148: Broke, But Blingin'

Alex Sitbon

In this week's CultCast:

It’s official, friends: on October 16th, Apple will hold yet another hardware event, so ready your wallets, cause another round of gadgets is headed our way. We run through our list of iPad and Mac expectations. Plus, ever wonder what it’s like to have a brand new iPhone 6 Plus stolen right out of your hands? Well we can tell you first hand (no pun intended), and we want your help to catch the crooks.

147: Extra-Gadgetal Affairs

Alex Sitbon

In this week's CultCast:

It’s no coincidence — your love for Apple and their pretty little gadgets was Steve Jobs' master plan; Bendgate might seem overblown, but where there’s smoke there’s fire; we love our iPhone 6 Pluses, but dear lord, they’re huge. And finally, Jony Ive gains a counterpart in Apple's newest Industrial Designer.

146: BENDghazi

Alex Sitbon

In this week's CultCast:

Bendgate! Some say it’s Antennagate 2.0, but is there a legitimate issue happening here? We’ll tell you what we think about these “bent” iPhones… Then, we’ve used it for a whole week—catch our updated impressions of iPhone 6. Plus, why you should hold off on installing iOS 8.0.1, and what you can do if you already have. And finally, it’s not just the big screen, there might be another reason the iPhone 6 has been impossible to buy. We’ll tell you our stories from launch day…

145: Death of a Classic

Alex Sitbon

In this week's CultCast:

The reviews are in! We’ll tell you what people love and don’t about the iPhone 6. Then, RIP, iPod Classic. We remember the humble beginnings of the device that built the new Apple. And finally, Apple announced a base price of $349 for the Apple Watch, sure, but the prices for the other editions might make even Rolex envious. All that plus the lesser know features of iOS 8; how to get U2 out of your iTunes; and a new social video app has taking more selfies than ever.
