This week: the pros and cons of Apple’s new 4K and 5K iMacs. Plus: the new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2—we’ve got our grubby hands on Apple’s new peripherals and we’re ready to share what we like (and what we don’t).
And just when you thought we were wrapping it up, we say hale na', let’s talk about apps! We’ll pitch you some our current favorites.
And stay tuned for CultCast 2nd Hour with guest Blake J. Harris, author of Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation, to be regaled with the story of the 90s video game war that pitted newcomer, Sega of America, against Nintendo, an unstoppable force and maker Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt, and the beloved Nintendo Entertainment System. 2nd Hour starts at 1:08:05!
