Blind Bargains Qast 157: Liquid Retina Vapor Faces


It takes 5 of us to talk about 3 phones. Yep, the Apple event is over, and we break down the highlights of the hardware. Shelly Brisbin
and Scott Davert
join J.J., Joe and Patrick to talk about the new Apple gear in this special wrap-up show edition of the BBQ.

Programming Note:

This podcast was recorded shortly after the Apple event on September 12th. At that time, we did not know where Hurricane Florence would make landfall. However, we knew it would and we wanted to mention some resources in case our listeners wanted to help with the recovery efforts.

Hey, guys: it has been a year, and that letter X - as in iPhone X - is still a Roman numeral ten. The screen readers still get it wrong, but surely you're smarter than your screen readers. I'm using an iPhone 8 and have no plans to replace it barring some unanticipated accident. I'm thinking more seriously about the new Apple watch, though.
