Oh, and by the time you read this or hear this pocast, it will almost be time for unspecified iPhone news! YAY for rumors that can’t be proven but have a logical consistency!

The Daily Discussion

On February 4, 2011, in Podcast, TechFan, by Tim Robertson
Tim and David take a look at the NEW publication, The Daily. Is the subscription magazine on iPad finally done right, or is it more of the same? Macworld Expo 2011 has come and gone, and the guys have some ideas on how to make it better next year. Plus, Sony introduces the new PSP 2, or whatever it will be called, and Nintendo states that download games will be tied to devise, NOT to user accounts. Much fodder to chew on this week!
