Lex will be back next week but it’s just Dan and John this week.
Apple had a record quarter again (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/01/apple-announces-q1-2015-results-today/), despite the dreaded currency headwinds. Brr.
Gene Munster got no answers on the Apple TV yet again. Dan likes his Fire TV (http://www.amazon.com/Amazon-W87CUN-Fire-TV-Stick/dp/B00GDQ0RMG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422649498&sr=8-1&keywords=fire+tv) and Plex (https://plex.tv). The CEO of HBO has famously said he doesn’t care if people share HBO Go logins (http://www.buzzfeed.com/mattlynley/hbos-ceo-doesnt-care-that-you-are-sharing-your-hbo-password#.nwy6PgzY9).
Contrary to what John says in this episode, Netflix is not losing Doctor Who (http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/19/entertainment/netflix-bbc-doctor-who-feat/index.html). It is losing some other shows.
Apple Pay is coming to 200,000 more outlets (http://www.macworld.com/article/2834669/the-ultimate-guide-on-how-and-where-to-use-apple-pay.html).
John talks about his career using plastic disks (http://davewooldridge.com/post/8666912823/for-all-you-star-trek-fans-toy-collectors-i) as counterfeit nickels.
It’s notable that Apple had the most profitable quarter of any company ever (http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/27/apple-just-had-the-biggest-quarterly-earnings-of-any-company-ever/). And that Apple sold more smartphones than Samsung (http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/28/smartphone-report-q4-2014/). For some reason.
