SyrupCast 39: We The North (Want Google Fi)

This week, Daniel and Douglas dig deep into wearables, specifically focusing on the app potential of the Apple Watch and the upcoming Android Wear update.

Also discussed is the tenuous relationship between HBO, VPNs and #takemymoney wannabees: does Bell's relationship with HBO prevent a service like HBO Now from ever coming to Canada?

Facebook just announced it has reached nearly 1.5 billion monthly users across its core network, but its chat entities, Messenger and WhatsApp, combine for nearly that number of users. Where does Facebook go from here, now that its mobile transformation is well underway?

The Xperia Z3 Compact is a great smartphone – we just reviewed it – but are small phones really worth getting worked up about? Are any phones really worth getting worked up about anymore? Daniel and Douglas explore that point through the lens of the recently-updated HTC One M9.

We're in person this week, and there's laughter, beer, and a little bit of swearing.

Hosts: Daniel Bader, Douglas Soltys
