Chi-chow, cadets! Apple ninjas made an extortion attempt disappear! In more shocking news, Apple made all the monies, and pundits were surprised by this! Rumors of lossless Apple Music, a spat over YouTube, and Sigfried & Roy ... and we're not lion about that! Buckle down, cadets, we're trying out the new Infinite Improbability Drive and that means…
 
AppleInsider's William Gallagher joins Cap’n Charles for another spelunk into what they didn't tell us at the Spring Loaded event, the egg on the face of Discord and Parler, gaming news from xCloud and EA, Brydge & Logitech help fix the Magic Keyboard 12.9" problem, and Wisconsin falls for Foxconn's fibs ... yet again!https://appleinsider.com/artic…
 
The main portion of this extra-length Special Report covers yesterday's event, cadets, but we also sneak in some bonus Malcolm alongside special guest Aitan Roubini, plus details from beyond the public event, and a few laughs, even!https://www.apple.com/apple-events/april-2021/https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/04/12/tim-cook-praises-canadian-app…
 
Malcolm Owen from the AppleInsider colony joins us this week, cadets, just ahead of the April 20th Apple Event! He and Charles go over the latest rumors, a major news leak involving Google, good news for mobile gamers, and a surprising amount of truly bizarre side stories! Make sure you've had your anti-reality vaccine, cadets ... it's gonna get we…
 
It's another hectic pass through the Kessel Run, cadets, but we'll cut past the Maw and shave some parsecs off if we don't die! iPhones are still a hit with teens, Tim says he'll retire someday, Find My gets some third-party love, and old fogeys can't imagine that "elites" will just "come up" with a secure way to vote someday! What balderdash!https…
 
Buckle up, cadets, this week is going to be a bumpy ride! There's all kinds of good news, from the upcoming iOS 14.5, new Siri voices and the Apple Arcade game-splosion, but there's also some notable bad news: Facebook, Google, AT&T, and (unsurprisingly) Congress! Crash helmets at the ready, cadets, it's like a game of asteroids out here!https://ap…
 
The big tech CEOs testified before Congress, cadets, but Congress didn't seem to actually want to hear from them! They should have talked to Intel -- their CEO can talk out of both sides of his mouth, apparently! All this, much more, and yet another Canadia retrieving their iPhone from frozen waters! Stay tuned, cadets -- your mental exercise perio…
 
A week of epic fails, cadets, and we're not just talking about the makers of Fortnite! Intel reeks of fear, the pundit gallery got played by Apple, some big devs are being lazy about M1 compatibility, and Zuckerberg learns to backtrack! Stay sharp, cadets ... things are getting weird!https://www.imore.com/homepod-camera-gaze-control-revealed-new-ap…
 
Mike had to run outside for a spacewalk of the ship's K9 unit, cadets, so Alan Perry has stepped in to help handle plenty of news, from the original HomePod being discontinued (boo) to what to do if you fall through the ice, and so much more! Lively discussion ahead, cadets, so fire up the Atmos for the full sensurround-around-around!https://applei…

Too much news and tight on time, cadets, so we'll bust out the Improbability Drive and cover everything noteworthy, everywhere, all at once (maybe)! Keep a tight grip on your mind -- here we go!https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/02/23/questions-raised-about-m1-mac-ssd-longevity-based-on-incomplete-datahttps://appleinsider.com/articles/21/02/26/ap…
 
This week, cadets, your co-Cap'ns reversed the polarity of the neutron flow because we've got excess shenanigans, new gadgets, and much more! Sit tight, cadets, bluffs are getting called left and right!https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/02/19/apple-to-support-winter-storm-relief-efforts-in-texas-other-us-stateshttps://9to5mac.com/2021/02/15/bloom…
 
We're in orbit around an ice world this week, cadets, so stay close to the ... wait for it ... space-heater! Hyundai and Kia blow their chance to build a car with Apple, Bloomberg steps back into their own fiasco, Zuckerberg wants your medical data, and a surprising number of allegedly smart people said some really dumb things this week! Stay warm …
 
Cap’n Mike is on the bridge, cadets, so heave ho! We were right about the “Apple Car,” Homebrew and Homepod get upgrades, Bezos gives up being Amazon's CEO, Microsoft is copying Apple again, and we're writing the latest bug report using a "sudo" nym! Keep those AirPods firmly in your ears, cadets ... do not confuse them for artificial tonsils!https…
 
Cap'n Mike's away, cadets, and you know what that means ... financial talk galore! Not really, but we do touch on Apple's amazeballs Q1, how wrong the pundits were (us included), Facebook's hissy fit, some interesting rumors, and the folly of Flash -- among other things!https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/01/24/apple-updates-magsafe-support-with-m…
 
With CES behind us, it's time to start getting back to whatever passes for normal around the ship, cadets! William Gallagher from AppleInsider joins us to talk about LG, the AirPods Max, TV+, Paramount+, Ring and Amazon, and much more! Look sharp, cadets -- the Admiral is on the bridge!https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/lg-smartphone/https://applei…
 
CES had a lot of products to flog as usual, cadets, but being on video only and in linear order, plus you had to BYOB? Not the same. We round up our best and worst and mention a few Apple-specific things, Cook talks Parler (et al), Samsung ditches included stuff while bringing out separate new stuff, and we dig into a little bit of reader mail!http…
 
We're having to kick off our first episode of 2021 with a 16-minute divergence from our usual agenda, cadets, but after that beep-riddled loserpalooza, we get right back into the things we love: Apple stuff, other tech news, new toys, and geeking out on sci-fi! Open a new page in your stardate journals, cadets: the Space Javelin is on another missi…
 
Our last episode of the year features a special surprise: our (mercifully brief) podcast karaoke debut! Of course there's some nice things in the news, but this wouldn't be the last of our podcasts for the year without shenanigans under the tree, so Mike and Charles hope for a happier, brighter 2021 for everyone -- especially our faithful cadets! S…
 
It's starting to get to be a real mixed bag as we head into the Holiday Neutral Zone, cadets, but Santa Tim is still delivering! You'd have to have been awfully good to find some new AirPods Max in your astro-stocking, hung by the holofire with care, but there's still more! We'll keep you up to date on all the lawsuits, hypocrisy, and folderol that…
 
We're back from our Turkey Day marathon, cadets, and ready to tackle the big news! Oh wait, it's mostly Black Friday sales! Oh wait, here's some teething issues with some M1 Macs and Big Sur, a possible December surprise, a bold move in the movie biz, a new show to binge, and a bit of merger mania! Secure your space headphones to your aural interfa…
 
As promised, cadets, we've got new Apple gear for Mike to play with and he's got some thoughts! All this and big developer news, a rare two Steves artifact, and much more! Next week we celebrate Thanksgiving, but today we feast on TECH NEWS! Nomnomnomnomnom!https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/11/18/spending-time-with-homepod-mini-and-why-were-alre…
 
The ship is hurtling headlong into the holiday buying season, cadets, and Mike's already started getting his presents -- beginning with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and more to come next week! There's also a lot of new M1 chip benchmarks, third-party apps, and caveats to take into account, along with some new moves by other companies, and Disney+ shatter…
 
Just like Lord of the Rings, cadets, this trilogy of special events is concluded with the last piece of the puzzle: not one, not two, but THREE new Apple Silicon Macs up for pre-order now and shipping soon, plus the release of macOS Big Sur on Thursday! Mike and Charles sum up the highs and lows of jumping on first-gen hardware, and tease the pundi…
 
Apple has proven once again that record-breaking quarters are possible even without a new iPhone in the mix, but wait! Apple's got yet another Special Event (and our subsequent Special Report) in the wings! the HomePod mini is proving to be a big hit, streaming game services are coming to iOS in droves (maybe including Fortnite), and Walmart cries …
 
Mike's away, cadets, but we welcome an all-new guest to the command deck -- Apple expert Aitan Roubini of MacZen.ca -- as we go over new discoveries about the iPhone 12, streaming gaming services, a fix for the Apple Watch Series 3, Charlie Brown, Samsung, and a surprising amount of stories from Canada! Stay tuned, cadets, and get ready to ... take…
 
Vive la révolution, cadets! Cap'ns Mike and Charles fly the skull and crossbones on the FCC, the DOJ, the US carriers, Samsung, Mark Zuckerberg, Foxconn, and everyone who said dumb things when emotions are running high. November spawns a monster (quarter) with the strong possibility of yet another Apple event, the first Apple Silicon Mac is looming…
 
Apple brought out the very expected iPhone 12 family, the somewhat unexpected (at least by us) HomePod mini (get three, they're smol!), and a few new features and promises for "later this year" that bear lots of future investigation, cadets! In the meantime, co-Cap'ns Mike and Charles give you the lowdown on what's new and what to do about it ... i…
 
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, cadets! We'll have another special report on the Apple Event arriving early Wednesday! Get comfy and strap in, cadets -- it's double-duty week for the Space Javelin crew!https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/10/06/apples-hi-speed-iphone-12-event-is-on-october-13https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/10/09/apple-now-using-r…
 
It's been a wild week back on planet earth as well as out here in the newsphere, cadets, with loads of rumors, possible leaks, and sneak peeks for the geeks! While Mike is outside the ship adjusting the solar panels, Alan Perry stops by to help go over all the interesting, weird, new, and possibly disturbing tech news that's fit to post! We fixed u…
 
The ByteDance/TikTok/WeChat maelstrom continues, cadets, but with some new folds in the (waste of) space/time continuum! There's also some speculation on iPhone 12, mini-LEDs, braided cables, a path forward for streaming game servces, and the future -- if there is one -- for Quibi. All this and Microsoft news and mischief galore, so break out your …
 
Congrats, cadets, 200 missions accomplished! That's a whole lot of brave new (tech) worlds, and we couldn't have done it without you! In addition to the usual news and shenanigans, we also dig into the archive for some remarkably on-target (or wildly wrong) predictions from us ... and a report card on which Apple Event psychics actually hit the mar…
 
The first half of what would have otherwise been an unwieldy reveal-fest is behind us, cadets, and there's enough there to brief you on that co-Capn's Mike and Charles enlisted special guest Peter Cohen to help us break down the new Apple Watch family, the updated iPads, and the new service and bundle options! We share some unannounced info about t…
 
It's gonna be a week full of Space Javelin, cadets! Mike, Charles, and holographic Alan (preserved from episode 198) cover a ton of recent news, and if that weren't enough ... a special report is coming for your Wednesday morning all about Apple's "Time Flies!" Brace yourselves, cadets -- this could be the weirdest spinoff of "Doctor Who" yet!https…
 
Surprise Labor/Labour Day Weekend episode, cadets! We thought things would quiet down a bit for the holiday, but to borrow some CB slang, "negatory, good buddies!" A big space scow of lawsuits and mischief pulled up right along Rocket #9, so Mike wisely booked it to the holodeck, leaving Cap'n Charles and his special guest -- CFAX 1070 Tech Talk ho…
 
The theory that we have slipped into an alternate dimensions is the only explanation our Science Officer can come up with to explain this bizarro world of weird news, cadets. We've got court dates, bad actors, failing factories, social network revolts, idiots with self-driving cars, and the sure sign of a pocket universe ... computer store chains r…
 
The manufactured crisis of Epic proportions continues, cadets, with Fortnite-equipped iPhones selling for thousands on Ebay (with a treasure trove of the previous owner's data thrown in free!), while TikTok finds another buyer, WeChat gets a reprieve, Lightroom loses photos, more lawsuits (of course) and iPhone silly season is just around the corne…
 
Kanye loses time, TikTok gets some extra, Koss stirred a hornet's nest, Apple angers publishers, bundle rumors are in the air, the Apple-Google COVID-19 API gets adopted, and there's a new set of Hot Wheels ... for your Mac Pro! All this and much weirdness with special guest William Gallagher -- so dress uniforms all round, cadets, we gotta class t…
 
It's BLEEPAPALOOZA on the good ship Space Javelin this week, cadets, as special guest Peter Cohen and Cap'n Mike double team to bleach the last bones of the Q3 financials, trash talk the TikTok shock, and (in the words of clickbait headlines) EVISCERATE Apple's nonsensical response to the blocking of streaming game services like xCloud and Stadia! …
 
Bleepity-bleep, cadets! Cap'n Mike had to cover both Apple's fiscal Q3 financial results and the Big Tech congressional hearing, so the ol' beep button got a bleep of a workout, as you might imagine! There was a lot of other tech news, from Facebook crying foul to a new deal for movies, Emmy nominations for TV+, an Intel shakeout, and our review of…
 
There wasn't a great deal of news this week, cadets, but what there was ... was mostly bad! Instacart, Twitter, AT&T, Verizon, Apple, Intel, Microsoft, and YouTube are all under the scope of scrutiny -- plus your old flip and early smartphones are headed to forced obsolescence land, and Bitcoin scammers are abusing Uncle Woz! Luckily there's a few …
 
The mothership has scored a surprise rout over the forces of taxes, cadets, so we've reopened the Astro Arcade on deck six! We'll also be watching Tom Hanks in the Viewing Dome, listening to our audio news updates, and anxiously checking our recent Bitcoin investment ... uh oh ... er, half rations for a while, gang: our credit balance is gonna need…
 
We're back, cadets, and we hope you missed us! Actually you can carry on missing Co-Cap'n Mike, as nobody's had the heart to jump into the Holo-sphere and let him know his shore leave is up! Luckily, William Gallagher of AppleInsider.com dropped by to help plow through two weeks worth of mischief and balderdash -- so get your astro-shovels out, cad…
 
The big keynote we covered last week had a lot of big changes, cadets, but the devil is in the details ... so Cap'ns Mike and Charles go spelunking through the sessions to dig out little nuggets of future gold (or fool's gold) ahead of the public betas and our annual Canada Day/July 4th week holiday! We'll be back on July 13th, so have a blast and …
 
Well, we made you wait an extra day, cadets, but the Mothership's second-biggest event of the year happened on Monday, and there was so much beyond the big announcements to talk about that not only did we have to pull in a guest commentator, but we ended up with a bumper edition of your trusty space-podcast! Mike and Charles start off with the lowd…
 
We swear, the mentality of some people get us down sometimes, cadets, but silly WWDC season is upon us, and thus we must phaser our way through leaks and predictions, a new Sonos spat, beetle-brained analysts, nefarious story-stealers, and pundits and miner49ers alike all up in ARM(s) about next week. All this and some homework, cadets, so get your…
 
Welcome to a weird episode -- even by our standards, cadets! Cap'n Mike had to deal with some lower-deck nonsense, leaving Cap'n Charles to handle the second half of the show alone! That said, they bring you (as usual) all the news you need to know from the world of tech ... with few tips on how to deal with planet Earth these days. Topics include …
 
This week is action packed with bug squashing, legal fails, summer colors, jailbreaks, stores re-opening (with a twist), another streaming service, some hot gear, some cool Apple TV+ news, and a cadet's question answered by special guest brain William Gallagher! Surf's up, cadets, but keep an eye out for SpaceX's Falcon 9 -- we don't want them coll…
 
Per listener request, we're going to try to include links to some of the news we cover to provide for further reading -- since we've all got more time off-duty than we did before! Get comfy, cadets ... we cram more stories per (not quite) hour than an Evelyn Wood Speed-Reading Class!https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/05/18/apple-reopening-25-us-a…
