Podcast 516: The Pokémon invasion
Glenn and Susie talk about the iOS 10 beta, macOS Sierra beta, new Mac malware, and whaaaaat is the deal with Pokémon Go.
The betas are heeeeeeere! But who cares, right, because everyone in the world is out trying to catch them some Pokémon or what have you. Glenn and Susie talk about the security/privacy angle (that’s since been addressed by the 1.0.1 update), as well as what a fun craze this is turning out to be. We like fun!
Oh, and eventually we get around to discussing iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, both now in beta. We still feel weird talking to our Macs, all that time we spent tagging Faces in previous iPhoto versions was for naught, and iPhone battery life will take a hit (especially if you’re also trying to play Pokémon). But we love the beta program in general, and these particular public betas actually do feel pretty solid.
