The new narrator just rambles with no understanding of the issue. Just listened to her say Apple should bring back battery status for batteries they don’t make. Why doesn’t Sony have to explain why Xbox controllers don’t work with ps4?

Back awesome again

Lory Gil and Mikah Sargent are the stars of the show this week with a variety of different tech stories. First, Instagram is making it possible to share your stories with only your closest friends. They've also improved the accessibility of the platform by allowing users to provide text descriptions of the images they post. This is similar to a feature Twitter has previously implemented to benefit the visually impaired.

There's huge news in the re-kindled (pun not intended) relationship between Amazon and Apple. Available later this December, Echo devices will support Apple Music.

In less happy news, Marriott says records from 500 million Starwood guests were stolen in a massive data breach. The extent of the information leaked in the breach is still being determined.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is giving the keynote address at the Anti-Defamation League's anti-Semitism and anti-hate summit in New York on December 3rd.

Finally, Mikah and Lory share their gadget picks of the week! Come on in, it's getting cold outside!

Serenity Caldwell, Lory Gil, and Mikah Sargent begin this week's show by chatting about video editing on iPad. Serenity says it feels so good to work in a more tactile way with footage, but the tools can be buggy and aren't as advanced as they could be. The crew also discuss a jailbreak for Nintendo Switch, as well as Nintendo's new Labo project kits.

In addition, SmugMug has purchased Flickr from Yahoo. Longtime users hope this will breathe life into the photo sharing platform. Lory has been checking out Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, a role-playing game set in the magical world of our favorite school-age wizards. The game relies on a free-to-play model with in-app purchases. The jury is still out on how much enjoyment you can get from it before raiding your account at Gringotts. All that, and a lot more.
