This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and Ric McCorriston as we go over the weeks Apple and tech related news. 

I finally make my Twitter feed usable again. M&F is now available in Apple News. Apples announces a date and new venue for WWDC. The iPad gets some adverts again, finally. Lawmakers decide if we can ‘Fix it’. Imagine if Apple bought Imagine and there are so many rumours floating about.

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers, Alex G. Fox and Dean Murphy (creator of Crystal Adblock) as we go over the weeks Apple and tech related news. 

Apple is nearly ready to get into video streaming with ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and ‘Planet of the Apps’. What will the viewing public make of Apple’s initial offerings? Prince comes to a wider range of streaming services. Has Apple allowed iBooks to become Abandonware? Tim Cook says Fake News is ‘killings people’s minds’? We also momentarily return to last week’s Social Media conversation. All this and slightly less on this week’s show.

This week on our 100th episode I am joined by Barry Gentleman, Matt Barton and Richard Harkness as we go over the weeks Apple and tech related news. 

We look back at our first episode from three years ago before turning our attention to the modern day social media issues. Apple hires to develop the Apple TV and warn users of iOS 32bit apps that the end is nigh. Finally some iPhone 8 rumours surface along with an expensive price tag...apparently. 

Production Note: Apologies once again for any audio issues this week. My audio failed big time and I had to go back and record my own stream  after the fact, still, we all learn from our mistakes.

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers, Dean Murphy (creator of the Crystal Adblock App) and Mr. BritishMac himself, Will Green as we go over the weeks Apple related news. 

Apple is still in the money and the iPhone is selling well, confounding the analysts once again. Is the Apple Watch in a market all of its own? AirPods get a silent but, for Karl anyway, effective update, however can you get hold of them anywhere and Wi-fi calling comes to Three (thankfully). 

Will’s Pick: Hampstead

Production Note: Apologies for some of the audio sounding a little hot at times. We were plagued by connection issues that resulted in the need to manually recover and process the recording.

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and we go over the weeks Apple related news. Apple releases updates across the board and we look ahead to what iOS 10.3 has in store for us, including a new file system. Developers will finally be able to reply to reviews in the App Store. Possible modular add-ons are coming to the Apple Watch. AudioBooks deal comes to and end and Star Trek fans can finally enjoy Amazon’s Echo….OK Computer.

This week we have a full house as Barry Gentleman, Matt Barton, Ric McCorriston and Dean Murphy (Creator of Crystal AdBlock) all drop by. Among other things we discuss the iPhone turning 10 years old, plus the iPhone OS we might have got and how the phone changed mobile communications, as well as it’s continuing influence today.

Production Note: Apologies if the audio is a bit under par this episode. We had some technical issues with Ric and Matt both loosing connectivity mid show. Due to how I record the show I wasn't even sure I could salvage the audio. You may notice me start to panic a little half way through. Thanks for your understanding.

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and Alex G. Fox as we look ahead to what Apple might have in store for us during 2017. Shhhhhh….Actually, we have no clue really so we just pontificate about what we would 'like' to see Apple do within the next twelve months.

This week on our second festive show for this festive period I am joined by our former News RoundUp Reported and my old podcasting buddy, Missy!
