Back by popular demand on this week’s GeekWire radio show: Andru Edwards of GearLive, one of our favorite gadget experts, who brings his brand new iPad Air to the studio to talk about the new Apple tablet.
Listen to the show via this MP3 file or the audio player below.
Along the way, Andru convinces my colleague John Cook to finally make the upgrade to iOS 7 on his iPhone. (That’s John with Andru in the photo, with his phone in the process of updating. Yes, it was successful, although honestly I was a little concerned for John given that he didn’t back it up first.)
In our weekly news roundup, we delve into the political dustup over Comcast’s contributions to Seattle mayoral candidate Ed Murray, which Mayor Mike McGinn has been seeking to turn into a larger issue in the final days of the campaign. And we talk about the upcoming launch of the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, with Andru’s sharing his recommendations.
And finally, we talk about Microsoft’s Surface 2, including an update on my family’s year-long experiment with the original Surface RT.
