    @gaddy Yeah. Curious to hear Merlin's take on air travel (of course AFTER I fly for first time in seven yrs).

      @gaddy first time hearing Dan’s voice on a podcast in months. So strange compared to how it used to be...

        @gaddy Actually had some hands-on time with an AppleTV in SF. Not much, but enough to get a feel for how it works. Have Mavericks downloading onto my MBAir now - will do the iMac tonight after work…

          @gaddy I doubt they would be allowing us to infer if they didn't have some good idea that a Pro was coming. So i suspect they DO know. And maybe what it is is exactly that - bigger, in every way.

            @gaddy For me the mini is a nonstarter simply because my 50 yr old eyes need stuff to be bigger. Love the mini technologically, but it just doesn't fit what I require.

              @gaddy Not entirely sure what an "iPad Pro" would BE tho. 12"? 256Gb? 4K retina? Air already has best-in-class system-on-chip, wifi, LTE, etc. Drawing a blank…

                @gaddy Guess I will be hitting Apple Northlake next Friday for my Air. Going LTE for the first time. Space Gray, probably 128GB. My iPad 3 already set to add to my sister's family's growing Apple collection…

                  @gaddy iPad mini w/ A7 was a positive surprise, no TouchID on either iPad a disappointment. I am inferring from the "Air" name a future "Pro" version. Considering the number of times 4K video was name checked, surprised no new 4K display…

                    @gaddy When i got my 4s last year I was still thinking of the iPhone as a phone, rather than a pocket computer. Once my head wrapped around that, i used it more and more (and more)…

                      @gaddy I use the iPhone more than I expected, and it has taken over SOME of what I used the iPad for. But I use the iPad 3 a LOT, and it is FAR better for reading/browsing than the phone. So iPad 5 128GB for me (14000 photos eats up a LOT of space!!)

                        @gaddy I think the new IPads will look pretty slick in space grey. Interesting hearing people like Gruber and Marco who rarely use their iPads while others like Siracusa and Dalrymple use them constantly...

                          @gaddy I forget - did you get your 5s yet?

                            @gaddy Sadly I think the field of tech podcasts is pretty well saturated for now…

                              @gaddy Thanks…i have good options for people to cohost, but haven't approached them yet about the project. Obviously requires some outlay to get decent mic, etc…

                                @gaddy heh...might happen next year. Going back in Jamuary... Contemplating trying to do an ATP-style cycling podcast. Have not found one yet that is as good as the better tech podcasts.

                                  @gaddy never would have expected Marco to go longer on The Talk Show than Siracusa!!

                                    @gaddy Look forward to your full review! Maybe not @siracusa level but still...

                                      @gaddy I don't doubt it's big. Obviously Siracusa and Casey are immersed in it. Unusual though for something that big to be completely off my radar.

                                        @gaddy To demonstrate how out of touch I am - I had never even heard of SharePoint before this week's podcast.
