    Far Out Speculation

    Far Out Speculation

    After hosting last week, Mark returns to join Alan, Steve and Karl to speculate about what Apple might announce next week. Obviously, there will be iPhones and Apple Watches, but what else might make the mix? AirPods Pro 2, iPad Pro M2, HomePod 2…basically many things with a 2 in them? Well, only a few more days until we know, until then let the speculation run riot. All this, and slightly more, on this week’s episode.

    Far Out Man

    Far Out Man

    Once again Mark slides into the hosting chair and is joined by Alan, Steve and Barry. Apple has announced their next ‘Far Out’ event coming next month so that gives us something to look forward to, as well as our upcoming London meet-up. Alan is a little concerned about his battery readings. Apple plans to add more ads, apparently, they now think they are Google. TikTok is spying on your keystrokes, who would have thought it and, thank heavens there’s a Ming-Chi Kuo rumour. All this, and slightly more, on this week’s episode.

Apple for lads & lasses!!!!

It’s been said before; a funny and informative British perspective on all things Apple. News, reviews and honest opinions.
I’ve not been paid for this ***** review but I do have them to thank for my new AirPods Pro, by highlighting the recall programme. Thanks
Keep up the great show lads 🤪
PS I’m a girl (Karl 😆)

Sets the gold standard for Apple Tech Podcasts

Brilliant, funny, insightful, balanced and packed full of Apple tech talk. This UK based Apple Podcast sets the gold standard in content, production and entertainment.

The team each bring their own slice of experience : Alan’s beta testing adventures, Deans dev background, Steve’s retail knowledge, Karl’s encyclopaedic detail of beer, curry and all things smart home plus Mark’s amusing ‘One foot in the Grave’ bad luck anecdotes. It all combines into an hour of top tech talk between a group of good friends which is a pleasure to listen to.

I needed to leave a review

I have enjoyed this show for some time now and the latest show was especially good as Mark was in Cardiff which is my closest city so it made me laugh.

The guys have been asking for reviews for awhile now but as I use a different podcast app I have had to log onto my Mac just to leave this review so they don’t play that music at the end.

In all seriousness it’s a great show and worth the listen.
