The Impromptu is a weekly podcast, hosted by Michael Norton and Alex Knight. It’s a multi-faceted show discussing how technology, design, and economics converge on topics that matter most to us. We examine the creative process and how the decisions we make, shape our perceptions and lives.
We examine the Google Pixel 4 flagship Android phone, and its rather underwhelming performance. Also, the 16" MacBook Pro is real, AirPods Pro, and how Google Stadia could be a game changer.
Exciting new Microsoft Surface hardware has been revealed, only some of it won't be shipping until next year. We also talk about the perils of pro audio/video software on new macOS releases, new AirPods, new MacBook Pros, and new California "deep fake" laws.
Why are people never happy? This week we look at the release of iOS 13.1.2 as an atypical release, just days after 13.1.1. Fixing bugs and releasing often shows that software is being maintained. Isn't it a good thing? We end with a contemplative subject on how recent overblown "Netflix is doomed" sentiment really is.
