What a busy week! We return with another VIP Roundtable podcast, with me as your host alongside Hugo, Nelson, and Justin. This year’s WWDC event was a large one, as it is where Apple reveals to us its mysteries at their core. OK, maybe not quite, but we did gain a nice glimpse into what is coming down the pipe especially in terms of software. Join us as we talk about Mac OS 10.11 and how mature the platform might be, iOS 9 and its features or surprises, along with the Apple Watch which is becoming so much more, quicker than people have thought. The big push for Apple this year dealt with making iOS more aware of your routine and habits, while keeping your privacy intact. Can they pull it off? Will the new Apple Music be good enough to gain interest for people? We also talk about a new assistant on the block, which could seriously Hound both Apple and Google and their artificial intelligent creations.
Greg, Leo and Cory welcome a new crew member, Dan Mathis to the show to discuss what’s new and up-coming with the world of Google and the latest from Google IO.

In this first Cool Blind Tech podcast of mine, I give you a short review of the new Williams Legato Digital Piano. I do my best to explain the button layout and functions, and at the end there is a demonstration of the main piano instrument that I just sort of came up with on the spot. Enjoy, and feel free to send me any feedback. My email address is email@example.com
In this tag team review of Uber for iOS, Hugo demonstrates his personal experience with the Uber services and finds out you don’t always get what you pay for.
After having the Apple Watch for one month, I can truthfully say that as Apple wishes, “It just works.” Make no mistake, the Apple Watch is no iPhone, and it does have a lot to improve on, but overall, the potential for this device is exceptional. What it currently does, it does well. Apple’s first ever Smartwatch is phenomenal in the context of a regular day while having great hardware and design that aren’t currently matched by any other competitor on the market, and as a result, the use of this device is incredible.
Let’s talk about rooting Android devices. While previously we have discussed flashing a Nexus back to factory settings for tinkerers out there, we have not yet touched upon how most Galaxy devices are rooted. This podcast is applicable to non-newer Samsung’s, anything S5 and below. For most of Samsung’s flagships, the guide applies, although some might have different ways to boot into recovery or boot loader mode. This was tested personally to work on Galaxy S4 and S5 models, but the procedure is the same for Galaxy Note 3/4 as well.
