Nintendo has some mean, nasty lawyers. Tim updates on the last mini-Arcade build, discusses the use of mini PCs, and catches up with the Amazon Fire TV. David arrives late, having done something bone-headed, but comical at the same time! Finally, TiVO takes on Apple!
Amazon sends Tim the new Fire TV for review, but he only just got it so too early for that yet. Amazon also refuses to sell either the Apple TV or the Chrome Stick for not supporting Amazon Prime Video, and David thinks it is anti-competitive, while Tim is just confused by it. Will there be a PS Vita successor? What happened with iFixIt? And Tim gets a free breakfast!
Tim and David go on a one-topic rant about digital downloads. David has a chat with Apple about getting a refund for BioShock, and they act out the transcript. If you have ever wanted to hear Tim do a falsetto, and who hasn’t?, this is the episode for you. Plus, Tim finds an inexpensive arcade, David is getting an iPhone 6s, and more.
