Podcast 485: AT&T bumming out grandfathers

A data plan rate hike and a distressing headphone jack rumor make this podcast a week of "whaaaaa"?

When you’ve had one thing in your life that’s stayed exactly the same for seven long years, it can be jarring when suddenly it’s different, even if it’s just a little different. AT&T is raising the price of the unlimited iPhone plan they stopped offering to new subscribers in 2012, and suddenly Susie’s world is a little more topsy-turvy than it was before.

Elsewhere, we talk deals on iTunes credit, how excited we are for even just the rumor of an Amazon Instant Video app for Apple TV, and the possible death of the headphone jack on future iPhones.
