Qualcomm, Google Fi for iPhone, Passcode breaking and more on the AppleInsider Podcast

in General Discussion
This week on the AppleInsider Podcast, Victor and William talk about getting your iPhone battery replaced sooner rather than later, Qualcomm, Google Fi, the iPad smart connector, and passcode breaking.

Fi on iPhone!

AppleInsider editor Victor Marks and writer William Gallagher discuss:

  • First of all, change your iPhone battery if it's failing. The $29 dollar price is going to go up December 31.
  • Qualcomm's CEO Steve Mollenkoph speaks on Jim Cramer's show, saying that the case is nearly closed. We talk about why he might be motivated to speak during an open case.
  • Google changes "Project Fi" into "Google Fi", signaling that it's no longer a limited project, and they release an iOS app for iPhone (beta) support. It's got an interesting pricing model, works very well internationally, and has some finer details worth talking about
  • DriveSavers, the data recovery people, claim to be able to unlock passcode-locked devices with 100% success.
  • By moving the position of the Smart Connector on the new iPads, Apple has destroyed the potential of the connector.
