About this Episode

In which we get grumpy about technology. And Karl isn’t even here this time around, so we can’t blame him.

Shownotes:
The Apple Car. We do our utmost to add to the general speculation.

At one point we begin to talk about the upgradability of the Apple Watch, and then somehow the remainder of the conversation quickly devolves into general grumpiness about technology and what it ever did for us (apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health)

Zane Lowe + Beats = Oisin’s least favourite word ever. (Hint: it’s “curation”)

Swift 1.2, yay! Still just a beta, not yet ready for production :(
