TOPIC: Procrastination is a life sentence.

This week, after some high-level discussion on the topics of Marvel and media reduxes, Dan and Merlin (maaaaybe) wrap up their initial and very positive impressions of iOS 9 on modern Apple devices.

More fawning talk of Siri, plus tips on easily adding items to Reminders and Notes.

Dan also lays out his freeing new philosophy and implementations for doing sane email on an iPad.

Then, Merlin goes off a little on why constantly feeling bad about yourself is a terrible idea.
