After discussing our weather (as Kevin melts) we move on to how Mike broke his internet to make it better. Telling how his NETGEAR Orbi Home Mesh WiFi System improved his internet he then tells about a weird issues he is having with his wife’s computer.
Then Mike tells about his new purchase a 42 mm Apple Watch GPS which then leads to a discussion about a problem Mike was having. From there we listen to Elisa tell about a problem she is having with the Apple Watch/Messages which morphs in looking at settings and things to do with the watch. Elisa talks a little about the Apple Heart Study.
Getting off to a rough start because of Mike’s internet. We discuss his internet and try to troubleshoot and come up with a solution. We also talk about the weather which makes Mike and Elisa happy. Kevin not so much.
Finally getting to real subjects we show our knowledge (or extreme lack thereof ) about Bitcoin. What’s a bitcoin, how do you get it and how do you use are all questions we still don’t have any answers to.
This week we have a special guest in Elisa’s absence. We had to find someone impressive to fill her shoes and we think we did, by dragging in, sorry we mean welcoming Guy Serle of our sister podcast the MyMac show.
Next we move into Kevin’s rant about the battery life indicator in iOS 11.3 and he calls BS on it. Guy and Melissa talk him back from the edge a bit. Next is Guy’s topic and the discussion on will Apple move to ARM processors in the Mac. Guy explains his thoughts and how he has maybe changed his mind on the topic. We meander around a bit before Melissa brings us back on topic about the Mac Pro and it being not delayed until 2019.
In our picks we start with Guy and he has a choice near and dear to his heart a microphone, Electro-Voice RE320 Vocal and Instrument microphone. Next is Mike with his insatiable need to game on every platform available he chooses the PS 4 Pro for his on Virtual Reality world. Maybe to get away from us. Then Melissa is up next with the new 2018 iPad. Even though she just bought one in November, not that she is bitter about that. Lastly Kevin goes off the technology reservation and chooses a new N-Scale train set from Bachmann, The Empire Builder.
One last thing we round out the show with a plug for the upcoming MacStock 2018 conference were you can meet Guy Serle in person and hug him if you want.
We start out trying to kill Kevin by talking about the weather (Mikey likes it). Then we switch gears to Mike telling about trying to get Alexa in his car (that’s the Amazon Assistant not an actually woman) using the Roav Viva.
We then move on to a discussion of Melissa talking about her experience helping a client buy an iPhone at a Verizon store (it wasn’t exactly pretty). This then morphs into talking about Xfinity and Directv. We end this section talking about phones in general.
After the weather report (which delights Kevin) We stroll down memory lane on TV shows that Elisa and Kevin remember and sing about.
Then Kevin gives a brief update on some of the new gadgets he has acquired since the last time he was on the show.
Next we discuss the main focus of the show how to stream podcasts on your Apple Watch.The trials and tribulations Elisa and Melissa have been going through just figure it out.
We finish up with picks. Melissa says momma needs a NAS and for that she chooses the Synology 2 bay DiskStation. Mike wants to drop his balls, golf balls that is on people so he goes for a drone that has a camera to take photo’s of the area and he picks GoPro Karma with a harness. Don’t ask. Elisa wants to release her inner musician and rock-out with a set of drums so she goes for Drum kit to let her cut lose. Kevin wants to be more of an iOS centric so he goes for a 12.9” iPad Pro 256 GB WiFi model, again.
After the weather report (which mostly sucks unless your Kevin) we get some updates on Elisa’s new iPhone 8 and an end to her iPhoto problems.
Then Elisa says she is going to have her DNA tested which leads to a discussion of how you go about sending your sample in and how Mike might have done it wrong.
And then it’s back to more problems as Melissa has to do some CSI-ing (Computers Stealth Investigating ) as her Macbook is giving some video problems and what she has to do document them and submit them to Apple.
We finish up with picks. Melissa wants a better webcam for video conferencing so she settled on the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 although there is still an Apple iSight camera still available. Then Elisa pulls a last minute switch-a-roo which makes Mike look stupid (so nothing new) and picks MoviePass for watching movies in your local theater. Finally Mike is dreaming of his favorite time of year and chooses a Sorbus Hammock to lounge around outside.
