It's true, we "cloud" things now. It's a thing. On top of that, iCloud Private Relay is also a thing, and it's not necessarily a good one yet. But it's in beta, so give it time. Plex's new Discovery Watchlist is also in beta, with similar results. No worries, your three favorite geeks talk you through all of this and more. Listen as Pilot Pete, John F. Braun, and Dave Hamilton share your quick tips, some Cool Stuff Found, and mostly answer your questions to ensure we all learn five new things from this week's episode. Press play and enjoy!
