Join Ed and Brian for a recap of
Apple’s 365th special event of 2020. We start off on a somber note
as Brian pays tribute to his first guide dog Nash who recently
passed. Disclaimer, if you drop your Air Pods on to a train track,
do not go down on the tracks to get them. Really, Apple Lidar
already can help blind people know how far other people are away
from them? Talk about information I could have used yesterday. iOS
14.2 will now give you a completely useless daily briefing.
HomePod Mini orders have been placed, but will they ever arrive?
Then a little promo for Brian who made an appearance on the Yahoo
Fantasy Football Podcast and you can read the article about the All
Blind Fantasy Football League further down in the show notes. We
then dive in to Apple’s One More Thing monthly presentation,
starting off with our thoughts about the new M1 chip. RIP boot
Camp. The new Mac Air keyboards will be making some interesting
changes adding dedicated dictation, do not disturb, and spotlight
keys. For a full VoiceOver user, is there any reason to get a
MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar? iOS apps will they or won’t they be
coming to your Arm Macs, but more importantly will they be
accessible? Will you be installing Mac OS Big Sur on launch day?
And of course it is more of Whatcha Streaming, Watcha Reading.
