This week's episode is packed. Starting with the news, James and Stefan discuss all the hype around wearables, the Kindle Fire Phone reviews, Apple's financial results, Microsoft's financial results, the new Nokia Lumia 530, Foursquare's new app, Google's new look for the Play Store, Motorola's tattoos, the NVIDIA Shield, and finally the Xiaomi Mi 4.


But wait, there's more! The two also answered listener questions: Why are U.S. operators so horrible? What's OS X Yosemite all about? Will the iPhone 6 deliver on all the hype? Will we see Broadwell laptops this year? And what's the last awesome app you've discovered?
