Ok we get it. There was a lot to hate about 2017. But we're not going to dwell on that! This is the episode where we talk about a whole bunch of the great stuff that 2017 gave us. Like the eclipse! Remember the eclipse? That was pretty cool, right?If you haven't listened to the episode yet, I recommend you turn around now because what's listed below could technically count of a spoiler. Otherwise, it's a neatly compiled list of some of our favorite things that hopefully you will enjoy as well.Music (spotify links)Chance the Rapper - Coloring BookLogic - EverybodyHONNE - Warm on a Cold NightLupe Fiasco - DROGAS LightTaylor Swift - reputationPodcastsReconcilable DifferencesFiveThirtyEight PoliticsPod Save America/FilmcastBabysitter’s Club ClubApps (iOS app store links)OvercastSnapchatNewsFocosSlack1PasswordSquare CashYouTubeStephen ColbertHot OnesCasey Nesitat

This week, your heroes have put together an episode of Techdown that is almost surely record-breaking in length as well as quality! We briefly review the latest IT remake, talk about wireless mesh networks and then go whole hog into a discussion of the announcements that Apple has bestowed upon us on this day. We're talking cellular watches, 4K Apple Tvs, and iPhones of the X and 8 varieties. It's a shame that so much of the info in this event leaked ahead of time, but I think we've managed to be excited nonetheless!Kaumpbowl 2017 resultsCamelizerThe word we were looking for was "Snarky"John RamboMade With ARKit TwitterIn case you missed it, video of Apple's special event

The handsomest podcasters in all of tech are back to talk summer trips, fantasy football, and an upcoming Apple event that's more hotly anticipated than any in recent memory.We're fairly confident about a lot of things that are going to be announced next week, but there's definitely a lot to be excited about. And Apple is really good about using events like this to market features in such a way that they go from "Huh. That could be cool." to "Whoa I gotta have that take all my money!" in the blink of an eye.Spoilers, gosh!Weird that they call it a keynoteTahquamenon Mahna mahna

This week our heroes discuss running around and throwing colors in Ypsilanti, drinking beer in Ypsilanti, and dropping our phones onto the sidewalk in (you guessed it) Ypsilanti. We also discuss some video games and how iPads are the future of computing, which I wouldn't are is Ypsilanti-related per se.So pour yourself a glass of your favorite batch of Woodford Reserve, dim the lights, and come along with us on this grand experience we like to call Techdown.Bourbon Gents #14 "Mr Pie's High Rye"CBWNakeySUPER HOT SUPER HOT

Perhaps the cruelest trick Apple has ever pulled was providing recording studios at WWDC in hour long blocks after a keynote that's over two hours long and jam-packed with discussable material. Given that Aaron and I aren't used to dealing with time constraints like these, we apologize if this episode seems rushed. On the plus side though, Apple has really good recording equipment which makes me sound great.But somehow, we managed to hit all the big WWDC keynote topics including new Macs and iPads, AR, VR, High Sierra, iOS 11, and the introduction of the HomePod. We also make time to talk about cats, and the results of our first draft. Hold onto your hats, because this episode is a humdinger.New Macs10.5" iPad ProiOS 11High SierraHomePodDomino Kaump

Our first draft! I've been a big fan of doing drafts on podcasts ever since I started listening to The Incomparable and it's definitely something I've wanted to bring to Techdown for a while. I'm pumped that Aaron was on board to try something new, and I think the result was highly entertaining. It also allows us to raise our WWDC expectations (so that they can be dashed in a couple of days) and to look like fools when the things we predict don't end up coming to fruition. Good times.Adam's PicksAaron's PicksWe also have our first Mail Time this episode, which I believe went splendidly. I don't want to spoil anything about it in the episode notes, so I'll just say that Aaron is really really good at giving gifts and this was no exception.

There's been a lot going on lately, and your team of crack podcasters is on the case! In this episode, we discuss tackle video games, the Mac Pro, and WWDC. We also hit upon fun things word pronunciation and TV shows that can't be discussed without spoiling anything and... hey wait! Where are you going!? Stick around and we promise that it will be worth your while.Tooth fairy for macOSFULove you YahtzeecatI was hoping that this wasn't really a thing and that Aaron had actually made it all up

This week, our endearing hosts discuss Pets and Pins, Snapchat Spectacles, Binge, The Oscars, and Playstation VR. Techdown episodes are always jam packed, but this one is about as jam packed as they come. I mean, just look at that list of topics down below.

Well, it's a new year. The time when a young nerd's fancy turns to thoughts of... the next year, I guess. But before that, we take a look at all the great stuff that we got to experience in 2016. There were some truly great movies, TV shows, music, video games, apps, and technology products that came out last year, and we take a look at a whole lot of them this episode.Adam's Top Shit of 2016Aaron's Top Shit of 2016Aaron's Top Songs of 2016 Playlist

This week we talk AirPods, streaming TV station options, Mario on iOS, and Adam's new car. It's a great episode this week. Tremendous; just the best. Congratulations to everybody involved in making it happen, including you, dear listener.We had a pretty good topic list this week, and there's plenty that we could have talked about that had to be left on the cutting room floor. That's the benefit to going a month between episodes, I suppose. The downside being, of course, that we all get to spend less time together. Which is not what we want, especially around the holidays.AirPodsDirecTV NOWSuper Mario RunAudi S3Pets and Pins
