Episode 68: I Turned Into Scott Forstall

Hang on. Did you just combine ‘Bluetooth headphones’ and ‘plug in’ in the same sentence?

Richard is away on avenging duties this week, so Mark and Simon discuss the rise of Lyft as viable competition for Uber, the not-so-surprising slump of iPhone sales last quarter, and the anachronistic joy of running Windows 95 on an Apple Watch.

Episode 67: What I Do Instead Of Vinyl

This week the hosts discuss what it would take for them to solely depend on a iPad for all their computing needs. Could they do it? And if not, what's holding them back?

Episode 66: Listen, Phil

#moderndigitallifestyle #nofilter

Simon returns to the show to offer his take on the Apple keynote. And with that, what could have been a shallow, ten minute jog-through of snark develops instead into a deep conversation on the problems in TV Apple can’t fix, what the iPhone SE means for first-time buyers, and if the new iPad Pro really is a light in the dark for trapped Windows users. Mark and Richard take the opportunity to quiz Simon on the practicalities of replacing his parents’ 5 year-old laptop, and ridicule him for his 25 year-old laptop. Also, we make relentless puns about a certain iPhone app that, if we had it, would really help us download it.

With Richard priorly engaged, Mark and Simon discuss a new, interesting, but ultimately predictable purchase from Simon, catch up with the latest on the Apple/FBI case, and ponder why we seem to be fighting the crypto wars all over again.

Episode 62: The Scuppering Tree

Mark returns this week, alongside Simon and Richard, to discuss the topic captivating the world right now: the fight between Apple and the FBI/DoJ over encryption and the right of everyone to have it.

Warning: this episode gets very political. If this a is a problem for you we suggest you either don't listen or send us hate mail, your call listener! We eat third rails for breakfast.

Episode 61: Bendy Mode

I could tell the answer was ‘no’. But I clicked ‘yes’ anyway, just to see what would happen!

Richard and Simon waver from the podcast’s regular fruit diet this week, and look at where industry mainstay Microsoft is at these days. Where do they see Windows heading in the future? Can they jump the platform migration hurdle that Apple were lumped with 15 years prior? Do they still have a chance to break out of the traditional desktop form factor? How will their upcoming iOS keyboard feel to use? And what is the word for when something happens every two years?

Episode 59: That’s My Air Quotes Voice

The (i)clouds of pessimism are — once again — swirling around Apple, with analysts and investors predicting the end times are near... it must be that time of year again. In light of this, the gang of three conduct an open and honest assessment about where Apple find themselves in 2016, what they can do to further improve their prospects in the coming years, and what they would personally like to see Apple do in a perfect world.

Episode 57: My One-Man Jazz Act

Episode 56: The Common Theme Is Countryside

After their annual week away Mark, Richard, and Simon return for episode 56 and two of them have bought an iPhone case to experiment with.

Episode 55: Chosen By The Caching Fairy

Everyone loves the Internet. But what happens when it doesn’t go as planned? This week sees the hosts discussing Steam’s authentication glitches that occurred over the Christmas period, including bonus thoughts about two-factor authentication. This leads, somehow, to us thinking carefully about how many Things we want the Internet in. (Spoiler alert: it’s not as many as the industry seems to think).

Finally, we round off with Mark discussing how he was cornered into going against all of his beliefs about the cloud. Needs must, as they say, but did it Just Work?

Episode 54: Wearing The Ball Of Shame

Mark is back to full fitness to return to the helm of the good ship Tech Correct for episode, 54 and complain about Apple's Industrial Design — or lack thereof — again, this time in the form of Apple's iPhone 6/6S battery case. Done with Apple, the gang spend the rest of the show discussing George Hotz, who is trying (and succeeding to some degree) to build a self-driving car to rival those of Tesla and Google. He seems a little nuts, but there is a gem of a good idea underlying it all.

Episode 53: Making A Stupid Hat

Illness rips through the halls of the Technically Correct Podcast this week, as Mark is too ill to show up, and Simon is not far off. Highly incapacitated and in need of a new topic, our remaining hosts dig up an interesting article that claims to offer 10 helpful Wi-Fi tips, but really offers something else indeed.

In the after-show, Richard and Simon discuss the problems with emoji implementations across different platforms, and how that can really affect how your message might come across.

Episode 52: Round To The Nearest Penny

For this week's extravaganza the gang discuss the merits of using a case on your phone, following an unfortunate incident for Richard and Dropbox's decision to "sunset" Mailbox and Carousel.

Episode 51: Tending Towards Chips

This week Mark, Simon, and Richard discuss the possibility of Apple removing the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone. How likely is it to really happen? How similar a scenario is it to the removal of the 30-pin connector in favour of Lightning?

Along the way discussion deviates to Bluetooth and its general awfulness, Bluetooth speakers and headphones, and the connected home.

Episode 50: Look At Me, I’m A General Purpose Computer

It's been over five years since the iPad emerged as the next big thing for general purpose computing, and now Apple have released the iPad Pro to add to their growing iPad lineup. But what is it for? And not just that, what is the iPad Air for? And while we're at it, the iPad Mini as well!

Rather than using the traditional hearsay and hyperbole method, which now seems to be the standard adopted by the tech press whenever discussing Apple's tablet business, your hosts argue that case that Apple may well be sleeping at the wheel a bit when it comes to the iPad. Simon, Richard, and Mark are all of the opinion that the iPad and iOS are having somewhat of an extended identity crisis, but do you agree, dear listener? Let us know what you think.

Mark returns to the show this week with his spin on building a PC and running multiple machines, his Siri remote breaking leads to some further Apple TV discussion and follow up, and the gang discuss the strange merriment one can derive from playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 after Mark gives it a go following an episode of the Cortex Podcast.
