  • Talking iPhone6s features.
  • Talking live motion photos on iPhone6s
  • Faster response time with iPhone6s touch ID for unlocking the phone. But, is it too fast?
  • Selfieflash is a thing with iPhone6s – We’ve warned you.
  • For iPhone6s cases make sure it has a lip. (That’s what adds protection to your screen when your phone drops.)
  • Listening to Chilla’s thoughts about app thinning. There’s some debate. How much phone do we need?
  • Force touch mouse on the iPhone6s. It’s MAGIC!
  • New Nexus phones came out today! Nexus 5X is happening for our non-fruit fans.

  • Blackberry Priv to launch this year. It’s still relative because there is a market for folks who want a keyboard.
  • White House announces broadband is a core utility and should be available to everyone – like power and water.
