So….would you take the red pill or the blue pill? The red pill, right? 

Journey down the rabbit hole with us, as we chat about the finer points of augmented and virtual reality. These new technologies could revolutionize the way our children learn, the way we experience our day-to-day world…and also, of course, how we game. Okay, so it's mostly to do with the games. 

Learn about Aisle 411 http://aisle411.com/ and Pokemon Go (Gotta Catch ‘Em All)!

Games aside, if you're not scared of whales (cetaphobes, you've officially been warned) check out http://www.magicleap.com/#/home for an example of what's to come.

Also, the agents give proper due and homage to Time Magazine's number one gadget of 2015: Microsoft's HoloLens. Visit http://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-hololens/en-us, and salivate to your heart's content.  

We chat with Nate Bauer during the interrogation on all things holiday and also about his past year as Chief Inspector. Is Die Hard his favorite holiday movie? You'll have to listen! 

Oh, and if you tuned in last time to Alex and Devin's epic battle over Yahoo's passwords, you know some things were said, points were won and lost, stress sweat was generated, mops and cedar shavings were employed. So…we decided to do it again! This week, Alex and Devin engage in a fiery rematch over Windows 10 version 1511: is it a new operating system or a service pack? Let the fur fly.

Also on the docket this month, the Fallout series continues to be totally awesome, 'cause duh.

We wanna hear from you! Who do you think won this battle of the brains? Send feedback and suggestions to squadcast@geeksquad.com.

(Previously aired) One of our favorite parts of Squadcast is the production of the clips and bits. We've collected a few of our favorites from the past year and compiled them into a handy dandy clip episode for easy consumption.

Happy birthday, Scorpio Agents!  This month we honor your fighting spirit with a stinging, epic battle of wits between Devin and Alex, as they engage in Mortal Brain Kombat over the finer points of Yahoo's password "solution".   Next, all hail Tesla for its over-the-air vehicle autopilot update and the Squadcaster’s discuss Microsoft's HoloLens.  Apparently Gamers of the future will be known for their ripped physiques. Also featured, a brutal interrogation of Michael Harris regarding Level One Data Recovery, spooky malware tips and the awesome, savage power of the Geek Squad router.

New, cool cameras and three Geek Squad Protection Plans.  We finish with our favorite apps of the day (and no, we aren’t talking about food!)

This time around we discuss crazy fun technology, including HoloLens, a robot hotel and....Windows 10! We answer some FAQs around how to download, install, and use some of the tools in the new OS. Then, we touch on firmware updates (and why you should do them) and finish out the show with our favorite apps, games and media.

What's up party people?  The Squadcast crew is back and this time around we're discussing wearable tech, why recovery media is so dang important, common pitfalls with new routers, and Best Buy's Teen Tech Centers.  Also, Hackers.  The movie, not the nefaraious no-goodniks.
