Two personal assistants walk into a bar with special guest Guilherme Rambo

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”.

One mile selfie stick

Nati is trying to teach his dog to do the dishes, without success and Greg is doing some microphone acrobatics, as we talk about iTunes not being killed, why every change Twitter is doing gets so much criticism, (PRODUCT)RED iPhones, and smartphones getting an increasing amount of multiple camera lenses. Also, we talk about Android manufacturers lying about security updates.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should

We play with the idea of AI taking over pro applications, just before we discuss Apple’s recent push in AI with new key hirings, and when will these moves bear user-focused fruits. Also, we try to understand Apple’s latest iOS development schedule as WWDC is around the corner, whether Apple’s Mac Pro announcement timing is good or not, the rumors about Apple going the ARM way with the Macs by 2020, and what the heck is going on with developers and Watch apps.

An Apple Pencil for scale

Greg is messing with his setup just before the show (again). But that doesn’t stop us from discussing the Apple education event which was boring because of us, and the story Apple tried to tell and how the Pencil fits in. We also talk about event storytelling, and whether Apple’s efforts will help them to regain the education market. We ramble for a while about Apple Watch bands before going into Facebook’s shady privacy policies, how will the China-US relationship affect Foxconn acquisition of Belkin and what would you do with a 512GB smartphone.

Two devices we are not supposed to like

We ranked our favorite Apple products from the last 5 years, which seems to be a bit controversial. Also, we talk about Apple doubling down on owning the core tech of their devices, and how Chinese Android vendors are trying very hard to showcase advanced tech, but eventually go with the heard

4 fifths of a retina

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.

Everyone gets offended

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?
