With Dave on vacation it is a chance for Justin to have the show be all about him. Thankfully Paul Shadwell was on hand to keep him honest and rein him in a little when he dared to get out of hand.

Latency and the Cloud

Paul expands on the post and tells how the ping is to the network card and that there could be issues with the server that the ping will not show because of that.

The boys forego any semblance of structure and talk about the anything they can find on their Evernote. Enjoy !

Financial results for 2Q 2011: busted the analysts expectations once again.

PS- Should have noted that iPad2 sales were not up to scratch but when you have "the mother of all backlogs" to fill, putting some of that $66bn cash mountain to use helps.

News:

Preview app in Lion will act as Word, Excel, PowerPoint viewer: So now it becomes the jack of some more trades :-) .

Gruber- iOS location storing is a bug, getting fixed in future iOS update : Fix this fast Cupertino as this could get messy quickly. Do believe this is an oversight though, not a Big Bro situ in any way.

Rumor- iPhone 5 Gets Tapered Design, Larger Screen, Gesture-Sensitive Home Button? : And it will drive you to work in the morning too :-)  . Rumours, ya gotta love 'em

Yum iMac Coffee Table an Innovative Form of Computer Recycling : This is a really cool example of practical recycling ...... for five grand a pop.

Other Order of Business:

Games, EA Sales Drop: Did everybody go for these instead of Easter eggs ?

Simplenote & nvALT : Have used 'em to write up these shownotes on Mac & iPad. This is a perfect combo up there with Riggs & Murtagh or Laurel & Hardy :-)

The boys get up to the usual tomfoolery as the review the news while Justin speaks about catching the early worm ( or something like that :-) ). So sit back and indulge for your listening pleasure.

News:

Growth of iOS : A new survey from MobileMix with charts galore showing the ongoing march of the iOS platform especially with the introduction of the iPhone4 to the Verizon network. Even though Android still has majority of the market individual companies that licence Android only hold about 3% of the market on average while iOS owned by Apple only has 31% of impressions.
Would be curious to see how many Verizon iPhones have been activated and could this stymie the Droid's growth in future.

Future of Mac Design : The hiring of Kevin Kenney who is a composites engineer by Apple who has been advising them on the use of carbon composite materials in prototype devices. The guy also has expertise in the supply chain area but don't think that your are gonna see an iBike in the next Tour de France

Begun the 3D Wars have: Pretty cool demo that uses the front facing camera on an iPad2 ( also could work on iPhone/iPod Touch) and with some software wizardry tracks your face and generates in this case a 3d UI. Pretty cool vid to check out at end of article.

David

Moov: An Israeli start up that have created a case for iPhone4 that you put it into in order to wirelessly send video to your HDTV.

Justin

Lifestyle Changes: The Just gets up earlier in the morning to catch the early worm. Would you take on this lifestyle & what would you do with all those worms ? You could write a book too :-)

Other order of business:

Escape from the Flash: Yes, folks finally we can stop being the guys throwing stones in the glasshouse and state that our site is now HTML5 ready for audio and video with new Wordpress plugin. That worked after Justin changed some of the site's plumbing to make it play nice, if a person is using Chrome, Safari or other HTML5 compliant browser. Otherwise it defaults to Flash if you visit with an older browser, but the question then would be... WHAT'S UP WIT DAT ?

This week, the boys after a little absence from the podcast waves decide to return with a vengeance to discuss all things Apple and also whether or not a certain sync service which I believe should allow you to go pants-less could take off in a big way could take off (pardon the pun) due to two services in particular being built on top of it. Also, one D Shortle talks about his new Pad.

So sit back all you fans & enjoy the craic.

News:

Nokia patent case : Basically, Nokia have been caught with their pants around their ankles here as the International Trade Commission side with Apple over the alleged breach of five Nokia patents. After this ruling they decided to make a complaint about six more. C’mon Espoo, where is the love ?
(Espoo is the location of Nokia’s HQ for those not au fait :-) )

Sidestep Automatically Secures Your Mac’s Connection on Unsecure Networks : Wow, this app is most useful for all those who insist on doing their online banking on public Wi-Fi networks. Creates a secure tunnel to a proxy server of your choosing, It’s free and OSX only.

iWeb for iPad : Suppose they may as well join the party since Garageband & iMovie are already there. All aside though this is a pretty cool patent of iOS version of app that allows you to easily create websites & blogs. Wonder if this will be introduced at WWDC along with news of free hosting at the new North Carolina data centre ? Does give another arrow for the bow of iPad now becoming an even more powerful content creation device.

GarageBand update : This was to make sure that it plays nice with projects created on the iPad version of this truly amazing app.

Discussion n’ Impression:

Dave takes the plunge for the (i)Pad : What can I say folks, I really love this iPad2 & discussed with Justin how I purchased the last one in Wexford Town to what apps I’m running (mainly games) on this new device. Love it’s thin n’ light profile, the amazing speed (try running “Infinity Blade” on it ) & battery life. This is replacing my MacBook Pro as my portable computer of choice. Also kicked a Póg Mo Thóin in here regarding the RTE News Now iPad app UI (home section- it’s like a sliding puzzle! ) compared to how the Sky News app UI has been designed (way slicker) .

PS- The iPad version of RTE News Now is nowhere to be found in App Store (what’s going on here now? ..hmmm)

Interesting Apps Found:

Real Racing 2 HD: Not alone is this app a showcase for showing the graphical muscle of your new iPad 2, it also is due for an update from it’s developer Firemint (creator of the awesome Flight Control) that will allow you to output the game’s graphics to your shiny 1080P TV via the iPad2 HDMI connection. However, it will allow you to show race telemetry independently on your iPad which you also use to steer your car onscreen, this is big as up to now mirroring your iPad display to TV was only known about. Being able to independently display other items on you iPad2 display such as controls could lead eventually to home consoles being replaced by your iPad2 or iPhone5 (presuming it gets A5 chip).

Pixelate 2.0: This is an iOS app that allows your iOS device with a camera to change the colour of let’s say the wall in your bedroom virtually to see how it will look. It can produce the same kind of magic on clothing but no flesh colours now.

The next two apps take advantage by building on top of my favourite pants-less syncing service Drop Your Jocks Dropbox

Dropvox: An iOS app that allows you to record voice memos or maybe interviews if you like and store them in your Dropbox account, it’s a really simple but effective app for the function it is carrying out.

Frenzy: This is an OSX only app that resides in your menubar and effectively allows you to create your own private social network that you are in control of not Facebook. This is an innovative use of the Dropbox service & their API’s.

Dave's App of the Week

  • Appshopper Free in App Store- Decided to go meta this week & make my pick an app that keeps an eye on the App Store for any apps that get reduced in price or become free (spin your head wouldn't it). Really like the layout of this app & latest update allows you to do a (originally) Tweetie like pull down to refresh list action.

Hi MacCraic'ers , this week the boys give their take on the Apple event that took place on Wed 02/09/10 & proceed to have a little disagreement about a certain magical entertainment box. So sit back & listen to the fireworks going off:

News

Apple Music Event

iPod Shuffle: The buttons made a return, it's 18% bigger with shuffle function. Voiceover function (with a button) is carried over from 3rd gen model, it comes in 5 beautiful colours 2GB of storage for the princely sum of $/€49

iPod Nano: Clickwheel has now gone, being replaced by a 1.9inch square touchscreen with accelerometer but it's not running iOS (though it looks like it does). As a result, it is 30% smaller and it looks like it could fit on your wrist as a watch as it come also with a clip-on like the shuffle (nano case makers at the ready :-) ). It comes in same colours as shuffle in 2 models- 8 & 16GB for €/$149 & €/$179 with a shake to shuffle feature,Nike+ & radio (pause up to 15mins)- but the camera is gone unlike previous gen model.

iPod Touch: The 4th gen comes in 3 models- 8, 32 & 64GB for €/$229 €/$299 & €/$399 respectively. Like the iPhone4 this model contains the Retina Display, A4 processor, a front (for Facetime) & rear facing camera that takes both photos + 720P vids (don't expect the camera to be as good the the iPhone's though), microphone & gyroscope. It also has only 256mb RAM unlike the 512mb on the iPhone4.

AppleTV: Otherwise known as "one more hobby", this entertainment box can now fit in the palm of your hand, has come down to $99/€119. It runs on the A4 processor which also suggests that iOS is powering (and we don't mean that performance suffers) it & it now streams content from iTunes as no local storage is available to sync unlike previous model or your can rent content from AppleTV itself to stream. Airtunes has been enhanced to be called Airplay which will now stream video/audio from your iPad (figure iPhone/iTouch also) to Apple TV & will be introduced in iOS 4.2. David has an issue with lack of broader format support in iTunes & AppleTV which Justin does not agree with.

Updates

iTunes10: This was an update which seems to have caused some consternation amongst the faithful due to the icon change (doesn't bug us personally) & "colourless" UI change also ( let's face it iTunes is the UI experimental ground for Apple ), though David had an issue with the Mothership breaching it's own Human Interface Guidelines & resorted to the terminal with a OSX Hints tip to put some manners on the "traffic light" look. Ping the social networking section was introduced though it can't connect with Facebook currently as StevieJ stated "onerous terms" were the issue at moment. iTunes10 broke at moment the use of automator actions but AppleScript remains unaffected. Remember to backup before you download.

As a side note, David's predictions of death to the clickwheel have proved premature as the iPod Classic still lives though has not been updated- guess next year will be the year for this.

The Laptop is alive, well & coming from Cupertino:

Reports are showing that Apple are the only manufacturer who's sales of notebooks are not declining. The lesson to be learned for businesses is- Don't engage in the race to the bottom.

Unseen, Undressed & Uncalled For

This is a new section of the show where a random "mac" story will be picked from a search on Google news & reacted to MacCraic style. This will either be amazing or an epic fail.

Tip of the Week

Adding colour back to iTunes 10

Getting rid of the "Traffic Lights" on iTunes10

Dave's App of the WeekMirror's Edge from EA €4.99 in App Store- Would describe this as a parkour game set in a dystopian future, excellent graphics, controls & gameplay. However, game time completing all levels in game is shorter than I expected but made up for with other modes including Speed Run & beating online times & earning badges (not like in scouts though :-) ).

Justin's Note:   One of the things we did not mention was Apple Care.   Don't buy it from Apple when they try to sell it to you.   You'll get it cheaper if you shop around.   You have one year to purchase and activate it to get the extended warranty and believe me it is worth it.
