Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Dec 29, 2020

Saddled in between Christmas and the New Year, the crew arrives with a healthy dose of information regarding Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and maybe a bit about Google. We hope all of you are safe and warm. And while Angie is basking in the Florida sunshine, the rest of the crew are weathering the blistery wrath of Winter.  But the show must go on!

Why are headsets, headphones and ear buds becoming so important? What about that Bluetooth relationship with Windows? And  how do you feel about Facebook taking out full-page ads to call out Apple when possibly, Facebook should be looking in the mirror. The debate rages on.

Apple seems to be working on that Electric Car, again, and will it hit the road driverless in 2024 or 2028? You may think that is a ways out but try waiting for the Air Pod Pros delivery timeframe!  Hmm. Do you think Siri is going to Navigate your vehicle or would you let that smart device do anything in the Apple car?  See what the crew thinks of Fitness Plus or is it Fitness Less when consideration for description is not really up to snuff.

What do you think about sharing an iPhone or iPad? Multiple users for iOS may be on the horizon, but then again, Air Power and Air Tags are on that same horizon. 
