Tim and David discuss the Steam Spy news, FTC telling companies that third party repairs do not void warranties, Mark on Capital Hill, suggestion for Apple, and Lenovo news and Wikitrolling!
Tim and the returning David discuss hacking the FireTV Stick, HDMI inputs on a Mac, 17-inch MBP upgrades, Xbox One, connected devices, crappy controls on monitors, podcast editing, John Martellaro’s Background Mode, and much more.
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!
