About this Episode

Katie and Sorg are joined by Doug Derda this week. We were able to get Katie and Sorg away from Animal Crossing long enough to talk about this week’s news in tech, including:
Katie is torn between her iPhone X and being dubbed in German as her Awesome Thing of the Week.
Katie is talking about some of the cool stuff she’s done with her iPhone X for video.
Doug is talking the future of smartphones with Samsung’s new battery tech that could fully charge a phone in minutes.
Sorg is blaming Katie for his addiction to his Awesome Thing of the Week – Animal Crossing Pocket Camp.
Y’know what, if you don’t want to wait 7 hours for pizza, head over to Slice and get some perfect pepperoni pizza.
Although net neutrality issues aren’t cool, Pitchwerks put the perfect explanation together with some help from Spare Change.
Shout out to Brian Crawford for picking up an iPad Pro. Speaking of – we’re talking about his question about whether or not we need a traditional laptop anymore.
Watching TV while playing video games? Doug is talking about how things are changing.
Back to the Future reference thanks to Doug and his multiple device usage commentary.
If we’re doing all this stuff IRL, can you imagine VR adaptations?
We talked last week about Ello coming back. People have noticed. There is naked spam.
We’re talking some Carnegie Science Center omnimax upgrades!
Want to kick your smartphone addiction? There’s a Substitute Phone to help you.
