Pocketnow Weekly 113: iPhone 6, Apple Watch, Moto X, & Moto 360 Editorial Roundtable

Sat Sep 13 2014 (02:11:02)

We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with you.

Look how generous that face is.

So rather than restoring the podcast to its normal format, as was supposed to happen this week, we're instead rolling special-edition style one more time. We'll kick things off with a device-centric Editorial Roundtable covering the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple iWatch (and the disastrous launch that had some of us staying up till sunrise trying to place our order). Then Stephen Schenck will bring us the news in the unflappable style we've come to know and love, before we take your questions and comments in a Moto-centric Gadgets in Hand.

If that's the kind of thing that toggles your Siri, then the Pocketnow Weekly 113 is the show for you! Check out this week's podcast down below, and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air when we return to our normal schedule next week. See you then!

Music

It may just sound like a ringtone to you, but our transition music track ("Radiation") is a real song, from a real album, by a real artist: Ali Spagnola. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali's website here, visit her YouTube page here, and follow her on Twitter here!

See you next week!
