This week the guys discuss the latest Apple offerings, the Switch and NES classic titles, then have a listener-submitted battle between a Ninja Beaver and a Karate Monkey!
From multiple new phones to an FDA approved update to the series 4 Apple watch, there were a lot of big announcements at the 2018 Apple iPhone event, but is it just the same story? Also check out what this “Heart Doctor” has to say about the Apple Watch!
Apple is apparently helping keep the idea of owning physical media alive as it’s recently been deleting movies that people have purchased from their iTunes accounts and then offering a rental voucher in return. Apple claims iTunes is just a storefront and this is not their fault, but the blame is on the movie studios no longer making the movies available. So in short, when you BUY a movie via iTunes, it turns out you don’t actually own it at all.
Jason was hard on Nintendo for shutting down ROM sites that were keeping classic gaming alive, maybe this is why. With the announced pricing and launch date of the online service for the Switch, Nintendo also announced their back catalog of NES Classics and wireless NES controllers to play them on the Switch. Best news? Some of the NES Classic titles will include online play!
Ninja Beaver – armed with a light saber, literally afraid of his own shadow
Karate Monkey – can teleport, no depth perception
