The BGR Show: Episode 16 – Apple Music Is Our Generation’s Moon Landing

The BGR Show: Episode 16 – Apple Music Is Our Generation’s Moon Landing

In this week’s episode of The BGR Show podcast, I’m joined by Zachary Epstein the Third. Apple Music is finally here — and we’re loving it.

Quick note: I thoroughly apologize for my microphone audio. When we were recording, it used my iMac microphone and not my Neumann, and I am embarrassed. This isn’t an accurate representation of the podcast experience for The BGR Show, and I hope you can one day forgive me for this egregious error. More →

Apple Music First Look: Spotify, Who?

Apple Music First Look: Spotify, Who?

The music industry is in ruins. As we’ve gravitated over the last 10 years to purchasing, and now streaming, single songs as opposed to albums, record labels have taken a huge hit in revenue. But I actually still buy music. And I buy it on iTunes. I just like having something locally stored on my computers and devices so it’s always there. If you don’t have cell or Wi-Fi service, you still have your full music collection at your fingertips.

But over the past couple of years, my usage of streaming services has grown. First Pandora, then Spotify. I didn’t mess around with any of the junky ones with whatever horrible names you can think of. I did, however, sign up for a Beats Music subscription and I fell in love with two things about it: curated playlists from different brands and artists, and playlists for different activities. It made for an incredible listening, discovery and rediscovery experience.

That’s why I’m so excited about Apple Music, which will be launching soon after this article is published. More →

Apple Stores finally begin selling Apple Watch starting today

The Apple Watch is finally here. We have been told by trusted sources that Apple Stores around the country have begun to receive shipments of the Apple Watch for sale through in-store reservations for personal pickup when purchased online. We’re not sure if this means you can buy the watch today or if the stock will be used for overnight purchases and available for pick up tomorrow. There’s no word on the product mix at this point, but we’re still investigating. More →

The BGR Show: Episode 10 – UP3, Samsung’s future, exclusives and more

Last week’s show was one of our biggest so far, thanks in part to a little Apple exclusive we snuck in there. Well, this week we’ve got a couple more exclusives peppered in throughout the show, and we cover our widest range of topics yet. We cover Zach’s love/hate relationship with the new Jawbone UP3, Samsung’s fantastic new ARTIK initiative, an insider’s report on the upcoming iPhone 6s, and yes, the Apple Watch.

Things also get real when the show is interrupted not once but twice by phone calls — first from AT&T and then from Apple’s special private Apple Watch Edition support line — and we play those calls right on the podcast. If you thought you knew how crazy Jonathan is getting waiting for his Edition to finally ship, just wait… More →
