It’s that time of year for the annual Ig Nobel Awards to be awarded to those scientists who publish the worst, oddest, most irreproducible, or downright weird research. Joe and Rob have a hard time with this one, but only because they could not stop laughing at the squeaking alligators, narcissist unibrow quotients, and knives made from…wait, what?
In part 1 of our two part series on “what’s in our Dock” TJ let’s us know what apps are in his Dock that he uses on a regular basis. And he particularly bores Joe when he gets to the development tools. But that’s to be expected when a designer and a developer do a podcast together.
Have you heard the good news about Verizon 5G Verizoning it’s 5G way around the Verizon 5G world? Because Verizon 5G is here! In this episode, TJ and Joe talk about Verizon 5G!, the new HomePod Mini, Verizon 5G!, the new iPhones 12, and Verizon 5G! Brought to you by Verizon 5G! (disclaimer: not actually brought to you by Verizon 5G!)
Rob follows up thoughts about the origin of life, and tells us all about the new research/model that tried and failed to simulate the origin of life. And to top it off, many want to know when scientists will solve the problem of death so we can all live forever. So, will they???
Usually, scientists like to tell us how life started on planet Earth and how it might exist elsewhere in the universe. But do they tell you something they know from scientific observation or from shots in the dark? Joseph and Rob discuss the difficulty figuring out life’s beginning, and in the grand scheme of things how terribly unlikely it is to find life anywhere.
TJ’s Watch Series 6 has arrived and it’s everything he dreamed! Also, we know you’re just dying to hear more about widgets in iOS 14 and we’re here to please. And what’s up with iPad OS 14 missing some of the basic new features of iOS 14? And is Apple really doing a good job of curating the App Store? Someone has to ask the hard questions, so we do!
