We start with a non-follow-up (not on the list) about the Galaxy S9 and Samsung fans, bringing positivity to the world (via neural hacking), before diving about new iPad rumors, a cheaper MacBook Air and Watch apps.
Greg’s raspberry pie and (expanding) home automation setup still works well, so we talked about the rumors about the 2018 iPhone line, and the baffling cheap(ish) entry-level iPhone X-looking, big-screened device. Before going into MWC and the new notch trend, from Android vendors blindly copying the iPhone X’s notch without a good reason.
Also, Nati can’t stop praising Samsung 🤨 and will Apple's wearables push will continue with over-the-ear headphones?
Greg returns from Ireland after he drank ridicules amounts of Guinness and Nati has a dust particle inside his MacBook Pro's keyboard.
We also talk about home automation, Digital Assistants, AirPods 2nd gen rumors, and bury Windows mobile efforts (again).
We are joined this week by Matt Birchler, who compares his Android experiment with Greg. We continue with Apple Watch, watchOS 5 wishlist, and the smartwatch landscape which has only 2 major players - Apple and Tizen powered Samsung Gear, going forward.
Also, we talk about the HomePod, as Matt shares, his impressions and Greg explains why he bought a 2nd HomePod.
Greg talks about his first impressions from the HomePod, and we touch about the strengths and weaknesses of the device, Also we talk about the (slightly confusing) controls, superb sound quality, and Siri’s shortcomings.
Also, we discuss using Apple devices in a family environment, why we trust Apple more with data related answers and the 2nd iOS 11.3 beta.
