My last thoughts 💭 within the series turns my attention to macOS Mojave and what this means for creatives along with everyday users. I originally thought this would be quick and dirty, only to find there’s much to be discovered here.

Apple makes it clear their ❤️ indeed is within the Mac 🖥 💻 platform. There have been many rumors of integration and complete merging of their platforms. This couldn’t be further from their vision.

From new features like dark mode to security and privacy that indirectly calls out companies such as Facebook, they are on a journey that ultimately will impact us all. Join me here with Those Conspicuous Millennials, and as always, share your thoughts!

This was the keynote with the least updates, yet very intriguing. Not only are we watching to see how they really view the in-home experience(s), but also how they work with their stakeholders as their competitors.

Again, I do my best to high level most announcements while giving some thought to what was shared vs. what wasn’t. This space will continue to heat up and gain competitiveness steam as it matures. The question is: who will own the living room space? Chime in and share your thoughts 💭 !

watchos-2018-06-06-07-52-36.m4a

Yesterday, I covered specifically iOS 12. Today, I am covering watchOS and what Apple has learned (some things from Samsung I’d add) and implemented within their latest version: watchOS 5.

Some highlights and general thoughts 💭 on why this is important and perhaps how it’ll continue to shape the wearable space that is still polarized to this day. (Check out my prior podcast on wearables)

As always, please share your thoughts on if you think this will make an impact on the market!

What an exciting week in the tech industry! 2018 has been exceptional so far. First, Facebook kicked off their Developer Conference on May 1st and 2nd. Then Google had their Google I/O event May 8-10. Simply incredible and gives you insight into what direction each company is headed.

First, I will be diving in with  WWDC event(s) that started yesterday on June 4th. There are 4 main pillars: iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS. Today, I will be focusing solely on iOS and split them into 4 separate sections to make it a bit easier to follow.

Listen along as I high level precisely what they are doing. Once I get to the end of this series, I will specifically address the differences between these 3 companies (named above) along with what they have in common to suggest where we (as an industry) may be headed.

As always, love hearing your opinions, so please share your thoughts 💭 here or on Twitter. Enjoy!

I wanted to address a question I have been asked and discussed practically everyday since it first went public: What is Google Duplex and why is it so polarizing?

To REALLY see for yourself, I would suggest going to YouTube and search it. That is 5 mins that may change your perception of how crazy AI/ML has become. On this particular podcast, I wanted to share with you my initial thoughts of why it’s a bit of both. I would argue it has the ability to make life a bit easier while being inevitable.

As always, I really look forward to hearing your thoughts on Google Duplex. Sound off below!

memorial-day-reflection-2018-05-28-15-36-29.wav

I wanted to take time out today to really think 🤔💭 about why Memorial Day really matters. While it has started (and still is) about those who have fallen, I wanted to openly discuss how their personal sacrifices have given us opportunities beyond what we deserve. Even those of us who haven’t served have opportunities everyday to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Please take a listen and share with me your thoughts!

I wanted to do a quick podcast on my thoughts regarding the wearable segment. I am finding many people are polarized and it seems as if it is a solution looking for a problem for many. Are you using it for fitness? Notifications? Perhaps very specific app(s) that you feel you couldn’t do without on your wrist? Take a listen and please share your personal thoughts on wearables. I would like to know do you wear one (or not) and if so,  what do you utilize most? If not, what would it take to get you to wear one?
