Ep. 36 – Hey, Shazam!

This week the guys are talking about their Fourth weekends – both busy for different reasons.

Jacob has a run-in with Comcast; proving that they are the worst company in America. How were we – as a people – able to collectively send men to the moon (and return them safely), but in 2015 (the G.D. future mind you) we’re stuck with Comcast as the best choice for home Internet access? It’s just so hard to accept when it could be so, so, so much better!

Amazon is celebrating their TWENTIETH anniversary (holy crap, where did the last 20 years go??!) and hosting what they’re calling Prime Day.  It’s July 15th, 2015 and will feature tons and tons of massively discounted deals to Amazon Prime customers.  Get your credit cards and bank accounts ready, Prime members! Not a Prime customer?  You can signup for a 30-day free trial and still take advantage of the deals on the 15th. Here’s how to get in on the free trial: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200444170

You see them everywhere now. Vaping, e-cigaretts, hipsters blowing billowing clouds of sweet-smelling “smoke” (née vapor). How safe is it? You hear a lot that the FDA wants to regulate it just like other tobacco products. Jeff’s kids have vaping friends so he was interested in educating himself (like any good father, really). He investigates and learns a little about e-cigs and vape pens and passes the info along to you. It’s obviously not going away anytime soon, but should we all have our knickers in a bunch over it?

Lastly, the guys give a quickie review of Apple’s new music service. Is it the bee’s knees? Can it unseat Spotify as the king of the streaming mountain? Tune in and see what they think!
