I'm not an apple fan boy I just love technology. The apple byte is awesome but it's too short. This is perfect because they're able to go into more detail and also the podcast really sounds organic and funny. They even periscoped a show which was awesome. Next they should move from the periscope and just do an all out JRE like video podcast. Look forward to many more of these, Keep it up!
Gotta say I like getting Apple news about the next big thing(s) for them.
Apple fan since iPhone 4.
Once experienced there's no changing OS'
The video itself is good but short
Though if ya use your iPhone on a daily basis video only gets like 10 hours (depending on your iPhone model & settings & operating conditions & how long you use the device & the number of apps you have open & etc). Audio goes a bit further depending on my previously stated variables.
With the audio podcast all of us Apple fans can get even more news on even more Apple topics
I’m glad you have another platform for reviews and updates of products. When CNET/CBS decided to cut video podcasts of popular cnet employees I was extremely disappointed. It seemed like they didn’t want employees to have that popularity to negotiate their influence. I miss even seeing the daily video run down in the video section of the CNET website. What happened to all the shows?
