    SJ Special Report - WWDC June 2022

    We're back from our tour of the multiverse of madness, and ready to head out to the metaverses of mediocrity, but before all that -- a quick stop at Club Dub Dub to check out the latest and greatest with special guest, Kyle Wilson of BusinessInsider!

    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.

    Space Javelin Special: WWDC week update

    Because of the holiday weekend, there will be no regular episode this week, but stay tuned -- Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference is right around the corner, and Mike and Charles will have a WWDC preview as part of Episode 11 (arriving June 5), as well as a special episode on June 7 covering the Monday announcements from the WWDC keynote.

    Space Javelin Special: New website update #2

    Space Javelin Special: New website update #2

    A short but important update on the progress of our new Space Javelin website. We decided to add an upstairs bathroom and a space patio, so that's pushed us back a bit longer than we intended, but we are still here and, we hope, so are you. We wanted to keep you in the loop as we work to complete this major refit, and we're sorry for the delay -- but we have a special treat coming before the end of the month to tide you over. Stay tuned, cadets!

Love space javelin

Charles and Mike do a great job of reviewing the weekly tech news and keeping it funny.

Pbrutto ,

Fun show

Very informative like the AppleInsider Podcast, with delightfully raunchy verbiage to boot! I like the alternative take on the traditional podcast, keeps its very fun without being short on the details. Makes the start of my week very fun!
