As usual, a great episode. That was a really interesting discussion set.

And, per Guy's offhand suggestion, here's to hoping maybe you guys can land someone who knows Google's Go language.

iPhone 5s review: 6-months later http://www.imore.com/iphone-5s-review-6-months-later
The iPhone 5s launched roughly 6 months ago. It was greeted by the usual ennui over its unchanged design and un-embiggened screen, and skepticism over the real-world utility of its Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor and 64-bit Apple A7processor. The iSight camera was well received, even though some mourned the lack of optical image stabilization, and the new color option became the...

Just switched from the Galaxy Note 3 to the iPhone 5S. Love it!! The big thing about IOS is that it just works. Even with the snapdragon 800 on the note 3 I could still get lag on the device. Have not had IOS lag once on me and it's great!! If the the iPhone 6 phablet is true I would love an iPhone with a note 3 sized screen!! :) FYI love the podcast.

Because some days you wake up to such stupidity it makes you write hundreds of words before coffee.

Apple needs another iPhone-class product or they're doomed. We heard it right after the iPhone was released. We heard it right after the iPad was released. We're hearing it now. From shoddy journalists to market mad-people it's the single most consistent, most bullshit Apple narrative of the last half-decade.

Last year, Tim Cook said that in 2014, Apple would come up with "new and exciting categories of products". Some may think Apple folks are taking their sweet time coming up with something new, but I agree with your article wholeheartedly: Apple may take time in coming up with something new but when it does, it just works. I wouldn't want Apple to change just for market shares. They have money.

Another ( out there ) way of looking at it is from a medium term perspective: We are progressing at a good pace towards a technological singularity. When we get there, I'm willing to bet Apple's contributions will just work, and they won't need to be revolutionary.

When I redesigned my podcast studio a couple of months ago I really wanted to fill the background with things that were both interesting visually but also kind of cool. While shopping for my godkids at Toys R Us, I saw the Lego Batman Arkham Asylum. I loved lego as a kid and played the Lego Batman game for hours with my little brother, so it seemed like something super geek on so many levels. 

So, I bought, built it, and then began the longer process of tracking down the other available minifigures. (Needless to say, my godkids made out light bandits getting a ton of extra sets, minus a few figures.)

Now, finally, it's about 99% done and it's in place across from the Steve Jobs action figure and plush doll, bookmarking the original iPad and iPad mini, all the generations of iPhone, the camera equipment, and the Nexus/Lumia/Blackberry shelf.

Here are a bunch of pictures for the Lego nerds!
