23/taylor-swift-photographer-accusation/?utm_cid=mash-com-Tw-main-link).

We also talk about Apple Music. Dan has concerns: http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/06/why-im-worried-about-apple-music/.

Moltz doesn't like rumors of a camera in the next Apple Watch because it reminds him of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8nJKWJTsUg

Those new Android Wear watch faces sure look like... watch faces of some kind (http://officialandroid.blogspot.com/2015/06/android-wear-new-watch-faces-from.html).

We finish by discussing third-party Apple Watch bands because it's an Apple Watch show (http://thirdparty.band).

Phil Schiller finds Moltz funny (http://www.imore.com/gruber-and-schiller-our-full-transcript-talk-show-wwdc).

Marco Arment thinks Schiller's appearance on The Talk Show (http://daringfireball.net/thetalkshow/2015/06/09/ep-123) shows he's one of us (http://www.marco.org/2015/06/11/live-with-phil). Lex and Dan think it's mostly marketing.

Christopher Mims thinks Apple should drop the Mac (http://www.wsj.com/articles/why-apple-should-kill-off-the-mac-1434321848). This is nonesense (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/06/15/christopher-mims-jackass).

And, as predicted, he later claimed to have been misunderstood (http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2015/06/16/mims-what-comes-after-the-mac/).

Lex thinks the rumored iPad Pro (http://www.macrumors.com/roundup/ipad-pro/) will come with a keyboard and... more?

Dan wrote about what we didn't see at WWDC (http://www.macworld.com/article/2934781/what-apple-didnt-announce-at-wwdc.html).

And, by the way, Moltz is completely wrong about split screen not working on the MacBook Air. Fortunately.

We were not fans of the Apple Music introduction (http://leancrew.com/all-this/2015/06/facing-the-music/).

Apple removed the lube from the Cleveland Indians ransom note and then, ugh, gave a bunch of free stuff to rich sports stars (http://www.rollingstone.com/sports/news/apple-ceo-caves-to-cleveland-indians-ransom-demands-except-the-lube-20150608).

Apple finally had some female employees on the stage (http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jun/08/women-presenters-apple-wwdc) after Tim Cook admitted the company needed to do better on diversity (http://mashable.com/2015/06/08/tim-cook-apple-diversity-women-future/).

Apple's Music page has an amusing view of PCs compared to Macs (http://www.apple.com/music/).

We discuss the iPad multitasking in iOS 9 (http://www.macworld.com/article/2932327/apple-shows-ios-9s-major-upgrades-from-multitasking-to-picture-in-picture.html).

This week we talk about Google Photos (https://photos.google.com/) which, of course, prompts us to talk about the business model differences between Apple and Google (http://www.marco.org/2015/05/29/why-not-google).

Moltz mentions Edward Snowden and gets his name wrong but he's apparently not the only one who does that (https://twitter.com/charlesarthur/status/606483046745964544).

We talk about Photos features (http://www.macworld.com/article/2927919/googles-launches-new-photos-app-with-editing-tools-and-free-unlimited-storage.html) vis-a-vis Photos features (http://www.macworld.com/article/2916078/5-surprising-tips-for-apple-s-new-photos-app.html). No, these simple noun naming conventions aren't confusing.

Dan talks about his piece on Six Colors speculating on what will be announced at WWDC this year (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/06/what-to-expect-when-youre-expecting-wwdc-2015/).

We think the situation with Apple's court-appointed overseer sucks (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/05/28/shit-bromwich).

We also talk about HomeKit as devices for it are starting to show up (http://www.macstories.net/news/the-first-homekit-enabled-devices-begin-shipping/).

Dan discusses his travels with his Apple Watch (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/05/travels-with-the-apple-watch/).

Apple changed the way that the fitness tracker works and... it doesn't seem to work very well (http://www.mcelhearn.com/did-apple-bait-and-switch-apple-watch-customers-with-fitness-tracker-feature-promises/).

We bemoan the lack of good podcast creation apps but the money just isn't there (http://www.allenpike.com/2014/podcast-recording/).

Brent Simmons has resigned from Q Branch, if you follow the movements of celebrity developers (http://inessential.com/2015/06/02/resigning_from_q_branch). Actually, he's done that whether you do or not.

Our thanks this week go to Harry's (harrys.com). Harry's sells premium shaving products for much less than those crappy blades that you have to get someone to unlock from a cabinet. Use the coupon code "REBOUND" to get $5 off! Don't wait, get the shave you deserve.

36:41 | 50.4 MB
No Dan Moren this week as he was on an "aeroplane".

So, Lex and Moltz talk about their experiences with their Sonos... uh, Sonoses? (http://www.sonos.com/) Right now you can get two Sonos Play speaker units for $349 (they are not an advertiser).

Lex has several swear words for Chris Breen (https://twitter.com/bodyofbreen) who suggested he get the Sonos, even though he and Moltz actually like them.

Lex finds the Sonos works well if you have a Rhapsody account (http://www.rhapsody.com). Again, not an advertiser. To save some time, there are no advertisers on this week's episode. Which is weird because it sounds like everything is an advertiser.

Lex wonders if he wants an Amazon Echo (http://www.amazon.com/oc/echo/ref_=ods_dp_ae) but Moltz says no, Lex does not want an Amazon Echo no matter what Dan says (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/05/is-there-an-echo-in-here/) — he's not even on this episode.

There's a bug in Messages that will crash your iPhone via text messages but there's already a fix in the works so we spend about 3.5 seconds on it (http://techcrunch.com/2015/05/27/apple-fixing-bug-that-crashes-iphones-by-text-message/).

Marco Arment doesn't like the new MacBook, which isn't that surprising (http://www.marco.org/2015/05/19/mistake-one).

Moltz likes Marvel Unlimited (http://marvel.com/comics/unlimited).

Lex is freaked out by the floating MacBooks at the Apple Store page (http://store.apple.com/us/buy-mac/macbook).

For people who buy a crapton of Apple stuff, an Apple Barclay's card might be for you (http://store.apple.com/us/browse/finance/instant_credit).

Did you know Eastern Airlines is back? (http://www.local10.com/news/eastern-airlines-makes-its-return-after-23-years/30323482) Very weird.

This all makes Lex thing of a Billy Joel song (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Downeaster_Alexa).

Apple is rumored to be readying an update for the Apple Watch and Apple TV featuring TV Kit (http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/18/apple-readies-first-significant-apple-watch-updates-tvkit-sdk-for-apple-tv/).

We complain about arranging Apple Watch apps which is the firstest of world problems (http://www.imore.com/how-rearrange-apps-your-apple-watch).

A 15-inch MacBook Pro with Force Touch may not be long off, as well as a 27-inch iMac update (http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/18/new-15-inch-macbook-pro-imac-27/).

The first trailer for "Steve Jobs" with Michael Fassbender is out so we can argue about another biopic, yay (http://variety.com/2015/film/news/steve-jobs-trailer-michael-fassbender-aaron-sorkin-1201499261/).

Clearly, it's no "iSteve" (http://www.macworld.com/article/2035456/review-funny-or-dies-isteve-will-tickle-apple-fans.html). But it'll be better than "jOBS" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq5q9aoZi4s).

Apple has bought GPS and navigation firm, Coherent (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/17/apple-coherent-navigation-acquisition/).

We foget how turn-by-turn works on the Watch, but it's 12 quick taps for right, three pairs of two for left (http://www.macworld.com/article/2915572/apple-watch-how-to-use-maps.html).

Our thanks this week go to Animoto (http://animoto.com/therebound), the easiest way to create, edit and share your videos. True story: Moltz used Animoto to make a video of his wife and son doing karate and was amazed at how easy it was. He uploaded his video and pictures (Animoto can also pull them from your Facebook, Instagram and Flickr accounts if you want) to Animoto, picked a theme... *and that was it*. Animoto did the rest and it turned out really well. You can try Animoto for free for 14 days and remember to use the code "REBOUND" to get 15% off a Pro account when you sign up at http://animoto.com/therebound.

Our thanks also to Aspiration (http://aspiration.com/rebound), a different kind of financial firm. Their idea is pretty simple – take everything you don’t like about investing, and do the opposite. Traditional Wall Street firms work for mostly millionaires. At Aspiration, their investments investment strategies are built for the middle class. Signing up takes as little as $500 and five minutes of your time. You choose the fee you pay them – even if that is zero. They don’t make a cent other than what you decide they deserve. And Aspiration is the most charitable financial firm in America. Check them out and sign up at Aspiration.com/rebound.

Lex is...actually we don't know where Lex is. But we have the lovely and talented Jason Snell on this week's episode taking up the slack and then some.

You can use emoji to order a pizza on Twitter. But it's Domino's. (http://money.cnn.com/2015/05/13/news/companies/dominos-twitter/index.html)

We talk about some of the security concerns about the Apple Watch (http://www.idownloadblog.com/2015/05/13/the-apple-watch-thieves-reset-no-activation-lock-security/), mostly because Dan's afraid his will get stolen while he's abroad.

We wonder how long these Taptic Engines will last (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/04/29/taptic-engine-wsj).

Your Apple Watch is backing up and you probably don't even know it (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204518).

Jason has a new 4K TV, possibly this one: http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-M50-C1-50-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B00T63YUJO/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1431633408&sr=8-4&keywords=visio+4k+tv

Both Dan and Jason have a Harmony remote (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/harmony-remotes).

Dan wrote a piece on iOS 9 rumors: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/ios-9-rumors,news-20919.html

Federico Viticci, meanwhile, has his iOS 9 wish list: http://www.macstories.net/stories/ios-9-wishes/

48:33 | 22.3 MB
Some people think the app screen on the Watch is unneeded (https://twitter.com/jsnell/status/595021309752549376). They are wrong.

Here's a closer look at the insides of the Apple Watch: https://www.abiresearch.com/press/apple-watch-insides-pcb-details-revealed-for-the-f/

The next Apple TV may feature a new haptic remote (http://www.imore.com/rumored-apple-tv-refresh-will-reportedly-include-redesigned-remote-touch-pad).

Apple reportedly is trying to make free Spotify go away (http://fortune.com/2015/05/04/apple-beats-spotify/).

Moltz thinks he might be interested in an "iPad Pro" as a TV (http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/01/ipad-pro-case-video/).

Apple has opened up its third-party band program (https://developer.apple.com/watch/bands/). Some of these don't look bad: http://www.monoweardesign.com/shop

Our thanks this week go to Napkin (http://nap.kn), a tool for image mark-up and annotation for OS X. Napkin is efficient and easy to use, while still producing great looking output. Napkin is also made by some fine and handsome people. It's the best tool you could imagine for marking up your Apple Watch screen shots. Get it at http://nap.kn.

This week's episode takes place as Moltz is waiting for delivery of his Apple Watch. While he waits, he might benefit from learning some tips about the Apple Watch (http://www.imore.com/28-apple-watch-tips-and-tricks-you-should-know).

We predict that sleeve cut-outs for smartwatches will be a future trend, like double ties (http://news.greatblogabout.org/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/windowslivewriterbacktothefuturecontinue.part2-101a8513.jpg).

Dan and Lex don't notice serious battery drain on their iPhones when paired with the Watch. (http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/27/apple-watch-battery-issues-solutions/) Since getting his after this episode, Moltz hasn't either.

The Watch is definitely better than its cheap Android knock-off (https://instagram.com/p/2EUvl4zFwY/).

No one will be seated during the thrilling section where Dan and Lex tell us which Watch faces they're using (http://www.apple.com/watch/timekeeping/).

If you're interested in using traditional watch bands with the Watch, you might be interested in Click (https://www.get-click.com), an adapter for that purpose.

Apple has new ads, one with an interesting moment (http://www.apple.com/watch/films/).

Switching gears, Microsoft has announced a new set of tools for Cocoa and Android developers (http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/29/8511439/microsoft-windows-10-android-ios-apps-bridges) plus an update to hololens (http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/30/8525417/microsoft-hololens-headset-up-close).

Dan is back from his nerdfest (http://www.starwarscelebration.com) where a new Star Wars trailer was released if you haven't heard (http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/lucasfilm/starwarstheforceawakens/).

Lex is the perfect person to talk to about Star Wars (https://twitter.com/lexfri/status/588835146545102848).

Lex has returned his 13-inch MacBook Pro for a 15-inch MacBook Pro which, it turns out, they still make (http://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/).

Jon Armstrong recommends using only the dedicated graphics card, which Marco Arment says you shouldn't (http://www.marco.org/2015/04/17/battery-outliers).

Many Apple Watch orders have moved to "preparing for shipment" (http://www.imore.com/apple-watch-orders-move-preparing-shipment-customer-cards-start-being-charged).

iMore has an article about how the Sport looks with some of the other bands (http://www.imore.com/apple-watch-sport-and-stainless-bands-heres-what-they-look).

There is a raging debate about whether or not Apple will or should allow third-party Watch faces (http://daringfireball.net/2015/04/custom_watch_faces).

Moltz bought one pair of Bluetooth headphones (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RMRL8WS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) but is trying a different pair (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CBNG10C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). He expects not to like either.

Then we talk about our current usage of Photos (http://www.macworld.com/article/2910321/automator-actions-geotagging-and-more-advanced-tricks-for-photos-for-os-x.html) and Apple's crazy cloud storage pricing (http://9to5mac.com/2014/09/09/apple-finalizes-icloud-storage-pricing-200-gb-for-4month-1-tb-for-20month/).

Lex wrote the book on iTunes Match (http://www.amazon.com/Teach-Yourself-iTunes-Minutes-ebook/dp/B007MQLOAA/ref=nosim/thelexfiles05-20) and having sex in a Snuggie (http://thesnuggiesutra.com).
30. Force Touch Is Perfect For Reading Siracusa Articles
48:38 | 66.8 MB
Dan is away so Lex and Moltz draft fellow Turning This Car Around (http://turningthiscararound.com) co-host Jon Armstrong to guest co-host.

And guess what we start off with. Guess. Go on. Guess. Hey, you were right! Apple Watch pre-ordering. They went pretty fast (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/04/10/apple-watch-sold-out-launch-day/).

Did people order a million of them? Probably. And more. But this survey is not to be taken seriously (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/04/13/slice-intelligence-apple-watch-orders).

Jon actually went to the store to check the Watch out (http://www.imore.com/apple-watch-retail-experience).

Lex has his new haptic MacBook and is loving the feedback (https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Early+2015+Teardown/38300).

New emoji are here and Lex is furious (http://www.macworld.com/article/2907542/pump-up-your-messages-with-hundreds-of-new-emoji-in-ios-83-out-now.html).

iOS 8.4 has been released to developers and it includes a new Music app that Jon is disappointed with (http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/13/hands-on-ios-music-app/). In particular, he wants to hate on some of the images here: http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/13/apple-launches-ios-8-4-beta-with-revamped-music-service/.

None of us is going to WWDC, which was announced this week (https://developer.apple.com/wwdc/).
29: Death is What I'm Running From
44:53 | 27.7 MB
First, of course, we talked about the Apple Watch, because: Duh. Apple unveiled ten tour videos, but only released three. (http://www.apple.com/watch/guided-tours/) We smell a conspiracy. The buttons and the presses and the whatnot — it's a lot to take in.

Dan's still not ready to Periscope (http://periscope.tv), but John's tried it and Lex can't stop. But Dan promises that when he DOES finally Periscope, it will be epic. No pressure. We also ruminate on what's next for Meerkat. Remember Meerkat?

Mrs. Moltz is not on Facebook. (Yet.)

Dan still doesn't trust iCloud. Its invisible email filtering is barely legal at best.

And now, HBO Now is available now (http://order.hbonow.com). Lex tried Sling TV (http://sling.com); it was not terrible. But we're worried that too many a la carte digital channels basically recreates today's crappy cable climate.

We're not sweating the Apple construction / felons controversy. Either because we're jerks, or because we doubt Apple's the company instituting the hiring policy for the new campus. (http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/Apple-takes-heat-for-barring-former-felons-from-6182436.php)

Apple doesn't want people to stand in line at the Apple Store anymore. (http://www.businessinsider.com/angela-ahrendts-says-a-significant-change-in-mindset-to-launching-apple-watch-online-2015-4) John and Dan gave it up in the iPhone 4 era. Lex never started.

Our thanks to Napkin from Aged & Distilled, and to A24, presenting Ex Machina, for sponsoring The Rebound.

Ex Machina opens this week in LA and New York, and will be in many more theaters soon. It's a sci-fi thriller directed by the writer of Sunshine and 28 Days later. The Telegraph calls it BEWITCHINGLY SMART SCIENCE FICTION and The Daily Mirror declares it's AN INSTANT CLASSIC. Starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander.

Napkin 1.5 is available now, and it's an awesome tool for image mark-up and annotation on OS X. It's easy to use, and it's great at lots of things; new features include pixelation and blur for redacting sensitive stuff, and a slick new interface perfectly at home on Yosemite. And with support for multiple images on one canvas, call-outs, and the delightfully named File Pip for easy drag-drop export — you're going to love it. It's in the Mac App Store or directly available at (http://nap.kn). Check out their video, too: http://media.aged-and-distilled.com.s3.amazonaws.com/napkin_1_5/video/Napkin_Product.mp4
28: Anyone Can Draw Hitler
40:34 | 24.1 MB
Programming note: Moltz's computer crashed and lost his recording and we had to use the Skype track so if the audio isn't up to our normal high standards we apologize.

This week we talk about Periscope and Lex even records one live which is not live by the time you're reading this (http://www.buzzfeed.com/mathonan/meet-periscope-twitters-new-live-video-app).

We even figure out how to monetize it with Square Cash (http://www.theverge.com/2015/3/23/8277007/square-cash-business-cashtag).

As we were talking, Amazon announced a whole new way for you to buy crap from them (http://techcrunch.com/2015/03/31/amazons-new-dash-button-hardware-offers-instant-orders-for-staple-products/). We don't like it.

The iPhone 6c may be coming (http://9to5mac.com/2015/03/30/iphone-6c-rear-shell/), a plastic iPhone with 6-level internals.

The New York Times is rolling out one-sentence stories for the Apple Watch (http://www.nytco.com/the-times-rolls-out-one-sentence-stories-on-apple-watch/) and it doesn't look that great.

Here's a handy how-to for drawing Hitler that you'll want to keep around for when you get your Apple Watch and want to send someone a sketch: https://instagram.com/p/H2MCQkIpOi/.

If you don't need your extra Apple Watch band (each comes with two), you can use BandSwapper (http://bandswapper.com).

Our thanks this week go to Harry's (harrys.com). Harry's sells premium shaving products for much less than those crappy blades that you have to get someone to unlock from a cabinet. The starter set is just $15 and with promo code "REBOUND", you can get it for $10! Don't wait, get the shave you deserve.

Our thanks also to WealthFront, the automated investment service that makes it easy to invest your money the right way. It automatically rebalances your portfolio and re-invests your dividends, all commission-free. Visit https://www.wealthfront.com/rebound to get your first $10,000 for free.
27: I'm Just an App!
44:51 | 27.5 MB
We could be looking at a new Apple TV this fall (http://www.buzzfeed.com/johnpaczkowski/new-apple-tv-set-top-will-debut-this-summer-with-app-store-s#.fsPjk8dY4).

If you're really desperate to see what the Apple Watch might look like on your wrist, there's now an app for that (http://www.popsci.com/try-virtual-apple-watch-app).

But don't get an Apple Watch because it'll definitely give you wrist cancer (http://www.theverge.com/2015/3/18/8252087/cell-phones-cancer-risk-tumor-bilton-new-york-times).

Moltz likes the game TouchTone (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchtone/id962133182?mt=8), a puzzler full of intrigue.

TIME TO PANIC AS APPLE WATCH YIELDS MAY BE LOW (http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20150325PD209.html), oh, it's DigiTimes, forget it.

Then we talk about the war going on over the Steve Jobs legacy (https://medium.com/backchannel/the-war-over-who-steve-jobs-was-92bda2cd1e1e). This prompts Dan and Lex to fondly remember iSteve (http://www.macworld.com/article/2035456/review-funny-or-dies-isteve-will-tickle-apple-fans.html).

If you want to pay an extra dollar for the new Steve Jobs book, get it on iBooks (https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/becoming-steve-jobs/id936502684?mt=11).

We talk about Meerkat, but now you can get Periscope (http://www.buzzfeed.com/mathonan/meet-periscope-twitters-new-live-video-app#.saxxEk1lN).

26: Jiggles Like Butter
37:13 | 22.8 MB
It's an all non-Apple Watch episode!

Apple might be working on a television service (http://9to5mac.com/2015/03/16/wsj-apple-announcing-30-40month-web-tv-service-in-june-shipping-in-september-with-25-channels/), if you believe the Wall Street Journal.

Apple and NBC aren't talking, except for the fact that NBC is apparently making an Apple TV app (http://9to5mac.com/2015/03/17/nbc-plans-cable-dependent-apple-tv-app-for-second-half-of-2015/). Figure that out.

We also talk about USB-C which is our new bicycle (http://www.macworld.com/article/2894423/thunderbolted-usb-c-is-our-new-connection-overlord-get-used-to-it.html). No, really, we'll miss MagSafe (http://www.macworld.com/article/2895694/will-your-new-macbook-crash-to-the-ground-without-magsafe-yes.html).

Lex and Moltz are OK with the Force Touch trackpad (https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Early+2015+Teardown/38300) except inasmuch as it satisfies Dan's tap-to-click sensibilities.

In regards to our non-bet about who said apps jiggling looked "nervous", at Macworld Expo in January 2008, Steve Jobs said while showing how to tap and hold to move apps: “They all get a little bit restless.” Dan and Lex think that's not the same. Moltz hates them both.

For the record, there is no (known) vulnerability in Apple Pay (http://www.imore.com/banks-still-trying-failing-deflect-fraud-apple-pay) despite what you might have read.

Dan is interested in Samsung's recently acquired payment system for all his Samsung device payment needs (http://techcrunch.com/2015/02/18/samsung-acquires-looppay-maker-of-an-apple-pay-competitor/).

If you missed it, Apple announced a mess o' stuff on Monday, including new 12-inch MacBooks (http://www.apple.com/macbook/) and a lot more Watch information (http://www.apple.com/watch/) on pricing, bands and more.

24: Time as a Service
41:07 | 18.9 MB
Lex isn't a fan of Apple's recent ads (http://www.apple.com/ipad/changing-film/) and we speculate on what ads for the Watch will be like.

Dan remembers some iPhone ads of yore (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/12/opinion/l12brooks.html?ref=opinion&_r=0).

While you listen to this episode, you can pick your Watch combination (http://mixyourwatch.com/). We're not sure it'll be available, though.

Is the Apple Watch going to be ugradeable? (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/02/24/caldwell-edition) Probably not.

There's an event coming up so, yeah, we talk about the Apple Watch (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/02/spring-forward-apple-event-coming-march-9/).

We also speculate on what else might get announced next week (http://www.imore.com/new-macbook-air-just-around-corner).

Then we talk about app pricing and the backlash against pricing things too low (http://vesperapp.co/blog/native-support-for-ipad-and-landscape/).

Speaking of price backlash, some think maybe the Watch Edition will not be $10,000 (http://www.marco.org/2015/03/04/boring-apple-watch-edition-pricing).

23: The Head Wound Episode
27:40 | 16.8 MB
Screw the Apple Watch, Dan says he's buying a Pebble Time (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/597507018/pebble-time-awesome-smartwatch-no-compromises?ref=nav_search), which funded within minutes and is coming up on 20 times their goal with 30 days to go.

Then we get right back to Apple Car, Apple Car, Apple Car (http://www.mondaynote.com/2015/02/22/apple-car-three-more-thoughts/).

Then we talk about Alto's Adventure (http://sixcolors.com/link/2015/02/altos-adventure-is-anything-but-a-grind/) and we play it while we talk because we're professional podcasters.

Lex uses Personal Capital (https://www.personalcapital.com). Look at this guy.

Moltz and Dan use TurboTax but they're not happy about it (http://www.propublica.org/article/how-the-maker-of-turbotax-fought-free-simple-tax-filing).
22: Is There a Mrs. Brookstone?
35:0 | 21 MB
Oh, you know we're talking about the Apple Car because where there's smoke (http://9to5mac.com/2015/02/19/apple-electric-car-team/) there's something that's smoking. Or someone who's smoking.

Dan is decidedly anti-Apple Car while Lex is pro-Apple Car and Moltz just wants to take a nap. The GM CEO is also anti-Apple Car (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/02/18/former-gm-ceo-on-apple-car/).

Then we talk about Apple Watch pricing (http://daringfireball.net/2015/02/apple_watch_pricing) because that's what this podcast is about.

Chris Breen has left Macworld (http://chrisbreen.com/words/2015/2/17/time-to-do-something-else) to go work for Apple. But it doesn't mean Apple's building some kind of ninja PR team.

Moltz recounts the latest fun he's having with his son's Lenovo (http://verynicewebsite.net/2015/02/superfish/).

Maybe the NSA will fix it when they rewrite the hard drive's firmware (http://www.popsci.com/most-sophisticated-malware-ever-can-infect-hard-drive-firmware).

Then we discuss the very long and very good Jony Ive profile in The New Yorker (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/02/23/shape-things-come?currentPage=all).

If Apple does sell a car, how will they sell them in places like New Jersey (http://blogs.wsj.com/corporate-intelligence/2014/03/11/tesla-vs-new-jersey-the-car-dealers-strike-back/)?

The Verge wants you to stop listening to podcasts at faster speeds (http://www.theverge.com/2015/2/17/8043077/stop-listening-to-podcasts-fast-speed) but Marco Arment says listen at whatever speed you want (http://www.marco.org/2015/02/17/listen-to-podcasts-at-whatever-speed-you-want).
21: Apple Watch Watch
45:30 | 27.7 MB
This week we take a look at the looks at Photos (http://www.theverge.com/2015/2/5/7982517/apple-photos-mac-iphoto-replacement-explainer-faq).

Lex is getting a new dog (https://twitter.com/lexfri/status/564570865787211776). This is a tech podcast.

Despite the initial excitement about extensions (http://www.macworld.com/article/2684894/ios-8-extensions-how-they-work-and-why-they-matter-to-you.html), we're not using quite as many of them as we thought.

Then we get back to our recurring topic: Apple Watch fan fiction. Dan notices a disturbing thing about the crown, about which he has now written something (http://sixcolors.com/2015/02/whats-up-with-apple-watch-editions-digital-crown/).
20: Maximum Darkness
36:09 | 21.9 MB
Welcome to the future! Where you can scan your own books page by page thanks to Amazon (http://www.engadget.com/2015/02/03/rip-and-mix-is-fine-but-dont-burn-books/).

The future sadly will not include Radio Shack, which may be selling its stores to Sprint (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-02/radioshack-is-said-to-discuss-liquidation-as-part-of-sprint-deal) or Amazon (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-03/amazon-said-to-mull-buying-radioshack-stores-in-retail-expansion) or both.

Dan doesn't mind because You-do-it Electronics is still around (http://youdoitelectronics.com).

And, truly alas, TUAW will not be around in the future (http://www.tuaw.com/2015/02/03/so-long-and-thanks-for-all-the-fish/) and neither will Joystiq (http://www.joystiq.com/2015/02/03/there-is-no-end/).

No sign, however that Daring Fireball is about to go under (http://daringfireball.net).

Individually run sites have the benefit of being able to make their own advertising decisions (http://sixcolors.com/post/2014/12/no-other-gatekeeper-but-me/).

It's not hard to imagine that AOL might mess up a decision or two as it's still big in the dialup Internet business (http://consumerist.com/2013/08/08/believe-it-or-not-2-58-million-people-still-pay-for-aol-service/).

If you miss TUAW, you can find most of them soon at Apple World Today (http://appleworld.today).

Apple itself, meanwhile, is rumored to be building a data center in that no-longer-used sapphire manufacturing facility (http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2015/02/02/apple-to-build-data-command-center-in-arizona/).

Lex is happy there's a way to make your iOS device's screen even darker (https://medium.com/@searls/how-to-make-your-iphone-dimmer-than-dim-d20fd3bbbb66). He's weird that way.
19: Headwinds and Hedges
43:50 | 26.8 MB
Lex will be back next week but it's just Dan and John this week.

Apple had a record quarter again (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/01/apple-announces-q1-2015-results-today/), despite the dreaded currency headwinds. Brr.

Gene Munster got no answers on the Apple TV yet again. Dan likes his Fire TV (http://www.amazon.com/Amazon-W87CUN-Fire-TV-Stick/dp/B00GDQ0RMG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422649498&sr=8-1&keywords=fire+tv) and Plex (https://plex.tv). The CEO of HBO has famously said he doesn't care if people share HBO Go logins (http://www.buzzfeed.com/mattlynley/hbos-ceo-doesnt-care-that-you-are-sharing-your-hbo-password#.nwy6PgzY9).

Contrary to what John says in this episode, Netflix is not losing Doctor Who (http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/19/entertainment/netflix-bbc-doctor-who-feat/index.html). It is losing some other shows.

Apple Pay is coming to 200,000 more outlets (http://www.macworld.com/article/2834669/the-ultimate-guide-on-how-and-where-to-use-apple-pay.html).

John talks about his career using plastic disks (http://davewooldridge.com/post/8666912823/for-all-you-star-trek-fans-toy-collectors-i) as counterfeit nickels.

It's notable that Apple had the most profitable quarter of any company ever (http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/27/apple-just-had-the-biggest-quarterly-earnings-of-any-company-ever/). And that Apple sold more smartphones than Samsung (http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/28/smartphone-report-q4-2014/). For some reason.
18: Arbitrary Cheap Shots
45:52 | 21.1 MB
Microsoft announced freaking holograms this week (actual holograms not included) so we spend most of our time on that (http://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-hololens/).

There's a host of "ZOMG!" commentary on the web about it but there's at least some reason to have a wait-and-see attitude (http://www.polygon.com/2015/1/21/7868351/hololens-kinect-microsoft-windows-10).

Not-really-holograms are so exciting that barely leaves us any time to discuss how badly (http://pando.com/2015/01/18/dan-lyons-career-an-obituary/) Dan Lyons' career is going down the tubes (http://pando.com/2015/01/20/the-death-of-dan-lyons-career-your-daily-update/).
17: Rub to Pay
46:26 | 28.7 MB
We still eagerly await the Apple Watch, the companion app for which was recently revealed (http://9to5mac.com/2015/01/13/apple-watch-iphone-companion-app-revealed-with-new-watch-features-monograms/).

But if you went to CES you could have gotten a fake Apple Watch for $30 (http://mashable.com/2015/01/08/fake-apple-watch-ces/).

That reminds us of a great story from Macworld | iWorld 2013 (http://www.macworld.com/article/2027044/starfish-smartwatch-saga-illustrates-entrepreneurial-stumbling-blocks.html).

Dan is getting an Amazon Echo (http://www.amazon.com/oc/echo/). For science.

But he really wants to talk about his surfeit of remotes and how he hopes the Neeo will fix all his problems including that rash (http://www.neeo.com).

The entire rest of the episode is a T-Mobile ad read conducted by Lex (http://www.t-mobile.com).
16: The Complaining Side
40:03 | 24.8 MB
Much of the episode is spent talking about a post by Marco Arment (http://www.marco.org/2015/01/04/apple-lost-functional-high-ground).

Daniel Jalkut has collected a list of problems over the last 10 years (http://bitsplitting.org/2015/01/05/the-functional-high-ground/), so it's not like Apple has always had bugs. Since posting, Marco has said he regrets saying what he said because of the subsequent media buzz (http://www.marco.org/2015/01/05/popular-for-a-day).

Dr. Drang has another take (http://www.leancrew.com/all-this/2015/01/apple-leverage/).

Moltz and Dan have a wait-and-see approach to Photos (http://www.imore.com/photos-os-x-yosemite-explained). Lex is going to be the experiment group.

The only interesting thing we've heard from CES is that Mophie has Juice Packs for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (http://www.mophie.com/shop/battery-cases). Unless you want a DJ controller that looks like the Millenium Falcon (http://www.engadget.com/2015/01/06/casio-new-dj-controllers-trackformer/).

Lex and Moltz talk about their experience with the Kano (http://www.kano.me).

Lex is considering getting custom-made ear molds for headphones (http://earsound.com). Dan wants to look like Lobot (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lobot). But then he's going to the Anaheim Star Wars Celebration (http://www.starwarscelebration.com).
15: Clickless Trackpad
Moltz has a red light on his Drobo (drobo.com). But it's gonna be OK. Then we discuss the rumors about a 12-inch MacBook Air...
42:45 | 19.7 MB

Moltz has a red light on his Drobo. But it's gonna be OK. He also learns the difference between the spelling of Paul Thurrott's last name and that of Henry David Thoreau.

Then we discuss the rumors about a 12-inch MacBook Air. Rumors often don't pan out, like the one about them removing the headphone jack on iPhones.

Then the podcast ends forever when Dan says he keeps trackpad tapping on on his MacBook Air. So long, been nice podcasting for you.

OK, back to headphones, Moltz has these Bose jobbies which, eh, are OK. Dan has Sennheiser PX 100s. Lex has Sony MDRV6s. If you're having trouble hearing from your MacBook's speakers, you can use Boom and, well, maybe blow your speakers out.

Seems like you could get some completely acceptable podcasting equipment for certainly no more than $200. A Yeti isn't the best microphone in the world but it's fine. Hindenberg Journalist is about $100. For $100 more you can get Logic Pro.

For video, if iMovie drives you berserk, you could actually edit video in Screenflow.

Finally, Lex tells the story of the PowerBook 540c that got away. By being stolen.

14: Eric Schmidt is a Dog
Was iTunes 12 a crime? Lex and John introduce Dan to Crossy Road and the result is...predictable.
41:29 | 25.5 MB

Bad news: The lawsuit against Apple about iPod DRM has failed. This causes us to complain about iTunes 12.

Then, somehow, we end up talking about our favorite games of 2014. You've got your Super Stickman Golf 2, your Kingdom Rush, your Room and Room 2 and then you've got your Crossy Road. Lex takes exception to some of iMore's Crossy Road tips. We hear good things about FTL but none of us really play it.

Space Team, Artemis and Atro Duel are all great multiplayer iOS games.

If you're looking for presents, please consider the book Dan co-wrote with Jeff Carlson, The Connected Apple Home. Or, Lex likes Jackery. Cough.

Eric Schmidt mistakenly believes that private browsing in Chrome will keep your information safe from government snooping. He is not correct.

13: Why Guy
John has some choice words for Zuck, Lex details what would make him switch to an Apple TV, and the only upside to Apple's arbitrary app review process is that Dan has found his calling in life.
37:10 | 23.1 MB

We start this week by taking a look at Mark Zuckerberg's ridiculous comments about Apple and how much we don't like Facebook.

Dan and Lex are fans of Silicon Valley the TV show for its accurate depiction of Silicon Valley the place and mindset. Moltz has not seen it.

Panic has had to update Transmit for iOS due to another groan-inducing App Store policy clusterfuck. Here's another one. We grouse into the wind about this situation.

Dan wrote a piece about the Apple TV so we talk about set-top boxes. Again. It's a favorite hobby horse of ours.

Dan gets some things off his chest about Hulu+.

Black Mirror is not a show you should watch if you've had a bad year.

12: Dreidel Crammers
Lex buys a new TV, John buys a new car, and Dan doesn't buy whatever they're selling.
41:11 | 25.2 MB

We talk about Apple's Red promotion and some of the reaction to that.

On Black Friday, Lex bought a new TV and Moltz bought... a PC? That can't be right, can it?

Lex uses his new TV to play the Walking Dead on the Xbox.

If we haven't talked about cars incessantly enough, DON'T WORRY. Yes, Moltz is getting an Acura ILX and Lex got a Nissan Leaf.

Car technology can be a problem, so can home technology like the Nest.

How about smartrings?! Turns out they have problems, too. Boston area public transportation has a ring that holds your fare card. You don't want to wear that one, either.

Dan spends all his time playing Destiny. And podcasting.

11: All My Ports are Closed
On this happiest of Thanksgiving holidays, Lex talks about his new electric car, Dan talks about his new Fire TV Stick, and John talks about people with stupid advice for Apple.
40:31 | 25 MB

Lex got an electric car. It's not a Tesla. It's a Nissan Leaf. So we talk cars. As people on tech podcasts do.

Car technology sucks. Let's just say that.

Before you listen to the next part, take Pew Research's Web IQ Quiz so you can compare your score to ours.

Two fine pieces of bad advice for Apple this week:

It's Time For Apple to Open Up"

"Can iPad conquer the enterprise? Only if Apple has the guts to license iOS"

Then Dan discusses a piece he wrote for Popular Science on the Regin spyware.

Then there's a discussion of technology and the holidays. Lex wonders about buying from iTunes in another country. Dan bought an Amazon Fire Stick. Which he'll probably leave in a hotel.

10: I Did It All for the Nokia
Nokia's new Android tablet is a topic of hot discussion with John, Lex, and Dan this week, as are Uber's shenangians and the latest iPhone knockoff.
36:41 | 22.2 MB

This episode is not actually brought to you buy The Visual Guide to Minecraft. That's a book the Moltz has co-written and it's not really a sponsor because of ethics in game podcasting.

Also not sponsoring this issue is the brand-new Nokia N1. Certainly not after what we said about it, anyway. See if you can identify the substance in the bowl. We wonder if this kind of thing is covered in Apple and Nokia's cross-licensing deal.

Then we talk about the Uber kerfuffle and whether or not we'll be deleting the app. We're definitely down on it, even though Apple's not perfect, either.

Alas, you missed your chance to get a sweet iPhone 6 knockoff.

You may soon be able to get an iPhone battery case with a Lightning port. Finally.

Lex has a case from Unu which he has no complaints about.

Dan sold some devices to Gazelle and reports that they'll bump up what they give you if they think your device is in better shape than what you reported. Of course, they'd probably do the opposite, too.

9: Hey Alexa
Why does Messages have so many problems, and who wants to buy an Amazon Echo anyway? Dan, Lex, and John discuss these and more pressing issues.
38:26 | 23.5 MB

Lex is back! For those of you who actually keep track of who's on this podcast.

Apple finally (FINALLY) released a tool for getting out of Messages if you leave the iPhone. Quitters.

We discuss both the Masque and Wirelurker attacks and some of the salacious coverage of them.

Both Dan and John have the problem with Macs appearing multiple times on the network in Yosemite. Lex doesn't. Go figure.

We talk about politicians opinions about net neutrality, even though John thinks he's already handled the situation.

Then we talk about Amazon Echo which... ugh. The parody video is better.

8: Fire Everything!
I hope you like superheroes, because Dan, John, and special guest Guy English are here to tell you all about Avengers: Age of Ultron...
46:01 | 27.9 MB

Lex is on vacation (or are we on vacation from Lex?) so we've got admitted Canadian Guy English stepping in this week. We think you'll be pleased with the results, but also happy to have Lex back next week because we spend the first half of the show talking about comic books. This is a thing that happens on technology podcasts.

Check out the extended trailer for *Avengers: Age of Ultron* before you give this episode a listen. You can also review Marvel's six-year plan and DC's six-year plan, which ends with a triumphant do-over of *Green Lantern*.

About half way in we turn from the technological topic of killer robots to the topic of the Apple Watch. This week saw rumors that the stainless version will be $500 while the gold version will cost "if you have to ask you can't afford it." Also this week brought a slip by Angela Ahrendts about the Apple Watch coming in "spring."

7: Accidental Retail Podcast
Why can't we all Apple Pay everywhere all the time? John, Lex, and Dan discuss the vagaries of the retail experience.
43:58 | 26.9 MB

SPOILER: We do not talk about the latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer this week. That's going to be next week. And we will talk about it because Ultron is a robot and a robot is technology. Q.E.D. It's unassailable logic.

In a vain attempt to alleviate our problem with cross-talking in this podcast, we go video. Which you can't see except for a screenshot here.

What we really discuss this week is Apple Pay. Dan compares it to a system called Level Up. We also talk about Square, because we're so thorough. Lex thinks he's going to like Apple Pay when he finally gets it because it means he only has to touch his own feces instead of everyone else's. The good news about Apple Pay is that you might be able to add your wife's card even if you're not authorized on it.

Surprisingly, the iPad Air 2 includes an NFC chip, even though it apparently doesn't do anything yet.

Speaking of not doing anything, in New Jersey and Oregon you can't pump your own gas.

We discuss the menu at McDonald's, which we know people have been clamoring for us to do.

Dan ordered himself an Amazon Fire TV stick. Lex and Moltz have both ordered a Kano for one each of their kids. They don't think Dan could handle it.

Siri can give you predicted sports outcomes but it turns out they're not very good.

6: Time to Die
You'd think that Lex, Dan, and John could let last week's Apple event go, but no—they're too angry...
44:56 | 27.8 MB

We start with our impressions of Yosemite and how much Dan likes it and thinks it's flawless. Lex and Moltz suggest trying this out if the Yosemite look is too much: go into System Preferences and Accessibility and check Increase Contrast.

Neven Mrgan suggests reducing transparency and increasing contrast.

We then talk about the relative worth of the tiers of Apple's products which is a thing that Moltz wrote about. There's a lot of value in the current iPad lineup, but it's still oddly skewed.

None of us owns a Retina Mac but supposedly Yosemite is built for these devices we can't afford. The rest of us might do well to dial some of the visuals back. You may not like the transparency but it's better than the transparency in Windows 7 which was over the top.

We also discuss Apple Pay and chip and PIN. Soon we'll all be paying for things with our Apple Watches which come in many design styles, if you haven't heard.

5: Not Long Enough
Maybe Apple should have waited a little bit longer to hold another event. John, Lex, and Dan discuss (read: complain about) the latest announcements.
35:46 | 22.1 MB

This week Apple event MAAAADNESS! sweeps through the Rebound podcast! Catch the fever! Relive the action of... skits! Wonder how they could literally have Stephen Colbert on and have it not be funny!

Well, some nice products still came out of Thursday's Apple event. A whole new iPad lineup featuring all those things we kinda expected, new Mac minis and Retina iMacs. Also, Yosemite is out, iOS 8.1 arrives on Monday and a developer kit for the Apple Watch will be released in November.

And no Bono. Completely Bono-free event. So, that's good.

4: Way Too Long
It's all about Dan not liking iOS 8 (and John and Lex's counterarguments) until the gang is interrupted by BREAKING NEWS.
44:11 | 27.5 MB

First, Dan needs to whine and complain about bugs in iOS 8. Lex and Moltz have no sympathy. Lex schools Dan on replying to messages from the lock screen.

THEN WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS: Apple has scheduled an event for October 16th. So we talk about what might be announced at that. Like maybe new Mac minis and a 12-inch iPad?

Lex has the temerity to question Phil Schiller’s presentation skills. Hey, Phil’s gotten a lot better over the years.

Lex then talks about his love of the Roku and how it’s better than the Apple TV. Dan and Moltz chase him off by howling and throwing remotes at him. And Boxee is the company that Samsung acquired that Moltz couldn’t remember the name of.

Finally, we talk about an Apple television set and how we don’t even really want one.

3: Shmicroshmoft
Where the hell did Windows 9 go? Does Apple have a QA problem? Are Lex's and John's spouses right not to upgrade to iOS 8? We answer none of these questions.
44:02 | 27.3 MB

First we get things rolling by talking about the hot new product everyone can’t wait to have in their enterprise environment for corporate enterprise office for workgroups, Windows 10. And, what better place than the workplace to have a sexy and sexist virtual assistant like Cortana?

Then we discuss this idea that’s floating around that Apple has a quality control problem. Yeah, well, maybe you have a quality control problem. Ever think of that?

QA is a pretty thankless task. Which brings us to a discussion of the latest releases of iOS 8. Neither Lex’s nor John’s spouses have installed iOS 8 yet, but it’s probably not because of bugs. They hate change. Which, let’s face it, is probably good for Lex and John as spouses. Divorce is a pain in the ass.

There’s an issue of how well these updates run on the oldest hardware Apple lets it run on. Is it just fast enough that it’ll run and just slow enough that it’ll entice you to upgrade your hardware?

2: State Secrets
Lex asks Dan and John about their new iPhone 6s. Everybody cringes about bendable phones. And what's the sound of one hand typing?
43:18 | 26.3 MB

This week’s episode includes John and Dan’s thoughts on their new iPhones 6. Lex just sits there and looks pretty.

Phablets are technically larger than 5.3-inches, so only the iPhone 6 Plus could be called a phablet but don’ you dare call it that.

You can read John’s thoughts on the iPhone 6 here, if you don’t want to listen to them but you should really listen.

Dan suggests reading Apple’s copy for the Watch which reads almost like a parody of Apple copy for the Watch.

The iPhone 6 is actually heavier than the iPhone 5 form factor but lighter than the iPhone 4.

If you’re concerned about why iOS 8 keyboards need full access, you can read SwiftKeys’ response here.

We even get into Bendghazi. And this was recorded two days ago, before Bendghazi was sweeping the nation.

1: Emergency U2 Podcast
Dan, John, and Lex convene to discuss an important matter: Who's been downloading U2 albums?
33:07 | 20.5 MB

In our inaugural episode, we convene to discuss the most important issue of our time: the delivery of free music to our devices. Some key opinions about this:

"Apple, U2 and looking a gift horse in the mouth"

"Mad About U2"

"Anger Over Songs Of Innocence"

Personally, we hope we're still talking about this... on New Year's Day. (The U2 jokes just write themselves. Unfortunately.)

Lex wrote a piece detailing why he's excited about the Apple Watch.

Then we talk iPhone thinness versus battery life and segue into iOS 8 keyboards like TextExpander.
