Buff Mage and the Reply Controls

In today’s episode, Jared dives into the swirl of consternation over what Twitter’s new reply controls might mean for the platform, product anniversaries of note in Apple history, all the wacky new cyberpunk and brutalist designs of phones, pianos, trucks, websites, etc., and tons of TV fandom followup. And we’re just getting started!

The Dawn of a Decade and a Fresh New Format

Hello and welcome to 2020! We’re kickin’ into high gear on The Jared White show this year with a fresh new format where I answer listener questions each week, as well as a bonus episode exclusively for Patreon members. I go into all these changes on today’s show, plus a slew of topics and commentary around geek fandom, content creation, OS upgrades, YouTube meltdowns, and more.

Twitter is Like a Decentralized Twitter

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey dropped a bombshell announcement yesterday about the decentralized, open-protocol-based future of Twitter, and The Jared White Show is here to talk about what it means for the “fediverse” (the existing federated social networking world of Mastodon, etc.), why Twitter is even doing this, how Dorsey has never been a clone of Zuckerberg, and much more. This just might be one of the most important episodes of the show to date!

BONUS TECH TALK: iPad Pro Photo/Video Workflow & Cloud Storage

Welcome to this very special BONUS episode of The Jared White Show where we talk about the most exciting topic in all of computing: file storage! But seriously, this episode is a deep dive into my very specific photography and videography workflows, and especially how I get it all done on my iPad Pro with Lightroom CC and LumaFusion. In addition, I cover the pros and cons of iCloud Drive, Nextcloud, and Dropbox, and make some recommendations for what you might want to choose for your cloud storage needs.

Our Long Apple Laptop Keyboard Nightmare is Over

The collective Apple pro laptop userbase can finally breath a huge sigh of relief, as the brand-new MacBook Pro 16” with Magic Keyboard is HERE!!! (Now when’s that keyboard coming to the rest of the lineup??!!) Also in the episode: Disney+ has landed (much to delight of children everywhere and, yes, many adults too), as well as Apple TV+, and Jared has to eat some crow because The Morning Show is FANTASTIC. All this and more…right here on The Jared White Show.

Facebook 2020

Hindsight is 2020, but that won’t stop us from talking about what kind of company and what kind of social network Facebook will be as we head into 2020 and the height of the U.S. political season. Will regulation force Facebook, Twitter, and other massive networks to interoperate with newer, smaller networks? Will the values of free expression online prevail? Will the specter of Chinese censorship change the debate on what we expect from social networks here in America? All in a day’s conversation here at The Jared White Show.

Mental Health and the Creative Freelancer

A few years ago I realized I was suffering from acute depression. It was affecting my work and my quality of life. Today, I am doing much better, but I must remain vigilant not to slide back into old patterns and negative mindsets. As a creative freelancer, there are certain pitfalls which can have an adverse effect on my mental health, and that’s what I talk about in today’s episode. NOTE: you don’t have to be a freelancer to appreciate today’s conversation! There’s a little something here for everybody. :)

iPad Roadtrippin’ + Tumblr Has Gone Automattic

Jared has returned from his summer excursion into the wilderness of Central Oregon, and he’s ready to talk Tumblr. Automattic, the folks behind WordPress.com, have purchased the long-suffering Web 2.0 stalwart and promise to usher in a new microblogging renaissance. That, plus a bonus topic on how to track daily progress in popular journaling app Day One. Enjoy the show!

Get SMART

The latest Q3 2019 earnings results are in from Apple, and—depending on who you talk to—they’re either surprisingly stellar or dreadfully terrible. Welcome to the world of news media spin. Also, a new ruling from the EU makes website operators responsible for what Facebook does with user data, a U.S. Senate bill called the SMART Act would ban dark UX patterns from popular social apps, and so much more.

Subverting Notions of the Afterlife

Jared’s feeling under the weather, but The Show Must Go On! In this episode, he talks about Apple funding exclusive podcast content, the demise of Google’s secret Chinese search engine, whether iPadOS’s “desktop class” Safari ushers in a new app-less era, and, of course, this week’s BIGGEST NEWS STORY: Snoppy goes to outer space. That, and oh so much more…

There Goes Jony

It’s the end of an era as famed head of industrial design at Apple, Jony Ive, is leaving the company. In this episode I break down two Apple products I believe embody Jony’s formidable design leadership and which truly set the stage for both Apple’s preset and future: iOS 7 and iPad Pro. I also get to touch on a couple of odd Apple-related news items as well as the new streaming service from WarnerMedia to rival Netflix.

Rub a Dub Dub

It’s that time of year again, when the wizards of Cupertino descend upon San Jose, CA with their magic potions, and spellbind us all with their latest and greatest. Of personal interest is the laser-focused and very welcome attention Apple paid to the unique role of the iPad and its place in the broader world of computerdom, leading to the the rip-roaring announcement of iPadOS. Let’s dive right in.
