Tim is angry again. What else is new, right? David has a new computer! Topics include not being able to play the new Star Wars movie on a Macbook Pro, the 16GB iPhone argument continues, the FBI dropping the Apple court case, Apple blocking the music iPhone app with ads, and much more. Also, Tim and David completely forget to talk about Dawn of Justice after mentioning it at the top of the show.
