Warning: this episode contains mild coarse language.

Jesse Wilson and I break down all of 2015's news and developments by doling out awards to the tech space's newsworthy people, products and companies.

But some of the awards include:

  • Haters gonna hate hate hate of the year…
  • Lipstick on a pig of the year…
  • Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to what you just said, and may God have mercy on your soul of the year…

Also, the post-show sees an Internet first, with two douchebags discussing Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Supreme iOS/Mac engineer and Apple aficionado Ben Sandofsky joins me to break down Apple's September 2015 event. We dig into all the details of the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV announcements, with detailed discussion on why the iPad Pro was even necessary, the Internet's reaction to the Apple Pencil, the types of games we may and may not see on Apple TV, our fears for 3D Touch and more.

We also give our initial impressions of what was the most unexpected and perhaps bigggest announcement, that of the iPhone Upgrade Program, as well as discussing iCloud's stingy data caps, the 16GB base model iPhone and whether Apple's vastly increased product count and increasinly long keynotes are a worrying sign for the company.

To close out the show, Ben gives some insight into his time as a technical advisor for HBO's Silicon Valley series.
