This episode is all about SEGA, so get ready for some deep cuts. I don't know much about consoles in general so we have a special guest that knows this stuff and, can speak proper English. We get shamed on this one while we cover most of SEGA hardware history and arguably some of its best games.
Our take on Apple peripherals. We try to argue that the Magic Mouse shouldn't support gestures and that using a mouse a trackpad and a keyboard simultaneously makes more sense. Then we get lost on the rabbit hole of other mice and accessories like Thunderbolt peripherals. We end up time traveling and looking to the future using voice and movement recognition as an interface. It could be a parallel universe, so we give no guarantee on our predictions.
I complain that I haven't paid enough for Pocket Casts in return from all I got over the years. Overcast excellent advertising solution. Some of the apps that we lost and why we wish we could do more to support others (Reeder, we love you). The perceived difference between buying digital versus physical goods. Our opinions on pay to upgrade or subscription models and why we all lose for not adequately compensating developers.
Everything you wanted to know about macOS High Sierra. It's not really everything, just the parts that were announced in the WWDC2017 keynote. If we're going to be honest, it's mostly that but we skipped some things that we didn't care for. However, that just makes the conversation better and that's the story we're sticking with.
Derailed by a bad Internet connection and lost audio, we have a long pre-show talk and the most meandering conversation yet. We had fun and hope you will too.
We cover topics like how we listen to podcasts, why we changed the podcast name, the history of macOS X names and our suggestions. Diogo brags about his climbing skills, we tell the awesome story of the Mac Mini Macro and getting lost with Apple Maps.
In keeping with our tradition of confusing names and saying silly things without noticing, we talk about the new MacBook Pro relative and absolute cost, Diogo's refusal to jump ship to a Windows machine and my satisfaction with the AirPods while trying to convince him to choose the PowerBeats instead.
