Obviously we talk about what happened at WWDC. We bring in Drew Pitchford again to help us analyze the developer side of WWDC.
We’ve all played a little Xbox, but how many of you ever got your hands on a Zune, or a Kin? Microsoft’s getting back into the hardware game with the Surface tablet and on episode 63 of inThirty we get into, about, and under the soon to be released device. We talk pricing, features, make predictions on future market share, and add to the overall confusion about the two different versions of Windows, RT and 8, that’ll run on this new entrant to the tablet market.

On episode 60 of inThirty we investigate the disappearance of hundreds of iPhone 5 users – apparently the new Apple Maps app is to blame for sending them off course. With the help of special guest Stephen Hackett of 512Pixels.net, we dig into the new Maps in iOS 6 and figure out that while its Flyover feature can make you feel like Super Man, it leaves a lot of users longing for Google’s more down to earth Street View. Chaim and Harry take turns giving their take on turn by turn directions and Chaim reveals that he’s always on time since he uses Google Now on his Galaxy Nexus, and Harry says who needs transit directions in Maps on iOS 6, he’s memorized the rail schedules anyway. Our thanks to Stephen for lending some southern comfort to the debate.
