Podcast 546: Would you AR in the car?  

Tim Cook can't stop hinting about AR (http://www.macworld.com/article/3168043/government/tim-cook-augmented-reality-is-the-future-and-fake-news-is-ruining-everything.html), and Susie's theory is that he's really talking about Project Titan. Elsewhere, we weigh in on the rumor of a $1,000 iPhone (http://www.macworld.com/article/3126154/hardware/iphone-8-rumors.html), and point and laugh at Planet of the Apps (http://www.macworld.com/article/3169886/streaming-hardware/apples-original-tv-shows-are-almost-ready-for-prime-time.html).

Podcast 543: What's up with WhatsApp  

After a security-focused podcast last week, we turn to...more security stories, like the so-called backdoor in WhatsApp (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157458/security/whatsapp-vulnerability-could-expose-messages-to-prying-eyes-report-claims.html) and how to keep those communications safe (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157562/security/the-backdoor-that-never-was-and-how-to-improve-your-security-with-whatsapp.html). And then Meitu got a lot of flack on the Android side, but Glenn can explain why iOS users shouldn't be as concerned (http://www.macworld.com/article/3160024/security/meitus-photo-effects-app-tracks-users-without-disclosing-enough.html).

Macworld Postcast 542: They’re always listening  

You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in the world with an electronic device right now who isn't concerned about a combination of criminal, troll, and overreaching government trying to crack their security and vacuum up their data. For some practical advice, host Glenn Fleishman is joined by Jonathan Zdziarski, an iPhone forensics expert with extensive experience working with law enforcement, who is also the developer of the file-access-monitoring app, Little Flocker. Glenn and Jonathan start with a brief follow-up on the Consumer Reports' battery testing revision, and then discuss many ways of securing different aspects of your computing and networking setup.

Susie and Glenn reminisce about the very first iPhone (http://www.macworld.com/article/3155480/iphone-ipad/the-iphone-turns-10-apple-ceo-tim-cook-promises-the-best-is-yet-to-come.html), geek out over new iPad rumors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3155753/ios/apple-will-reportedly-launch-3-new-ipad-models-in-spring-2017.html), and revisit the weirdest Consumer Reports review ever (http://www.macworld.com/article/3156350/macs/apple-resolves-the-macbook-pro-battery-life-issues-found-in-consumer-reports-testing.html).

Podcast 540: Happy new year?  

It's 2017, and we're happy to be alive...but. Troubling news abounds with weird MacBook Pro battery tests (http://www.macworld.com/article/3153407/macs/macbook-pro-is-the-first-apple-laptop-to-lack-a-recommendation-from-consumer-reports.html), underwhelming Apple Watch rumors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3154227/wearables/rumor-says-apple-watch-series-3-to-bring-battery-performance-gains-little-else.html), and a lot of concern over whether Apple's losing its touch (https://chuqui.com/2017/01/apples-2016-in-review/).

Podcast 539: AirPods rock, but Siri still struggles  

Susie's AirPods review (http://www.macworld.com/article/3151535/iphone-ipad/airpods-review-they-sound-great-but-siri-holds-them-back.html) is live, and they work like a charm, but unfortunately highlight the divide between first- and third-party apps. Tim Cook says Apple still loves the Mac (http://www.macworld.com/article/3152072/macs/tim-cook-reaffirms-apples-commitment-to-the-mac-in-response-to-growing-doubt.html), but this report on Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-20/how-apple-alienated-mac-loyalists) tells another story. And Apple owns the smartwatch category (https://www.aboveavalon.com/notes/2016/12/15/the-elephant-in-the-smartwatch-room), but is it enough of a category?

A convenience store where you just walk in and take things sounds pretty futuristic and cool—unless you're already sick of being watched the entire time you shop.
