Blind Bargains Qast 75: Too Much Math
Joe Steinkamp Monday, 03-Oct-2016 7:28 PM ET
We've hit the lull between tech giant events. We'll attempt to fill that void by asking Patrick a whole lot of questions about his new iPhone. There is some news, "Sound Off', "Last Word" and a special tip from Shelly Brizbin too. But we're killing time this week until we unleash our thoughts upon the Googleplex event coverage in episode 76. Our poor, poor wallets!
In The News:
Discussion Topic: iPhone 7 Hands On
Patrick has that phone you have heard so much about for the last month. J.J. and Joe get his thoughts on the new Home Button, the Lightning Headphones and the dongle that comes along inside the box. He also gives us some insight on the 7's audio quality in the new stereo mode and how some iPhone cases are not created equal.
Tip: Trashing iOS 10 Mail
The new Mail app in iOS 10 has some odd little quirks. Take, for example, that "Archive" bit, which used to just give you the option of sending it all to Trash. Well, unlike most changes Apple makes, you can revert to classic behavior and get your discarded emails to go to the Trash area. Shelly will show you how in this tip. To learn more helpful tips, like this one and others she has mentioned on BBQ, snag a copy of the updated "iOS Access For All" book.
Long time listener CW left us some thoughts on the new iPhone in our comments section of episode 74:
Greg sent along this email about Zoom and iOS.
If you haven't already done so, another shameless plug for our BBQ Regular, Shelly covers both pretty well in her iOS Access book. We'll have to see if we can get her to talk about a dual use thing in the future though.
Eric sends along this email...
Joe, J.J. and Patrick have been discussing all manner of tech for more than six years. And yes, they might have produced a show all about Android access for half a decade. However, each owns Apple and Android products. BBQ tries to land the tech we talk about in house, or we enlist the help of someone who does own the tech when we can, as we think this adds more to the discussion of the day. Not only that, but it helps to live in an ecosystem if you want to be critical of that platform. There aren't too many technologies out there that could be associated with us and the term "fanboys", although we do acknowledge that our familiarity of one system might dwarf the other sometimes due to our past experiences. In other words, we'll be just as critical of Google on episode 76 as we were with Apple on episode 74.
Music once again finds a way into the "Last Word".

Please explain on a podcast why at least one of you, Patrick, doesn't like blue tooth. Never on any AppleVis podcast have I heard someone's blue tooth Braille display or keyboard disconnect unless the presenter did so voluntarily. Thanks. Beth
