Episode 8: Peripheral Paraphernalia

Click and Clack, the Keyboard switch brothers

For our eighth regular show, first we look at a few items of Apple news, including the annual Apple shareholder meeting, more on the ongoing dispute with Qualcomm, Apple celebrate International Women’s Day, more cord confusion, and patent fun in East Texas. In the HomeKit Chronicles, we talk about the cornerstone of most HomeKit setups and dig into all things lights. We take a dive into the various connection methods and the pros and cons of each and review offerings from Hue, Sylvania, Eve, and VOCOlinc. In our main topic, we take look at all things peripheral and input devices. The good, the bad, and the just plain weird. We talk about our personal favorite keyboards, mice, and all things in-between, and Jake makes an impulse purchase.
