A weird breakthrough app has us texting Hodor to all our friends; Apple kills off Aperture and iPhoto; Siri might finally understand us after a rumored update; Apple maps is poised to finally get a whole lot better; and did you know Steve Jobs always ate lunch alone like a sad Keanu? It’s true. Well, maybe. Alex doesn’t believe a word of it.
