"Honestly, I guess what I would say is if you can afford it, go for the pro for the sake of, especially if you're going for the M two. Because you got a bigger screen and you get better display technology. And that's what the iPad is. Oh, that's it. I remember. It's this magic keyboard. The difference is the air uses the magic keyboard with the connectors at the bottom, right? Versus this one uses these connectors. Or is it the idea? I think they both have the same connectors. It's so confusing. What is Apple doing? Why are they doing this to me? So GoPro, if you can go pro. Yeah, if you can swing the pro swing pro. But definitely check the refurb store because there's some great options there, including current models, but it looks a bit. So yeah, worth considering. They do have the iPad air in here as well. Make sure you check which generation it is you're buying, and also bonus tip for folks. If you are looking for something that currently isn't in the refurb store, then there's this little website called refurb don't me, where you can sign up for refurb notifications from the Apple store when something comes back to you. Well, that's handy. What a great little tip. Yeah, also works great for this thing is not yet available on the Apple store on the Apple refurb store, but I want to know when it is. So that's what I use it for. All right, then another question we got in from Tony, who writes, I have a question about my iPhone 13 when I'm trying to reply back to a text. I have my earbuds on. I have my Apple watch on, and I ask Siri to respond to a text. It tells me I need to unlock my iPhone first. What am I doing wrong here? I don't know. I think this could be in settings and then we go down to privacy and security. No, no, no. We go down to face ID and passcode. And then you type in your face ID and passcode. And then you scroll down and down at the bottom, there are some options that say allow access when locked. You need to make sure that reply with message is toggled on. So that even if your phone is locked, you are still allowed to reply with a message. That's what I'm guessing is probably the issue here. I suspect that is the case. There is a setting in the notifications area where if you go into settings, notifications, and then under announced notifications, there's reply without confirmation, but that's just if Siri is confident that it's understood what you've now listening to me. It's understood, then it'll just send before kids otherwise it does the thing where it reads back what it thinks you said. And then you go, no, I wasn't talking about Jason Katz. I was talking about something else. Jason cats. Yeah, or Jason Snell, for example. That could be somebody. I will never, I will never trust Siri enough to not have that on. My favorite is when it mispronounces your name, you are frequently Mika. Even though I've told it how to pronounce your name multiple times, you're often Mika.

"You should have put it front, you know, hashtag. Add hashtag sponsor, I think John thought because it wasn't a lot of stock that, oh, it's okay. But all it is is and it's good. It's end to end encrypted group chat. It's like, and then encrypted group chat, not from Facebook, is selling point. Plus AI, I forgot. Plus, listen, I'll tell you. If John hands me, if John pours me a drink, I'm going to drink it. So that's the and that's what a lot of people say, because that's who's in here is all of the Jason Snell, Merlin man, Glenn fleischman. It's all the apple mafia. We're all in there. It's interesting. I like that people are experimenting. The AI integration aside, I think that instant messaging is really stagnated. So I love that somebody is trying to figure out a way to do something that's not iMessage or WhatsApp. Or signal or something. But let me ask you this. I'm an old person, I guess. John mentioned he's like, he's an a bunch of group chats that have hundreds of people in them. Like, I'm in one with my family. People said, who wants that? Right. Some people have this, though. There's people who do this all the time, or that's kind of their social thing instead of a Facebook group. It's a big group messaging chat. That's when you should just open up your own slack channel or your own Discord or something like that, you know? Yeah. I want asynchronous. I don't want people digging my phone. Yeah. Anyway, it's fine. I wish he'd sit up front. Hey, here's something I am an adviser on and I'm getting compensated by. I wouldn't have read what you think a thousand world article

"Yeah, I've never used them, but I think it was Andy, somebody on Mac break weekly is very high praise for all of their stuff. Let me ask our chat room in our because we have a lot of podcasters listening. Oh, that's funny. All that we're saying loop back there. Oh, really? Yeah, I have a Discord. Okay. Well, I love audio hijack. So rogue is right, because that's on the Mac and these are Mac apps. And on the Mac, I think rogue amiba is widely considered to be the best still standing audio guy. I mean, there used to be quite a few that used to be biased sound and so forth and all of them seemed to have disappeared. It's funny because here at twit, we have an incredible team that does so much of the stuff that we need behind the scenes. We don't have to, but I'm on other podcasts outside of the network. And we are all using audio hijack. We're all using rogue amoeba tools for everything that we do. We're all recording with it and using loop back to do what we need to do. So yes, I can vouch for that essentially. I'm the team, because it's me and my co host who used to eat popcorn on the show and I'm like, where are you? I didn't know this, but we're using loop back right now to route our audio. The Zoom audio is through loop back. The other thing I would look at, it's probably overkill, but apple makes an excellent dog, digital audio workstation called logic logic. And it's not expensive. It's 200 bucks for what you get. It's amazing. And I think Jason Snell uses logic. A lot of very serious pro podcasters use logic. It does a whole lot more. I mean, it's really designed for music, album, song creation. But for that price, it's pretty good. For years, when I was doing the editing, so you know how long ago that was. I started using cool edit pro. Everybody in radio used to cool edit pro Adobe bought it and turned it into a program called Adobe audition. That's really more for editing. It's not so much of a mixer, but it's really a superb product. We still use that as well, because we use the whole Adobe Creative Cloud for our editing premiere and all of that. But for mixing, spending a little bit of money, that's okay.

I bought a LEGO orchid flower, which is awesome. Have you all seen those? Do you want to see it? Oh, yeah. Sure. Casey's thing has to go get it. Migrated into many things. She had no things. Now she has nothing but by the way, just while she's walking around, you were asking about this opal C one camera. I was curious about $300 camera. Jason Snell has been using it for a little while. Yeah, Jason's been using it on a Mac break weekly. But I have to say, I'll be honest, I think you already have the best camera. I bought a lot of these to try them out. You did these opals? I didn't buy the opal, but I've tried almost every all of the competitors for this. All the cameras that come along. And it actually looks very good. But you really have with your Android, probably the best camera you need. And an iPhone. So camo, CA MO is the program. You could put it on your Android phone or your iPhone. And there's a camo studio that goes on the Mac. And then you can either hook it up or do a wirelessly. I have all these cameras. All these cameras at home, and I've stopped using them. I just use, I use my iPhone, but you can use an Android device. I've just used this for the camera. And it works great. Totally cosine. And how do you hook that up to the either with a cable or wirelessly? It will work over Washington. But the program you want, and that's not free. But we'll underwrite it. And you have a pixel, right? It should work, it should work on your website, too. Because I still use Google. Still use Google. It's just on a Samsung. So it's from what's the name this is not it. So don't show this. No.

"It's all about the idea of one. Can you make the thing that you wanna make like. My my role as an advocate is often to show people. You know things that they can make using a different software different tools but often that means i'm making things myself and I i would say luckily for me most of my stuff that i make tends to go on the web have. I don't have to deal with this argument too much. But that said i mean it. It's a great time for developers because there are so many options of one of my favorites is there's a platform called rumps which is basically a way for you to write python and present the output in your menu bar which i know a friend of the show. Jason snell is doing a lot of work in that space and is known for some of the stuff of these been able to do with menu bar apps but again you know five years ago. That wouldn't have been an option you wouldn't be able to write you know python code and then put it up there and now exists. There is it. You know perfect but no but it's with you. I perfect also known as knows is perfect. Also know so. It's great that there are so many paths that can be taken. I think it's up to the you know the makers of the operating systems to one give everyone a fair shot. I think that's that's the hard part there is if if you want people to develop for your platform just again but that hundred mentality have the system. Get out of the way so that you can make the best possible application regardless of what platform that you're using I but that said i mean just like how omni focus is a very different app from things but they use some comparible technologies and then they're very different from something like to do know. They're all accomplishing a goal. But at the same time the way that they're going about it completely different. And i think the whole i guess the battles between should they be native apps or should they be abssador made with these other technologies. I think at end of the day it depends on what the the company's plans are. And what kind of their mindset. I don't think novas going to put out an electron apple. At least i don't think so at the moment not panic. No company change. I can't believe panic would ever do that. But you know who knows but either way it is an interesting time. And i'm really curious to see how it all shakes out. I suspect that With times with you is going to become much more stable and that's going to give developers and easy solution. But i don't know we'll find out either way.

"You can a long time ago. So i just want to state for the record because jason who create recopied is in the and i'm happy because this is what he wanted. He wanted to read a different way. But this is. I think makes the most sense because in our minds is how we've been thinking about this for a while anyway that it's actually you'll ratio is the important pop. Yeah yeah so really. It's sn jason snell. The bad person says minimum five picks. The percentage wins. Yes yeah i think so. Okay so let's look at the language here and tie in because of a tie in because of a percentage tie right right and actually we don't have the coin flip anywhere in the bill of ricky's that has just been something we've been doing so need to address that to let's fix. Plus he's we're doing a big amendment big amendment a thick amendment. I'm going to strike. The language says in the case of a tie the ratio of incorrect incorrect. Fox's take into account some gear that for now each host was like a minimum of five flexes Lexi's may be used as future flexing or regular picks. The winner is Determined determined by by ratio of correct incorrect picks correct to to incorrect. Okay so the winner is determined by the ratio of correct to incorrect flexes That i'm going to have At the bottom outside of the flexi section a new paragraph that says a tie in either the regular picks for the flex is to be broken by the coin toss. Can we make a second amendment or the flexi is a have jason flip. The coin by coin toss snows. Snell has a lifetime ban on flipping coins. I should also say digital assistance may be used. Bitcoin yep okay. So jason's now's a lifetime ban flipping the coin but digital digital voice. Assistance robots happened will need to address this digital voice. Assistance may maybe used in brackets. Even by jason. Jason jason's capable of asking. Siri is capable of flipping a physical clyde jason. Okay all right. I know that people want us to to like the people in the discord already are asking about like the the way that the tiebreaker should be broken is by. How many you correct. We just like coin flips. I like a coin flip. It's additional drama. It's always simple coin flips. A simple the worry having to do a lot more math that we needed to. I didn't think going to be making such huge changes to the blue rookies today at a neither. Let me read all again loser. Flexes must compensate. The winner of the facts is by donating to charity of choice. Okay the amount of the donation is twenty five per.

"I just like give up so i'm really hoping that shortcuts mac means that i'm going to be able to take advantage of not only some of the workflows that i already have but also things that i want automate on my mac exclusively and i know my colleague jason snell said he ran one of his iowa shortcuts on the the beta and it just worked it just worries. I didn't have to change literally anything. Well that is exciting because to me. That means there's a possibility that a lot of the things that i am already using to automate my life on my phone or on my ipad going to seamlessly. Make that jump to the mac. So yeah i'm really excited about it. I think it's the thing that i'm most excited about. About checking out when when i eventually install the betas because let's all agree that's going to happen sooner or later corey. What about you. So i'm very excited about this Primarily because my brain works differently. When i'm sitting in front of my mac than it does when i'm in front of my ipad so i've i've dabbled with shortcuts on the on and on ipad. Os and things like that. And it's fine. I get things to work in everything. Kinda does mostly what i wanted to do. After nineteen different tries and fixing different things and following rosemary's different guides and stealing as much as i can from her. But i think i think my brain is going to engage in a different way when it's sitting in front of my mac and it's sitting in front of me so i'm very excited about it and i'm excited to see what new things it can do right. So like damn was saying automated of work with automated before and automated very very valuable and beneficial. When you get the thing up and running and you get to The thing that you want to do doing exactly what you wanted to do. And i'm excited to see what that will open up with the new technology the new hardware and how those things it was not my favorite thing from. Wkbd this year but my favorite thing is coming. When it's for the topic so pause and hold that for you. So mike you're up honestly roseberry. This is a very tough question. Because i think there's there's so much and i do have a special is. My heart was shortcuts on the mac. Because it makes me feel closer to you and to matthew But the one that i'm going to mention is kind of a it's a side feature that Kind of got missed. I think for some folks and it is an update to find my Which is apple's sort of network for find my devices wear If you're running iowa fifteen and you have Activation locked turned on on your different devices. Even when the devices are powered off and this is specifically M one devices. And i'm not sure if the the mac if mo and max will do it but Sorry so apple. Silicon devices like iphone ipad even if they're completely turned off or erased you can still use the find my network to locate your devices and that is so cool. I don't know how many devices are are stolen on a given day But i had my ipad pro stolen one time in san francisco and By the fact that it was Cellular model that got into a place where there was no cellular connection and that it ran out of battery. I was unable to locate it after that point. And so knowing that even if my phone you know even if the bad actor turned it off or did something to To reset it or or completely flush it It could still be tracked. I think is really neat feature. So it just makes these devices even less Interesting for people to try and and And snag and i think that's a pretty cool thing. All righty rosemary. Why don't you around us out. So i am excited right shortcuts on the mac. If anybody didn't guess that then minus minus one point how foolproof Sorry ho bustle really. Do love you But yes i am going to be using it. I'm very excited by it. I am a little bit worried about Actions Transitioning where developers have got separate applications. So we've already seen this with some apps like say Things where they've got a separate iphone ipad app so they have separate shortcuts actions. So they have to. Do you have to do like the split. But you know you can handle all of that in shortcuts itself you can say if And and so on and check your device type so and so. I think it's all going to be manageable. There's plenty to be excited about And the fact that these things are working and running is great. They are not working and running on the intel macbook air that i sacrificed to the monterey gods but you know i'm gonna try an update and see what happens and Yeah already folks. Well that brings us to halftime. So we'll take a quick break. We come back with more..

And you can see the thing we we streamed with with the developers and just seeing and rene yesterday yesterday there. It's all there. It's all very well. It's kind of amazing what you can do with zoom. That was a terrific pinot. I was so busy during research this morning. I didn't have time to watch it. But i flagged it to watch it later on. That is a that you really put together. Murderers row of of talent last night. It was i i would. I would love to participate. But my god it was. It's going to be great to just be able to watch that as such a value created. Yeah it was. It was You got said so many. We've learned how exactly exactly career we we we had to. We wanna leave enough space for the developers that way. But i bet it was sometimes sometimes like like. You're you're like a rock musician at a concert. Saying i really would have loved to be up there jamming. But it's so great to the audience be able to enjoy and watch this as an audience member and that's what that's what so many ratios are. The other thing you do. And i have a lot of volunteers but because i always have wanted to do this but it's just so much effort is you've got all of directly hours. Thank you jeff. How does that in wilde time like he's he's he's he's like secretary write it all down. He he hasn't yet and so geoffrey geoffrey does that offer our shows and it's just amazing. He does it in real time. So as as we're doing it it's just like boom boom boom boom so if you wanna say you know if you want to know well how will. Ex cloud code change my development workflow. You go right to fifty three twenty. Just click the lincoln. It's there that is a very nice feature that you too bad recently. And i really think it's perfect for something like office hours. Thank you alex. Thank you andy. Rene will be back next week. He'll also be special guest on our sunday. Show twit this week in tech because we will probably be talking a little bit about apple.

"Like slack uses the new focus tariffs api. Your status in slack will be able to match whatever you set on your iphone so that my colleagues on slack for example may be able to see l. for the. He's know having some personal downtime based on the status that i sat from focusing control center. So there's also going to be a pi for thirty two years. Which i think is the right way to go john. I will enable you. I would allow you a white list. You so that you'll let me break through the barrier will let you break through our let you see what i'm answering reading time. So you're going to say that. I could get hold of you no matter what i thought i get to get. Get a free pass. I probably don't baby steps. Come on baby steps all right. Yeah no i think it's a great feature. I'm looking forward to it. I have to think about what. I how i want to set this up. But it is the kind of fine grain control over notifications that i wanted for a long time. And i think it'll be. It'll be good to have especially if you can do it on a thread by thread basis and things like that in messages which will be which will be perfect. Now i want to ask you a little bit about share play because this seems to be a very big thing for apple this year and you know we had the experience where i think it was like you and me and maybe an stephen and mike we tried to do a group facetime one time and then we tried to get jason snell onto and you know it was earned early beta in our phones all got really hot and it didn't really work particularly well. I'm not saying that that's what's going to happen to share play but it seems like there's an awfully ambition. There's a lot going on here because this is something that can work across messages. Facetime the iphone the ipad. The apple tv. There's a lot going on here and it's all has to be synchronized because it allows you to do things like listen to music as a group or watch. Tv show or movie. There's a lot of things that that it's built to do and it'll be interesting to meet. I think to see how well it can accomplish those with a big group. I guess one into across all those different kinds of devices right right This is the feature that like as i mentioned I don't know. I think it's i don't think i'm gonna use it much. I don't think they're going to much. I think it's gonna be pretty amazing if not downright scary for family tech support when it comes to screen sharing because he furious relatives. Get a hold of the fact that you can now share your screen with with with attack savvy member of the family. They will probably requests tax support the frequently but i also think it's i also think it's about time to be able to share your screen with somebody else and You know had to do something or you know. Give them some tips on on a video game for example whatever it is. I think it's a fantastic addition. I think it's impressive that you will be able to watch movies and tv shows or listen to music together. The music one is interesting to me. I think we can do some pretty fun stuff there but the watching tv shows and movies that feels like a like a twenty twenty feature and yeah. That's the one that i really meant. When i said i don't think i'll use it much i can. I can see the music one working. Especially when you're doing it. i. I think that's the kind of activity i would do over text message. Not like video but But yeah i mean. I can see that one working a lot better. You're on the mac to with the screen sharing you can share just a single window which is kind of cool idea to perfect. I like it. Nice so yeah on. Us what's do wanna mention a us. There was a bunch of privacy. Stuff's that i think is interesting like for example i called plus which is this new version of college that includes effectively like an apple. Vpn but it's not called the vpn. It's called the private relay for right so the basically like it masks your ip address. And you're like oh you're browsing activity from other websites from From from apps and basically anonymous is what you do online it does look like a vpn to me but of course it's not called the apple of vpn. I gotta looking to like upgrading to icloud. Plus because right now. Like i have a standard while settings on my iphone already says eichel. Plus so i guess. It's like a free upgrade. I dunno these was very clear. So we'll have to see what what comes of that. I think on ios the only other thing maybe we ought to we mentioned before moving on is safari because only fiery is getting quite a big a big redesign and this is one that obviously is across all the platforms like many of these features. But the tab bar has been greatly simplified in now takes on the color of the website that you're visiting so it really kind of blends into a seamless window at this point and the the address bar is not so much a bar anymore. It's more a the the site name that you tap on and when you tap on it then you get a smart search bar which allows you to do searches of for Websites or within the page as well as revealing other different features like late and reader mode and things like that and a new kind of behind a new more button in. I think that's true across all three platforms. I know it's true for the mac. Yeah i can tell you that on the iphone. It's really different like you have this florida. I know especially there. Have this floating at the bottom of the screen Chose you the the main of the current page. And there's this new menu that includes like four top level buttons for safari reader. Reading least which is now. Has this cute. Button called read later Reload button and the sheriff. She and the share button. And then just below this four top level items. You got your standard extensions. And what's really interesting. Here is that so this. Ui element floats toward the bottom of the screen. So that it's easier to reach with your thumb. But then you can. You can swipe up on it to open the new tab view which is finally no longer this vertical carousel. It's a standard greet vida open tabs and you can organize your taps in tab groups and tab groups they will be available available on all of your device his Including the including the mac all the stop groups. Allow you to this. These are like sets of tabs. The can rename..

"Stores work better than the and maybe watch face wouldn't be that big a deal but you know i think there because there are established brands in watch. I think rolex would be dumb and not to make a rolex rolex watch faces in the apple. Watch face store. Rolex would never do it. I don't know but like whoever like there are brands. That would want to sell it. Would it be. I think it would be more successful. The i message store but maybe less successful than tv os either way. They should just do it. Apple knows how to make app stores. App allows you know having another platform for you to develop just another part of developing for the watch. I have a feeling that watch apps like we saw from the part of the court league documents that the watch store is not a ghost town but it's nothing compared to you know the the the iowa store the one that counts right and you know it's kind of depressingly grand just because like you know how many people want apps on their watch. It's mostly you just want to use the built in apps and use it as a fitness device and have some cool complications. Maybe get a cold weather app like. It's not. It's not that big a deal but i feel like watch. Faces are similar. There is a market for there to be a watch face star so apple should totally do it even if it's not super popular it's not a big deal May maybe this is the feeling slightly more optimistic based on your. But there's there's no way like the really high end brands like rolex betak long. They're not gonna do it. But i don't know they see dollar signs and he first of all you probably see it from places like says but i think you'll see it from the big fashion brands. It has some collaborations with fossil and stuff like that swatch yet. Maybe that's their big brand. They also watched group owns a whole bunch of different sub brands. But yeah it's like regardless if the big brand influence that would just be an incredible place for like that would be a new marketplace for developers and designers to make cool stuff and i think it would really read some life into the apple watch software scene which needs life breathed into. It could be like like mp three player skins where like say. You make the overpass. Watch face that integrates with overcast. Which in a way that. You can't see the borders between them if you like actually like make them but up against each other and so make it likely complication blends into the watch face because you get to control both of them. That's a little bit anapa like but it reminds me of mp three player skins. Could you have control over the whole pallid. You can really make something that is an integrated whole that you know is ugly as you want it to be as brandon. The frito lay watch face. Yeah that'll be the big big popular ones this giant thereto rotating that first of all that would be amazing and i bet people would use a but but i even just beyond the brand and i think this would be a wonderful thing for you know at makers and to play with Because the apple watch face game needs that level of individualism attitude. It's not like now that so many people use the apple watch. You need more individuality than whatever you know. Apple's half asked attempt at making like three new watch faces a year can add to it like you need more than that you need. You need a richer set of influences and and perspectives and ideas than just whatever. Five people in cupertino can come up with. Yeah i definitely agree. But i don't know i i really. I'd like to go on record. That i do not want there to be custom watch faces because then underscore will do nothing for the rest of his life but may custom watch faces. And i like that. That's all he does now anyway. What are you talking now. He just can't ship them. I knew i like his to seventy races. Ready to ship right now. It's funny alright mac. Os john what do you want. I feel like This year for mac. Os like the obvious thing is that we have all this arm mac hardware and yeah. We have a mac. Os runs them already but like kind of the same way that. The new imacs are an example of hardware made with apple. Silicon in mind right in a way the you know the the mac mini the mac book. Air were not because they were just gonna go with the guts ripped out. You can do a similar thing for mac os. Like what kind of things can you do in mac. Os knowing that like our that our mac exists and and that is one that's going to be announced. Wwe seat because you know what the hell's the big sur was the new big survey going gonna be released before our max out right but this os they know. This is the one that can released went. Our max exists so for example. If there are going to be cellular. Max at some point. Now it'd be the time to have the os the underpinnings of that in the os any framework changes. You're going to do any sort of thing that you want to tell developers that with a hint you know wink. Wink nudge nudge. Years away. that you can you know because there's a lot of api's for that already but they can enhance them and people like how enhancing that it doesn't make sense right so yours is one thing i'm thinking of. But even just like api is that take advantage of the upcoming one hundred twenty eight core integrated gpu and whatever features that might have like. This is the mac os that can really sort of leverage apple. Silicon macs is complicated. By the fact that if there's no hardware associated with it you kinda have to read between the lines. But i just feel like this is z. Os there could be optimized for our max in terms of all the features they can possibly support and if there are any kind of frameworks or things that need to be sort of recompiled or made better for the arm max in a way. That might have disrupted compatibility. This is the os to do it. And then besides that. I feel like it's just the usual complaints about reliability performance like stuff that came out in big sur that is not fully baked. Like there's lots of complaints lately about the update system. I just read jason. Snell's big thing about enterprise. Mac users complaining that every time there's a security update three gig download like the mobile whatever. It's called mobile. Update the update system. The that are max inherited from. Irs essentially is not up to snuff for the mac shouldn't have three gig downloads for small security patch right. So hey this is the os where you can enhance that similarly the time. She has that they've done those are great. It would be nice if there was some kind of interface to snapshot some enhancements like their features that already existed mac. Os things take advantage of. And then just general reliability and performance type stuff. I think like normally you would say to rely to be reliable. Everything about it is good. But i think now we have enough sort of immature systems in mac. Os they need to take that at similar like swift. You like it exists. It's there it's better than you know it's a it's a cool thing but there needs to be a to and there are lots of parts of mac. Os that are like that. So that's what i want to see. And i think that's what we will see. I don't think there's anything again like. Irs anything major. That mac os lacks that. Everyone is just dying to see. It's just like take what's there and make it more reliable..
"jason snell" Discussed on Liftoff
"This time. By tipper up technologies left as a fortnightly. Show where you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the latest news about space and related subjects. My name is stephen. Hackett joined his always my coast. Mr jason snell. Hi steven how are you. I'm good jason. We're back on more night One of these days. I'm telling you one of these days. We're going to go see like a rocket launch or something. I i'm all for it. Liftoff live special. Ucs near rocket taking off right. I was thinking we wouldn't do it. During the launch. That would be interesting. we could. We could just like four minutes in. There's a launch and everybody goes wu and then we continue with the peng like. Oh yeah okay next item. Preflight checklists yes. Yeah florida's a long way to go. But i have done that. It's coming up ten years by the way ten years since the last flight of the space shuttle and i was at launch. And that's july so very soon we're going to get to that last The marking ten years since the shuttle program shutdown. I saw a tweet today that today. June first is the tenth anniversary of the last endeavor flight. So we're we're right at the end of it Yeah i was just thinking twenty eleven it just was just i was just there and now it's actually just a long time ago so i'm i'm for another launch. That was good. I'll see another works for me all right. Should we dive into our Preflight checklist before we launch this thing before the scandal. Let's do it mars mars. There's stuff that's what there is. Their stuff is your on lander or rover. I guess Rolled down off. Its ramp yellow ramp. It's kind of cute little ramp like Mars this way and it rolled down and is now on the surface of mars for a that was may twenty second that it did that. It's gonna be a plan mission of ninety days. I don't know whether china when it says ninety days if it means ninety days or if it's like The nasa rovers where they say ninety days and they mean for years. I don't know. I honestly don't know But they ninety days. It's what's on the rover. They're a bunch of cameras There's some ground penetrating radar which is fun. There's a weather station. The magnetometer and a spectrometer all sorts of our science in the same vein as the as the other mars rovers in order to just gather more information about what the heck is going on and went on in the past on mars there utopia plenty show which is actually where i think the viking landed and it's was presumably at some point during a wetter period and morris history underwater so an interesting place to go and look and do some geology. And for the record. There are four missions. Currently active on mars In addition to your is the insight lander and then the perseverance and curiosity rovers. of course. they're still rolling around as well and that that doesn't even in count like any helicopters. I didn't include them. Because it's really part of perseverance if you if you ask me. And they're not always on mars sometimes. Sometimes it's fine bubble sometimes helicopters or not on mars. It's good it's good use. blew my mind anyway. So it's off and will i'm sure hear more about the jurong as as it rove's around utopia plenty show a half some hashtag space drama for you. I saw this this morning. You were your relaying. The space drama which got even more dramatic. Who would've thought that the astronomy picture of the day. The most comforting sleepy and and really old part of the space internet would be the source of space drama. But it happened. Yeah it has been around. I don't even know how long a really long time the archives on their website go back to twenty fifteen. But i'm sure it's longer than that. Oh since nineteen ninety five there go. This is the one log page just html. I love it. Oh no it hasn't changed all that time. It is the same thing that it was back. Then i love it. I used to go. It was used to be unlike my page of links. My home page that. I had of those early days of the web like it was a it was a great a great find. And it's still kicking if you if you don't go to you should everybody because it's fun but this is twitter account. I think they have an instagram account. As well so you can. You can get a bunch of ways. I i guess you could use twitter instagram. Or you could go to a pod dot nasa dot gov and just see the page that was built in nineteen ninety-five and hasn't been updated since then old school this. There's this picture is of orion and a has light streaks across the image and where the drama comes in. is that the original tweet. Which is done. By robot titled the photo starlink orion starlink. Of course being spacex is ever growing collection of internet satellites. And there's been a lot of discussion angst around the reflectively of those and getting in the way of earth-based observatories because they They live this guy when go through them and then went and actually defied the explanation of the photo saying that. This is actually this. Actual image is from some satellites and high geosynchronous orbit from december twenty nineteen that this image doesn't have starlink satellites in it but it's a good opportunity to talk about and reflect on the issues that starlink and others The concerns that they raise among astronomers. So you have people who are big space x people saying that. This was drumming up complaints about Starlink on purpose. And i don't think that's what they meant but it's been very dramatic certain parts of the internet today about this. Yeah i i'm are. We surprised that. No that people who like spacex might be offended by anything that might possibly besmirch spacex. I'm not. I'm not this. We you and i do a bunch of stuff about apple and You know so. We know how this is. Which is there were companies that have fans and some fans will not brook any even remote suggestion of anything negative about the company that they're a fan of and and ulama companies collect those people probably the same people but maybe they're different. Who knows anyway. Yeah it's also known goal though like you should satellites making a point about satellites. General probably didn't need to call it starlink especially since it wasn't ups like don't don't do that yet. That's the error on the part of the editor of a pod but You know it is what it is an opportunity to discuss this. I don't think it's a opportunity to burn. Or nasa burning one of its partners necessarily There's a lot of comments about it. Well it's easy to filter it out and stuff like that is true for some types of observations but not others again. It's an opportunity to discuss the issue. It's not a. It's not a reason to burn somebody at stake. Well yeah i. I just checked and it's not good. You're right good. Yeah but it's the internet so everything's cranked to eleven. What is we doing. I i saw this. I had not seen this new york times article but i. i think it's awesome. What's going on stephen. What's is sweden. not doing. Is the real question. What aren't they doing. they're doing everything. Sweden's doing everything so okay. This is a fun story. In the new york times about sweden rehabbing an old european space agency site in the far north of sweden and using it as a launch site for satellites going into polar orbits..
Apple Macbook Pro bug patched, unleashing full-speed performance
"I'm Jason Snell your host joined this week by two wonderful guest, longtime analyst, former apple employee, and you'll love them. You can't live without him. It's Michael Garten, Berg. Hello? Hey, Jason picture back. Glad that you're here. I expecting you to lend some interesting perspectives. You can tell us all the secrets about how apple really does conspire to break all of its products. Awake more money, or perhaps I too much Shelly Brisbane is also here host of the parallel podcast and somebody who's been working in the tech world for a long time or at least we won't say how long but you and I used to work together so that that says something we did. Hello. Thanks for having me back. I can't promise any secrets. I'll try though. All right. Okay. Well, we'll see. We'll see what we can and we might as well get to. These are the most interesting stories of the week as deemed by me and by Stephen who is not here in reality, but is here in spirit and he picked the topics. So you know his, his impression is left on this podcast even though he is roaming around, I think on summer vacation with his family right now which you know the nerve of that guy to do that anyway. Topic number one this week in tech panics. The macbook pro had a week youtuber. Dave Lee found that his brand new top of the line core. I nine laptop last week was way too slow unless he put it in the freezer which you should not do also gloves don't work well on track pads. So just it's not gonna work, but thus began a cycle of reactions. How can apple do this? Who are they trying to fool? Why you know? Why do they make people try to think that these expensive products are any good. They don't even test them how they could they shipped it. And of course, in a week it was uncovered that it was a weird firmware bug in the cooling system that it's lip through Apple's in house testing and ended up on shipping systems. Even though the versions that they tested in house didn't have the bug. It was sort of missing piece of software and apple. Obviously, some people worked all weekend because in a week from when Lee posted his video and it went viral, there was a release and it was fixed, and it was just a software. And then everybody tested the new laptops after the fix, and they said, oh, now it makes sense. It works fine. So I've got large scale questions in small scale questions. But first, let's start with this story itself and how apple handed it. I I mentioned earlier that Michael Garten Burg used to work inside apple. How do you? How do you think apple handle this? And what's your reaction to how the world reacted and then how apple reacted. Well, in this particular case, I think apple reacted well, and we found this bug was found in one particular scenario, doing one particular action and apples testing QA while extremely thorough may not include every single permutation, and I suspect he was this particular function combined with this particular bug, and then there's two ways to deal with it. One is to acknowledge that there indeed is a problem, and the second is to ignore the problem and you're gonna fix it. Third is not to acknowledge anything. Usually the problem if you know you have the fix and I think that was the case here. Apple acknowledged it and they promptly released a fixed. They're able to duplicate now, fix it. When apple doesn't acknowledge the problem, even though it seems to be a widespread problem. For example, the problem that people were having with keyboards exact apple never acknowledged that as a real problem. But then promptly changed the keyboard designed MAC pro. Properly. I suspect one of the reasons for that is you acknowledge you have a problem in the keyboard maybe even though about with the keyboard, but it's x. number of max that have why problem, and it's cheaper just to replace the x. number rather than say, we have a problem and then suddenly have to replace everyone's MAC and then be subject to the usual class action. Lawsuits that invariably comes around. So I don't know anyone who had keyboard problem than apple hasn't been able to deal with for the most part, but neck as it's kinda telling that they re designed it with little bit of silicone a little bit of the protection sa- prevent Dustin stuff getting in..
