    72: That's Classic Mousepad

    Ok let's just get this out of the way now: The first minute of audio is really weird. We don't know why and we didn't have time to re-record it. Plus it's actually kind of funny to sound like we're in the witness protection program. This week, Keith and Mark continue to talk about the Mac, ReactiveCocoa, and speculate wildly on the existence of UXKit.

So come for that and stay for the Batman discussion.
