Nati breaks Greg's ideas about Israel the desert, while Greg is experimenting with his 6th microphone.
Also, Greg talks about his concerns about podcasts control and Nati talks about his thinking about the Apple-Facebook dynamics and goes out for a rant about Apple's poor developer relations.
Greg & Nati share some TV shows they are watching, before discussing FaceTime bugs, how Facebook's customers are advertisers and not the users, why Apple should not create a social network, and why subscriptions are the future.
Nati speculates how American Football would have been with ostrich eggs, and finally gets used to the Series 4 Apple Watch. Greg does a ton of podcasts with his new podcasting gear.
We also talk about, Apple hiring and un-hiring, what 2nd generation AirPods could bring, a new era of smartphone experiments, and innovation time frames.
This week we dragged our special guest Lee Peterson into follow-up-land, but not before we talk about some podcasting networks, and Lee's bad luck with Apple products, while Nati reminds Greg and Lee that at least they have proper Apple Stores with good services.
Nati ponders about the TV and will it go away, now that AirPlay 2, HomeKit and iTunes are on 3rd party Smart TVs. In addition, we follow-up on the Battery replacement program and how it seems to have affected iPhone upgrades outside of China in addition to the stagnating smartphone market.
And for last we talked a bit about the new Smart Battery cases and will the AirPower be attractive enough if it will actually ship.
Greg buys a mixer and dives into the world of XLR and pro audio equipment, which gets us talking about umms and ahhs. Nati follows up with his meditation resolution, while Greg is taking some time off from Twitter, which gets us talking about Screen Time and 2-factor authentication.
We also talk about iTunes on Tizen TVs, Apple's AirPlay 2 and HomeKit staring in CES, privacy and will Apple never make their own TV sets. In addition, we somehow got into Face ID and why it makes more sense than an under-the-screen Touch ID and the rumours about a new iPad mini.
