Macworld Pundit Showdown XXI

After our live show at last month’s Macworld/iWorld event, we return to the comfort of the Macworld Podcast studios for another edition of the Macworld Pundit Showdown—and just in time for April Fools’ Day. Fortunately, our panel of pundits—senior writer Lex Friedman, associate editor Serenity Caldwell, TechHive executive editor Jason Cross, and The Magazine executive editor Glenn Fleishman—are anything but fools. They are ready, however, to identify all the foolishness going on in the tech world, as we award points to whoever’s got the most unique takes on the latest news.

Show Notes

We’ve broken out the Pundit Showdown format more than a few times now. As always, we’re indebted to the BBC Radio Five program Fighting Talk for the inspiration.

In case you missed some of the headlines providing the grist for our Pundit Showdown mill, we talk about former Adobe chief technology officer Kevin Lynch joining Apple. We also discuss the possibility of an Apple-built smartwatch, that puzzling Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event, and the wonderful Super Stickman Golf 2.
