This week on the Gadget Lab podcast, the crew talks about big Apple news, little Jawbone news and a few weird ways to touch your iPad.
First off, product reviews editor Mike Calore discusses the major event of this week with staff writer Mike Isaac, Steve Jobs’ resignation as CEO of Apple Inc. We all knew it was coming, but we don’t know what the company will look like as former COO Tim Cook tries to fill Jobs’ shoes.
Next up, Mike and Mike show off a software update for Jawbone’s Jambox, a portable boombox for MP3 players. Essentially, the update allows users to experience “3-D stereo sound” with the mere press of a button. It’s cool enough, but best of all, it’s a free update to a product that’s already been on the market for a year.
Staff writer Christina Bonnington stops by to show off a pair of gloves that will actually work with the iPad (normally, you have to take off your mittens for the screen to register your touch). And if you can’t afford the gloves, contributor Michele Travierso demos another…creative way of manipulating your tablet. Hint: It involves meat.
