The nerd who does not look like a nerd, good show but i taught Brian just kept agreeing with you, i wonder was he just being polite

Rene Ritchie says:

Polite in relation to what? He explained his reasoning -- and often the science behind it -- for all his opinions. How can you be polite about that?

uwatto says:

I just felt even if he didnt agree he just would have, don't get me wrong i taught he was great, i followed him on twitter after the show, great show thanks

Why did you guys take down the post about iPad calendar screenshots from yesterday?

Rene Ritchie says:

We didn't take it down. It was screwing up the page rendering for some reason so I just pulled it from the Home page. The URL still works fine.

Great show, René. For all it seems your discussants on various podcasts push for rumours, it's the analysis (yours) that is becoming tops in the business, eg top 3 on Techmeme right now on analysis rather than a rumour, that's siegler/gruber level. More like this one with Klug, please, first rate!

Good show, although the comments about AT&T retroactively killing off the unlimited data plan is wrong. I upgraded from iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 and still have unlimited data. Not sure where the info you guys were talking about is coming from?....


henrymagnusrex says:

No, they were correct. The point about retroactively killing unlimited data is not that ATT kicked you off your plan. It is that when you reach 2 GB of data, they simply throttle you down to unusable speeds. For the same $30 a month, you can get a 3 GB capped data plan with no throttling-which is obviously a better value. So essentially, ATT killed the grandfathered unlimited data plan.

Thanks for the great podcast. Didn't have time to listen to the whole thing until tonight. Brian was great. He is so intelligent and has a very scientific approach to the products discussed. Not going to lie, some of the tech talk was hard for me to follow, but super great to listen to and learn about. Thanks!!!
