After we talk about the weather Melissa tells about her experience about getting her MacBook fixed and Elisa tells about her iPad battery which then lead to a discussion about Apple Care and extended warranties.
This week we discuss Mike’s new Google Home Hub and compare it to the Amazon Echo Show. Mike says the Home Hub makes a really good picture frame (that’s not an insult, really). From there we talk about what we want in a digital assistant then on to different music services.
After we decide whether or not we like the weather (we don’t) we discuss the new Mojave update to MacOS. Mike is the only one who has updated but personally it’s kind of a mixed bag for him (your mileage may vary). Then Elisa wants to know if the Apple Watch knows you’re in a moving car (we’re not sure).
After that we move on to our picks. Melissa finds a nice little band for the Apple Watch. Then Elisa has a Lego Advent Calendar. Finally Mike thinks he finds a solution to his problem until he realizes he doesn’t but still thinks the Netreset Smart Power Recycler is a solution for some people.
This week we explore our likes and dislikes of IOS 12 and WatchOS 5. Melissa warns about the Apple Podcast app filling her Apple Watch. Elisa discusses her problem with Messages syncing between her iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch. Mike talks about his frustration with the transition from Workflow to the Shortcuts app.
For our picks Melissa needs to relax so she picked the MSPA Bubble Spa. Since it play money Elisa thought she needed a new phone but not any phone but iPhone XS Max 256 GB. Since Mike is getting older he decided he needs a bigger iPad so he went with the 12.9 in. iPad Pro.
We start off by having Mike and Elisa lamenting the end of summer. They then move on to lamenting the end of Apple printing service. They discuss some possible alternatives and the experiences with other services.
The topic changes to the upcoming Apple event and what has been said about and what they think might come out of it and if there’s anything that we are hoping for.
From there we move on to picks. Elisa wants to spin some vinyl and want to broadcast it around the house so she picks the Vinyl Pro Set by Sonos. Next Mike wants to spin some dirt so he picked the Troy-Bilt Rototiller.
It’s just Elisa and Mike so we start off talking about the weather and then move on to what we did while we on Summer Vacation. From there we talk about Mike’s various Amazon Echo devices. Starting with the Echo Show me move on to the Spot and then Fire tablet. We then talk about various things we use our devices for.
