inThirty 141 – iMessage

Everyone was busy, so Chaim had to find a substitute. I called on my Security:inThirty cohost, Tom, to come on and help me do the show. Today we discuss the iMessage problems that are plaguing iphone to Android converts.

Taming Mountain Lion

Roar. No, really, roar! The king of the hill, Mountain Lion has arrived and we throw him some fresh meat. Harry suggests that the Apple halo glows a little bit brighter since the latest OS X feline brings more of iOS to the desktop. Justin, on the other hand, worries the halo might be on the path towards becoming a noose: people are getting locked in to Apple hardware through its exclusive ties to iCloud. And, this cat’s got Chaim by the tongue. He’d considering wearing the halo (or slipping on the noose) and switching away from Android to get that seamless Apple experience. Special guest Kelly Guimont helps us weigh in on iMessage, Gatekeeper, AirPlay, and the best way to skin a cat.
