We really catch up here as we haven't been together for a while.

Myself and Adam open with some discussion to find a third host for the show who also lives in Hong Kong. Then we discuss 80s/90s nostalgia (discovering the truth behind the Power Rangers) and the most metal parts of the original transformers movie. None of the Michael Bay shit.

We touch on the topic of the new iPhone 7, nitpicking the nitpickers who bought them, whats my work flow like with only one lightning port. We come to the conclusion Apple should troll the press and call the 10th anniversary a 7s even though its all new. We discuss what we like and dislike about the new phone, and tangentially talk about some Apple products like icloud backups finally working for me. We didn't forget the camera bump.

That new Mario game, have you heard of it? Surprisingly some people haven't, nor the original Nintendo. Nostalgia creeps in.

Did you know its still a thing how people complain about the price of an app on the App Store. I get warnings from Apple on their refund policy.

Consequences of digital devices as pacificers - how do we go about developing new behavours and norms around them, using phones in cinemas. Why do people do this? Because of that I want to download movies on itunes instead of going to the cinema now.

I finally have something to watch and discuss with Adam, Stranger Things is on the menu.

Is the setting actually accurate? Comparing it against milestone 80s movies. I’m also on the penultimate episode! I don’t know what happens for the season finale!

Quick discussion of Doctor Strange and how they butchered the Hong Kong scenes.

Last topic, is the price of computing set to rise and nobody told us? We reflect on the release of the new MacBook Pro and whats to come with the iMac in 2017.

Show Notes

We complain about the new Marvel DC release, no sorry how could I possibly confuse the two when there is such a difference between the two franchises? We also talk a bit more about Apple news and discuss some of my Periscope endeavours.

In this episode we discuss the recent Apple Keynote for September 2016. In here we lament the loss of Steve Jobs’ ability to keep us on the edge of our seats, the new Apple Watch, of course the new iPhone, gripe about charging batteries all fucking day, my new DJI Phantom4, the lack of true tone with the iPhone, a little issue of the headphone jack being removed, why didn’t apple just release a phone with two ports instead of an adapter and we discuss buying Apple iPhones on release day.

In this final Game of Thrones episode from season 6, we do a quick round up, calling out the bullshit and best moments of the storylines we did and didn’t like from the last five episodes.

Basically we are better battle generals than John Snow and we know how to deliver the line ‘dracaris’ better than the mother of dragons.

Adam says nothing really happens in the first three episodes of Game of Thrones, fuck him because I had to do a podcast all by myself.

In this episode I will dominate the last 5 episodes of Game of Thrones because nobody else can do it with me. It's all me, not since episode 29 did this happen.
