MacVoices #17213: Ted Landau Talks iPhone X, TiVo Woes, and Amazon Echo Successes

MacNotable Ted Landau has had time to get up and running with his iPhone X, and has some stories to tell about the ways you can complete your upgrade, even if you are confused by the options. Overall, the transition went smooth, but Ted can’t say the same for the new upgrade to TiVO and its new voice-control remote; he tells us what’s right and what’s wrong, and then gives us his latest assessment of Amazon’s Echo. (Hint: He really likes it.)
