We sidetrack into movie land due to The Last Jedi release, but quickly return to the tech track, with Apple breaking security on HomeKit and fixing it rather quickly. And diving into security and privacy in the current day and age.
Also, Windows PC on SnapDragon chips, the iMac Pro, Jony Ive returns from this Architecture leave to design actual Apple products, and the interesting and surprising acquisition of Shazam.
We discuss how Apple survived the iOS/ macOS bugs apocalypse and mainly the overblown reaction to it, before diving into the Smart Home market which is led by smart speakers, concluding it's far from being a fad.
Also, Greg might get an Apple TV due to Amazon's tvOS app (finally) launch, and Nati falls out of grace with Qualcomm, while Apple is developing more and more hardware/ chip components in-house.
Greg is sick of the Watch bossing him around even when feeling ill, as we dive into Apple's 2017 hardware line-up, discussing what we like and what could be improved, without forgetting the subjective aspects of ranting about products.
Shoutout to MDM Deals: Fantastic deals on fantastic apps & movies
This week we have a special guest - Guilherme Rambo (AKA Mr. Rambo), which reveals the ludicrous prices of Apple products in Brazil. Also, Gui joins Nati as they both share their impressions of the iPhone X, before diving deep into some nerdy talk about BridgeOS and the iMac Pro which will come with an A10 SoC.
Then we continue to talk about the HomePod and whether Apple's software game has taken a hit in recent years.
We talk about Greg’s new Dutch 27” iMac 5k and why IKEA is so awesome, and continue about Qualcomm rejecting Broadcom’s acquisition offer, and the reality that most people don’t give a damn about internet speeds.
Then we dive into some more thoughts about the iPhone X, while shipping time improves before the 2nd launch wave which includes Israel. Discuss the improved wireless charging iOS 11.2 brings among other stuff and give our opinions about the 2018 iPhone line rumors.
