‘Gold-Plated USB Cables’

Fresh off the presses: a brand-new episode of my podcast, The Talk Show, featuring very special guest Marco Arment. Topics include Jeff Bezos’s purchase of The Washington Post, working environments for programmers and web workers, how one person’s “disruption” is another’s “predatory pricing”, in-app game purchases as the modern equivalent of coin-op arcade games, and why the hell anyone would step foot in a Best Buy nowadays.

Brought to you by three excellent sponsors:

Pixate: Dynamically style your native mobile apps with CSS — for free.

Ting: A no-BS mobile service that makes sense.
