We are recording from Minneapolis, MN at The Jamf Nation User Conference (JNUC) which is a user conference mostly for IT professionals in the enterprise, education, and healthcare industries and we are attending as IT pros. But we do talk about their product Jamf Now that can be used by consumers and small business that manages your iOS devices so you have control what happens to them.

Brian has been an Apple guy for a very long time and has owned most of the iPhone models. Upon urging from his son (Also an Apple guy) he decided to buy the Google Pixel 3. Dave discusses with him to find out what his thoughts are about the phone and would he really switch from an iPhone. The answers are going to be surprising.  Would you switch? We also talk about WhatsApp a messaging app that helps merge the ease of using messaging between Android and imessage. The link is below in the Apps section.

iPhone Xr review - we discuss the review from the Verge the $250 difference between the new iPhone XR and Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone XS. It’s the price difference between the XR’s 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina” LCD screen and the 5.8-inch OLED screen on the XS. Apart from the display, the XR and XS are far more similar than not: they share the same A12 Bionic processors, main cameras with Smart HDR, iOS 12, gesture controls, wireless charging capabilities, and even the forthcoming dual-SIM support.
