    Episode 349: iPhone 16, AI, and Netflix

    Apple is expecting big iPhone 16 sales, at least based on the number of chips its ordering for the upcoming device. Dave has some questions about the new iPhone that will determine which one he buys. Apple is getting an OpenAI Board Observer Role as part of its deal with OpenAI and Netflix is phasing out its cheapest ad-free plan.

    Episode 348: AI, Mac RAM debate, new iCloud options

    This week, Dave and I talk more about AI, including some thoughts from Dave on improvements to make Siri work better for everyday tasks. We also look at rumors Amazon will charge for the AI version of Alexa. There is an ongoing debate on how much RAM the new Apple Silicon Macs need to run all of its tasks, and a new iCloud option allows users to keep certain files allows downloaded to their devices.

    Episode 347: Apple AI, MacBook, and iPhone 15 Pro

    Apple rolled out its AI strategy at WWDC this month. Dave and I take a look at that, as well as, a look at what Siri will be able to do, and what it won't do at launch. There are rumors of a new M4 MacBook Pro, which makes sense since Apple just released an iPad with the same chip. The requirements for Apple's new AI strategy calls for an iPhone 15 Pro, which leaves a lot of older iPhone users out in the cold.

    Episode 346: Justin Long, Apple AI, and Netflix

    Justin Long is in the news again, this time doing commercials for Qualcomm. Apple is still in the news for uts rumored AI releases at WWDC, but this time it's for a partnership with Sam Altman and OpenAI to make Apple's AI actually work.

    Episode 345: Eyes, iPad Pro M4, and iOS 18

    Dave and I talk about his upcoming eye surgery that just scares the hell out of me. We also talk about Dave's trip to an Apple Store to try out the new iPad Pro M4. Dave even figured out something the Apple employees didn't know how to do—I'm not surprised, he's a very smart man. Then we look at some of the rumors coming out about Apple's iOS 18 surrounding AI features and Siri.

A sound program :)

The show is always enjoyable. Jim is a kick, and has really interesting guests. If I had anything that I wish could be different, I think the audio level could be evened out a bit. (Jim can get to sounding really soft and distant, maybe 10dB or more down from the guest.) Other than that, keep up the good work!

Good God! Get rid of Dave Mark

Another update on this beclowned podcast. When will Jim jetison this Dave Mark. Today he went on and on about the Baltimore bridge collapse with an emotional overprint. What does this have to do with Apple? I don’t care what this joker thinks about the bridge just because you drove over it a few times. I keep coming back to this podcast hoping has either removed the Dave Mark infestation or at least reined him in. I just get angry. I want to hear from Jim, but he just lets the other guy just drone on. Please fix this. What does Jim see in this flaming emotional leftist?
Several years ago I reviewed this podcast and commented on the loquacious Dave Mark. He speaks about 95% of the time, leaving poor Jim in the dust. Why does he just keep talking? He is not very interesting. His topic selection needs work. Why doesn’t Jim rein him in? Dave Mark just goes on and on, especially when talking about what TV shows he is watching. He must spend his whole day watching TV. He must do no actual work. Who has time for such indulgence? Good God! Who cares what he is watching. What does that have to do with Apple. The man should try not saying “Um” so frequently and please keep your political views out of the podcast. This is a tech podcast. Jim - get a new partner. Dave Mark is insufferable and I am always angry when the podcast finishes. Also, no hockey talk ever again. I only skip over it.

Jim endures his idiot friend’s uninformed opinions

Knowledgeable Apple superuser and pundit Jim Dalrymples weekly conversation with his friend - who couldn’t be less knowledgeable or experienced. Jim is 5/5. Dave is 0/5. Seriously, Dave just rambles on about things he has read about but has no experience with - or worse - has failed to dig into with any effort. So basically this clown just reads headlines about things and then spouts off random incorrect things. If you have any background knowledge about the topic you’ll be pulling your hair out at how stupid and uninformed he is. I have absolutely no idea why Dalrymple continues to waste time with him. I know I don’t anymore. Sorry Jim. Get smarter friends.
