Sep 21, 2016 | Podcast episode, Podketeers

In this episode: In this episode we briefly talk about the new iPhone 7, Samsung's Note 7 has a bit of a problem, fried Twinkies, new food offerings for Tower of Terror's Final Check-out, and a new trailer for Moana is released!

Apple recently announced that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were on their way. The last few years Apple has been known to play catch-up with other companies making innovations and Apple swooping in later and “making it better”. So why is the iPhone 7 creating such a stir? The headphone jack is gone. Apple made a concentrated effort to make a lot of people angry move technology forward. Although the removal of the jack allowed Apple to add a new barometric device, they’re pushing it along the lines of “it’s the future, and we’re going to mold it”. Apple will be including an adapter to plug in regular earphones via the lightning connector which will run about $10 for a new one if you lose it. Many consumers already use wireless headphones with their phones but Bluetooth has it’s own set of problems that we just won’t get into right now. One thing that Apple might be doing better than other companies is how they will handle photos on their device going forward. Dual-camera technology is nothing new but Apple will be using it the two cameras richer photos using a broader color spectrum and depth mapping. As far as the rest of the phone, here’s a few of the tech specs (for the iPhone 7 Plus):

  • A10 Fusion chip (64-bit)
  • 5.5″ screen (1920 x 1080 px), 401 ppi
  • Dual 12-megapixel cameras (on the back); Wide-angle: F1.8 and Telephoto: F2.8
  • 7-megapixel front-facing camera (w/ 1080p HD video recording)
  • 4K video at 30 fps
  • 1080 HD video at 30 fps or 60 fps

Will you be getting a iPhone 7 or 7 Plus? Does it not having a headphone jack bother you? Leave a comment down below.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users experienced a scare when reports that your phone might catch fire began to surface due to defective batteries. A global recall of the Note 7 is in effect so here’s what you need to know:

  • If you purchased your device before September 15, it is subject to the recall
  • Carriers have been instructed to allow consumers to exchange their device for a fixed unit (said to be available starting Wednesday 9/21) or exchange it for another device
  • Customers will get a $25 gift card for the inconvenience or a $25 bill credit

Your check your phone’s serial number (or IMEI) to verify if an exchange it required by going to the Galaxy Note7 Safety Recall page: http://www.samsung.com/us/note7recall/

To be on the safe side, we suggest you just exchange your phone. Samsung has worked really hard at being a major competitor for Apple and it’s hard to say what the long term effects of this recall will be.


The new Moana trailer is out! Have you checked it out yet?

In case you were wondering, here is the box of Fried Twinkies thath we saw at the store and what they looked like once made. For the most part they taste much like the ones that you would get at a county fair (primarily like funnel cake) and overall pretty tasty. Maybe a side of bacon would have made it better. LOL!

This year we see the return of the Christmas version of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In this episode we had some debate on this episode about which version is better (day or night). What do you think? Leave a comment down below.

Until next time! °o°
