The Boys dig into Coldplay’s new album Music of the Spheres, preview the new supercharged Apple computers, consider privacy and surveillance online, debate the Minimum Wage and then spend some time in the Gospel of John and Revelation once again.
The Zippy Crew returns to the music front, looking at Coldplay’s new album. Tim is a longtime Coldplay fan and Jason… isn’t. So, what do they think of this new material from the Chris Martin-fronted band? They also talk about Dream Academy’s “Life in A Northern Town” and the Moody Blues’ Days of Future Passed.
Jason tolerates Tim going all geeky about the souped up new M1 Pro and M1 Max processors that Apple unveiled last week. These new high end MacBook Pros may or may not be for you, but the boys discuss how they speak to the overall changes in the tech universe and how amazing even the low end, quite affordable M1 Macs are compared to Intel computers. Tim also references Steve Job’s 2007 unveiling of the iPhone.
Speaking of those changes, the Boys consider the continuing revelations of how much Big Tech tracks us and what we can do about it, pointing to some of the tips in Dennis E. Powell’s recent column. They also consider the Brave Browser and Search and the advantages of the Apple ecosystem, which sells products to you and doesn’t sell you to subsidize products.

Has Jason watched through Deep Space Nine yet? Has Tim watched Jason’s new favorite, Broadchurch?
Tim and Jason debate over whether or not a minimum wage increase will help get more people to a “just wage” that they can live off of and support their families with. They make reference to the impact this has on jobs, such as MODOT Snow Plow drivers.
