This episode is coming out pretty late… so most of the news being covered in Alan and Chess' discussion is no longer "news”.  But feel free to jump in the time machine and hear what they had to say about some important tech topics before they became no longer relevant…  the Apple/FBI/iPhone controversy, the March 2016 Apple Event and what to expect, experiments with VR and Google Glasses, Tesla, and much more.  And, as always, Alan and Chess share their tech picks of the month. Picks Chess: Flowstate - Overman Alan: Gridblock - PulseFix LLC   Your panelists: Chess Hoyle (Twitter: @chesshoyle, www.aisle7studios.com), Alan Jackson (Twitter: @alanjackson, www.jginteractive.com)

Alan and Chess wrestle with the biggest tech issues of the day… which includes coming up with a new name for the show. It looks like “Dual Booting” may be the winner… but no one is ready to commit quite yet. In other news, they discuss Apple’s latest quarter report, rumors of wireless charging on the next iPhone, iTunes Radio shutting down free streaming, and drones… lots and lots of drones. Alan and Chess also give their picks of the month: Chess chooses “Airmail” and Alan picked “Sleep Cycle”… both available on the iOS App Store! Airmail Sleep Cycle @alanjackson @chesshoyle

There’s lots to talk about in the world of tech, with a special emphasis on Apple-related news.  Alan and Chess talk about the new Apple TV (which neither of them own) and the new iPad Pro (which neither of them own), and why they do not own either of them yet.  Along with the typical Apple prognostications, they also talk about Twitter’s change from “Stars” to “Loves”, Facebook getting into the Snapchat game, and the popular movie genre known as “body-switching” films.  Judge Reinhold, you are welcome on our show anytime.

The latest Apple announcements have brought us an iPad Pro, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and a new Apple TV (to Alan’s extreme excitement).  Chess and Alan pick apart all of these new products, discuss whether or not they will plan to get one and why, and do a little slamming of the Apple Watch while they’re at it.  Along for the ride on this episode is Apple fanboy Chris Frye (co-host of the Footcandle Films Podcast). Plus, there is some very brief talk about Google and Microsoft somewhere in there… maybe towards the very end.

Have any of our panelists ordered an Apple Watch?  (Spoiler: the answer is ‘no’.)  Despite that, they are still at least talking about the Watch, the newest MacBook, some Internet TV set-top box rumors, and the new Photos app on OS X.  Alan and Chess hold down the fort and talk about the latest tech and Apple-related news.  And apologies all around for this episode posting so, so late… Picks:  Alan picked the “Fan TV” app, while Chess picked “Periscope”.
