Chuck Joiner and I recently spoke on his MacVoices podcast. Our subject was social media and its impact. Some of the topics we discussed included protecting ourselves at a time when many of us are dangerously overexposed. I went deep on my specific experience with Twitter, which has a lot of value. But Twitter’s also become really toxic; I stepped away because of that and some other reasons which I go into. I even got a bit ranty. Chuck’s a very gracious host, so he let me spin my top.
Ian Schray, Kirk McElhearn, and Rob Griffiths were kind enough to invite me to talk with them on their podcast The Committed this week. We talked about the controversy over Apple’s design of the iPhone X (the infamous “notch”), the Apple TV 4K, and the new LTE-enabled Apple Watch Series 3. I had a great time with these three gents, I hope you have a great time listening in.
Is iOS 11 Apple’s first real attempt to turn the iPad and iPad Pro into a general-purpose computer? I think so. I also have strong opinions on proper backup methodologies and offer some tips for anyone looking for ways to improve the performance of their older Macs (hints: It has to do with memory and storage). If you’re interested in this and other issues including Apple TV 4K, iPhone 8s and the Apple Watch with LTE, and some High Sierra tips and tricks, please listen to this recent episode of The MacCast podcast. Adam Christianson and I had a great time talking! Thanks for having me on, Adam!
On this episode 429 of the Apple Context Machine podcast, Jeff Gamet and I talked at length about iOS 11, the new APFS file system change that’s already come to iOS and is coming to (some) Macs with High Sierra’s release, T-Mobile and LTE Band 71, backups and more. If you’re looking for an hour to fill with Apple nerdery, please tune in, or whatever the kids are doing with podcasts these days.
