Ep. 118: New MacBooks and iPads, and will Ustream save Charlie Sheen?This week we're buried under a ton of Apple news. We've got new test results for the MacBook Pro and 13-inch MacBook Air, plus there's the new iPad 2 to talk about. Later, Charlie Sheen goes rogue on Ustream, and we ask if celeb web-casting the ultimate...
It's really about that I -- -- that fixes for those who stayed two extra. As of little data and music. Of them have been impressive that's I think other -- -- there we go as a but he still in -- Monday and hello Tesla Julie guys -- actually just and I were both out last week -- -- had -- that next out of here. -- -- And -- are odd thing. I -- Charlie Sheen yes the Charlie's corner you stream we will discuss. The concept of some liberties and -- got mainstream media outlets and going -- -- only and the Asia shortly. The first thanks to Julie for -- until last week Scott. -- I -- it was fantastic. And for those are looking for god we clothes and we voted him off the show. It's awfully island piano we'll be back next week week week invited it would become incident with us and at the last minute it was pretty -- -- I think you'll be -- this because I'm Adam touted its who have -- -- yet there. Locally outlet that would go I think -- area being the man and a moderator okay so now know -- -- -- good target if well a lot happier target appropriate and and a lot happened while I was gone agility was -- last week Apple announced the iPad video yet is San Francisco have one of the big media event -- Steve Jobs even came out on stage how -- that for grades and if you. Luckily there was no wind. -- -- he had you've got line of thin he looked very but the iPad to also thin. So maybe it's appropriate. I I it's those pretty impressive looking with propaganda mark implying that throughout -- night he's doing he got sick on purpose to -- -- for. Thank you so hard for me now Hillary used you so you told me off the air that you thought it was a pretty impressive looking and peace. -- I like I like it from its one on its what last year's event. Okay it's what the bird's eye patch event with the cameras on the one thing -- -- -- that was an expected was the 33% thinner. And still maintaining the same battery life with a higher performing process looks like the three G and 3GS were thinner than the original iPhone in Canada humps and I definitely I'd I'd definitely like that magnetic cover arm as an idea yeah -- I I don't know octagon or the polyurethane one and not the whether. Another roots Corinthian leather while I'm just saying I mean if you're gonna drop close to seven the books for -- cover. You know this. -- may be another thirty wanna get the -- capacity of -- the -- and that's a good point it just gets too close -- daddy -- okay close to that financially Mineola -- two and a -- adamantly does is put it -- you to -- I'll bet that -- good point I was an -- to from a -- seventy for the case -- not as well before yes yes and and -- can get -- From daisy case in the meantime Democrats are gonna get -- -- cases -- and Scott sorry guys yeah. I I -- cases an idea of how you see analyzed the I'm gonna -- stand go to it is off if they're they you know people going setting -- take it yeah well it's sort of reverted Galicia I'm the port personally I'll be sure -- gets it. I'm glad that I am -- -- how well -- I'm tempted to get an iPad two even though I've got a perfectly fine functional I've had one I don't even know why. But -- -- like I gotta get one but I Lenovo. See me I want one but I guess I'm kind of like I'm doing that someone that on the like on the fence about that exactly as. Maybe I might want to wait a minute before getting it just to be sure that I want it because I want in now because. It's just came out this that very thing that's what happens and I might just try to wait and every -- -- -- I might not I don't know but. Also -- -- any negative feedback any any complaints or any probably glitches and problems we noted -- doing right now when selling their iPad ones. Couple people here in the office fighting to keep on FaceBook selling there if I had no intention of selling mine but I -- thought had crossed my mind the get. I've got the 32. -- first -- the key to -- at like three -- for it. Model wanted to send an insight Florida before they announced the iPad to reference them -- got 400 dollar sixteen gigs of blade -- -- a year -- these data that feel good condition you know if you get -- we -- that's five to leave attempted at all by this I've had to I I -- you -- the concept of tablets be on actually -- -- because -- barely. Yes need one. That's that's the thing does and does not in the -- really -- the staff noticing there's been -- -- path now -- drop 600 bucks or what have you lake I can't do I can't. -- -- -- I don't have to do anything really is a the other editors here so it's like I can just like popped out and it does -- million just because I'm gonna be down idea. And I really don't need a tablet apparently don't need it like I have my phone via laptop -- that's not like that's and -- -- it it's okay. Nobody really needs it it's -- one of -- and Xbox theater and a bomb but it ended -- police -- to implement and courses and -- -- -- enough to do. Its -- but I would you sure about is big in my left -- Today I use the iPad more than any single laptop I've got sitting around it's become my kind of go to. Posting -- accounting kitchen in. F -- -- so homeland you know whatever it's really become might default laptop in -- way and I'm curious to see whether the iPad to. Will be a better laptop substitute with like faster processors and stuff and more memory and the only drawback of the fact he's still typing on the screen -- get one of those old that its it and IB interest to see what kind of -- cases people come up with for that. Because there'll Bluetooth keyboard -- is for the first iPad that weren't that great but the concept was good a good another Google docs works better on the iPad I mean that's key. A -- leveraging in August and in terms of our industry forgetting is also that. It opens a door were possible app reviews and stuff like that you could. Possibly seek out vendors want their apps -- get you know. If their apps in the iTunes temperatures and basically saying for us we can get enough at night your apps -- for vendors out there that's and that's it just to put it I mean for the first iPad we did a -- coverage on a laptop like. The last episode 65000. Apps I am sure we both men and onto this place that we can write about for an iPad -- or or any tablet. But for Michael I do have one gripe with the F jobs press conference bomb because you know my collection hearing about this and out of. Major I I didn't like the fact that they made up that generic like bumblebee slash and -- the content to decide and Andrew I think. In in the case of if you're if you're an innovator in your leader you don't look back -- -- look over your shoulder. And by him doing that facility is threatened by the inclination -- into I think -- -- -- but I and and I and I and I find that's and I find that insecure and immature and get through because. When if -- talk a perfect example I mean everybody's talked to a girl before and there are two kinds of wraps is the -- where you. You brag about yourself or you you -- over her -- man. And I think Steve Jobs at the pool over X-Men may cause an eleven though that's -- daily terminology that I understand your general -- you know what I mean like. -- download -- got no job. It. That but the fact that anyway it's a good but but you do but you do bring up a good point which is that. The two B tablets people were talking about before now that Motorola's doom and the ten inch version of the Samsung galaxy. Both now look very. Dated -- or -- -- not it's not a sharpening more compared to the -- had to because one it's still cheaper. And the zoom you know we'll have flash Sunday but not obliged -- -- it's 800 and a -- and for the of healing your hand and it if you want that end the the ten inch galaxy. Is gonna be twice as big if not more so and still cost more eccentric that and the galaxy the -- -- he was wanting it and it it's all the same like with like Apple Computer's first PCs are not very attractive to personally and through a laptop but they're cheaper they can be cheaper the other tablets not cheaper -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Since they're more expensive not saying again yet meaning the price and definitely gonna -- you gotta have a low starting price even if you have to step up model I'll assume they're gonna have to -- -- -- like seventy hours more than he can comparable iPod but this new entry level. You gotta have that. It's like a logical entry price point. Princess and I don't like it at 32 so with a -- it was a 499 but I want to -- a four and I'd done that sounds and I understand that. Even knowing -- it's been a hundred bucks more you gotta have that psychological. Entry price point. I'm gonna take a brief -- -- right here. -- -- -- -- Out there in in in watcher and listener land that we have got some stuff to give away. And we've got some trivia question to ask. I'm gonna play a little game which still doesn't have a name I still like office Marty's -- that I should get some of the street is really is the -- with -- two -- Julie will play for a couple of listeners so if you wanna play -- make yourself known of the chat room and they'll pick a couple people. Hopefully people we haven't played with yet although eventually will let people play again because the so -- people out there I got some good questions get some good prizes -- J&J -- -- authority. As he played before. You don't arts a look at some other people who have complete yet everybody it's Arabs emirates -- -- -- every time guy's guy at work reading to him okay. I am armament I think you -- if you see on a system cigarette ash. -- -- We're gonna throw a question I've got a ton of new stuff to -- way to after this week is likely that -- them moving soon. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So I get to be shopping -- will step to bring in to give -- it's some really insanely cool stuff the new stuff some vintage stuff it's gonna be allowed. They got that that's -- -- constituted about ten minutes. And we'll start the we'll start to question asking good questions as to how about how about I asked the questions -- have you got some questions. I -- I can Google's summer equipment I don't think you hope both the questions for one -- be like -- -- -- it takes a long time to find good ones. The -- of research -- mature audiences are really correct and stuff you know a lot of them are ambiguous -- -- dated. Those who don't. -- let's come -- the most as outlandish and pick from one. I come in here this was Umar relaxed time you make me think I'm not threaten your taxes rules are relaxed I go to enter into it isn't -- that does have fireworks aren't exactly -- time to -- -- the -- Let me -- via an X to close out our iPad discussion let me give -- a little number -- -- -- posted on the business insider website. And that is that Apple in the last quarter generated four point six billion dollars in revenue from the iPad not -- profit that's just straight up revenue with money -- -- That's bigger then then the money in the same quarter Michael -- in the same quarter quarter Microsoft got from your entertainment and devices division which includes. Xbox Kinect I think the Zune itself has only three point seven billion. And bigger than Dell's consumer business which generated 3.3 billion in revenue in the same quarter. So I -- is bigger than Dell's consumer business and -- at Microsoft's. Xbox Kinect slip unedited by Xbox is now threatening profitable estimate that bag became the actors would connect -- Let's look at that. Now what he -- it now do you have enough room to set up -- connect. Okay so they'll -- -- I see is I don't have enough room I have like six feet between the -- of the couch in the front of the connect. Camera and that's. Only enough for about half the -- -- really not enough space mean that I could take it in government and I think he's a violent layout -- I'd like sixty in the bedroom for between TV in the and in this understand and on the cap on the dead. And nobody laughed like this is the bear bear bare minimum and even then it'll -- get some games. Like my new place unfortunately moving averages -- to connect like in the in the media -- -- -- kitchen itself that are about size limit set it up somewhere else about the backyard and and cute but this route cables -- -- -- -- Speaking of of -- some -- another Apple question FOIA and that Julie. You have looked at a succession of new Mac books and content -- are a quick yes it's -- rumored to have some of the chat rooms and electrical of questions to ask you and you answer yeah. I know there at three gets -- -- researcher questions and then logging activities the globally -- is it that -- -- And I should've got spike at the question he wants -- if you wanna put together contribute less and and it isn't that the console that rewards to ask you questions that does have nothing to do and I'm really readings. That's that's fantastic sets them up get some questions already got it up after me -- a -- planned launch -- -- I I wish I get had a big -- -- everybody what can we get him -- activity affect my eyes to my MacBook question we'll -- which is duly tested the fifteen inch new sandy bridge. MacBook Pro may. To thirteen -- sandy bridge MacBook Pro oh and before that just before that the thirteen inch MacBook Air that -- that -- deadly fall. So -- 313 inch ones and but he thinks the best that overall considering that TC -- want to cut it. We really like I don't Eileen and I haven't seen any. Of that -- was all liberal political -- this way. I guess the would you go with a more powerful but -- thirteen inch pro -- -- -- but super slim thirteen inch air. Now at the event and because it has has more. More more everything VMware everything I mean -- can't. And handsome than it does and -- in mind and body through this and analyze he. And good but it also had a -- that's yeah so in mounts like that -- over a thousand bucks for something oh and spin it. Maybe if it was 999 just like the eleven inch ones might be more appealing manner -- Outfitted with any data on -- with feeling and estimates and stunning -- like a raw power and I had giant says this method friends are pretty impressive. The benchmark -- often we're pretty crazy yet but between it's interesting answers -- was an amateur but of a difference between the morning. Of the protein that really jumped at the -- I mean if it's that -- just for the Quad Core yet as easy to -- that no. I'm between the 213 inches -- -- It's. And politics hasn't won via via. As an in that it was not been a huge chips in performance sound. Our battery probably amount -- payments you know I mean 76. Let's. My only concern for the other thirteen inches all you have is the new Intel HD integrated graphics -- Which isn't great for gaming only because now molds and into the computer gaming -- and going to be and could certainly Dragon Age who think the computer version of the console version and which -- -- have. Already clocked in 23 hours playing it like the past week even though we were at account for most of the waste. So so that's how exciting Dragon Age two is. Oh speaking recycling -- during the iPad. To press conference I was across the street. At the the the Nintendo -- lot of keynote. At the game developers conference where we were promised big exciting news from breaking. Crazy news and at the end it was they really I could even tell what -- -- breaking news was I guess who was the fact that they're doing that 3-D S new Mario game. I guess that was it all right think's gonna through that application and -- -- -- although metal and well. I mean Netflix I think it's coming to 3-D -- that was in there and they're gonna have -- movie trailers via Netflix on -- that's kind of cool. And via a software update a little bit later -- you'll be able to use the two cameras on the front of the DS that the 3-D -- to shoot 3-D Nvidia. Instead of just still still photo so that's all mechanical and if you bought DS ware games on your. Two months and months to march too much into. What's going on. I guess so what's a better what's better entertainment down the deal iPad two or Nintendo three -- -- Entertainment -- -- -- you if you if -- trapped on an airplane and I could fix our photograph that's okay pair of ten hour battery. A battery aside. Our battery -- -- it weighs in on a flight all rights. Five better for watching a movie on -- her -- zenith three S at the actual -- screen on it -- it -- Had a chance. And I'm off for -- on -- -- -- -- -- public I'm -- with the evo studio. -- -- read the L with a 33 on it get a -- medical. Well listen I -- -- -- you're watching this before.
