We start out with Mike’s impressions of Apple TV and The Morning Show followed by a discussion of Apple’s services and some possible predictions for the future. From there we talk about some of our apps we use.
After a discussion about the weather (of course) we compare notes about online banking and e-bills. From there we move on to Mike and Melissa expound on their adventure to cut the cord. Next Mike tells about his new iPhone 11 Max Pro and his ordeal of upgrading his one Mac Mini to Catalina.
It’s just Mike and Melissa this time around. First Mike complains about his sudden snow storm that he had. Next Melissa discusses her AT&T iPhone buying experience and Mike gives his first impressions of the new iPhone 11 Pro Max that he got. Melissa gives her experiences with Apple Arcade, then Mike tells of his ordeal of upgrading 2 of his Mac Minis to Catalina. He’s at a 50% success rate. Finally Mike gives a short plug for Megan Phelps Roper’s new book “Unfollow”.
In this episode we start out talking about the newest hardware from Amazon. From some Alex wearables to new or improved Echo hardware there was lots to talk about. From there we moved on to discussing IOS 13/iPadOS. We listed some of the pluses and minuses of the new release along with a little on podcast testing.
Elisa is gone this week so it’s just Mike and Melissa talking about servers. First Mike tells about the Tonido server he uses to access file from outside the house and share files with other people. Then he tells about using a Plex server to organize his photos, movies and Tv collection. Melissa then compares that to Apple TV.
As usual this week we start off talking about the weather but this must have angered the weather gods because Elisa got knocked off the podcast shortly afterwards due to power failure. But Mike and Melissa soldier on talking about password managers, specifically 1Password and Lastpass. They discuss prices, features and ease of use.
