SMRPodcast #225: Chicken Wings And Beer Part 25

SMRpodcast Episode #225 has been recorded and is online.  It’s just Robb and Chris this week so we hit you with another edition of Chicken Wings and Beer.
We start the show off with the epic saga of “splintering the cord” and getting his Tivo set up.  The stars were just not in aliment with Chris’ desire to get rid of Direct TV.
We also talk about the self inflicted public relations nightmare that the NFL front office is undergoing with it’s complete and utter fumbling (pun intended) of it’s credibility in dealing with Ray Rice and other domestic violence cases with players.
Robb thinks that Apple Pay will actually “bring up with the tide” other mobile payment options, Apple bungled the launch of the iPhone 6 unlike anything we’ve seen them bungle in recent memory, Sparks Steakhouse sues Yelp to find out identity of reviewer leaving trollish reviews.  We’ve got all this, our picks, and more, in episode #225 of the SMRpodcast.
