134: ‘Field Sobriety Test’, With Special Guest Guy English


00:00:00   yeah we can get right into it a long and when did you know you had your the dev [TS]

00:00:03   kit for Apple TV [TS]

00:00:04   yes and what's the story I mean I guess it doesn't matter I'm curious I did not [TS]

00:00:12   get the dev kit I guess I should have signed up for it I just assumed that I [TS]

00:00:15   would get a review review in it but they didn't a.m. I didn't get one till [TS]

00:00:21   yesterday so we're recording here on Friday October 30 I got mine from Apple [TS]

00:00:26   yesterday on 29th and I i dont think I touched one yet no I haven't since the [TS]

00:00:31   event last month are you going to post it on a lot of press outlets just signed [TS]

00:00:39   up and gone [TS]

00:00:40   yeah well I did is that what happened but I think a lot of them did get review [TS]

00:00:43   units too and I just you know it seems haphazard doesn't seem like there is any [TS]

00:00:48   rhyme or reason to it a cool guy who didn't like TechCrunch tengo until [TS]

00:00:53   yesterday either yeah I don't think any girl line now he didn't did really well [TS]

00:01:03   she had access to one and all that [TS]

00:01:05   yeah it's such a weird thing I get mad get so inside baseball but I guess [TS]

00:01:11   that's what the point of pride casters yeah he is that it was the least [TS]

00:01:16   secretive device give once it was unveiled you know so there's that it was [TS]

00:01:22   unveiled on stage in September I think they did a pretty good job keeping it [TS]

00:01:25   under wraps everybody knew that a new Apple TV was coming but nobody nobody [TS]

00:01:32   knew what the remote was exactly like her stuff but nothing I mean I'd end up [TS]

00:01:39   people who'd seen them but not right but then they started taking the developer [TS]

00:01:45   requests like the next day and some people started getting on like a week [TS]

00:01:51   later and I guess you're under an NDA you know based on your EDC account and [TS]

00:01:56   they weren't supposed to write about it but it certainly wasn't a well-kept [TS]

00:01:59   secret [TS]

00:02:00   there's an additional indicated [TS]

00:02:02   new and he got it could you not to do not let it never works the best the best [TS]

00:02:13   example of that would be the iFixit guys who signed up for the defecate agreed to [TS]

00:02:19   an NDA and then as soon as it came they take to get a pardon published there [TS]

00:02:24   they're taking part I was pretty frustrated actually because of various [TS]

00:02:34   things happen to do right and it so we don't want to piss him off and they [TS]

00:02:39   cannot do it like I think it's great that they did this I think it's good to [TS]

00:02:43   I think it was a mistake to sell into a book should be like double triple [TS]

00:02:48   depressive was going to be a white where do you think they did it well I think [TS]

00:02:54   they wanted everybody to get it you know [TS]

00:02:57   responsible and encourage people to work and probably have to listen you know [TS]

00:03:05   like maybe in a way that like Steve Jobs had to take a $1 salary and there were [TS]

00:03:12   some kind of legal [TS]

00:03:16   have to pay a CEO or something like that I swear that it was something and maybe [TS]

00:03:21   over something like that to where they have to sell it for some amount of money [TS]

00:03:24   is tight account for it in some way anyway so welcome to the talk show [TS]

00:03:31   America's favorite accounting accounts [TS]

00:03:34   sure but this week with Salesforce now so anyway though they had these out [TS]

00:03:44   there lots of journalists and writers block them even though they weren't [TS]

00:03:47   going to develop apps on them and I guess they mostly stuck to the NDA but [TS]

00:03:51   it wasn't like it was tough to get but then the reviews all there was clearly [TS]

00:03:55   like some some number of people just like without every other Apple devices [TS]

00:03:59   iPhones and iPads that they were they got pre-release access to them probably [TS]

00:04:05   about a week before and then the embargo was was clearly he was six six six [TS]

00:04:12   o'clock eastern on Wednesday cuz all of a sudden you do it right and I was [TS]

00:04:18   actually out it having dinner with our friend whiskas and Brady Haran you know [TS]

00:04:26   the guy from hello internet he was over here in the States we were how was I got [TS]

00:04:33   was sudden we were talking about the fact that there are no reviews of the [TS]

00:04:35   Apple TV and then we're at dinner and then all of a sudden it was like all of [TS]

00:04:40   a sudden they were like 15 reviews of that booty be but it was weird likes to [TS]

00:04:44   take you know I'm or wasn't on that list [TS]

00:04:47   TechCrunch wasn't on the list very strange and his teammates who was which [TS]

00:04:53   makes sense yeah a lot of media stuff together and christine is she said been [TS]

00:04:59   kicking ass yeah I just actually just before I we've sort of record actually [TS]

00:05:03   just linked to her review is the only one I've read completely in and just [TS]

00:05:08   like to accept that she nailed it I was like every single thing there is about [TS]

00:05:12   ya gettin get interviews and surface yeah [TS]

00:05:17   yeah interview Jony ive journey I and going to bank on it should have been [TS]

00:05:25   into it right when she did and she got to choose she's the one who got access [TS]

00:05:29   to when Tim Cook did the meet and greet with the teenagers at WWC yes she went [TS]

00:05:38   in that and I think that was a good impromptu I think it might have been but [TS]

00:05:46   I think it was you know it was clear you know right place right time you know [TS]

00:05:50   yeah exactly that's good yeah I know you've only had it a day ahead mind [TS]

00:05:59   longer guess I can talk about it as well and I am actually mad because if they [TS]

00:06:10   don't do another day of Kitimat he said this is my case my question I want [TS]

00:06:15   before we go on to is what was your experience like have you been able to [TS]

00:06:19   upgrade from the the betas of the OS to the gym [TS]

00:06:23   yeah it is but it didn't require using the diagnostic port or did it does not [TS]

00:06:32   support I mean that USB port right but they even tell you in the instructions [TS]

00:06:36   they're like USB seaport and then they're like this is his for diagnostics [TS]

00:06:40   yeah well you know count against you just go to the website you download the [TS]

00:06:48   package like the OS package and then you connect to itunes to it shows up in [TS]

00:06:55   iTunes and then you just click Restore [TS]

00:07:01   great so it's it's exactly like doing with it yet so you connected to your Mac [TS]

00:07:09   with USB like the phone and then you can just do it from the idea and its USB CD [TS]

00:07:16   which is one of the poorest out of being a potential [TS]

00:07:23   yes I guess if your computer was a MacBook the new the new MacBook one port [TS]

00:07:31   thing you would have to have a USB see the USBC cable yeah that's what I did [TS]

00:07:37   really yeah I mean when i buy the MacBook I like to do little things I've [TS]

00:07:46   known for years BC of one that turns your PC into so when did the App Store [TS]

00:07:55   go live yesterday ok I can tell you what time but I think about noon because what [TS]

00:08:02   we had to do with us so we had a GSM ended a few days then to get the App [TS]

00:08:10   Store and it was kind of confusing we needed to be download EOS get back onto [TS]

00:08:15   the device for the absolute of mistaken identification numbers identical [TS]

00:08:24   wonder what they once which or I don't know exactly did a great now minus is if [TS]
