This week, Dan and Merlin dive into the benefits (and fun) of a NAS project. Also, Merlin goes off about the horror show of letting old people determine the future. Also, also, hey, kung fu movies!
447: Mating for Life
It's Infrastructure Week! Dan and Merlin start with California's power crisis and end up pivoting to phones, cable TV, and, of course, Apple.
What happens when a resource we think of as a solved part of our infrastructure suddenly isn't so solved?
And, what would Apple look like if it treated all of its services as seriously as it once treated the Mac?
Also: lizard updates, but please don't Google "hornworms."
446: Charm Offensive
This week, Dan and Merlin talk about living in a world of hardware choices.
How do you decide which device is best suited to a given task? Which ones do you find yourself preferring to use because they're friction-free—or just fun?
And, in what ways do our previous behaviors, habits, and expectations end up unconsciously coloring our future decisions?

This week, Dan and Merlin talk about Apple's OS rollouts, changes in Apple retail, and week two with the new Apple Watch.
444: Seasoned Horologist
