The CW made good on its promise to bring shows like Supergirl, The Flash, and iZombie to Apple TV for free. The network’s Apple TV app is available now, and doesn’t require a cable or satellite subscription to watch, or need any sort of login.
Safari 10 allows you to have Flash installed, but to control which sites know it (or access it). For many users, this would be the best compromise between having flash and not installing it all. Bryan Chaffin shows you how to do it.
The LINE Corporation has done something very useful with 3D Touch, and I thought I’d tell you about it. When you’re looking at your Chats view, you can view recent chats, as shown below, without sending a read receipt. Bryan Chaffin shows you how.
Apple has a new spot out for iPhone 7 called “Balloons.” It’s a lovely spot with some beautiful imagery. While the piece is very light on product imagery, the balloons are meant to be a metaphor about iMessage bringing people together. The tag line at the end of the spot is “The all-new iPhone 7, with expressive messages. Practically magic.” Like I said, I think it’s beautiful. I’d be curious to know what you think.
It’s one thing to make sober, informed predictions about what Apple may announce next. But, this time, John just wants to have fun and provide his fantasy wish list for an Apple event in October. What would have John giggling with delight? Read on to find out.
macOS Sierra is loaded with cool new features, but sometimes it’s the little things that make your life easier, like not needing to remember to empty your Mac’s trash. You can set the Trash to auto-delete after 30 days, and it’s easy to do. Read on to learn how.
Word on the street says new Retina MacBook Pro models are coming in October, and TMO’s sources say they’ll be announced on the 11th. Dave Hamilton and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to talk about John’s wish list for new Apple products, and Jeff disagrees with John’s take on Apple TV.

iPhone and iPad game controllers aren’t exactly news, unless they’re awesomely retro—like the AP40 from 8Bitdo. Their game controller has a classic NES look with a dash of Apple II thrown in, sports Apple’s iconic rainbow stripes, and the “AP40” name is a hat tip to Apple’s 40th anniversary. It’s a Bluetooth game controller you can use with iOS and Android devices, as well as the Mac, and it comes with a green Apple leaf plug for the USB charger port. As if that isn’t enough, it comes bundled with Apple II-shaped stand to hold the charger, your iPhone, or iPad. The AP40 is a Kickstarter project that’s already nearing its minimum funding level. Funding at the US$49 level gets you the AP40, and at $69 you get the controller and retro stand, too.
We’ve had our iPhone 7s for a week and a half, and Bryan and Jeff talk about life without the headphone jack. They also discuss the differences between Apple Watch (Series 0) and the new Apple Watch Series 2. They close out the show talking about Siri on the Mac, using it, and the lack of “Hey Siri” support. Plus, Bryan is punchy from a lack of sleep, so silliness runs rampant.
The NewerTechnology NuGuard KX case for iPhone 7 or 7 Plus features a hard outer shell integrated with a soft, energy absorbing inner shell. Despite that, it’s easy to get on and off and the volume and sleep/wake buttons are relatively easy to press through. It comes in three colors, and a plastic screen protector is included. This is a superb iPhone case.
The good folks at MyMac were kind enough to put my through one of their Spotlight interviews. They asked me 7 questions and I gave them mostly meandering, far-flung answers that explored life, the universe, and everything. There’s some what-makes-Bryan-tick stuff in it. If you’re into that sort of thing. I don’t advise it. Thanks to Tim Robertson and MyMac for putting me in the Spotlight!
