I used to have about a half-dozen extra iPhone charging cables lying around. I own about that many iOS devices. But, those were for the 30-pin ports. When the Lightning cable was introduced, my supply dropped to only two.
The podcast team is here to navigate the highs and lows of this year’s Comic-Con, from the bombastic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the reappearance of Deadpool, and the time Tilly met his hero Bill Murray and he was rude to him.
We also take a look at the Gold and Mould of the week, and pay our respects to the inimitably wonderful Satoru Iwata.

Dominion started off its second season on solid footing thanks to an action-packed premiere that showcased more of the wider world outside of Vega. For the most part, the second episode manages to keep that momentum going. One of the three main storylines isn’t up to snuff right now, but two-thirds of a great show is nothing to sneeze at.
With so much emphasis on cities and conflicts outside the familiar Vega setting, it’s really the Vega storyline itself that’s lagging behind the rest right now. There’s ample potential with the current status quo. Claire Reisen and David Whele’s war for control of the city is quickly growing more heated, paving the way for plenty of betrayal and conspiracy and all that good stuff. But something about the execution is falling flat right now. With Alex and Michael on extended vacation, Vega as a whole suddenly feels less vital to the series’ mythology.
One of the very first things that I tried when I got the iPod touch 6th generation (full review) was to jailbreak. To my surprise, both the PP jailbreak for Mac and the Windows-only TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.4 worked out of the box. This surprised me because in times past, the tools used to perform the jailbreak needed to be updated to support new devices.
With the iPod touch 6th generation, this is not so; you can jailbreak immediately. In this post, I’ll show you how easy it is to jailbreak your iPod touch 6 using the latest version of TaiG…. Read the rest of this post here
The Sharknado films have a reputation for being over-the-top, and it’s possible they’ll only get crazier as time goes on.
Speaking with IGN during Comic-Con 2015, Sharknado 3 director Anthony C. Ferrante discussed the future of the campy SyFy cult hits. According to Ferrante, Sharknado’s future lies in paying homage to the films that came before.
“The thing is, what do we do by putting the Sharknado universe in another genre?” he asked. “Not parody, but almost homage. Like, in
, we do White House Down with sharks.
“So, sharks are
terrorists. They don’t have guns, but it’s that kind of thing. So, you have Finn, and a gun-toting Marc Cuban as our president taking down sharks that are taking over the White House. So, as long as we can kind of do different things like that, it makes it exciting.”
Ever since we posted our review of the 6th generation iPod touch, people have been asking me about the three new wallpapers that come included with the device. The new wallpapers are color-specific wallpaper for the new Gold, Blue, and Pink iPod touch 6th-gen units. In this post, we provide you with a link to download all three of the new wallpapers….

Vacation and Horrible Bosses screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein are apparently scripting Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man reboot.
Deadline reports that while Daley and Goldstein were contenders to helm Spider-Man, they are now set up to script the superhero flick. The writing pair — who also penned The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 — are making their directorial debut with the Vacation reboot.
In the last year or so, Amy Schumer has blown up in popularity thanks to her sketch comedy series on Comedy Central. It’s no surprise that the comedienne landed her own movie, which she wrote herself and Judd Apatow directed. But while Schumer’s TV show is known for its pointed, raunchy sense of humor, her movie Trainwreck, while definitely funny, doesn’t shake up the romantic comedy formula as much as it thinks it does. Still, there’s plenty to enjoy here thanks to Schumer’s winning performance, as well as a talented ensemble cast.
In Trainwreck, Schumer plays Amy, a magazine writer who lives by a simple credo: Monogamy isn’t realistic. And for awhile that goes pretty well for her, but soon she finds herself falling for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming sports doctor named Aaron Conners (played by Bill Hader). After resisting commitment all her life, Amy starts dating Aaron exclusively and begins to wonder if settling down isn’t the worst thing after all — even if it does go against everything she was raised to believe.
Context is everything in annualized sports sims. What was last year’s version like? What does the new one have? What are my other options right now? If F1 2015’s PC version were free of context, it would simply be forgettable licensed racing game that I could recommend to fans of Formula 1 racing. But it’s not. F1 2015 is the sixth installment of Codemasters’ Formula 1 series, and unfortunately it is one of their most feature-poor and PC-unfriendly releases in years.
Let’s dig into some of that context, and talk about where I’m coming from with this review of the PC version. While the series is meant for everyone from casual racing fans to gearheads, I’ve always treated the PC versions as a place to drive a serious racing sim. It gets pretty nerdy: I’ve played every version using a TrackIR head-tracking device and a force-feedback wheel.And while there have been years when Codemasters’ improvements were too marginal to justify the cost of a new game, I’ve generally loved this series.
