Awesomecast 252: Apple and the Pretty Hate Machine

WWDC 2015 - AwesomeCastThis week on Awesomecast 252, we talk awesome things in technology, including:

  • We’ll be talking a lot about #Apple on today’s show with Chilla and AJ – and they’re IN STUDIO enjoying some Slice on Broadway pizza!
  • Checking out OS X El Capitan.
  • We’re watching AJ teaching Sorg the magic of “apple + spacebar” command.  It’s magical.
  • Did you know Google Photos is searchable by date?
  • Is touchscreen on the horizon for Apple computers?  Currently there is a third party option, but Chilla thinks it’s coming from IOS soon.
  • IOS has new features in notes.  Like Evernote?  IOS has took note.  El Capitan updates will make notes more useful.
  • Apple Maps will be integrating transit schedules.  Will you still use Google Now or another transit app?
  • This looks like a clean-up year for IOS.  And, it will be glorious once the kinks get fixed.
  • Swift is now 2.0 and opensource!
  • IOS and Mac developer programs are now the same, and include Apple Watch development.
  • Ever notice your apps are huge with all the platform assets for all the things? Apps will pull for what platform you’re actually using.
  • Thing we just learned:  3GS replacements were still a thing until recently.
  • Shout out to everyone who has all the preinstalled iPhone apps you never use in a folder just taking up space.
  • Talking about Apple Watch pairing process.
  • News outlets can register their RSS feed on Apple News to provide content for the Apple Watch.
  • Articles without ads?  #AppleNews is utilizing a FlipBoard approach for their news app.  live.sorgatronmedia.com
  • Siri gets more #GoogleNow and #swiperight functionality. live.sorgatronmedia.com
  • Native watch apps will help Apple Watch speed, and that’s just one of the updates on the horizon.
  • Battery life in Apple Watch is pretty decent. Chilla approves.
  • Smart folks at #Apple have a nightstand mode for Apple Watch.  It stretches the time to a sideways view so it is legible – on a nightstand.
  • Mid June expectation for in-store purchase of Apple Watch.  If you didn’t pre-order yours, there’s hope!
  • Dre and Trent Reznor – Apple folks – as in, they work with Apple.  #PrettyHateMachine
  • Public betas of OS – a thing Apple is doing.  How do you think this is going to go over with the masses?
  • SHIFT KEY IS FIXED! #AppleUpdate
  • Smaller updates = less space to run IOS.  #GoodJobApple
  • Apple made an Android app “Move to IOS” – transfers your Android over to an IOS phone.  Free apps get downloaded.  Pay apps go to wishlist.
