AwesomeCast 323: Awkward Poses

  • Chilla is testing the new Google Project Tango phone; the Lenovo Phab2 Pro
  • AJ thinks that the TouchID is awesome.  It runs it’s own MacOS and should be in a stand alone keyboard, Apple!
  • Sorg is geeked over the Final Cut Pro X update with the Macbook Pro sensor bar.
  • We determine the Microsoft Surface Studio is amazing, but not practical for any of us.  And could lead to back problems
  • Apple TV promises to bring our TV watching into one app in December.  Will it change our watching?
  • What does the WWE Network and DirecTV stand alone bode for other channels moving to over the top?
