    SJ275: Liberty Hall! Apple #1 in sales worldwide, Alexa sells out, Dr. Dre self-owns, & much more!

    What a long strange trip it has been ... but at long last, the good ship Space Javelin has been recalled back to base, at least for a while. We salute all those who sailed her alongside us over these (total of) seven years and three months and 470 episodes all told. We'll be back for a special report in June for the big WWDC reveals, but until then ... thanks, cadets.

    Special guest Alan Perry and Charles return with even more news and stories (including a horrifying scam attempt that was thankfully thwarted right here in Victoria BC) we had to cut for time from Monday's episode -- just to tide you over the weekend until Monday's new show!
