This week on Rocket we're eating dessert first, and talking about Jeffrey Toobin's Zoom scandal. Then, it's the first batch of iPhone reviews! Featuring Simone actually, maybe, sort of, buying a new phone on the show. Finally, the DOJ is actually pursuing an antitrust suit against Google. What will come of it?
Simone abandoned us this week, so Christina and Bri are joined by Rene Ritchie, Apple analyst/YouTuber-extraordinaire to break down the Apple iPhone 12 event. Also, a favorite character from Rocket’s past gets some news.
Apple is on the verge of another media event, and the PS5 has been torn down. Then, the ultimate example of technology lock-in.
To celebrate episode 300 we bring on some special guests from the Relay FM family, and taste test Brach's god-awful Thanksgiving Dinner candy corn.
Xbox pre-orders opened up this week… did they go better than the pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 did? NO! Then, it's what's happening with TikTok in the exact moment we recorded this episode, which will not doubt have changed completely by the time you listen to it. Oh, and Microsoft acquired Bethesda. Cool!
In a super-size show, we cover every big announcement from the last week and a half: PlayStation 5 details, an Apple Event (no new phones yet though), the TikTok deal with Oracle and the Nvidia deal with Arm. Phew. Tune in for everything, and some things you never asked for!!
Today on Rocket, we update you on the latest episode of our favorite soap opera, Apple Vs Epic, and then on a bunch of video game stuff! The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are coming out soon(ish), and Nintendo has loads of plans to celebrate Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary.
Folding phones are back for round two: this time it's Samsung's Z Fold 2 and Microsoft's Surface Duo. Then, Mike Piontek, the creator of the app Deliveries, pops in to talk about why they went with a subscription model.
The next episode of our favorite soap opera, Epic vs. Apple, is HERE! Followed by a look back at TikTok's momentous second year and latest lawsuit against the U.S. government.
The dramatic saga of Epic vs. Apple continues, with all the updates since our emergency episode last week and a Hefty discussion of the importance of Unreal Engine. Then, author Lauren Beukes joins us to discuss her latest book, Afterland.
