Essential Apple Podcast 95: Chaos meets Bad Planning

7/9/2018
More
Recorded 8th July 2018 Well this week the news was all about rumours... From the ones you and I could come up with through to the frankly fanciful. But we tend not to do rumours on this show, so I am having none of that. Instead I have Oliver Breidenbach of Boinx and Guy Serle from the MyMac Show and we discuss MIMO Live, Tim Berners-Lee being "devastated" by the state of the web. Mojave, Betas and more. Why not come and join the Slack community? You can now just click on this Slackroom...

Essential Apple Podcast 94: Talking Photolemur, Luminar & Aurora HDR with Skylum

7/4/2018
More
Recorded 1st July 2018 I am joined by Alex Tsepko the CEO of Skylum Software to talk about Photolemur, Luminar, what happened to the DAM module Aurora HDR... Actually the interview was done in two parts because we had issues trying to record while Alex was driving across the Ukraine... (who'd have guessed that?) But regardless of that we got a really great interview. Also Suffolk Pete (@hermboy) and I chew over the news of the week. Why not come and join the Slack community? You can now...

Essential Apple Podcast 93: Summertime Blues

6/24/2018
More
Recorded 24th June 2018 For a change, I thought I would have a panel of guests and do a “round table” show. Everyone I asked seemed to be busy - England World Cup Game, Canadian Public Holidays, summertime family outings, vacations in the wilds - I thought I was going to be without any guests at all (hence the show title). Despite my initial fears however, I have garnered guests galore. I am pleased to welcome back Steve Hammond (@???), Donny Yankellow (@rtteacher) and Nick Riley...

Essential Apple Podcast 92: Is the AR Future Here Yet?

6/18/2018
More
Recorded 17th June 2018 Well this week it has a bit of an odd one, quite a few stories but not much of any great import. Rogue Amoeba bemoaned the state of Mac hardware, while John Martellaro thinks the omens are good for new hardware soon. Developer Harley Turan showed us some AR that looked like the sort of real world use we've imagined. Apple closed down the lightning port to increase customer security while GrayShift claim to have already bypassed this defence (but then again they...

Essential Apple Podcast 91: It's all about the software

6/11/2018
More
Recorded 10th June 2018 Well this week it has been all about WWDC and that was all about the software. I am joined by iOS developer WeyHan Ng to talk about all that and a few other stories too. Extra special thanks to Han for being a real trouper after I forgot to push the record button... (What a numpty!) Why not come and join the Slack community?

Essential Apple Podcast 90: ’Twas the night before WWDC...

6/5/2018
More
Recorded 3rd June 2018 Bad day to be recording a podcast really with WWDC being tomorrow... I don't want to talk about it too much as by the time this is posted it will all be over. However as the elephant in the room we had to at least mention it! Meanwhile Guy Serle (@Macparrot) and Roger Harmon (@gofortech) and I dug up a few other stories to mull over.

Essential Apple Podcast 89: That's Kiwi, Not Kiwi…

5/28/2018
More
Recorded 26th May 2018 This week GDPR happened... some US news sites decided they couldn't be bothered figuring out what it meant and have basically just blocked off access from the EU (except that isn't how GDPR works) while Microsoft and Apple have decided they will make GDPR compliance a global thing; because that is the right thing to do (and actually also it is the easiest solution). News is surprisingly abundant as we run up to WWDC and there aren't even any rumours/leaks of note...

Essential Apple Podcast 88: Slow News Week!

5/21/2018
More
Recorded 20th May 2018 I am joined by Suffolk Pete to take a ramble down the byways of what news there actually is this week. One biggish story - and most of what you read about that was apparently wrong, and one that quite literally dumbfounded the pair of us with the sheer stupidity some people seem to display. Other than that we do our best to find a few things of interest to fill up the time. You don't need a special invite to join our Slack community any more, you can now just click...

Essential Apple Podcast 86: Doom and Gloom Cancelled

5/9/2018
More
Recorded 6th May 2018 Mark is feeling under the weather again - although the weather here is decidedly pleasant for a change! I am joined by Donny Yankellow to talk over this week's news. Apple's iPhone X is far from a flop, Apple had a record quarter raking in the cash hand over fist. Analysts were all way off... What Apple records about you; and whatever else we think of during the show. Remember you don't need a special invite to join our Slack community any more, you can now just...

Essential Apple Podcast 85: Investing in the Alien Star World

5/5/2018
More
Recorded 29th April 2018 It is REALLY late - we are sorry, but Mark is still suffering with his health and although I took over mid week I had a lot of other things going on... Apologies again. This week Apple officially killed the Airport products; Intel delayed their next chips (probably meaning a 32GB MacBook Pro isn't on the cards yet)… Rumours abound about poor iPhone sales, the projected death of Touch 3D, AR/VR headsets and more. Whether or not we will get to talk about any of...

Recorded 22nd April 2018 We're back – sorry about last week but due to other commitments Mark and I couldn't get a slot to do a show. Also sorry that this one is a bit late... Life and work etc. This week... Mark gets stuck in traffic while I am joined by Vic Hudson, a veteran of the Bubblesort, Pragmatic, App Story and Pocket Sized Podcasts.

Recorded 2nd April 2018 With Mark still on his vaccation/birthday bender, Simon is joined by Slackroom member Suffolk Pete to talk over some of the week's Apple and Tech stories. Whilst it has mostly been about Apple and the Field Trip Event and the new iPad with Pencil support there have been some other stories too! Apple put out a host of updates. Cloudflare introduced a new free public DNS service, Microsoft want to monitor your language, the US want to check your social history and...

Recorded 20th March 2018 As Mark is planning to take two weeks away to relax and enjoy his birthday we recorded this early in the week. Since then it's all been about Facebook (and done to death by everyone else). With a view to presenting something different to everyone else this week, we are proud bring you an interview with Dr Andy Yen, CEO and founder of Proton Technologies – the company behind ProtonMail and ProtonVPN.

Recorded 18th March 2018 Mark is otherwise engaged this week, so Simon is joined by Bob Wood, My Mac reviewer and Tucson MUG member to talk over some of the week's Apple and Tech stories including Apple's Field Trip event announcement, the GrayKey iPhone unlocking tool, the Facebook data breach and the fact that cyber criminals don't always keep their word! Sorry my side of the audio is not great again, I unwittingly messed up my noisegate setting and as a result I am a bit hissy and...

Recorded 11th March 2018 This week Android decided join Apple in adopting HEIF (which has to be good news for everyone). TunnelBear sadly got taken over by McAffee (who I did not know are half owned by Intel) and there is news of a forthcoming documentary on Apple's spinoff General Magic that was a glorious failure!

Nemo's Hardware Store Due to an error during editing and the subpar audio I got out of Discord (pretty sure that was my fault too to be honest) Nemo's Hardware Store in the last show was somewhat "compromised" for which I apologise to John, WIP Labs and all the listeners. As a result and by way of recompense I bring you the original NHS 78: WIP Labs in its full glory.

3/5/2018

Recorded 4th March 2018 This week the tech news has mostly been all about the Mobile World Congress, and it wasn't very exciting to be fair – mostly seemed like a lot of people copying the “notch” they all made so much fun of... So for a bit of a different feel this week we are joined by the irrepressible and effervescent GazMaz from the MyMac show to take a look at the apparent “disturbance in the force” caused by the “sudden” arrival of Vero, the appearance of Micro.blog, and a couple...
