Daily Episode 28 – Podcasts App and Redshirts Review
Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the flagship Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid It’s a prestige posting, and life couldn’t be better . . . until Andrew begins to pick up on the fact that:
– Every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces.
– The ship’s captain, its chief science officer and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations.
– At least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.
Not surprisingly, a great deal of energy below decks is expended on avoiding, at all costs, being assigned to an Away Mission. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues’ understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is . . . and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.
I also look at the new Podcasts app from Apple. I talked about podcast apps before on Daily Episode 8 and this is a bit of an update for iOS users. Apple released the app yesterday and it is very similar to the current iphone/ipad iTunes experience.
