MacVoices #13178: A TidBITS MacJury Discusses The iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

After a long, hard day of journalistic effort, we corralled part of the TidBITS brain trust to analyze Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. The topics ranged from the art-deco colors of the 5c to the A7 chip that powers the 5s. Along the way, the panel had strong opinions about slo-mo video, the improvements to the camera in the 5s, the security and convenience aspects of the new Touch ID scanner, and more. You won’t find a panel of experts with better commentary or more laughs than this MacJury of Josh Centers, Michael E. Cohen, Adam Engst, Tonya Engst, Joe Kissell and host Chuck Joiner.

Can't wait for the iphone 5R (retina scan). They will get everyone holding their phones up in front of their faces to unlock them. It will bring in plenty of revenue to the police in fines for people driving with their phones switched on...

I don't think it should be pronounced "iphone five Ess" Shouldn't it just be "iphone fives"?

@AndrewLechte But what that would refer to multiple iPhone 5 devices, not multiple iPhone 5s devices.
