Ep. 34 – (no) Self Control

Hey fans – support the show by picking up a limited edition t-shirt from ImperialShirtCo.com. It’ll make you irresistible to the opposite sex, and it’ll throw a few shekels our way to keep the lights on. T-shirts not your thing? If you’d rather just throw us a couple of bucks, you can do that on our Patreon page.

This week the guys talk about Pope Francis’ missive on climate change. He’s a kinder, gentler, more science-y pope. Huzzah!

Microsoft’s own Skype team has announced that they’re abandoning Windows Everywhere and going back to being a plain ‘ol Win32 app.  What does this mean for the future of Microsoft’s write-once-run-anywhere game plan when their own keystone software projects and products aren’t using it?

Jeff argues that there is evidence that cops are safer than ever before, crime is on the decline, and – gosh darnit – people are just nicer.  Jacob thinks it might be a bunch of hooey, but a new study seems to back Jeff up!

The guys finally break down and buy Apple Watches – you just knew it was only a matter of time before that happened. They talk about what they love about the Apple Watch, what could be better, and where they hope Apple goes. They both picked up the 42mm Apple Watch Sport edition (if you were curious).

Misfit Wearables provides the guys with a Misfit Shine activity and fitness tracker for a review. After spending time with it the guys give it their seal of approval. It’s a tiny, fully waterproof, and downright elegant activity tracker that’ll only set you back about $75. Misfit manages to pack A LOT of features and style into a little package with not too many drawbacks. Their verdict; if you’re in the market for a wearable, give the Misfit Shine a seriously hard look. Keep listening to a future episode to learn how you can enter to win a Misfit Shine of your very own!

Lastly, the guys talk about what they love.
