Essential Apple Podcast 116: “Simply having a wonderful Christmas time…”

This week Apple Music started working on Amazon Echo devices (well if you live in the US anyway). Apple Pay arrived in Germany, and Apple announced a $1 billion investment in Austin, Texas, for a new campus (plus a lot of other US expansion). App developers got some extra analytics from the Mac App Store and Apple backed a move for a US Digital Privacy Law. Meanwhile I am joined by Oliver Breidenbach of Boinx Software and Nick Riley to talk about all that and more as we decide we’re “simply having a wonderful Christmas time…”

Essential Apple Podcast 95: Chaos meets Bad Planning

Well this week the news was all about rumours… From the ones you and I could come up with through to the frankly fanciful. But we tend not to do rumours on this show, so I am having none of that. Instead I have Oliver Breidenbach of Boinx and Guy Serle from the MyMac Show and we discuss MIMO Live, Tim Berners-Lee being “devastated” by the state of the web. Mojave, Betas and more.
