MacNotables #905: Ted Landau on Apple’s New Airport, Reading eBooks and Downgrading Your iPhone

Ted Landau

Ted Landau has been spending plenty of time with his iPhone, making it do things Apple would prefer he didn’t, reading eBooks and more. Ted talks about the new Amazon Kindle app for the iPhone and why the experience has been surprisingly positive and why you might want or need to downgrade your iPhone apps. Ted also gives us a first look at the latest iteration of Apple’s Airport Extreme, the ease of set-up and some of the issues that you may run into when trying to access some of its new features.

UPDATE: This message thread on Apple’s site addresses the WDS issue Ted discussed.
