MacVoices #20275: MacVoices Live! - Apple's AirPods Max Announcement (1)

published 9 months ago by Chuck Joiner

Only hours after the  press release announcing the AirPods Max, a MacVoices Live! panel discussed the newest Apple product by trying to decide who the target market is, whether the price reflects the technology or something else, and why there are no Apple logos on the ear cups. Find out who was supportive and who was incensed in the panel of Oliver Breidenbach, Frank Petrie, Kelly Guimont, Mark Fuccio, Guy Serle, and Brittany Smith.

Show Notes: Guests: Oliver Breidenbach is the CEO of Boinx Software. Follow him on Twitter.  Frank Petrie is an author and contributor to ScreenCastsOnline Magazine. Follow him on Twitter and check out his web site, ympnow.com. Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is the host of the Daily Observations Podcast, is co-host of The Aftershow, and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog. Mark Fuccio is actively involved in high tech startup companies, both as a principle at piqsure.com, or as a marketing advisor through his consulting practice Tactics Sells High Tech, Inc. Mark was a proud investor in Microsoft from the mid-1990's selling in mid 2000, and hopes one day that MSFT will be again an attractive investment. You can contact Mark through Twitter on LinkedIn. Guy Serle, best known for being one of the co-hosts of the MyMac Podcast, sincerely apologizes for anything he has done or caused to have happened while in possession of dangerous podcasting equipment. He should know better but being a blonde from Florida means he's probably incapable of understanding the damage he has wrought. Guy is also the author of the novel, The Maltese Cube. You can follow his exploits on Twitter, catch him on Mac to the Future on Facebook, and find everything at VertShark.com. Brittany Smith is a cognitive neuroscientist who provides a variety of consulting services through her business, Devise and Conquer that includes ADD/ADHD coaching, technology coaching, productivity consulting, and more. She is a self-designated “well-rounded geek”, and holds a M.S. degree in Cognitive Neuroscience. She can be found on Twitter as @addliberator.
