Tim and David discuss Time Warner Cable being potentially purchased by Comcast, rudeness of content owners over their own creation, Apple overtaking Microsoft in PC sales, TouchID not working correctly on an iPhone 5s, House of Cards, and much more.
Guy has his new iPhone 5S so everyone should be pleased that he’ll stop whining about it now. Gaz is VERY unhappy with iTunes and podcasts so we can rant about that. However he did make a framed picture so less unhappy. Not sure what the scale would be between happy or not at this point. Businesses in general seem to be pretty happy with iOS so that’s a good thing as lot’s of companies want to cater to that market. Gaz and Guy break it down a bit and say why in their opinion it’s the better platform than other mobile devices.
Guy’s Pick: An anti-app pic. DON’T get the new version of QuickOfficce as it no longer supports multiple cloud services but just Google Drive
Gaz’s App Pick: App Deleting. Either App Delete from our friend Reggie Ashworth for $7.99 or AppZapper $12.95
I also use Hazel ($28.00) to delete Apps but that app also does so much more which if you don’t need means you’re probably better off with certainly one of those above.
People’s Pick: None this week
What does the English vs American way of saying deep fried thin potato slices, a 1950’s era western satire, the possession of current mobile phones, a conversation of potential new features in an operating system, and the regretted consumption of iced tea flavored vodka drinks have in common? This podcast
Guy’s Pick: 1Password4 by Agilebits $40 on the Mac App Store. Cream of the crop for password managers.
Gaz’s App Pick: Time-Lapse. May have mentioned it before but using it again to get those walking pictures finished and it’s a great little App. £2.99 or $4.99
People’s Pick: None this week
So STILL no new iPhones for either GMan, but it’s looking like Gaz will get his first. Not that Guy is bitter or anything. They can’t remember what the bet was they made that if Guy loses, Gaz punches him in the nose so Guy lucks out there. A discussion into what the next iPad might be like and then it ALL goes wrong in a hilarious way.

Gaz’s App Pick: Onyx
People’s Pick: Eric Diaz: Angry Birds Star Wars II $0.99
It seems both GMen are getting new iPhones. Guy will be seeing his probably sooner than Gaz due to Apple’s unofficial US first policy. Gaz has a tale of woe about Apple’s AppleTV update which seems to have disappeared. They talk about some of their likes and dislikes about iOS 7 and if you like the after show stuff, you’ll LOVE this episode! Big thanks to all our G+ fans for all their contributions.
Guy’s Pick: Storyist by Storyist Software $59 download, $79 for boxed copy. Companion iOS app $9.99 for Mac and for iOS
Gaz’s App Pick: LibreOffice is an offshoot from the old OpenOffice.org application suite, now renamed Apache OpenOffice.
People’s Pick: From Karl Madden -:- Stickman Downhill for IOS £0.69 ($0.99 Guess)
Possible People Pick? There are games and then there are GAMES that suck away hours of your life! Stickman Downhill is a simple premise, just control your little guy on the bike as he powers down various hillsides while jumping over gaping gaps and petrifying plummets. It might not be the most original game but it’s darn addictive and highly entertaining.
It’s almost all about the new phones. Guy doesn’t necessarily want one as his 4S is still working well, but ropes his son into the equation so he (sigh) has no choice. Gaz wants one now because of the better camera but ALSO wants a new iPad Mini that he has no choice about either because his family is always (sigh) on the full sized one. What are GMen to do except just bite the bullet and (sigh) go ahead and buy new iPhones. Because they really have no choice as was reasoned above.
Guy’s Pick: Art Text by Belight software. Easy to use layer based art program. $19.99 on the Mac App Store

People’s Pick: No People’s Pick this week…sigh
The GMen are back and just before an Apple event that will no doubt delight and astound us all! Or maybe it’ll just be a phone or two. Anyway Gaz and Guy have a good time catching up on Guy’s Florida trip and his attempts as pitiful as they were at surfing. They look at some issues of the day and continuously get sidetracked away from what they started talking about. In other words, just as it ever was!
Guy’s Pick: The Google+ app for keeping up with all you do on G+. Free
Gaz’s App Pick: Delectable Wine Free. 17 year old + rating
People’s Pick: From Gary Apter If it hasn’t been mentioned previously, I recommend Bubble Fever for iOS. The warning is that I’m finding it totally addictive – so user beware! I think it is free and I haven’t been tempted for in-app purchases…
