This week we dive deep into Apple’s WWDC where they release updates for their four operating systems. At the same time, E3 took place and we review a bunch of the new games announced. Oh yeah, and Microsoft bought LinkedIn.
So… It turns out that this week was full of Apple news. We swiftly run through they Unifying Theory of products, and then get into specific thoughts on products. Matthew is particularly excited about Swift, and I don’t blame him.
Also listen for Adobe’s product name change and PlayStation’s moves to bring back some classic games. Check out the show notes below.
This week we talk about the news that happened during Thanksgiving. Perhaps the best part is Matthew’s explanation of the difference between Raspberry Pi and Arduino. We also talk about drones, ESPN, surveillance, and a few really good stories. Check out the show notes below of the details.
Happy post 4th of July! We enjoyed some massive fireworks up close and personal. Then we talked about tech:

This week represents week 1 of a 2 week series. In this part, we take a look back at 2014. What was the big news? How did we do on our predictions? Predictably, we did pretty well with Apple, Facebook and Samsung. Surprisingly, Google through us some curveballs. It’s a good show to listen to, and don’t forget to catch our predictions next week.
This week we throw caution to the wind and talk about how much we love Apple.
We briefly talk about X-Men, SeeMe, Microsoft and teleportation, but it’s mostly about Apple.
