This Week's SponsorUnite 4 - Turn websites into apps on your Mac.
This week we talk about Google Photos (https://photos.google.com/) which, of course, prompts us to talk about the business model differences between Apple and Google (http://www.marco.org/2015/05/29/why-not-google).
Moltz mentions Edward Snowden and gets his name wrong but he’s apparently not the only one who does that (https://twitter.com/charlesarthur/status/606483046745964544).
We talk about Photos features (http://www.macworld.com/article/2927919/googles-launches-new-photos-app-with-editing-tools-and-free-unlimited-storage.html) vis-a-vis Photos features (http://www.macworld.com/article/2916078/5-surprising-tips-for-apple-s-new-photos-app.html). No, these simple noun naming conventions aren’t confusing.
Dan talks about his piece on Six Colors speculating on what will be announced at WWDC this year (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/06/what-to-expect-when-youre-expecting-wwdc-2015/).
We think the situation with Apple’s court-appointed overseer sucks (http://daringfireball.net/linked/2015/05/28/shit-bromwich).
We also talk about HomeKit as devices for it are starting to show up (http://www.macstories.net/news/the-first-homekit-enabled-devices-begin-shipping/).
Dan discusses his travels with his Apple Watch (http://sixcolors.com/post/2015/05/travels-with-the-apple-watch/).
Apple changed the way that the fitness tracker works and… it doesn’t seem to work very well (http://www.mcelhearn.com/did-apple-bait-and-switch-apple-watch-customers-with-fitness-tracker-feature-promises/).
We bemoan the lack of good podcast creation apps but the money just isn’t there (http://www.allenpike.com/2014/podcast-recording/).
Brent Simmons has resigned from Q Branch, if you follow the movements of celebrity developers (http://inessential.com/2015/06/02/resigning_from_q_branch). Actually, he’s done that whether you do or not.
Our thanks this week go to Harry’s (harrys.com). Harry’s sells premium shaving products for much less than those crappy blades that you have to get someone to unlock from a cabinet. Use the coupon code “REBOUND” to get $5 off! Don’t wait, get the shave you deserve.
