Apple has a long history of leaving technology behind as it moves forward into the next new thing. Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to look at Apple's relentless march forward and why that's a good thing for the company even if it upsets some customers.

They also take a look at how they're using Apple Watch after having one on their wrists for a few weeks, and talk about how Apple's smartwatch fits into their daily routines.
