We talked about the things that we found interesting in the Apple September event in the usual BYOD style, but not before we update on the status of Greg’s mobile devices and talk about the most important thing that happened in the last week - Google killing off Inbox 😂
Nati is dragging Greg back into the technology realm, as we discuss what is the potential of Apple Pencil support on the iPhones, how we use 3D Touch and how it is similar to the Note's S-Pen.
Also, we touch about some iPhone and Watch rumors which include pricing, marketing names, what benefits would a bigger screen Watch actually bring and if Apple will introduce new AirPods.
Greg gets a Note 9, so Nati has to grill him on the choice of his new Android device, as we discuss why Greg finds Android exciting, the experience with Bixby, how the Note 9 handles dual-SIM and more.
We also talk about why Twitter eventually wins, and what the heck is about to happen with the 2018 iPhone line in terms of the marketing, prices and everything else.
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.
