    You Chose Poorly S03E03 - A Few Inches Always Matters

    Mikey and Sawyer discuss the middle device between a phone and a computer, which is almost always an iPad. They review Mikey's iPad Mini and figure out exactly the one thing the iPad does best. Topics include: why the iPad didn't eat the computer, why it might eat the phone, and why the Surface Duo is so attractive as a concept, but not as it currently exists.
