On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Peter Bird is the host and has been joined by Kelly Guimont, Steve Sande, Antonio Rosario, and Mark Chappell, to discuss everything from the Apple Watch to Gene Munster.
More information regarding discussed topics:
Apple Watch: After some early tomfoolery, Peter kicks off the show discussing the Apple Watch. Oh dear, I wish I was hosting this week! Apparently there was a little update to the Apple Watch OS and Kelly says that things are little peppier than before. Peter wonders where the walkie-talkie app is for Apple Watch. It will be up to you dear listener, but I am positively turned off the Apple Watch now. Antonio hits on an interesting point and that is that the Apple Watch is one of the first products released by Apple that he isn't excited about. Kelly believes that the Apple Watch is merely an auxiliary piece of technology, that whilst useful, is only useful in conjunction with an iPhone. What do you think? Let us know in the comments? Peter claims that the Apple Watch has changed people's behavior, but Antonio wants to know how? Is it positive and a better experience or not?
Headphones: Peter interestingly decided to adopt Bluetooth headphones, instead of wired headphones for his iPhone/Apple Watch combo. That is a perspective that I hadn't considered before and it certainly does assist with being able to listen to music without being tied to a device. But sadly, Peter only got a cheap headset. Oh Peter, we need to discuss music fidelity via Bluetooth upon my return. Kelly is also looking for some Bluetooth headhones and whilst everyone's preference is different, I would recommend a set of Bose Wireless Headphones. Intriguingly, Mark Chappell mentions Aftershokz Bone Conducting Headphones. Nemo really needs to review a pair for the World's Shortest Reviewcast.
Gene Munster: Kelly takes us for a walk down memory lane and talks about the latest Munster/Piper Jaffray claim regarding an Apple television set. Antonio plays Devil's Advocate by asking why Apple wouldn't release a television. The conversation is interesting and whilst this show doesn't normally talk about rumours, there are some interesting opinions this week that will make you think. What are your thoughts about the Apple TV? Apple TV content is heavily discussed and Mark Chapell suggests that the reason for a lack of content on Australian services is due to the fact that we should be visiting the beach more. His point is certainly valid, but it is scary out there, and I'm not just talking about me wearing a pair of swimmers at the beach.
The New Steve Jobs Film: There is another? I never saw the previous one. It must be due to a lack of content in Australia! Will you be seeing the new Steve Jobs film? The roundtable team then talk about movies in general and Steve claims to have seen Star Wars: A New Hope forty times at the theatre. That has to be a world record. How many times have you seen Star Wars?
