MacJury #1110: Evaluating the iPhone 4S Launch
Shortly after the iPhone 4S announcement event wrapped up, The MacJury convened to evaluate the latest news from Apple, including the issue surrounding the naming convention, the new camera, Siri, and the internal hardware changes to the device. The role of voice recognition in gaming, how your relationship with your phone may change once you can talk to it, and the inevitable Star Trek comparisons start off the conversation. Along the way Find My Friends is evaluated, iCloud tradeoffs and dependence are weighed, Cards’ usefulness is examined, and Tim Cook’s performance is discussed by the panel of Lex Friedman, Chuck La Tournous, Omaha Sternberg and host Chuck Joiner.
