- Blind Bargains Qast 73: Dongles And Stuff
The big event happened and there are opinions aplenty about it on the web. But let us add four more to the cacophony as J.J., Joe, Scott and Patrick weigh in on the controversy in an iPhone Plus-sized Discussion-filled episode.
In The Non Apple News:
Discussion Topic: Apple iPhone Event 2016
Like many other podcasts, we had an outline that was discarded fairly quickly. We move back and forth throughout the keynote, however, these notes are a more orderly way of reading up on what happened on September 7th.
iOS, Mac OS and Watch OS:
Watch Series 2:

We asked our Twitter followers what they thought of Apple's big day shortly before we recorded this show. Here's some of the responses...
iPhone neat, Watch innovative, reasons to whine about it all, plentiful.
there are some accessibility concerns by removing the headphone jack. But other than that, decent update.
iPhone 7 is nice, not compelling for 6S owners. Lightning for audio can make charging awkward if you need to use headphones.
Headphone jack going away? Not a big deal to me. Don't use it often enough for it to matter.
this is when Apple falls. predict an uptick in Android device market share
Excited about the 7, camera improvements, faster processor, always opportunity for better AT. A bit ashamed of the blind community making the iphone jack a blind issue.
Instead of investing in a new audio standard, I wonder why they didn't do more work to support aptX? And get off my lawn!
splash! Now the iPhone is toilet proof.
You might be thinking that this was the last of the big tech events for the year. Well, not so much really. Google might have an event, or at least a lot of press releases, in early October to support all that stuff they talked about in May at Google i/o. Rumor is that Microsoft will have an event in late October to spotlight a new line of Surface-based products. And don't count out Amazon. They tend to surprise everyone with product announcements as well. Except they did just quietly release a new 8 inch tablet and some updates to their Fire TV and Fire Stick lines. At any rate, the holiday shopping season is fast approaching. Have a good week everyone!Go to the description page
