In what was a train-wreck of a show, Drew Pritchford joins us in discussing what we think we will see next week at Apple’s WWDC. We discuss, the normal rumors, such as why Apple bought Beats. Then we switch gears and talk about some real out there rumors like the smart home, and iwatch. We try to figure out if actual products will be announced or is this a software year.
We are joined today by famed rumor prognosticator Drew Pitchford to discuss what happened today. Is free software enough to tempt people onto Apple saying that you only have to buy the hardware? After we argue the merits of free software, we dive into the commitment to ship a new mac pro in 2013. Chaim breaks down that he is happy that old hardware has been given a breath of fresh air. Finally we discuss iPads.
Have you guys heard about these “tablet” things that are all the rage, because we’ve certainly never discussed them before. Listen as we wax poetic on the new Microsoft Surface Pro, how it stacks up against Apple’s new 128 GB iPad, and answer the question: Does anyone really need that much space?
Yes. Finally, we remember Dell still exists for all of five seconds before moving onto something more interesting.
