September 28, 2013 — Kyle Wiens, Daniel Eran Dilger, and Bryan Chaffin

Kyle Wiens, from iFixit, will tell you all about his company’s tear-down of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, and you’ll learn what it’s made of, and how difficult it is for you to service it yourself. You’ll also get a comparison with other smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

Once again, we’ll present cutting-edge commentator Daniel Eran Dilger, from Roughly Drafted Magazine and AppleInsider, again reveals some of the “bozo” comments from the tech media about why they regard record sales for the new iPhones as bad news. Yes, I’m serious; that’s what they’ve been saying.

You’ll also hear from Bryan Chaffin, co-founder and co-publisher of The Mac Observer, who will talk about the new iPhones, and the incredibly popular iOS 7 upgrade.

September 21, 2013 — Rik Myslewski and Dann Berg

The irrepressible Rik Myslewski, Managing Editor for The Register, a UK-based “snarky” tech publication, and a long-time observer of Apple Inc., discusses the advances in the iPhone 5s, including 64-bit support, plus state-of-the-art developments in the chip industry.

You’ll also hear from Dann Berg, Reviews Editor for The Verge, who will consider the recent efforts by Google and Microsoft to deliver a vertical solution to building new gear that is similar to Apple’s. So we have Google’s purchase of Motorola Mobility in 2011, and the recent announcement that Microsoft was acquiring the mobile handset division of Nokia. He’ll also give you his early reactions to iOS 7, the major upgrade to Apple’s mobile OS.

September 7, 2013 — Adam Engst and Kirk McElhearn

We cover the new Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Is this a keeper, or another pathetic attempt to jumpstart a market that has yet to show potential? We’ll also cover the possibly desperate decision of Microsoft to acquire Nokia’s handset division. Will this move help the failing Windows Phone mobile OS gain a decent share of the smartphone market?

Along to discuss these issues are Adam Engst, of TidBITS and Take Control Books, who will also talk about a compelling eBook his company just published, entitled “Take Control of Your Online Privacy.” We’ll also be joined by Macworld’s “iTunes Guy,” Kirk McElhearn.
