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.

WWDC was big. How big? Big enough that we’re still talking about some of the technologies introduced there—what we want to use right now and, barring that, what we can cobble together with third-party apps and sneaky techniques. We also risk a tsk at the Gray Lady and cast an admiring gaze at Elon Musk and Tesla (while understanding he likes to make a buck just as much as the next visionary).

Okay, we admit it, we were the tiniest bit breathless after last week’s WWDC keynote. However, we certainly weren’t alone. Apple unveiled a boatload of features for both Mac OS and iOS as well as some intriguing tools for our developer friends.

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.

After casting a brief WTF at the reliability of weather apps, we scrutinize rumors surrounding Apple and home automation, get the tiniest bit weary with more news of Apple/Samsung court capers, honor (and pity) Australians with hacked iCloud accounts, and marvel—through the eyes of children—at the progress of technology in the past few decades.

Spring is here and love is in the air! At least it seems to be if you’re Apple and Google or AT&T and DirecTV. (Though these affairs are likely of the more sordid commercial variety.) In addition to these corporate hookups, we discuss alleged changes coming to Apple retail stores and why the heck iTunes updates seem to be occasionally problematic.
