This week's episode takes place as Moltz is waiting for delivery of his Apple Watch. While he waits, he might benefit from learning some tips about the Apple Watch (http://www.imore.com/28-apple-watch-tips-and-tricks-you-should-know).
We predict that sleeve cut-outs for smartwatches will be a future trend, like double ties (http://news.greatblogabout.org/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/windowslivewriterbacktothefuturecontinue.part2-101a8513.jpg).
Dan and Lex don't notice serious battery drain on their iPhones when paired with the Watch. (http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/27/apple-watch-battery-issues-solutions/) Since getting his after this episode, Moltz hasn't either.
The Watch is definitely better than its cheap Android knock-off (https://instagram.com/p/2EUvl4zFwY/).
No one will be seated during the thrilling section where Dan and Lex tell us which Watch faces they're using (http://www.apple.com/watch/timekeeping/).
If you're interested in using traditional watch bands with the Watch, you might be interested in Click (https://www.get-click.com), an adapter for that purpose.
Apple has new ads, one with an interesting moment (http://www.apple.com/watch/films/).
Switching gears, Microsoft has announced a new set of tools for Cocoa and Android developers (http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/29/8511439/microsoft-windows-10-android-ios-apps-bridges) plus an update to hololens (http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/30/8525417/microsoft-hololens-headset-up-close).
Our thanks this week to Aspiration (http://aspiration.com/rebound), a different kind of financial firm. Their idea is pretty simple – take everything you don’t like about investing, and do the opposite. Traditional Wall Street firms work for mostly millionaires. At Aspiration, their investments investment strategies are built for the middle class. Signing up takes as little as $500 and five minutes of your time. You choose the fee you pay them – even if that is zero. They don’t make a cent other than what you decide they deserve. And Aspiration is the most charitable financial firm in America. Check them out and sign up at Aspiration.com/rebound.
