Another week, another new Apple product for Angelo, but it's not the iPhone X - he got a Series 3 Apple Watch for his birthday. After a quick discussion about AppleCare, Brian and Angelo talk about the insane cost of repairing an iPhone X and the fight for one’s right to repair devices at home. What’s a good Apple laptop if you want a new one, especially in light of all the keyboard issues they are experiencing? Moving into the paranormal, a quick take on some Reddit-based creepy pasta and an AI that is creating stories for the nosleep subreddit, the duo discuss JFK documents (or non-documents, as the case may be) release with a story of call 25 minutes before the assassination possibly warning of it, and a UFO hitting an NBA team plane.
