Brace yourselves. The Double Tap Canada team finally get around to the long promised, or should that be threatened, task of singing the A Team theme tune. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, they sing it in the bathroom.

Apples New LIDAR Sensor.

Moving on to the tech, this week the team discuss the possible implications of the new LIDAR sensor in the recently released iPad Pro.

Also, could it help with the mainstream acceptance of smart glasses?
