We start this episode with Apple's new–and first–MagSafe accessory, the MagSafe Battery Pack. At $99, it's about twice as much as third-party options, but by dint of being an actual Apple product, it does more, and works more fluidly within Apple's ecosystem. We see upsides and downsides and discuss them all.

Next, we talk about the new Hyundai Elantra N sport sedan–a 276-horsepower, manual transmission car aimed squarely at the small performance car market. Hyundai used to be a cheap, non-issue brand; I think because of this new car in particular the brand is now undeniably desirable.

Lastly, Seth Rogen's weed and smoking accessory brand Houseplant released its latest product, a gorgeous glass gravity bong, the $190 Houseplant Gravity Glass. We talk about the product, but also the brand in general, and why it feels different from other celebrity-driven brands; namely, that it's not super corny.
