Chaos Agents & Happy Traps
Another beautiful iPhone, another iFixit Teardown. Joining us to talk a little bit about the preparation for the teardown of the iPhone 8s, the new Apple Watch, and the new Apple TV is Kelsea Weber from iFixit (a sponsor of TWiT). We talk about how and why they do tear-downs and how sometimes there will be blood.
Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and more have been filling the news for weeks. It's hard to sit back in our comfortable living rooms reading tweets and wondering what we can do about it. But it's also pretty easy to get fooled by scams when we want to help. Brooke Binkowski, managing editor of Snopes.com, joins us to help.
Tomorrow my iPhone 8 arrives and just in time Geoffrey Fowler, tech columnist from The Wall Street Journal, says I shouldn't have ordered it. He writes that with so many iPhone choices this fall, the iPhone 8 is the best model...to avoid. Why, Geoffrey, Why?
Plus, what is Google buying from HTC and what are they going to do with it?
