inThirty 77 – BackBerry


BlackBerry must have heard that we were doing a show today, and decided that they wanted the guys from inThirty to talk about it.  Listen in as we give the best non biased review we can of the armchair quarterbacking you love from Chaim, Harry, and Justin. We discuss if this is a reinvention, or too little too late.  How does the hardware compare to the current crop of smartphones?  Does the keyboard, both virtual and hardware, keep in line with the keyboards RIM err… BlackBerry is known for.  Finally we takle the OS.  Is QNX really worth it?

MoLo, YOLO; Mountain Lion Review

Lucky for us Apple decided to release the dot eight version of OS X to celebrate inThirty’s second year and 52nd episode. Justin likes to live on the edge so he’s been playing with the betas, but Chaim, Harry, and special guest Apple aficionado Drew Pitchford (the guy who correctly predicted Mountain Lion’s release date before any of the rumor sites) finally get the gold version on their machines.

We hunt down the most significant changes in Mountain Lion, give our first impressions of the GUI, compare it to its predecessor Lion, discuss the impact of iOS on Apple’s latest feline-themed desktop release, and all gasp as Harry gives Android credit for a specific feature of Apple’s latest and greatest. We do all that in thirty minutes, woah.

Our respect to Drake for this episode’s title and to Snoop for showing his support of 10.7 by donning the Lion moniker.

Don’t forget to celebrate with us and enter our 1 year anniversary giveaway for a chance to win a copy of the awesome Pocket Casts podcatcher app.
