- Blind Bargains Qast 114: A 4K Face ID Adventure
Big news requires a big discussion group. That's why we asked Jamie Pauls and Scott Davert to return to the BBQ to talk all things Apple. X, 8, TVs and other acronyms will be mentioned. Also, you won't believe which Qast host defends one particular Apple device or why.

Discussion Topic: Apple iPhone Event 2017
Here is just some of the news and links we covered during our Apple conversation.
We asked for reactions on the news of the week and boy did you deliver. Here's just a sampling of the tweets we received:
GStilson: The part that is being overlooked right now is what they did with the watch. That could potentially be a wearable industry changer.
ed_edwardson: Apple must have used up their supply of courage last year. Bringing back the headphone jack would have been truly courageous.
cristoferdeo: I'm inclined to buy the $800 256 GB iPhone model and sell my SE to mitigate my out of pocket cost.
douglas2005: I wish Afple had addressed improving Siri. Not sold yet, but leaning to iPhone 8 or maybe Android.
daiverd: I wonder if it will be possible to replace my phone with the new watch completely. I miss tiny phones
jaybird110127: I personally don't see any reason for a blind person to buy the iPhone X. Save $300.
LeftBollocks: by its very nature apple has proven that changing tec will spike abuse for a while. Then people wonder how they did with out
slannon97: They didn't introduce any new Macs or a new iPhone SE. I'll wait until next year.
alyssa6595: I'm looking forward to the new watch. To me, that was the highlight, along with the tribute to Steve Jobs
maldonado0767: I'm a proponent of change and glad Apple has decided to upgrade to modern times by bringing wireless charging.
turtlecatpurrz: I'm thrilled they are still selling the SE and 6S. It gives me hope that I can get another year out of my 6S
missanonymous94: I wonder what the solution is for people who can't open or control their eyes, or have no eyes. I have nostagnus and can't look directly.
The big tech events show no sign of stopping with Google and Microsoft both set to display their holiday lines in October. And there wasn't any sign of the Home Pod. So it isn't unrealistic to think we'll have another Apple event since it isn't like they have to book their Steve Jobs Theater in advance. Next week, however, we'll catch up on news and talk iOS11's big rollout with Jamie and Scott.Go to the description page
