Panel: Jason O'Grady and Rob Parker

Topics: In this episode Rob and I discuss the new VeriPhone (a.k.a. the Verizon iPhone) and we analyze its pros and cons and debate the role of its new Personal Hotspot feature in the iPhone ecosphere (and whether AT&T will adopt it.) We also take a first look at iOS 4.3 beta 1 which was just seeded to developers. And we wrap it all up with a healthy serving of "What's on your Mac."

Here's what's on our Macs this week:


  • Waterfield Muzetto bag for MacBook Air ($219 and up) – This vertical, leather man bag is my hands-down favorite bag for the MacBook Air 11. It's beautiful yet professional-looking and Waterfield can't keep them in stock. Order yours with the vertical sleevecase with leather trim (+$47) now and you might get it in February.
  • RapidWeaver ($40, Mac App Store) – Ridiculously easy way to create websites on your Mac. Very Mac-like and includes some nice templates.
  • Angry Birds plus toys – ($9-$29 from ToyWiz) – You got a problem with that?
