Simply the best 5by5 podcast

Perfect balance between fanboism and honest judgement of Apple stuff.

Polecam!

To co jest najlepsze w tym podcastcie to niezwykle obiektywne podejście do produktów Apple i innych firm. John Siracusa jest fanem Apple ale jednocześnie zachowuje zdrowy rozsądek i potrafi mocno krytykować swoją ulubioną firmę.

Głębsze spojrzenie na wszystko to co, związane z produktami Apple

To co jest fantastyczne w tym podcaście od 5by5 to umiejętność Johna Siracusa (bez "z") głębszego i bardziej precyzyjnego spojrzenia na zagadnienia które dotyczą porduktów Apple i związanych z tym technologii.

Co tak naprawdę ARC znaczy dla developera Apple?
Czy Objective-C okaże się ślepą uliczką dla Apple?
Czemu w nowych telewizorach wszystko wygląda jak tania opera mydlana?

Wydaje Ci się że te pytania nie są ciekawe, a na pewno nie mają ciekawych odpowiedzi? Siracusa opowie o każdym geekowskim temacie w taki sposób że zainteresuje każdego.
