iPad live #27: Dead on Arrival

We're listening to Steve Jobs lay the smackdown on Android and BlackBerry tablets, and watching Apple take the iPad back to the Mac. The stage is set for 2011 folks. This is iPad live!


Thanks to the the iPhone Blog Store for sponsoring the podcast, and to everyone who showed up for the live chat!

iPad live #27: Dead on Arrival


"Dead on arrival"?! This joke is getting old! From iPad live shows being corrupted and lost so we only get a few minutes of it, to downloading and streaming errors in the feed so we don't get it at all, It's getting tiresome getting screwed over over getting the iPad live podcast. Come on guys, get it together. I love this podcast because Rene is probably the most knowledgeable podcaster I know when it comes to iOS and i devices, but these podcasting screw ups are damaging my enthusiasm, the credibility and professionalism of this show as well as iPhone Live. I'm thankful for the depth of knowledge and appreciate the fact that these podcasters are putting their hard earned time in for our benefits, but I hope we can count on a certain level of reliability as well.

Wow, you guys are mean.
There was a problem with the hosting server, it's been resolved, and the direct download, play now, RSS, and iTunes links should all be working.
Enjoy the show.

If Steve were just a slight bit snarkkier, his next keynote could have slides like this:
Google: Bozos
RIM: Bozos
Microsoft: Extra Super Bozos

@ All - Because you're perfect and NEVER make a mistake or have technical trouble, you can hold the TiPb to the standards. As Mr. Ritchie said in his comment, it's a problem with the server and they fixed it. Also, this stuff is free...

You mentioned costume ideas for the halloween episode.
For Rene I suggest the Android Robot.It might be hard to put together but totally worth it.
