MobileViews Podcast 244: People who live in glass buildings in Apple Park, shouldn’t…

In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Longer upgrade cycles and growing purchases of used smartphones said to threaten flagship sales

    “Back in 2014, the average upgrade cycle was 23 months – likely attributable to most consumers upgrading every two years, while a much smaller number upgraded every year. But that number has already hit 31 months, says BayStreet Research, and is set to climb higher still”

  2. Google launched a simple browser-based sequencer for making music
  3. Google Research Blog. Mobile Real-time Video Segmentation – green screen video without a green screen.
  4. 9to5Mac”: New lower cost MacBook Air? Probably at the cost of losing ports.
    Jon’s got a defense of going with less ports… innovation in mobile workspace design
  5. Gizmodo. 911 calls from Apple Park – employees walking into the glass walls. People who live in glass houses should not run into them.
