What's in this episode?

In Episode 23 of Apple Slice Podcast, Simon creates another ridiculous nickname as we delve ears-first into the mind of Zane Lowe with his Apple Music SXSW keynote. Love music? You have got to watch it.

Are streaming exclusives a good thing? And what are they worth? We answer these questions and get real on digital vs physical music - Buddy of Review Culture Podcast also weighs in.

The pros and cons of flexible display technology have us bending our minds, followed by the yearning want and need for a HomeKit home.

We find out your favourite Watch apps, including a bit of Mayo and Hall for that 9to5mac factor. Oh yeah and Steve Jobs is now a comic book hero!
