Tim returns for a great conversation with David in which they guys discuss Chicago’s Entertainment Tax, Better Touch Tool for Mac OS X, Touch Arcade, Macstock, cool LED lights, Blu Life 8 XL, Braven BRV-Pro speaker, Apple Music, and much more.
This week, Tim is traveling for work again, so David takes the opportunity to break our normal podcast workflow by attempting to do the show completely on his iPad. Topics under discussion include the poor management decisions made by some Tech companies, and a retro look at the Alphasmart Neo.
E3, WWDC 15, and other events that took place over the last two weeks is the focus on the show. We also delve into problems with Tim’s iOS Music App, David’s solo show, who Google and FaceBook actually serve, Apple’s abysmal track record of online services, and much more.
Tim is traveling for work so David’s in lone wolf mode this week, talking up his Apple Watch and dropping the charging cables in favor of some wireless power packs.
Tim finishes (kinda) the mini Arcade! David has an Apple Watch waiting for him to open! Google IO is going on, and keyboards, Amazon shipping, Facebook, and much more are all topics of discussion on this episode of TechFan!
