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.

The Rise of Slab-Serif

Spring fashion is all around us, and this podcast is no exception! The Jared White Show and JaredWhite.com have a fresh, funky new design for spring, and it all started…because of an Apple Watch band. Also a throwback to the internet of 1996, depressed superheroes, and gender-swapping cosplay. Never a dull moment!

Putin’ on the Censorship

Ol’ Vladimir is up to his tricks again over in Mother Russia, but that won’t stop us from talking about the open web and geek culture—from Avengers: Endgame to Veronica Mars to the website typography choices of candidates running for President of these United States. I also play jungle music and read toots. You just can’t get this kind of content anywhere else, folks.

The Year of the Personal Cloud

In this episode, Jared gives a detailed rundown of all of the big commercial internet services he’s replaced with open source, self-hosted software that he controls himself. Why would anyone want to do this? Three words: privacy, security, and network health. Just as biologists know that an ecosystem with a large amount of organism diversity is more resilient to environmental pressures, the internet is more resilient to negative forces when software and content is distributed and spread across the network (instead of consolidated under the thumb of a few big corporations or governments). Save the open web by switching to your own “personal cloud.”
