Recalling "Reply All" mistakes, Nick Mokey, Ryan Waniata & Matt Smith join Greg Nibler for this week's Trends With Benefits.
Topics include Gmail's new addition and how it can save you from mistakes (if you're quick enough). Also, the incredible power of Taylor Swift over Apple Music. Or, as "Taylor Truthers" claim, was it all just a show crafted by Apple's marketing team....

This homemade laser shotgun is insane, and it comes with the disclaimer "Do not point at satellites". Enough said.
After landing on the Moon nearly a half century ago, the list of galactic milestones has grown. Now Pornhub wants to film a porn in space. The plot of a spaceship repairman stopping by in the middle of the day might be a stretch.

If the beginning of this episode of TWB doesn't make much sense, that's because it is our inaugural simulcast on Periscope. So, yes everyone at the table has a beard this week.
