Samsung, you’re copying Apple again but you’re doing it wrong

Samsung, you’re copying Apple again but you’re doing it wrong

The BGR Show weekly podcast might not actually run on a weekly basis, but at least we’re consistent in our inconsistency. On this week’s episode, Jonathan and Zach cover a number of different topics including Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge and the company’s recent “Apple-esque” PR move. They also chat about the upcoming iPhone SE that will be unveiled during an event on March 21st in Cupertino, the nightmare that is the 2016 presidential race, and an argument even breaks out at one point.

It’s an action-packed episode that you definitely won’t want to miss.

Apple vs. the FBI, gas vs. electric, Kanye vs. sanity

By on February 19, 2016 at 10:58 AM.

Apple vs. the FBI, gas vs. electric, Kanye vs. sanity

Welcome to the latest edition of The BGR Show, our weekly podcast that never seems to happen on a weekly basis. Jonathan blames Zach, but we all know it’s his fault. On this week’s show, the pair tackle Apple’s very public, very polarizing battle with the FBI and the U.S. government, the gas car Jonathan might buy after saying he would never buy another gas car, and Kanye’s ongoing meltdown. Zach may have also at one point said that The Wall is a Who album while he was distracted, but let’s just pretend that never happened.

The full episode is embedded below along with some amazing footage from Kanye’s Glow in the Dark tour that Jonathan spoke about on the show.

The Hunchback of Cupertino

The Hunchback of Cupertino

After promising in episode 22 that The BGR Show podcast would once again return to a weekly schedule, Jonathan and Zach promptly went several weeks without recording a new episode. It’s not that they don’t want to appease all of the awesome listeners who constantly message them asking where new episodes are. According to Jonathan, it’s just that life sometimes gets in the way.

On this week’s episode, the two tackle a wide range of topics including Apple’s terrible stylus design (which Zach didn’t know included an adapter for charging), Apple’s terrible Magic Mouse 2 design (which really is inexcusably terrible), Jonathan’s new car (which he promised he would never buy), CES 2016 (which is shaping up to be horribly boring), and Apple’s controversial new iPhone charging case, otherwise known as the Hunchback of Cupertino (which Jonathan says will put other charging case companies out of business).

The BGR Show – Inside the making of The BGR Show theme song with Just Blaze

The BGR Show — Just Blaze music production

I have known Just Blaze since before I started Boy Genius Report, and we have battled back and forth on who has the latest gadgets ever since. For those of you who have been with us from the beginning, you’ll remember that Just was the first person I ever interviewed on the site, and my face was blurred in the video. Just is one of the top producers in the world, and he understands technology on a deep level, so I wanted to catch up with him to talk about where technology is, where it’s headed, and what was involved when we headed into the studio to make the theme song for The BGR ShowMore →

The BGR Show: Episode Six – Nintendo’s Wii U and Leap Motion

The BGR Show: Episode Six – Nintendo’s Wii U and Leap Motion

Nintendo Wii U Leap Motion Hands-On

This week on The BGR Show we spend some time checking out (more like playing, for hours) Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console including the much-hyped GamePad touchscreen controller. We also talk to Nintendo about how the Wii U is going to change gameplay by incorporating two screens, motion, accelerometers and even NFC into popular game titles. Since this episode is all about motion technology, we also caught up with Leap Motion, and went hands-on with their first peripheral — it’s a total game-changer. Instead of using a mouse or even touch, you’re able to manipulate on-screen elements and control your computer just by moving your finger in small motions in front of your monitor. It’s multitouch without the touch, and it’s one of the coolest pieces of technology we’ve seen in a while.
