Jason Snell, proprietor of Six Colors, joins Glenn this week to talk about the release of El Capitan and the two new iPhones, all of which Jason tested over a very, very busy couple of weeks and published reviews of earlier this week. El Capitan is ready for business in a way that we can't remember many or any other OS X releases being. We recommend upgrading for all Yosemite users.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have significant hardware changes that translate into a great new set of experiences. 3D Touch is a winner, in Jason's estimation, while 4K video, faster Touch ID, and overall performance all add up to make both models seem very different from their predecessors, even as they look almost identical.
