Are you an Apple Fanboy?

We start off the show with a Round Table introduction as usual:



The question of the night is “Are you an Apple Fanboy?”



Sanj Sukerkar – @genesysdesign



Not in the slightest… Android all the way.



Bonnie Sainsbury – @bsainsbury



She has nothing against Apple… if you like inferior technology



People have tried to convert her to Apple but have failed miserably because she doesn’t like being forced to do things their way.



Margaret Reynolds – @bc_insurancegal



Margaret prefers Android for a number of reasons. She used to use an iPhone and switched to Android and has been much happier since then.



Andrew McGivern – @podcasthero



Andrew is not an Apple fanboy but also isn’t a Google Fanboy either.



Andrew, despite not being an Apple fanboy decides to take the play the role of the Apple Fanboy because all of our regular Apple Fanboys are not at today’s Bunker Project show.



Only Andrew watched the Keynote (through TWIT due to not having an iOS device or MAC to watch it).



Andrew asks the group what they think about Apple limiting the live Keynote to Apple devices and browsers?



The consensus is it was a bad move to limit it to existing customers. Margaret believes it is rude to force the use of their own devices. Andrew said perhaps they do this to restrict access due to bandwidth issues. Even with the live stream being limited to Apple Devices they crashed the stream.



Sanj brings up Steve Jobs thanked Bill Gates for saving Apple with a cash injection back in the day. And the fan boys were booing during that announcement.



We talk about Windows 8 and why it got bad reviews and press.



Do people expect too much from new tech products? How much innovation can there be each time?



The battery life is apparently great.



The camera looks like it kicks butt.



Andrew finds iOS to be a little more stable than Android. The rest of the crew don’t agree.



Tim Cook said that Android is like Europe… it is actually made up of a whole bunch of different things. We talk about whether we should be comparing hardware sales by manufacturer or Operating System market share.



We talk about the iPhone camera technology.



Bonnie brings up the new Samsung Edge which has a screen on the side of the phone. We talk about whether that is useful or not.



Has Apple invented anything?



Bonnie said there is a guy that will give you $100 000 if you can prove that Apple truly invented anything.



Everyone agrees that Apple is great at marketing products that they repackage with style and design.



Bonnie doesn’t like when Apple Fanboys take to Social Media to say how much better the iPhone is even though the new features have been on Android for years.



Andrew brings up the point that Apple has less than 20% market share and Google has 80% market share in devices shipped. But Android has only 3% of the podcast consumption. Why?



Apple embraced podcasting early by adding a podcast directory to iTunes. This made podcasts very discoverable on Apple devices (and Windows PC’s with iTunes installed).



Google (with the exception of Google Listen which is now gone) has done nothing to increase podcast discoverability.



Apple made the Podcast App a suggested app with iOS 7 which increased the number of people using the app dramatically. Now with iOS 8 the phone is a native (and can’t be deleted) app. This will increase podcast listening dramatically again!



Bonnie listens to podcasts on the podcasters websites.
