Alt-J

This week, we talk to a band that came out of nowhere and seized our attention: the British indie rock quartet Alt-J. The band released its debut album, An Awesome Wave, last year and has garnered accolades from music fans and critics alike. We're obsessed with them and think you'll be too. We also honor the pinnacle of music achievement with a Grammy game, unpack why Jesse is tweeting again and analyze your best 3-D printing ideas.

Question of the Week

If you could have Apple remake anything, what would it be?

Tech rumors are saying that Apple is about to revolutionize the watch industry much like they revolutionized the phone industry. So this week we want to ask you, if you could have Apple remake anything, what would it be?

Apple should get into the prosthetics industry.

Of course, their prosthetics would be a bit more costly.

How much, you ask?

Just an arm and a leg....

I want Apple to completely overhaul the podcast-corresponding-to-a-bimonthly-Christian-magazine-that-explores-the-intersection-of-faith-and-pop-culture industry. It is long overdue. Oh, and an Apple graphing calculator would be cool. Why do those still cost $100 dollars and only play the same lame games from 1995.

As much as apple is in the music game already with production software, I think they should start producing audio equipment. Synths, mics, monitors...etc. Could be a beautiful thing.

It could also double as a charger for my Bluetooth tooth.

What if Apple remade movies? I think "Tremors 2: Resurrected" would be a hit!.......Also, nice touch putting Nelly at the end of last week's podcast. Band aids have never been so cool.
