81: It Came From Nebraska

That’s a typewriter!

Simon has his 25 year old Windows 3.1 laptop working... sort of, so it's time to reminisce about the good old days, when computer purchases were as expensive as a mortgage and Y2K was still an impending threat. Then it's quickly back to the modern day to discuss Apple's latest decisions that seem to trim down the company's peripheral ambitions.

This is the last 'proper' episode of 2016 and we want to thank all of our listeners for their continued support! We are working to record a Winter Special type episode around the holidays, so look out for that before the real return in 2017.

Episode 66: Listen, Phil

#moderndigitallifestyle #nofilter

Simon returns to the show to offer his take on the Apple keynote. And with that, what could have been a shallow, ten minute jog-through of snark develops instead into a deep conversation on the problems in TV Apple can’t fix, what the iPhone SE means for first-time buyers, and if the new iPad Pro really is a light in the dark for trapped Windows users. Mark and Richard take the opportunity to quiz Simon on the practicalities of replacing his parents’ 5 year-old laptop, and ridicule him for his 25 year-old laptop. Also, we make relentless puns about a certain iPhone app that, if we had it, would really help us download it.
