    I never realized, but I just my index finger to scroll on a mouse. Shannon uses her middle. Which do other people normally do?

  4. inhaleexhale says:

    Good review of the Basilisk, Shannon. I am thinking of getting one of these.

    Hey Apple, you do know the Samsung Gear watches have had a cell radio in them for a few years now.

    Hey Patrick, not trying to heckle in anyway shape or form, but it is pronounced "CHē" for Qi. Based on the Chinese word for life force fyi.  Great show as always! Keep up the good work!

    Apple is the Oprah of 4k content

  8. Forrest Proctor says:

    Thanks for another great episode. And for the record, it's the Iphone 8 for me. I just need a device that can hold all of my Apple Lossless music. I can do without the glass, wireless charging and faceless recognition.

  9. truetierra says:

    I really like that clutch feature on the mouse. Very cool!

    Some of those fast pass machines for Disney have a small button on the back that you can press and it will give you a ticket without counting against the limit you are allowed to have at one time.

  11. Greg M says:

    FYI the Equifax hack did not only affect US residents. Also affected were an unknown number of Canadians and UK residents. Here is the Canadian Privacy Commissioner post re the hack which of course does not contain any useful information other than Canadians should not use the Equifax am I affected page https://www.priv.gc.ca/en/opc-news/news-and-announcements/2017/an_170912/

    Here in Canada you can buy the starting level iPhone X for $1314 Canadian plus sales taxes. Premiere smart phones have been over $1,000 for a while here.

    I went skydiving ~40 years ago. No tandem jumps, so I jumped by myself. Only took a month for my knee to heal.

    Why isn't the Basilisk southpaw friendly? boooooooooo.

  14. fred soksabay says:

    keep one eye closed, phone won't unlock IIRC from some article I read

  15. Cj Rider says:

    Keep in mind if you DO buy into the Equifax credit monitoring…..you wave your right to any lawsuits against them in the future.

  16. Let's Play WOW says:

    Kinda scary having Apple to have your face in there servers

  17. Let's Play WOW says:

    The reason why these companies are skipping the number nine in their version is because of Japan, they think that the number nine is bad luck. So if Windows or Apple came out with the number nine version they thought that Japan would not buy their products.

  18. Tyler says:

    i really can't wait for all those bad doers to leave an apple compatible air charger in a hotel or coffee shop that is designed to overload the battery on the iphone x or 8 and make it catch fire that will be the day just calling it now

  19. Zack Case says:

    TekThing delivers again! Thank you.

  20. Richard Pucci says:

    So excited to hear their thoughts on the New IPhones.

    It's interesting they didn't mention anything about having the charger – headphone jack cable included. I feel like they are giving you less for your dollar. When I bought my AirPods it didn't come with the wall adapter, just the charging cord.

    Projectors I need help … I don't want to spend a fortune I'm not sure if I want 1080P or 4K what would be my two best options?
