Power on for the TSA!

Sure, the long weekend may have seen you and your pals gathered around the barbecue, quaffing sudsy libations and setting things on fire but there was no rest for the gallant latex-gloved, ill-fitting-uniformed members of our own Transportation Security Administration or, well, robots.

WWDC '14 Roundup

In this special edition of the podcast we’re joined by Macworld editor Dan Miller, who—like the rest of our crew—kept a close eye on Apple’s WWDC announcements. We took several moments out of a busy day to discuss what was announced, what it means, and how it was presented. If you’re interested in our take on Mac OS X Yosemite, iOS 8, and the import of the arcane tools used to build the software you love, listen in.
