August 23, 2014 — Daniel Eran Dilger, Ben Williams, and Kirk McElhearn

You’ll hear from cutting-edge commentator Daniel Eran Dilger, of Roughly Drafted Magazine and AppleInsider. This week he’ll continue to talk about the platform wars, but he’ll also focus on the continuing demands from the tech media that Apple build cheap gear and why it doesn’t make sense. You’ll also hear his comments about the issues facing Google and companies building Android gear and what Microsoft has to do to solve long-standing problems. Do they all really want to be Apple?

If you are irritated by offensive web advertising, such as pop-ups and interstitials (ads that insert themselves above content on a site), you’ll want to hear from Ben Williams, director of PR for Adblock Plus. He’ll talk about protecting yourself from annoying online ads, and the advantages of the company’s free browser add-on.

You’ll also hear from Kirk McElhearnMacworld’s “iTunes Guy,” who will discuss whether you need gigabit Internet, or even 4K TVs for that matter. He’ll also talk about blind tests pitting CD against higher resolution audio, what lossless audio is all about, and whether most of you can reliably hear a real difference between a CD and a compressed audio file, such as the AAC tracks Apple offers via iTunes.
