iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro

Apple just launched the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and Apple Watch Series 5 - but the company isn’t done with 2019 releases! We talk about the upcoming Pro device event which should be taking place in October where we will see the debut of a newly-redesigned MacBook Pro, faster iPad Pros with a triple-camera system, and complete details on the Mac Pro. We discuss phone carriers, which ones we both use, and who we are thinking of switching to. Finally, we also give our thoughts on the best features of iOS 13, and who should upgrade to the iPhone 11 vs who should get the iPhone 11 Pro.

Hands on with iPhone 11 & iPhone 11 Pro

In this episode, we go over all the big announcements from Apple’s iPhone 11 launch event. Andru was in Cupertino for the event and gives his hands-on impressions of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, and we discuss the meaning of the “Pro” naming scheme for the iPhone and tech products in general.

There’s also a new Apple Watch Series 5 (finally sporting an always-on display!) and a couple of new finishes, and Apple has seemingly set up Apple TV+ to become the number one streaming video service in the world in the next 12 months - we show you the math!

Molekule air purifier review

A lot of smart home tech that we see these days aims to reinvent common appliances in a way that takes advantage of all the sensors and connectivity that we have at our disposal. Enter Molekule, a smart device that not only looks to improve your indoor air quality, but your quality of life as well.

You know I love smart home tech, and I’ve always said that while I like tech that’s cool, I also really love seeing when a company can use tech to truly improve quality of life - that’s why I’m such a big fan of the Apple Watch health features for example. The Molekule air purifier uses tech in much the same way - science is used to improve the common air purifier, resulting in a system that destroys particles at the molecular level.

Best Apple One More Thing Moments

In this episode we take a look at the entire history of Apple’s “One More Thing” announcements, starting from the first one in 1999 all the way to the latest in 2017. Which ones were worthy of being a “One More Thing,” and which were a bust? We give you our opinion!

We also give our predictions for what the “One More Thing” might be at next week’s Apple Event. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is back, and we talk about how Samsung addressed all the issues. Finally, we talk about the new Porsche Taycan, Andru's Tesla Model 3, and Jon’s next car!

iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

On this week's Geared Up, Apple's fall iPhone 11 announcement is just a few weeks away, and we talk about what our dream features for the device would be - what would make the perfect iPhone 11?

We answer tons of listener Q&A - and the new Geared Up co-host is revealed!

Samsung Galaxy Note 10

On this week's Geared Up, I go over my Samsung Galaxy Note 10 review impressions after spending a week with the device. I also talk with Todd Bishop about wanting to switch away from the iPhone after 10 years to give Samsung's new flagship Galaxy Note 10+ a shot. Which features are luring him away from iOS and towards Samsung and Android? We also talk about the latest iPhone 11 & iPhone Pro rumors and what to expect from Apple's next smartphone release, scheduled to be announced on September 10th!

The Death of the Xbox

On this week's Geared Up, we talk about the two new Nintendo Switch consoles that were announced this past week - the Nintendo Switch Lite and the Nintendo Switch with refreshed battery. In the case of the Switch Lite, we are getting a new handheld-only portable console with a cheaper price and some caveats. Over on the standard Switch front, we were expecting a pro version of the Switch as well, but instead got the same hardware with increased battery life.

Apple has significantly changed its laptop computer lineup with the release of a cheaper MacBook Air and the addition of premium features on the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro while simultaneously killing the 12-inch MacBook and the older entry-level MacBook Air. We go over why this actually provides clarity for anyone looking to buy an Apple laptop.

Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note 10 at an event on August 7th at the Barclays Center, and rumors and dropping left and right about the new flagship devices in the weeks leading up to the reveal. The latest focuses on a very unique feature for the Note 10 battery that may make charging anxiety a thing of the past!

The Death of the Xbox

On this week's Geared Up, we talk about the upcoming Amazon Prime Day, celebrating Amazon's 25th anniversary. I bring you my tips on finding the best Prime Day deals, while naming a couple of my favorite Prime Day launch deals (which you can find right now - the Anker PowerPort Atom III and the Jabra Elite 85h headphones!) This year Amazon is extending Prime Day to be a two-day shopping event, which means competing retailers are also preparing their own deals to steal away some attention.

High-quality video game streaming is nearly here, with early launches of both Microsoft Project xCloud (an Xbox streaming service,) and Google Stadia both taking place in the fall of 2019. A listener asked if the fact that people will be able to stream their games to any device - from web browser, to smartphone to smart TV and more - spells the end of the Xbox and PlayStation dedicated video game consoles as we know them. I weigh in with my thoughts, along with my impressions of using Project xCloud (which you can see in the video embedded below!)

Samsung sent out invites for its Galaxy Unpacked event, which takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on August 7th. This will be where the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will make its debut, and we should likely hear news of updated launch plans for the Samsung Galaxy Fold as well. I discuss the expected features and specs for the new Samsung flagship smartphone.

Finally, I also talk about Jony Ive leaving Apple and what his departure means for the future of the company as many wonder if the iconic designs that Apple is known for will suffer as a result.
