This is the first episode of the Beyond Devices Podcast, featuring Jan Dawson and Aaron Miller. In this episode, we look forward to Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference next week, and discuss some of what we’re expecting, and some of what we’d like to see Apple announce. Next week, we’ll be looking back on and digesting the news from WWDC.
At the beginning of the episode, we also introduce ourselves as co-contributors to the podcast. Jan is the author of the Beyond Devices blog and the founder and Chief Analyst at Jackdaw Research, a research and advisory firm focused on the consumer technology market. Aaron is a business school professor who has authored several books in the iMovie: The Missing Manual series with David Pogue, and continues to keep a close eye on Apple.
You can also find the podcast on iTunes.
We refer to several posts and other items in the conversation this week – here are some links:
- Jan’s post on Apple’s music subscription service
- Jan’s post on Apple developing for Windows
- Brian Chen’s New York Times report which mentions that new Apple TV hardware won’t appear at WWDC
- Aaron’s iMovie blog (no longer being updated).
Please leave us a comment or get in touch via Twitter to give us feedback. We’d love to hear from you – this is very much a work in progress and we look forward to getting better over time!
