Rob and Joseph wax eloquent and speculative on various aspects of the Christmas story. Have you ever wondered who the Magi were, where they came from, and what was the nature of that star that they saw? Fear no, they go there. What about the genetics of Jesus? Yeah, they speculate about that also, hopefully without getting into too much heretical hot water. Finally, they discuss the physics of Santa Claus, attempting to cast doubt on that aged story, but then they bring in the big guns: four physicists who defend the Santa story using science…or did they?
Did you know that there’s a secret history to smart phones? Well there is. And The Verge has a documentary about it, which TJ and Joe talk about.

Rob continues to review the origins of modern computers and together Joseph and Rob are just astonished how far technology has come in the last 50 years. Dr. Carter admits it’s really hard to understand computer sciences and think like an engineer.
Joseph shares his first impressions of his new iPhone 13 mini, Cinematic Mode, ProMotion, and what he thought of the other iPhone models he played with at the Apple Store. Then, for the big reveal, we learn what pathetic car stereo Joseph purchased. Next, Joseph shopped for a new car charger mount while TJ got off of his chest all his concerns for the corporatism that continues to take over Apple from the inside.
