In Episode 8 of the Beyond Devices podcast, we discuss some of the recent criticisms of Apple Music from some prominent Apple commentators, whether they have merit, and what can be done about them. Our Question of the Week is about Windows 10, Microsoft’s big new operating system upgrade, including the context and history behind it, the major features, and how it’s likely to impact Microsoft and its partners. Our final topic is Buzzfeed’s report that the long-awaited new Apple TV might make an appearance at September’s iPhone event. And we close with our Weekly Pick, which this time around is a TV show recommendation from Aaron. As usual, the SoundCloud version is embedded below, and you can find links to other versions under that, along with show notes and relevant links.
We invite listeners to submit questions for subsequent weeks in the comments below, on Twitter (@jandawson, @aaronmiller), or via email (jan at jackdawresearch dot com).
