#AppleEvent preview, Android goes to eleven, and Amazon Halo RNIB Tech Talk

    • Technology

Plundering porpoises! The good ship Tech Talk sets sail once more, thank you for being aboard!

On today's episode we welcome back a salty ol' sea-dog to the show... Tim Schwartz is here! Last heard on these particular airwaves on episode 266, Tim returns to turn the tricky threesome into the fearless foursome... or something like that. We catch up with what Tim's been up to, and try not to get too deep into either fires, American politics or the pandemic.

This week, Cap'n Scott and his first mates talk Apple (surprise surprise...) now, the radio show and the podcast both come out a few hours before the big #AppleEvent planned for Tuesday 15th, so anyone listening to this show after that date, well.. you know what has been revealed, whilst we're stuck in the past! But the guys have a good crack at discussing the predicted hardware... possibly a new phone, possibly a new tablet... possibly new glasses?! But more likely... just the phone. Of course Steven's going to buy all of it anyway.

And just because we like fair and balanced coverage, we're also chatting about Android 11... it's one louder! Five points to you if you get that reference. Steven runs down all the expected new bits and bobs, and Andy bemoans the fact that his Huawei smartphone probably wont get this update for years, by which time his upgrade will be due, and he'll probably have ditched them. Maybe he'll see HarmonyOS before Android 11 though! 

Also up for discussion this week: Amazon Halo, and all kinds of blackmail they'll force on you once they have your naked body in photographs, football World Cup Finals, audio ducking, being clean shaven, A Lady and podcasts, The Simpsons, Whining noises, Downloading books that are recorded across multiple CD's, Kit Kats, whining noises which aren't emanating from Steven, and Non-Smart TV's.

As we sail off to the lands of Valinor (again, another five points if you get that reference), the only thing left is to thank you for listening! Keep your wonderful emails coming in, especially those that give praise to Andy, he deserves it all... is it obvious who writes these show notes? ;) Blistering barnacles!
