We started talking about Twitter as a followup, which stretched for an hour before we even mentioned tech (per se).
During our Twitter discussion, we talked about should companies decide what's right and wrong in the news, what's wrong in today's discussions (hint: people are not listening), Twitter not taking responsibility for their actions and neglecting their app ecosystem, and whether new platforms like Mastodon or Micro.Blog are the answer. We also shared our Twitter usage philosophy.
Also, we also talked about Pencil support on the iPhone and what Apple should do with the iPad mini.
Nati voluntarily talks Android, as we discuss the Note 9 Unpack event in which Samsung introduced the new Note 9, the new Galaxy Watch - which still uses Tizen and Exynos (instead of Google's WearOS and Qualcomm chips), and the new Galaxy Home speaker which looks like a barbecue grill.
In addition, we talk about the leaked Pixel 3 XL unboxing - which Greg thinks is fake - and how Apple is so ahead of Google in terms of hardware expertise, even after Google's massive investments in that area.
Also, some birthday stuff and Greg posses a very good thought experiment about the next iPhone line.
George from Snappy-Tech (Chachanidze) joins us this week and reveals the origins of Snappy-Tech, keyboard shortcuts when having a Windows PC, a Mac, and a Chrome OS devices, his Huawei P20 Pro that triggers Greg's Trypophobia.
We also talk about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, Apple earnings, and the rumors about the next iPad Pro devices and how will they impact the iPad sales.
Greg decides to do a proper podcast introduction for our special guest: Russell Holly, who joins us to talk about things he is interested about, multi-platform usage, how the Apple Watch changed his life in the last 3 years and the magic of the 3 ring system.
We also talk about the MacBook Pro throttle-gate controversy, The EU's fine against Android, and what is the deal with project Fuchsia
Greg complains about Carphone Warehouse that stole his money before we compare summer conditions in Israel and the UK.
We tried to find some positive things with the new MacBook Pros - a solid upgrade - that continues the controversies around the MacBook Pro line, and how messy is Apple's entire laptop line.
In addition, we talked about the iPhone line front glass leaks, John Giannandrea taking over Apple's AI/ML and Siri teams as the last Siri co-founder leaves Apple, and Huawei's ambitions to become the world's 2nd biggest smartphone manufacturer.
