This week the Caldwell/Breen team rejoins to discuss the broken dreams of those who were hoping for iWatch and new Apple TV announcements at WWDC, what makes fitness apps and devices so attractive for some, the good and evil of Find My iPhone, how this whole Net Neutrality thing is already starting to unravel, and what a future Apple retail store might offer.

In this week’s podcast we welcome another Dan (Frakes, in this case) to mull over the news of the week. And that news is contentious indeed. We begin by talking about the effects of Amazon’s acquisition of the ComiXology app (good for Amazon, bad for the comic book culture). We then peek, in a confused sort of way, into a future MacBook Air upgrade that, to you now, is a thing of the past. Next we climb on a high horse and say unkind things about the FCC and its chairman. And we finish by climbing atop the higher horse standing on the previous horse’s back and rant a bit about how large companies can get away with all kinds of untoward actions provided they have the cash on hand to pay their way out of their poor behavior.

We’re back for another look at the past week in Apple (and related tech industry) news. We touch on Amazon’s purchase of Comixology and what the retail giant might get out of the deal, discuss the latest announcements and apps from Dropbox, try to read the tea leaves and figure out what the future of the iTunes Store holds, decide whether or not we’ll be upgrading our car stereos for aftermarket CarPlay units, and attempt to decipher just what is going on with the whole analyst/pundit community.

In this week’s look at the doings surrounding Apple and its environs we address a number of burning issues of the day, starting with the allegedly smoldering tempers of some Apple executives. Specifically, we pay one-of-many-visits-to-come to the most recent Apple/Samsung legal wrangle, discuss Amazon’s Fire TV and what it means for Apple TV, bow down before Monument Valley, talk a bit about the latest iWork updates (and Pages’s ebook improvements), admire AnyFont’s sneaky way of installing fonts on iOS via profiles, and speak about troubleshooting iOS battery drain issues.

Our time at last week’s Macworld/iWorld was both energizing and exhausting (energizing during, exhausting following) but we’ve managed to drag ourselves from our daybeds to comment on the issues of the week. Those issues include Apple and Samsung returning to the courtroom, what Microsoft Office for iPad means to us, our impressions of last week’s show, and Yahoo’s recent spending spree.
