iTunes Reviews:

Early January, 2019 this year: 5-stars

One of my favorite friends with mics podcasts in iTunes by scottaw66 from USA on January 10, 2019

Three guys with wildly divergent personalities, an ability to nerd out like there’s no tomorrow (there probably isn’t), and a big spool of magnetic recording tape. The magnetic recording tape has nothing to do with this podcast, but whatever. I just like magnetic tape. Seriously, a fun, casual, relaxed podcast with three good friends who always bring their “A” game. I’ll let you decide what “A” stands for.

Mid-January this year: 5-stars

The amazing TRIO⭐️⭐️⭐️ ****by MillaB79 -When you listen to someone you haven’t met so much that you feel like you know them

  • and they always make you laugh
  • and they have the greatest conversations
  • and a 2 hour episode is over in a blink of an eye😉
  • oh, and the music at the very end is so amazing! No clue what beat that is but I absolutely love it and I don’t want it to end!


Apple’s 25th of March, 2019 Apple TV+ Event

Week leading up to the event Apple released:

  • iPads:
    • Update to iPad Air, now with A12, Old Pencil Support. Smart Keyboard for it too
    • iPad mini
    • All of these keep their Lightning ports and headphone jacks, Touch ID and no new features
    • Keep good prices though so unless you need real power, they’re finally good value
  • iMacs:
    • There’s now an iMac that performs 85-100% equivalent based on Geekbench test with the entry level iMac Pro for 1/3rd of the price
  • New AirPods:
  • Powerbeats Pro


  • September 2017 event Apple announced it
  • After a year or so of it not showing up Apple removed it from their site, scrubbed most evidence of it
  • Weirdly the new AirPod packaging had a picture of it on the back
  • Then four days after the Apple Event, and bam: they cancelled it completely
