Buzz Out Loud 1585: Girls just wanna Pinterest (Podcast)
Sure, there's a new iPad to discuss, a mind-controlled skateboard to tell stories about, lawsuits against Apple over Siri, and the thing where Ray Kurzweil doesn't think there's intelligent life in the universe. But Sharon Vaknin is on the show today, so as soon as Pinterest comes up, that's all we can talk about! PIN ALL THE THINGS! Plus, some news, I swear.
INTO IT NOT INTO IT:
AJ from Los Angeles has a prediction on the iPhone 5.
Collin Davies says he is not excited about the latest Apple Product.
Dan in Salt Lake City is super frustrated with ICS and Google.
Hey Buzz Crew,
As a loyal AT&T customer for over 10 years and an iPhone owner for over 4 I was incensed when I began to be throttled in late February. Due to the success of Matt Spacarelli in small claims court, I began to plot my REVENGE!!! When I saw that my iPhone 4S had magically became a 4G phone overnight my bile began to rise and I was ready to add this to my list of complaints. But, lo and behold, my speeds have increased from a throttled .2 Mbps, to 2 Mbps on 3G, and now 8 Mbps! So, until I get throttled again later this month, AT&T can consider me a happy customer! Love the show.
The elephant in the room omission from the new iPad is the failure to incrementally increase the maximum amount of storage.
Does that relate to the flash memory crisis from the tsunami?
Does that relate to a technical/financial issue (reaching the end of Moore’s law)?
Is that an attempt to force iCloud on users?
Molly the iPhone is five years old and there are 500,000 apps. The iPad is two years old and there are 200,000 apps. Do the math.
