About this Episode

This week Brian and Brad are joined by Rebecca Slatkin (@RebeccaSlatkin) and we talk about our new iPhones, the new Apple Watch, our worst jobs, the horrors of toilet iPhones, and why our moms worry when we travel.
Links and notes and more (oh my!):
  • Rebecca talks about her iPhone 7 and her experience with the Smart Battery Case
  • Spigen is selling a $10 cable that will convert AirPods into … well, EarPods.
    • The Japanese have sold Bluetooth headsets for years that have a useless wire hanging off them so you don’t look like you’re talking to yourself. For the life of me, I can’t find a link to show it.
  • Since the home button is virtual on the iPhone 7, how you reboot it is now different.
  • 10 FREE iMessage apps

    • Retro Emoji—all the classic emoticons right at your fingertips
    • Circle Pay—lets you send money to your contacts securely and without having to pay a fee. Circle works internationally, unlike Square Cash
    • Chatterbird—the Instagram of voice messaging
    • Doodle—fast and easy scheduling in your Messages. Pick your availability and send it over to your friends to see if they’re available during those days
    • GIF Keyboard
