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


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

  kit for Apple TV [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

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

  up and gone [TS]

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

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

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

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

  she had access to one and all that [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  secret [TS]

  there's an additional indicated [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  they wanted everybody to get it you know [TS]

  responsible and encourage people to work and probably have to listen you know [TS]

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

  some kind of legal [TS]

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

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

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

  America's favorite accounting accounts [TS]

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

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

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

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

  like some some number of people just like without every other Apple devices [TS]

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

  about a week before and then the embargo was was clearly he was six six six [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

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

  take you know I'm or wasn't on that list [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

  ya gettin get interviews and surface yeah [TS]

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

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

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

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

  I think it was you know it was clear you know right place right time you know [TS]

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

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

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

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

  upgrade from the the betas of the OS to the gym [TS]

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

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

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

  yeah well you know count against you just go to the website you download the [TS]

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

  iTunes and then you just click Restore [TS]

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

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

  which is one of the poorest out of being a potential [TS]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  the device for the absolute of mistaken identification numbers identical [TS]

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

  they just got out of the box so it's exactly the same as mind sending it yeah [TS]

  alright so [TS]
