Reports of Apple's financial problems prove that success can be its own burden, we chat with Rooster Teeth founder "Burnie" Burns, Google melts down Glass to start again and what we want from Samsung Galaxy S7.


Apple CEO Tim Cook has an embroidered decorative throw pillow in his office which reads: "Heavy the head that wears the crown". I don't have any evidence to support that claim, but based on the way Apple financial reports get scrutinised, I can only assume it's true. We take a small reality check on the latest earnings call and what it truly means for Apple.

Last year we spoke with Gus Sorola from Rooster Teeth, the online production powerhouse responsible for online video series like Red vs Blue. Last weekend saw the first ever international Rooster Teeth Expo held in Sydney and we took the opportunity to catch up with "Burnie" Burns, Sorola's fellow Rooter Teeth founder, who spoke with us about their first feature film, their massive Australian fan base, crowd-funding and much more.

Google has very quietly stripped away all the social media sites relating to its much-maligned Google Glass wearable, while also recently starting the mysterious Project Aura which promises to be "Google Glass and beyond."

Finally, with the Samsung Galaxy S7 rumoured to be announced in February, we run down our list of dream features for the potential flagship. Spoiler alert: It's all about that battery life.
