We have used machine learning and AI to make the ultimate Google I/O wrap up according to two Apple fans. Nathan and Greg talk Google Assistant, privacy concerns and muse over what the Google Home smells like.
For episode 3 Greg and Nathan both take a look at the launches from Microsoft EDU. With new hardware in the form of the Surface Laptop and a new approach to Windows 10S Microsoft really went to town. Could they be taking aim at Apple?
For the first episode Greg and Nathan discuss exactly why they started a podcast about Apple. What interests them and walking the thin line between liking Apple and being a fanboy. We also spend far too long talking about renders, rumours and leaks of questionable credit.
There can’t be many iOS or Mac app for note taking that I still haven’t tried. As soon as I’ve reviewed an app, gone through all the setting up process and made a choice to switch, I start looking around for other apps. I have a major fear of missing out on something that could be a better fit. Truth be told it costs me a fortune, subscription services or expensive one off payments seem to be normal now – but not with Zoho Notebook.Continue reading →
Just imagine this world. You pay a subscription in order to publish to a social network. In order to do this you must be able to prove exactly who you are and provide your contact details. Every other person using the service has to do exactly the same, so you can be sure who is reading and replying to your posts.
The end result is there is no need for little blue ticks, no need for anti-harassment technology nor reporting of spam. All because the users are who they say they are, and can no longer hide behind anonymity. Continue reading →

Apple is making its iPad sales pitch to two groups: existing iPad users and long-time PC users. According to my estimates, there are 100M users still using older iPads (iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini). A significant portion of these users are using devices that don't even support the latest iOS release. Management thinks simpler storytelling and an aggressively low $329 price will entice these users to upgrade to the new 9.7-inch iPad.
The fact that 100M people are still using older iPads demonstrates that the product provides value. Apple is also confident that users will see the significant improvement between the latest iPads and models from five to seven years ago. As for PC users, Apple thinks the iPad Pro line is capable of handling the vast majority of tasks currently given to laptops. Apple looks at the iPad Pro line, which includes Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, as a better solution for consumers than even the Mac. This is quite telling as to management's long-term motivation.
Perhaps finally these are the customers that the iPad has been looking for? Although at £329 I'm not sure why you would buy any other tablet.Permalink

But in this case, it’s really just a way to get rid of that white front. Nearly all of it, anyway. You can see the white plastic border that’s between the curved glass and red aluminum.
No. No you didn’t. You made it a lot worse and spent far too many words trying to excuse this fact.
Being an Apple lawyer must be a pretty high pressure job. The Cupertino company are certainly no stranger to the court room. Spending millions of dollars fighting Samsung , patent trolls and in resent months Tax complaints. Unfortunately these types of cases are building fast, only a few months after disputing owing the EU almost $14billion , the New Zealand Government are unhappy to.Continue reading →
I was under the impression that using a terrorist attack to push through personal agendas was a uniquely American thing. Politicians spending more time on PR than research to ‘cash in’ on a resent event. The FBI tried with the San Berdino shooting, and it seems the UK government are at it now.Continue reading →
