A magnet won’t stick to solid gold, but will Internet hatred stick to a $17,000 solid-gold Apple Watch? Yes, yes it will.

With Game of Thrones season approaching, Ian restarts his HBO subscription (apparently he only keeps it for three months) and the rest of the panel ponders whether Apple’s exclusive on the HBO Now streaming app will give it a leg up.

Which video? How did a 16-year-old in 2015 discover Primus? Which channel was showing music videos?!

This week’s panel includes Digital Trends’ CEO Ian Bell, managing editor Nick Mokey, A/V editor Caleb Denison, staff writer Drew Prindle, and host Greg Nibler.
