2024 FLASH! Dear Listeners: Gene Steinberg’s Tech Night Owl LIVE returned as a weekly podcast on May 18 with better audio and fewer ads.  And we continue to post our famous, fearless cutting-edge commentaries on the world of consumer electronics, with the emphasis on Apple Inc., and pop culture, in The Tech Night Owl BLOG.

Gene Steinberg first began to explore the world of technology in the 1980s. He has written 30 books and numerous  articles on these subjects. And each week on The Tech Night Owl LIVE, Gene, an award-winning tech journalist, speaks directly about the industry’s movers and shakers, including corporate leaders and industry analysts, featuring the most respected journalists who cover personal technology. The Tech Night Owl LIVE also focuses on pop culture with a sci-fi and tech slant.

Latest Weekly Episode — June 15: AI guru Ed Watal joins Gene to talk about the focus and very real shortcomings of Apple’s new Apple Intelligence initiative, introduced at the June 2024 Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC). He discusses some of the key elements of Apple’s software release and versioning strategy, and the limited launch of its AI technology, which arrived in beta, only available in U.S. English for a select few platforms that are also in early developer condition, including iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. He points out that the tech expert community wasn’t impressed, particularly with the limited launch and lack of Siri integration. Worse, over 90% of current iPhone users are excluded, raising questions about inclusivity in Apple’s AI strategy. What about Apple’s reliance on OpenAI’s ChatGPT for much of the technology, and how does that help Apple pave its own way in developing a secure and user friendly implementation of AI? Watal is the founder and principal of Intellibus, an IT strategy consultancy.
