Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Todd’s Apple One impressions
  2. Jon ordered an iPhone 12 Pro Max, 256. Cheap Spigen case on the way to hold me over until the BookBook ships. A friend of mine is switching from Android, what do we think his experience will be? He’s used a Macbook and an iPad for years, but this is his first time on iOS as his phone.
  3. Raspberry Pi 400
    Built into a keyboard
  4. Jon is still waiting for his PiBoy – Ordered on 8/15, it entered “in processing” on Oct 25

  5. Akai wireless Bluetooth MIDI controller. Interesting approach to pairing. Different from any other BT pairing I’ve seen for iOS/iPadOS
  6. Todd finally updated his iPad mini 4 from iOS 10.3.3 to iPadOS 14.2.
    71 apps that couldn’t be updated under 10.3.3 were
    No more Sid Meier’s Civilization!
    Noticeable battery drain for the first two or three days after the update. Seems “normal” now
  7. Nov. 10 Apple event
    Apple always has feature differentiation between Pro and non-Pro models
    Guessing MacOS Big Sur will be available that day or soon after
    So, what will be the difference between Apple Silicon Macbook Air and Macbook Pro?
    Touchbar? Or, actual touch-screen?
  8. Jon’s funny Hawaiian connection this week: Pu Pu Platter – at a Mexican restaurant
