Episode 1: Chainsaw Frittata

All My iFiles Reader is doomed, so go placate yourself with a salad.

In this inaugural episode of the Technically Correct Podcast your genial hosts Mark, Simon and Reg discuss:

  • The closing of Google Reader, Google's business practices and their new app: Google Keep
  • Apple's update to the podcasts app and what it might tell us about UI design at Apple under Jony Ive
  • The "Apple is doomed" chatter
  • Apple's inclusion of the launchpad and all my files features in OS X
  • The rumoured iWatch, other wearable technology and how all three of us have no interest in either
  • Some of Apple's naughty claims
  • Terrible product naming

Mark says "don't get me wrong" too much, Reg eats a salad as well as revealing his secret love of Peter Andre, Simon launches into a fully justified tirade against silly ways people pronounce acronyms in technology, and a thorough deconstruction of Aldi somehow shoehorns it's way into proceedings.
