MoviePass: Back in the News
It’s another WWDC with Rocket. We’re chatting about the coffers announcements from Apple’s keynote, and giving yet another dramatic update on MoviePass. What could possibly have happened now?!
Aunt Christina is having baby-time, but she's still here because we absolutely can't talk about GPUs and Stack Overflow without her! Nvidia has released an updated 3080, the RTX 3080 Ti. But it's $500 more than last year's card? What is HAPPENING?
Christina is at Microsoft Build this week, but what's this?? HOOFBEATS ON THE HORIZON? BRIANNA WU IS RETURNED FROM FLORIDA and she's SO ready to talk about the remastered Mass Effect trilogy.
Apple is Killing Games
Christina and Simone are mourning Christina's Dogecoin dreams. But wait, what's this?? Apple is doing one good thing and two weird ones!? Unprecedented behavior from our problematic fave. Find out what's up on Rocket!
Apple vs. Epic: Puritanical Edition
This week Simone and Christina are interrogating Apple vs. Epic! Would you download an unspeakable game… to your phone?? Would you?? We'll answer that and more as we examine Apple's puritanical behavior in the courtroom.
Super entertaining. I do warn that they can get really deep into tech and legislative jargon but TBH the exposure is needed. I also do warn they can get fairly political but some tech conversations are meant to be political so *shrug*.
Very simple review….love it. Very entertaining and informative!
Rocket is a necessary part of a well-balanced geek podcast diet
As a longer time listener to Accidental Tech Podcast (ATP) and Connected, I found Rocket to be a real revelation. While covering many of the same topics as the other two, Rocket really does sometimes have a very different take, and also has a very different presentation style. Outstanding ad reads. You really should give it a try. This review is terminated!
