He had a master troll of a line in this one: (paraphrased) "The Tesla's a good car, why would Broder even want to take a dig at it?" – as in Broder wouldn't have motivation to fake a negative reviews.

Details are still up in the air, but the Padre convinced his superiors the best thing for his ministry would be to move to San Francisco and become a podcaster.

To quote my ex, "is he a real priest?"

She called herself a "turd burglar" pre-show, which slightly endeared me to her.

Joanna Stern isn't of the same pedigree, but I also like her.

She was always great on "This Is My Next".

I felt weird writing that, like I was taking a backhanded shot at Joanna.

"Pedigree" is a good way to put it. I was a fan of both Molly and Nilay even before TWiT. It's Molly's fault I listen. I used to listen to Gadgettes and they had a "Good Bye to Tom Merritt" show. I liked him, so I checked out his then brand new show on TWiT.

Of late I find when Dvorak's on, I more often than not don't finish listening to it. Sometimes there's a combination of him and other guests that make me turn it off at the announcement of who's on. Sorry Dvorak... yer just not my cup of tea.

Speaking of TWiT in another thread, that was almost too good of an episode. They needed Dvorak if only to cut down on Skype lag.

No he couldn't. I'm still bitter over him stepping all over the punchline to the Groupon resignation Millan was reading that Leo set him up to do.

The Padre has become an official multi-show contributor, and is moving to SF.

Why he's the most awsome priest ever: reason 416.

He put green tape on his clerical collar so they could chroma key Adventure Time over it.

I was busy through most of the show, so I only got bits and pieces.

The only thing which jumped out at me were the repeated exchanges in this format:

Leo: Xbox One is like... A, B, and C.
Guest: It's really like P, D, and Q.
Leo: Yeah, it's like P, D, and Q.

Details are thin, but Apple has been giving Andy Ihnatko a hassle about getting press credentials for WWDC.

Reading between the lines, I'd say Leo thinks it's revenge for the Tim Cook puppet.

Leo really has soured on Apple in the last year or so hasn't he?

I don't have a problem with people giving them the business, but his criticisms come off sounding really lame. He's pulling from all of the super tired and intellectually lazy android fan talking points and making really weird sweeping judgements, like (paraphrasing) "Apple has really lost it since Steve Jobs left, they're just all over the place and directionless... just like in the 90s" without making any sort of attempt to explain what that means exactly.

The thing is, I'm sorta with him on that.

Steve would engineer it so at the end of his keynotes he could (metaphorically) stick out his arm, drop the mic, and walk off stage.

Now, for all the (accurate) accusations of the reality distortion field, even that boils down to a point made by a spiritual companion of Steve's: P.T. Barnum. He said (and I'm paraphrasing), "you can't sell a steak... what you sell is the sizzle, the smell. The thing is, after you've done that you have to actually give them a steak."

Steve could sell these things as well as he could, and distort reality as well as he could, because he really knew he had a spectacular steak. He knew it in his bones.

At best, all the steaks at WWDC were half-cooked, and it seems likely there may be a few cuts from the old dairy cow which disappeared. There wasn't anything good enough for them to ****ing own it, if you know what I'm saying.

The sole exception was all their battery/power stuff, though that's about the most boring thing you could knock it out of the park on.

"Steve" quality iOS would have Sir Jony making an unprecedented appearance at WWDC. He'd only talk for two minutes, and would start by saying he can't stand doing these sort of presentations, buuuut...

"We worked so hard on iOS 7 it kicks every arse off a cliff from Google on down. Thank you, good night"

[drops the mic]

I don't care how nervous the guy gets in front of a crowd. If he believed iOS 7 was that good, he'd get over it.

He hasn't, because it's just not.
