We're taking the elephant in the room for a ride this week and jumping right into Apple's purchase of Beats, including both its Electronics and Music divisions. Since we're back in cramped confines of our NYC \"studio,\" that scenario is more implausible than usual, especially with our guest Edgar Al

It's been a long and busy week, leaving a newly nicotine-free Terrence a tad more irritable than usual. Ben's been busy too, but that just means long hours of playing Mario Kart 8. Both of these factors seem to cancel each other out and the result is a pleasant stroll through the world of Xbox One,

We have less libations, but more tech-related news than last week's peaty podcast and that's just fine for your sleep-deprived hosts. First up is some informed speculation on Amazon's new smartphone, based on a few inconclusive photos that recently surfaced. Another work in progress is Google's Pr

Things are heating up in the podcast studio this week and it's either Terrence's cardigan, Amazon's new Fire TV or the residual effects of Joseph's encounter with a real action hero. There's also a pile of news that came out of Microsoft's Build conference, which isn't surprising considering how l

Gaming has been scoring big in the headlines lately and Ben Gilbert's been paying attention. The studio that brought you BioShock Infinite has been dissolved and Doom 4 becomes 'Doom' all over again -- which is fine with Terrence since that's how he remembers it anyway. It might be IPO time for th
