Podcast 466: Baby you can park my iPod
Susie's cold is finally gone, Apple put out a sweet new iPod touch, and Glenn used apps to turn his rental car into KITT from Knight Rider. Good times.
Remember Knight Rider? Remember how KITT, the awesome talking Trans-Am, could travel independently of our hero Michael Knight? Glenn came to San Francisco recently, and tested a few valet parking services that let you hand off your car in one place, go about your day fighting crime or whatever, and have your car brought to you in another place. (Michael Knight even had an Apple Watch prototype, if you think about it.)
When not freaking out about how very, very *Knight Rider* this whole thing is, Glenn and Susie discuss the sweet new iPod touch that Apple just released: Who's it for, what are its strengths, and could it hold any clues to the next low-end iPhone. The Apple Watch has been out almost three months, and still doesn't need Facebook (please, really, no Facebook), so we talk about what kinds of impacts it's made on us so far—if we're still wearing it, that is.
