This week it’s all about the Mac, as Jason and Myke discuss Tim Cook’s attempts to reassure the concerned Mac user base, Bloomberg’s report about Apple’s Mac product-release struggles, and if the Mac is really a truck at all.
This week, Jason reviews the AirPods while Myke waits for his to arrive. We also discuss Apple’s removal of the battery indicator from MacBooks, and at the very end of the show do a special Myke at the Movies review of “Rogue One."
Myke's got a new office! Also, we follow up on our conversation about ARM Macs and try to explain Single Sign On for Apple TV. Finally, after 25 years, Jason has watched "Home Alone" and will discuss it on a new Myke at the Movies.
Will Apple move the Mac to ARM processors? Myke thinks it’s inevitable, and Jason thinks it’s well within Apple’s power—but thinks it won’t happen. We also discuss Apple possibly moving some iPhone manufacturing to the United States.
Is Apple a big business trapped in the body of a startup? Myke and Jason discuss that issue, say lots of things that might be quoted out of context later, and then settle in to watch 1984's "Gremlins."
Apple’s doing some end-of-the-year cleaning, but what does it mean for the future of the company? This week Jason and Myke discuss the death of the AirPort router, the disbanding of the Mac automation team, and the release of a photo book highlighting Apple’s hardware designs.
After spending the last week with the new MacBook Pro, Jason reviews the Touch Bar and breaks down the approach Apple took in creating an entirely new way to interact with a Mac. Meanwhile, Myke prepares to record podcasts from an empty house with dodgy Internet access.
Fresh off of Jason's 10-day travel odyssey with the new MacBook Pro, we debate where Apple’s taking the Mac, the high price of Retina displays, Apple’s tough decisions about who its Mac customers are, and the case for and against the Mac Pro.
