Preston asks on Twitter: Have you guys considered a segment or new podcast where you can cover interesting Apple TV+ content with spoilers? Maybe it could be monthly or just when appropriate. Love the new show!

David emails us and says: Hey Sebastien and Cody. Firstly, I really like the new name and artwork. Although with my visual impairment I can’t appreciate the full detail of the artwork, I can see enough to say I like it! I have a question. Have either of you ever given serious thought to switching to Android? I’ve been using iPhones since the 3GS in 2009/2010, and have always loved them. I love my 12 Mini too (I did quickly get used to the size!). However just for the fun of it, and to try something different, I’ve been genuinely thinking about giving Android a shot for a year, and wondered if you’ve ever felt the same temptation for some variety? On the other hand it seems like a hassle; all of my photos are in iCloud photo library, I have an Apple Watch, AirPods etc etc… Keep up the great work, I’ll keep listening no matter what you decide to do! Cheers. Dave.
