Podcast 477: Hello iPhone, good-bye Watch

Glenn sold his Apple Watch, and Susie bought a new iPhone. Time to talk about what a weird process that's becoming.

Susie just got back from vacation, with tired arms and a rose gold iPhone 6s. Glenn sold his Apple Watch and is in the process of upgrading his iPhone the old fashioned way—by selling it and buying a new one for full price. Buying iPhones got more confusing this time around than ever, and we can't help talking about it, even in advance of Dan Frakes's visit planned for next time.

Obviously, that's not all we talked about: Microsoft dropped the ball right off the top of El Capitan, and Amazon got tough on which streaming box will be sold in its online superstore. (No spoilers! Ha.) Plus, if ad blockers charge you to block ads, and advertisers to remain unblocked, isn't everyone losing but the ad blocker?
