iPhone 6 replaces your wallet and we’re charmed by William Shatner on The CultCast



This week: Yosemite beta is not for the faint of heart; William Shatner is the coolest grandpa ever; to take on Apple, Microsoft doubles down on design; Apple inches closer to a digital wallet; why the Apple on your iPhone 6 could glow; iBeacons are a marketer’s best friend; and then… if you could ride any animal into battle, what would it be? We’ll answer that question and more on an all-new Get To Know Your Cultist.

    You know, T-mobile network access won’t matter now that iOS 8 will do WiFi calling for T-Mobile customers and Spotify, and most other streaming music is now free on T-mobile.

    I am no more interested in just rumors about the release of iPhone 6. Well, the
    only confirmation out of these rumors is that iPhone 6 will launch in two
    variant that is 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch sapphire display along with higher
    resolution and also support the same wireless charger that I used to charge my Lumia
    920 and purchased from Amazon www .amazon.com/dp/B00JA7HNZO
