Ay ay ay, iPad 4 – Apple Special Event Commentary

Isn’t every Apple Event special? On Episode 64 (make that 64 bit, we upgraded) of inThirty
Chaim, Harry, and Justin along with guest host Kelly Guimont of TUAW ooh, ahh, and yawn (Chaim) over the announcement of the new iMac and Mac Mini, MacBook Pro 13″ with Retina Display, iPad with Retina Display (don’t call it the iPad 4), and the worth the price of admission all by itself iPad Mini. We start by critiquing the legerdemain used by Phil Schiller when he removed the black cloth from the slim from one perspective, bulbous from another iMac and quickly move on to discuss whether the new Mac Mini is enough to replace the Mac Pro or even the defunct Xserve. We boldly go where no podcast has gone before in our discussion of Apple’s Fusion Drive SDD plus HDD melding tech. And, yes, everyone wants the new 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display – how could the little sibling of the beautiful 15 incher disappoint? Do the non Retina MacBooks deserve to keep their Pro suffix? We discuss. Amongst ourselves. Apple speeds up its upgrade cycle some with the iPad 4, but how long did you expect the Lightning port to be kept away from the iPad? We finish up with a who/what/where/when/why on the iPad Mini and manage to wake Chaim up from his slumber (he uses Apple announcement videos as a sleep aid) in time to compare the new device to his beloved Nexus 7.

Also, Harry Marks strummed us some nice intro and outro licks. Told you we upgraded.
