Gui (AKA Mr. Rambo) returns and pushes his luck again about his MacBook Pro's keyboard, and revealed that Apple has a special way to calibrate 3D Touch on iPhone screens. Also, Greg and Gui talk about the HomePod experience and AirPlay bugs, which takes us discussing Siri - as a failed software project.
In addition, we talk about Apple's next events: WWDC and the education March event, and Nati exploads about Apple's review process, as Gui helps with some "App Review therapy".
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.
