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.
After a long and exhausting week, Nati and Greg talk a bit about their new year resolutions - some new and some recycled - before diving into Netflix snubbing Apple for their new subscribers, and not talking about Apple's earning warning and what it means.
In addition, we discussed the battery replacement program, Greg's interest in the 12" Macbook and what's missing from the iPad Pro to make it a great laptop
After being Internet-less, Greg has a super fast fiber-optics internet that spoils him. So we talked about human interaction without the Internet.
Also, we talked about what makes Israeli's good at startups, the new iPad Pro BendGate, Apple telling the world that AI and ML are important, and Nati tells about his multi-Watch lifestyle.
Nati's wooden roof is making some noise, and Greg is moving to a new house which is why we have pre-recorded this episode in which we talk about why the sound quality is important to us, Apple Music coming to the Alexa ecosystem and what makes Apple Music/ content different from other Apple services.
Also, we discussed about Microsoft's new attempts at a skinny OS and browsers.
