045 – I’m drawing a blank

The iPad needs a home server for long running tasks, if only there was some kind of mini Mac we could use, we discuss Raspberry Pi and some potential money saving configurations. Pencils over Keyboards. We discuss our media consumption habits as we grow up. We can’t even force ourselves to finish Planet of The Apps but Apple are going to spend 1 Billion dollars on more original programming next year.

045 – I’m drawing a blank

044 – Live and Dangerous!

It’s a beautiful sunny day and we’re live (not really) from the Wickham Tap in Limerick, a new pub from the Galway Bay Brewery. Dave is preparing a talk on Swift Enums and Thomas is half-heartedly Swifting on the server. After two and a half years Apple Pay has finally arrived at our bank and we use it to purchase copious quantities of beer! Thomas bought another vintage Apple keyboard and AirPods to drown out the sound of the mechanical keyboard. Baz bought the new 10.5″ iPad Pro with the Pencil and Smart Keyboard, we talk about his experience running it on iOS 11.We talk about the tradeoffs of buying new Apple devices vs. waiting it out. We give a six month update on our Amazon Echos and pronounce the death of Siri. Baz and Dave (2007, Canadian Guy) Links Paint it Back (Picross Game) What’s making us happy Thomas – 16 albums!

044 – Live and Dangerous!

043 – Crank the Handle

We walk through a different kind of dongle hell, adding bluetooth to a car stereo and end up going all the way back to tapes, vinyl and digital distribution. iPhone 8 rumours abound as Qualcomm debuts their through-screen fingerprint scanner, we wonder how big and expensive it’ll be. Baz informs us that you can get little hands on your fingers so you can have little hands on your fingers. We talk about the lack of WWDC video we’ve watched, and Thomas dives into server-side Swift! We discuss caching strategies and load testing. We get REALLY angry at Planet of The Apps and abandon equanimity because of Jessica Alba and her equity.
