The Mac & Forth Show

It’s the last Mac & Forth Show of the year, but we will return in January (even if you beg us not too). This week Ric, Karl and Mark Chappell (EssentialMac and Rampant Mumberlings) are joined by Tony Blunt (The Airwaves Podcast) to discuss the Apple related news from the last 7 days. Huge iPads, Apple Music goes Android and Beats goes bye-bye plus new Apple Watches rumoured.

It’s here and it’s huge.

Apple on Android.

Not a good week for Music Streamers.

Every Little Helps, Apple Pay.

Watching Watch rumours…again.

 

Reverse the decision to introduce the new surveillance bill link.

Karl: Mix-Your-Watch
Mark: Ferrite Recording Studio
Ric: Geckoboard

The new iPad Pro’s are here and so are the entire team…for once. Find out if Matt, Barry, Ric, Karl or Mark Chappell (EssentialMac and Rampant Mumberlings) have ordered one (I know you’re dying to know right)? Also we circle back to the Governments Investigatory Powers Bill and cry ‘Liar, liar, pants on fire’ before rounding up the show by asking if it all now downhill for Apple…as we’re made to believe at least.

Also we have our responses to our last Latched Question and you can join our future Latched conversations by visiting here.
