Podcast 490: iOS 9.3, CES, and the mess that is News

Susie and Glenn reunite to talk about everything from yoga robots to Apple's many failures to help the media business.

Susie's back from her time covering the madness of CES, which is always insane for us tech reporter types, whether you're on the ground in Vegas or holed up in your house in Oakland, like Susie was, editing until your fingers fall off. Even though Apple has no official presence at the massive show, tech trends emerge that will trickle down to Cupertino's product lines eventually—ad we saw plenty of products that could come in handy for Apple fans today.

Elsewhere, iOS 9.3 is out, with some new features that sound cool, and some additions to CarPlay that have us wondering why those things weren't already in CarPlay. We also talk about the seemingly sad state of the News app, which doesn't seem to be doing much for publishers, and as of yet hasn't captivated your friendly podcast hosts as readers, either. Do you like News? Let us know in the comments.

As always, thanks so much for listening!
