Bryan Chaffin Discusses iPhone 4 Pre-orders on MacJury

The Mac Observer’s Bryan Chaffin joined MacJury host Chuck Joiner and several other guests for Part 1 of a special two-part podcast to talk about the iPhone 4 pre-order situation, the freshly updated Mac mini, and Safari 5.

The podcast panel also included Jeff Carlson from TidBITS, Pioneer Press columnist Julio Ojeda-Zapata, TUAW’s Michael T. Rose, and Frasier Speirs from Connected Flow.

The group took a look at the iPhone 4 pre-order meltdown, how a reservation is not a pre-order, and your best bets to get a new iPhone on the first day. The discussed the popularity of the iPhone, AT&T and Apple’s culpability for problems, and why the iPhone generates so much buzz and Android phones don’t. They also look at the new Mac mini’s key features, how it fits into the home theater market, and what it means for the future of the Apple TV. Safari 5’s new Reader feature also gets the third degree, eliciting strong feelings from the user, the content creator, and Web publisher perspectives.
