31: Cramming the Excess Loop
45:02 | 20.7 MB
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).
