  1. So I should sacrifice 4 minutes to watch and listen to your irritating voice condescendingly rehash 1 hour of your wasted time for something that was summed up 2 months ago in a Verge article… Please. Next…

  2. I really enjoyed this summary video, thanks Jon.
    You really should consider making a regular tech news show, I think you got something here!!
    PS: NINTH and there is nothing Kurt can do about it.

  3. I wish Apple could've made the design slightly different for the iPhone SE so that it could stand out from the iPhone 5 & 5S. But the iPhone 5's design is my favorite so can't really complain. Though, I really wish the bezels are smaller. The iPhone SE is definitely an option (not my top option) as my next smartphone (definitely paying extra for 64GB). The lack of 3D Touch, was extremely disappointing, but I think I can live with it.

    I was expecting the 9.7" iPad Pro to have a different name, like iPad Air 3 or iPad Pro Mini.
