Bryan Chaffin is joined by John Kheit to talk about Apple’s new iPad Pros, MacBook Airs, and Mac mini, plus the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. They also discuss the potential for the ARM processor in Macs, and all the cursed goodness of the latest episode of Oak Island.
Even as Apple works to make iPads more Mac-like and better at productive work, it remains for Apple make its case for the coming Mac revolution.
Dennis Sellers at AppleWorld.Today offers an intriguimg proposition.
We hear rumors about upcoming iPhones with foldable screen. But what about Macs with bendable displays. Imagine a MacBook Pro with a screen that measured 13-inches when you’re, for example, on an airplane. Get to your hotel room, however, and you can unfold it to 17 inches or bigger.
Author Sellers makes a good case.
John Martellaro and Charlotte Henry join host Kelly Guimont to talk about port differentials on MacBook models and Apple’s macOS bug bounty.
Apple puts four USB-C Ports on a MacBook Pro to make us believe that it’s a “pro” machine. The trouble is, we all do the same things with ports on a MacBook Air which only has two ports. This crippling is all very callous and manipulative by Apple.
Navigating in a car with AR and maps on an iPhone, even on the upper dashboard, is not the right way to go. John has a much better idea.
Evidence is mounting that the ill-fated Butterfly mechanism keyboard that Apple has been using in its notebook computers ever since the MacBook debuted in 2015 will eventually become history. AppleInsider has the goods:

Furthermore, Kuo is predicting that the entire MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines will migrate in 2020 to the technology.
Some think this is evidence of the subtle hand of Apple’s COO Jeff Williams.
The 2019 MacBook Air released last week has a slower SSD than the 2018 MacBook Air. The 128GB and 256GB models were tested.
Andrew Orr and Dave Hamilton join host Kelly Guimont to talk about the new Mac laptop updates and the latest security flaw courtesy of Zoom.
The 2019 Back to School sales are starting with Apple. The MacBook Air price has been lowered to US$1,099 and updated with True Tone.
It’s irritating when the keyboard on a MacBook of some kind fails. But are the complaints out of proportion? John weighs in.
It seems that the newest Macs have an unresolved audio glitching bug that has to do with Apple’s T2 security chip.

Yesterday Costo started selling Macs on its website, and you can pick up a Costco Mac and get a US$50 to US$200 discount.
Bryan Chaffin and guest-host Jim Dalrymple talk about how they use their iPads, and it turns out they’re pretty different use cases. They try to talk about where Apple TV might go but venture into a much deeper conversation about Apple’s original TV shows and videos. Spoiler: one of them is a pessimist. They close the show by examining the state of the Mac. Another spoiler: one of them is a pessimist!
Companies are like organisms: they’re born, they grow, adapt, and have a life cycle. But predicting Apple’s future is very hard to do at this point. We can, however, monitor life signs.
