Episode 126 - The Problem With Eight

In this weeks show we (Scotty & John) discuss the initial problems with iOS 8 for both users and developers. We also ask is the iPhone 6 too big? Will we see a smaller 6S next year? Will see any new Macs or iPads this year? Scotty also shares his git problems while John talks about some current debate about people baying iPhones just to ship to China. Finally Scotty announces he has left App.net.

Once again this week I (Scotty) have had recording problems and whole bunch of crackle appears at around 14 minutes. I am hoping this will never happen again as I have replaced my entire entire recording system since this recording in an attempt to solve the problem.

Again it’s a little late as I have been really busy. In this episode Scotty and John talk about how to build teams. Should Apple open an engineering office away from Cupertino and if so where.
