Monday's Smorgasbord is packed with informative tech news, and great music

After only hours of recovery time from the Mosen Explosion, I’m back on Mushroom FM with my regular week-day show, the Smorgasbord. It’s where we serve up a healthy dose of the latest in tech news and commentary, throw in some great conversation and some of the best music ever made.

On Monday’s show, the aftermath of the iPhone pre-order frenzy. I’ll talk wireless chargers, what’s coming up in iOS 11.1 and WatchOS 4.1, and WhatsApp has just introduced one of its most requested features.

The Mosen Explosion takes Wings

Finally we’ve got to short sleeve weather in glorious Wellington. The days are getting warmer and longer, and everything’s feeling marvellous. And I’m looking forward to bringing you a decidedly summery Mosen Explosion. Yet another reminder that this week, due to Europe ending daylight saving time while the US is still on it, it will be on at 6 PM in the UK just for this week, still 2 PM Eastern, and 7 AM in New Zealand.

An important programming note if your clocks are going back this weekend

This is a special cautionary note to all our Mushroom Crowd in Europe, the UK, and anywhere else where clocks are falling back this weekend.

The day has finally arrived, and the Smorgasbord's got the X factor

Are you going to be by a device at 3 AM Eastern time for the big iPhone X ordering? Some will get lucky, some will be left disappointed. I’ll be right there with you, trying to nab one for launch day. Tune in and find out how I get on. Oh the tension!

So why not fire up the jolly old Smorgasbord on Mushroom FM and we’ll keep each other company. There’s other tech news going on in the world too, including a girl who’s in trouble for showing off an iPhone X belonging to her Dad who works for Apple, more Google Pixel woes, and in the iOS calculator, numbers may not add up.

On the Smorgasbord, we pay tribute to Fats Domino, and there's tech news you can use

It’s Jonathan Mosen, back on Mushroom FM for Thursday’s edition of the Smorgasbord at 3 AM and PM Easter US time, that’s 8 AM and PM in the UK.

Today, I’ll get a couple of Fats Domino tracks into the playlist, paying tribute to this musical icon who died on Wednesday.

In tech news, we learn about how Amazon wants to let itself into your house to deliver stuff. There’s a new Android developer preview, and on the eve of iPhone X pre-orders, has Apple relaxed face ID security in the interest of getting more units out? Spoiler alert, they say they haven’t, despite reports.

On Wednesday's Smorgasbord, Facebook fools with the feed, and much more

Join Jonathan and a global audience of people who love a daily dose of tech news, great conversation and groovy music, because that’s what we do every week day at 3 AM and PM Eastern on Mushroom FM’s Smorgasbord. You should know that this show was recently awarded the prestigious Smorgasbord award by the Mushroom FM Board of Directors, for being the only show on Mushroom FM called the Smorgasbord.

On Wednesday’s edition, what’s Facebook up to now? They’ve been conducting news feed experiments in six countries, and business owners in particular are disgruntled.

On Tuesday's Smorgasbord, moaning in the air, a phone with that burnin feeling and more

Hard to believe it’s time to tell you about Tuesday’s edition of the Smorgasbord on Mushroom FM, the show with a healthy dose of tech news, conversation and awesome music.

Today, an extraordinary story about a flight crew on a long international flight who came up with one of the most bizarre ways to pass the time you have ever heard.

If you’re in the US, there’s a way to get a new Apple Watch for next to nothing if you’re prepared to put the work in.

Does the new Google Pixel phone have a big problem with its screen?

An important, difficult conversation on A Cuppa at the Mosens

Normally, we don’t preview what’s coming up on A Cuppa at the Mosens, Mushroom FM’s global call-in show, quite this early in the week. But the conversation we’d like to have this week is so important, yet so difficult, we want to give you plenty of notice.

We’ve been moved and inspired by the Me Too social media hashtag, which has shed light on how widespread sexual abuse and harassment is in our society.

On Monday's Smorgasbord, from boom to blast, more on the Creators Update, and paying it back

Join me, Jonathan Mosen, at either 3 AM or 3 Pm Eastern time for another great mix of tech news, fun conversation, and some of the best music ever made. That’s how we roll on the Smorgasbord.

On Monday’s edition, if you’ve heard a UE Boom or Megaboom, you’ll know they sound really epic for a portable, battery-operated speaker. What could UE possibly do to improve on it? I have the answer, and you may find it rather attractive.

I’ll talk more about what to do if you’re sure you love your Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and what action you can take if you don’t.

On this week's Mosen Explosion, it's time

Time goes by so slowly, and time can do so much. A week is a long time in politics. Time heals all wounds. Ah, time. It plays such a big role in our lives. And at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM in the UK, it’s time, yet again, for another epic Mosen Explosion.
