Batting .500 at Pokémon Go
July 29, 2016•56 min
On this week’s episode of MashTalk, Lance, Pete and Christina discuss everything happening in the world of tech. After a brief update on Pokémon Go tactics (1:02), the gang discusses Apple (3:30) and ita latest earnings. The company made less money than it did last year, but it still managed to sell it’s billionth iPhone, which is pretty incredible. There is some discussion about whether or not we will see new Macs from Apple in September (14:30), Lance thinks no, Christina and Pete are more optimistic. Also, Christina cheated on the podcast this week. Don’t worry, she still loves MashTalk best. The Apple talk dovetails into a long discussion about Yahoo’s sale to Verizon (20:30). They spend some time discussing the last four years under Marissa Mayer and discuss whether this conclusion was really just an inevitability. Speaking of Yahoo, the discussion turns to a company that tried to buy them eight years ago, Microsoft. Microsoft has a new iOS camera app this week, Microsoft Pix (37:00). It seems really cool, but does the world really need another camera app? Speaking of stuff the world needs, Lance tries to convince Pete and Christina why Dyson’s $1000 360 Eye robot vacuum is something worth buying.
