Bring Your Own Device walks the very thin line between being an Apple fan and not being an Apple apologist.
Each week your hosts Greg (@GR36) and Nathan (@natisho) discuss interesting topics surrounding Apple and the technology world at large.
Now that the iPhone event is past us, we talk about the leaks leading to the event and break down the event's interesting (for us) topics and themes in our iPhone event Bingo kind of way.
We also share our opinions about the products, and whether or not we will get them, and why.
It's now only a week away from the iPhone event. Nathan is excited, but Greg has had enough of the leaks. We talk about the heating up assistant wars, and its effect on Android OEMs as well as Apple moving Siri to a new leader.
Most exciting of all, we start iPhone event Bingo - making the most outlandish predictions for the launch event as we can. Join along at home and see if you win!
This week we have a special guest - Ben Basche - which joins us in discussing about the Apple's TV messy strategy, Android Oreo's launch and how it reflects about Google's Android strategy and relationships with Android OEMs. Also we talk about Essential and where it fits, iOS 11 beta 7 and how the iOS UI is evolving, iPhone 8's pricing - the value of the smartphone - and who did it first. And we finish with the app subscription models through the Ulysses blunder, and ARKit in a future where Apple makes glasses/ facial wearables.
This week we discover that Greg has more stickers than Nati does and that's a shame that MacOS messages doesn't have stickers. Then we follow-up on How the firmware gods are preventing Greg from installing the latest watchOS beta, the LTE Apple Watch rumors, and the interactive Home button that the iPhone 8/Pro could have. Also we discuss the new iOS 11 betas and icons, question whether the iPhone SE won't be a one-off and give our 2 dime thoughts about Apple's content endeavors and why it might be a push in the wrong direction.
We talked about Nati's new MacBook Pro (Escape) configuration choice and Greg's new Beats Solo 3's and why the W1 chip is a breakthrough technology. We continued with more information discovered in the HomePod firmware: A cellular Apple Watch (Bloomberg is falling behind in Apple news, integrated SIM or an Apple SIM?) A 4K Apple TV (What is a TV these day?) and the iPhone 8/X/Pro's rumored colors (plus a short Greg rant about leaks & prototype) and new fancy camera tech. Finally we talked about OLED and how Apple is pushing the industry (mainly LG) from LCD to OLED.
