    With the Giants having a decidedly ‘ruff’ start to the season, we instead turn our attention to those wonderful Buster Posey Toyota ads, Apple’s Q2 results, ESPN’s changing fortune, and an FCC that seems to have forgotten whom it works for.

    March 22nd, 2017  |  1 hr 31 mins

    As a nation we have never been more divided, well except maybe during that whole civil war thing. Look no further than today’s Apple — three year old Macs, peppermint iPhones, multi-iPad lifestyles, and people who insist on leaving no thumb safety slots on their homescreen. Can and will Phil Schiller answer the call to “Make Macs Great Again”? 🇺🇸.

  • Episode 104: Ikea Based Existence

This week, those unsettling realizations plus: immersive business 3-in-1s from HP, WWDC moves back to San Jose, Tim Cook says "let's meet at Apple [Park]", smart home shower thoughts, and Ryan's gigantic phone has an unfortunate run-in with the sidewalk.

  • Episode 101: Mr. Musk

    February 8th, 2017  |  1 hr 9 mins

    It's been another exhausting week. First the FTC fines Vizio $2.2M for tattling to advertisers that you just watched thirty eight episodes of the West Wing in a row while crying under a blanket. Then Travis Kalanick gets thrown under the uberX for participating in Trump's economic council while Elon Musk rides away scot-free in his self-driving Model X. And now the leader of the free world is tweeting about waiting around for Easy D? Save us, Martin Sheen — you’re our only hope.

  • Episode 100: Sports and Old Age

    February 1st, 2017  |  1 hr 17 mins

    Episode 💯. When we started out two and a half years ago, we famously said: "...we choose to record this mostly weekly program and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." Suffice it to say, mission accomplished.

    This week, we get around to some long overdue introductions and take a look back at what stuck and what didn't. Wait… which one are you again? 🤔.
