A weekly news and discussion show about the world of iPhone, iPad, iOS, and mobile web development. Hosted by Marco Arment & Dan Benjamin.
Our series finale.
107: The Eldest Programmer
Dan and Marco discuss testing and logging, formal programming, Core Data versus other datastore techniques, and developers knowing basic terminal operation and server administration.
106: Outlasted The Daily
Dan and Marco discuss the Mac Pro's relevance, the effects of RAM and FileVault on performance, the App Store Volume Purchase discount, how well Instapaper for Android is doing, why The Daily failed, deciding whether articles belong on blogs or in The Magazine, and how to collaborate with a designer when you don't agree with all of their choices.
105: Service Plans for Cables
On this happy Cyber Monday, Dan and Marco discuss journalists mangling quotes, the decline of upgradeable hardware, how to tell if a price is negotiable, why many publications don't take full advantage of Newsstand, protecting assets inside app bundles, and deciding whether to burn an expedited review.
Dan and Marco discuss the upcoming end of the show, Scott Forstall and MC Hammer, Passbook apps and promotion, how to decide when to start a new project, PayPal's subscription problems, and the economics of one-time app payments.
103: Denial Haircut
Dan and Marco discuss music under podcast ads, TextMate 2 activity, the costs of pagination in Instapaper and The Magazine, scientific support of "low-acid" coffee benefits, every cure for male hair loss and baldness, and affiliate-marketing spam.
It's for software engineers, mostly
The conversations between Dan and Marco are like those that I have with fellow software engineers. Sometimes it's technical, sometimes it's design motivations. Sometimes it's even coffee related.
The podcast for developers.
And coffee drinking new fathers.
Glad it's over
Dan Benjamin is an awful host. He usually just takes the podcast on some assinine tangent. Glad the show is over!
