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...

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.
