Then, the panel of Jeff Gamet, Guy Serle, David Ginsburg, Jim Rea, Brittany Smith, and Andrew Orr turns their attention to the Brooks Nader story of AirTag tracking, and whether this is new, or just calling attention to the amount of tracking that has always gone on, and how it is...

MacVoices

Our discussion of what the MacVoices Live! panel of David Ginsburg, Frank Petrie, Jeff Gamet, Patrice Brend’amour and Jim Rea expect and want to see in 2022 finishes up with more on the Windows-on-macOS debate, the need for Apple to continually release new hardware updates, and why the iPhone release schedule has become a requirement rather than an option. Some final desires include Apple-branded monitors and routers, and better Apple documentation. (Part 4)

MacVoices

The extended Siri discussion wraps up with a comparison to a very old (and fondly remembered) program. The next set of expectations and desires included why Apple needs to focus on a HomePod ecosystem or whether the existing iPhone/app is adequate, and how it has one key feature that may be an advantage or a disadvantage. Have an Amazon Echo? It may be able to do more than you think, but you would never know it. Next, the Windows-on-macOS debate takes center stage. (Part 3)

The MacVoices Live! panel of David Ginsburg, Frank Petrie, Jeff Gamet, Patrice Brend’amour and Jim Rea continued the discussion of Siri, comparing and contrasting its usefulness and accuracy to other smart home assistants. Drawing from science fiction, the group talked about what they would like Siri to be and whether that is or is not realistic. Is Siri good enough to support Apple’s Music Voice Plan?
