Joseph and I are back after a long overdue retirement stint to bring you the latest and greatest in media streaming devices. None other than the Apple TV 4. Caught in a crowded onslaught of competing devices out in the market, the Apple TV features a completely redesigned touch-based Siri remote and the new tvOS that introduces Apple’s first major step towards a future in which our televisions are powered by apps. How does this new update stack based on our early preview? Will the remote survive a tragic 2-foot drop? That and more in this episode of the PlaceboCast.
As always, thanks for listening.
