MacVoices #14186: The MacJury On What We Want and What We Need in the iPhone 6

With all the buzz, The MacJury convened to discuss what is most wanted and most needed in the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone. No rumors here, just a serious examination of what we can realistically expect to see, and what is most important. Screen size, battery life, weight, materials and even the need for a case are all on the docket for discussion by the panel of Kelly Guimont, Julio Ojeda-Zapata,  Jim Tanous and host Chuck Joiner.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the brand new  PDFpen Scan+, the best way to scan and create PDFs on your iDevice,  PDFpen 6  and PDFpenPro 6,  PDFpen for iPad,  PDFpen for iPhone,  as well as TextExpander for Mac, TextExpander touch  and DiscLabel.

Kelly Guimont  is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly is one of the regular hosts of the  TUAW Talkcast, appearing live from her House of Crackpot theories, is the latest addition to the  Angry Mac Bastards, is an occasional guest on the  International Mac Podcast, and yet still has more to say which she saves for  Twitter  

Julio Ojeda-Zapata  has been on the front lines of the Internet and technology revolutions as a columnist, editor and award-winning reporter for more than a decade. He covers  consumer tech, a MediaNews Group and Digital First Media property, and its St. Paul Pioneer Press dead-tree counterpart. Julio  reports on a wide range of tech topics, post daily to his  Your Tech Weblog, and slap together tech videos from time to time (when I’m not in one). He is  the author of  iPad Means Business  and  Twitter Means Business, and is  active on  Twitter,  Google+  and  Facebook, among other networks.  

Jim M. Tanous  runs  TekRevue, a general interest technology site covering the most important stories each day from the world of Mac, Windows, Mobile, and Gaming, along with frequent tips and tutorials on how to get the most out of your technology. He also stops by  The Mac Observer  each week to drop off a tip or two from the  Mac Geek Gab  podcast.  Prior to starting TekRevue, Jim wrote for The Mac Observer, fixed computers for Apple, installed medical records software for McKesson, and assisted attorneys at a New York law firm.  Born in Buffalo, NY, Jim now lives in Erie, PA with his wife and young son, and spends most of his day trying to keep the family’s three cats off of his desk.  You can contact Jim via  Twitter,  Facebook,  Google+, or  email.
