Whatever The Hell This Is

Greetings, fellow citizens of the internet refuge from the global pandemic! How are you surviving Crisis? I am, to echo the words of Morpheus, STILL HERE! In this episode I bring you up to speed on what I’ve been up to…some fun things, some rewarding things, and one terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing I’ve been battling with for a couple of months now (predating the coronavirus lockdown!).

iPadOS 13.4, Photoshop for iPad, Remote Work, and Staying Home

What a strange and frightening time to be alive! But I’m here and I’m back to try to lighten the mood a bit with talk of the brand-new cursor and trackpad support for iPad in iPadOS 13.4, as well as speculation on how the sudden transition to remote work might change the business landscape for good as we look ahead. I also convey my impressions using Photoshop for iPad now that the new cursor-based input brings the user experience closer to the Mac and even surpasses it in many ways.

A Conversation with Nathan Kontny on Becoming a YouTuber, Privacy in Tech, Startup Culture, and Being a Dad

Kicking off our Creator Series, Nathan joins Jared to talk about his journey from software developer to YouTube content creator, the challenges and rewards of presenting your authentic self, ups and downs in entrepreneurship, what’s the deal with privacy and the tech industry, centralized vs. decentralized social media, diversity in startup culture, and introducing children to an engineer’s mindset. There’s also something about tampons in there…it makes sense in context, I swear!

The State of Social Media in 2020

I haven’t talked much about the general state of social media on the show in a while, so it’s high time we revisit this topic! Here are my latest thoughts on all the top contenders large and small—what they’re getting right, or wrong, and what is coming down the pike. You might be surprised where my head is at these days…

OK Gruber

John Gruber’s feeling grumpy on the 10th anniversary of the iPad, but we’re here to revel in geek iPad fandom and—despite any lingering limitations—reflect on the importance and success of the iPad product category and muse on where the iPadOS software can go from here. Past, present, and future…all coming together here in this latest episode of The Jared White Show.

There’s a Write Way to Do Things

This week’s special topic is all about…writing tools! Which apps I use to write and for organizing research, the environment and context in which I write, and what I like to do for inspiration to become a better writer. If you’re looking to shake things up this year and adopt new workflows or technology to jumpstart your writing career, this is the show for you.

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!

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. :)
