In this episode we catch up on Apple’s recent quarterly results, which boil down to Great Googly Moogly, That Is So Much Money! We also ponder how Apple’s retail experience might change with the introduction of the gold Apple Watch. To no one’s surprise The Pirate Bay has resurfaced and we talk about it and the effects of piracy. Nest owners (Chris is one) can now justify their fancy thermostat thanks to two-out-of-three surveys. And we wonder at the doings of Verizon programmer, Brian, who is clearly responsible for the company’s half-baked perma-cookies.
