Summary: A weekly podcast from some creative minds on App.net where we discuss Apple, technology, news and other things that we find interesting.
The Social Converse 4: That Is Why I Enjoyed The Movie Twitter has added Instagram-like filters. Does anyone care? Google Maps for iOS is out. What does this mean for Apple and why are the gestures so confusing?! Is Google censoring porn? Google is dropping Exchange ActiveSync support for Gmail next month. Is this a big deal? How will this affect iOS users? Is Google trying to screw Microsoft? In a move everyone saw coming, Instagram is giving user data to Facebook. What does it mean for the users?
