Bring Your Own Device


Bring Your Own Device walks the very thin line between being an Apple fan and not being an Apple apologist. Each week your hosts Greg (@GR36) and Nathan (@natisho) discuss interesting topics surrounding Apple and the technology world at large.

Aug 26, 2017

This week we have a special guest - Ben Basche - which joins us in discussing about the Apple's TV messy strategy, Android Oreo's launch and how it reflects about Google's Android strategy and relationships with Android OEMs. Also we talk about Essential and where it fits, iOS 11 beta 7 and how the iOS UI is evolving, iPhone 8's pricing - the value of the smartphone - and who did it first. And we finish with the app subscription models through the Ulysses blunder, and ARKit in a future where Apple makes glasses/ facial wearables.
