While Serenity takes a well-deserved drive, the three of us come together to discuss the ubiquity of Dropbox (and how that might change as other cloud services provide greater benefits), what might be in store for the next Apple TV, Apple’s next hobby (the iWatch), and whether an iOS device without a traditional headphone port makes sense.
