Let's go over all the highs and lows of Apple’s many new services, from news to gaming to their new streaming service, Apple TV Plus! Also, now we know why Steven Spielberg has really been so down on Netflix, and it’s both exciting and tremendously disappointing. I mean, if you love his work as I do, it’s great, but if you respected him as I do - sort of - it’s a big let-down, and a clear conflict of interest. But - Amazing Stories!! So, it’s all exciting, if a bit huge and not yet entirely clear. The new Apple credit card sound amazing, although it is all sort of becoming a bit of a company store.Read More
It's that time again - time to update your iOS, macOS and even tvOS! Apple, you are killing me today! But it's better than wasting time with a silly podcast feud, which as an adult I'm embarrassed for my former co-workers who are attempting to goad me into. I won't take the bait, though I'm legitimately saddened by their need for attention, and the degree to which our former employers shun them. It took a lot of embarrassing, actionable behavior from these knuckleheads to make me unsympathetic towards their failed lives, but they pulled it off. I am sufficiently disinterested that I won't take the bait, and give them the attention they're craving. No, I'm quite busy updating all the computers, phones, tablets and streaming boxes, thank you very much.Read More
Happy Cyber Monday! Did you catch Friday's show? If not, you will now. Some of the providers that host my podcast got a corrupted file, and no matter how many different ways I tried to fix it, nothing worked. Which is fine - I'm grateful for the syndication - but I'm re-uploading the episode for continuity's sake. New episode tomorrow, talk to you then!
Original description of episode, from Friday November 23, 2018:
Netflix has come to a mutually amicable agreement with the Satanic Temple, because not even a teenage witch is immune to the fiendish ways of copyright law. And that's not the only piece of streaming news, as rumors began to surface yesterday that Apple may be working on a low-priced Apple TV Stick, as they prepare to launch their own streaming service, and they already have a deal for a comedy series executive produced by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia)! The streaming world is getting more crowded by the day, so don't go crazy and spend all your money on Black Friday/Cyber Monday - you'll need it if you want to afford all this new content coming out in 2019.
