Episode 16: The Bird is the Word

 

Sam and Donovan are back after being off for 4 weeks.  Sam discusses his COVID-19 diagnosis; he’s out of the woods and back at work.  Donovan talks about his camera he placed at his inherited home 35 miles away and how a bird has decided it’s a great new perch.

On the docket for this show:  the Apple App store made a ton of money because of COVID-19, Apple loves to tout how they recycle, but one partner decided it was easier to make some additional money, G Suite is now Google Workspace (Donovan jokes about the number of name changes Google makes along with the number of services it starts and then kills), a long discussion about Apple’s latest iPhone, the iPhone 12; the military using Twitch as a recruitment tool, Netflix no longer offers a 30 day trial, Quibi is dead, and Sam brings out the weird file where profanity filters go nuts.
