For the Summer of Fun, Jason and Myke compare their iPhones—one’s Max, one’s Mini, but which one has the most apps and which one has the most photos? Also, Mark Gurman’s got our next 75 episodes plotted out thanks to his detailed dump of future Apple product announcements, Jason is unenthusiastic about the M2 MacBook Pro, and Justin did it.


AI will soon be replacing all of your hosts on The Lex and Dan Show.


Our frivolous in-app purchases, how we use tech to stay safe in the age of COVID, our thoughts on RCS messaging, and recognizing the signs of true artificial intelligence.


This week we consider Stage Manager and how it works, as well as how Apple has chosen to communicate its decision-making. Also, Apple makes a surprising deal with Major League Soccer, Myke decides that an iPad Studio and MacBook Studio sound like great new products, and we dare to ask the question: what if they made a laptop entirely out of legacy nodes?


How we work on our Macs, the Cryptopocalypse, our cloud storage regimens, and what is still keeping us from using the iPad as our main devices.



With the clash between “Stranger Things” and Star Wars, the summer streaming blockbuster season has begun! And we inaugurate a new segment, Sports Corner, as the path of sports on streaming media sports has begun to change dramatically.


It’s the aftermath of a WWDC like no other, so in this very special episode Myke and Jason kick off the Summer of Fun with an episode recorded live in the California sun. The breeze is blowing, the questions about the M2 processor and Stage Manager are flowing, and we’re trying to get our heads around what last week’s announcements mean for the future of Apple’s platforms.


Our excitement and trepidation regarding Passkeys, our thoughts on auto-generated Siri App Shortcuts, the most exciting features announced at WWDC, and our inevitable (?) USB-C future.


Live from Apple Park, Jason has a first-hand report from the WWDC Keynote. (Myke was nearby, but that’s a whole other story.) Together they discuss groundbreaking iPad news, the new M2 Macbook Air, some familiar iPhone lock screen customization features, and a whole lot more.


Apple software improvements we want to see at WWDC, the technology-themed art that graces our walls, which browsers we use, and why printers are the worst.


What do “Stranger Things” and “Obi Wan Kenobi” tell us about the present and future of Netflix and Disney+? Also, Netflix’s “The Gray Man,” a revived “Daredevil,” and we answer your letters!


It’s time for our seventh annual competition regarding what will happen at Apple’s WWDC keynote! In a surprise development, Jason and Myke are attending in person—but beyond that, they’re totally in the dark. Will it be inside or outside? Will it be live, or recorded? Will there be new hardware announced? It’s time to let our imaginations run wild.


How we discover new apps, how we force ourselves to take breaks during the workday, our methods for managing our Mac’s menu bar, and the most impressive and useful tech in our kitchens.



The much-rumored Apple AR/VR headset appears to be on the horizon, so Myke and Jason break down several reports about its development and debate what approach Apple should take. And as WWDC approaches, there are also rumblings about a new HomePod, Apple Watch design changes, and more Apple displays.



Have we all cut the cord? Plus, tech items we can’t justify purchasing, Apple’s new accessibility features, and how we wrangle SIMs and eSIMs when traveling.


After years watching the old Netflix cruise along as the top streamer, things are getting interesting as it shifts gears and engages the realities of today’s streaming scene. We discuss Netflix changes and Julia reviews Disney’s financial results.


Is Apple ready to embrace USB-C across its entire product line? Jason loves his Playdate, but is frustrated by Apple Music playing songs he dislikes. And the music may go on, but the iPod won’t be coming along for the ride.
