MBW 857: Appleback

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…


What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

I have had Apple HomePods connected to my Apple TV for a couple of years and never had any of the issues Jason was talking about.

I work in the office and at home, about 25%/75% at the moment, but probably going back the other way round shortly, I hope.

I have often thought about a NUC or a Mac mini, instead of a laptop. I use a 44" UHD display at home and work, I use the laptop screen for displaying Teams, if I use it at all, everything else is in Windows on the screen. I have a docking station at both ends. Simply putting the NUC/Mini in my bag would be less hassle and less fragile (no screen to break) and it is a lot cheaper for the company, but for the odd time I go to a meeting or travel to another site (we have 4), I may need the laptop.

I have a pair of the large original HomePods as a stereo pair on my ATV - and Sony 4K TV - works great - no weirdness unless my network hiccups! oh, I also have a stereo pair of HomePod mini’s in my home office that work great

New HomePods come today. I’m planning on using them on our bedside tables for audio books, late night music, and sleep sounds (we’re replacing a pair of HomePod minis). I’ll let you know how they work.
