Episode 14 - So Emotional
In which we allow ourselves to be emotionally manipulated by Facebook, if apathy can be considered an emotion.
Episode 13 - I Left My Heart
In which we swiftly discuss the events of the previous week at great length, and with many diverse tangents along the way.
Episode 12: Drunken Bums
In which we start off by drinking too much assorted beers, and it all goes rapidly downhill from there.
Episode 11: Bleeding Hearts
In which we talk of bleeding hearts and retaining data, freedom of information and what Kickstarter really owes to their contributors.
Episode 10, Part 2: Weak Facial Recognition
In which we still have a guest, and continue to talk for even longer again.
Episode 10, Part 1 - It means 'Apple' in Irish
In which we discuss Úll conference with one of its founders, Dermot Daly of Tapadoo. Also, CarPlay,
Episode 9: Sporadic, My Ass
In which we deny rumours of our sporadic output, we get in a flap about app-flipping, we make insulting comments about known homophobes, racists and each other, and we discuss security and encryption in relation to mobile app data. And for the first time on Verbose, there's an after-show section! We basically just forgot to stop the recording and continued to drink beer.
Episode 8: Resolute and Predictable
In which we square our chins, gird our loins, bare our teeth and turn our gaze to the future. It’s not a good look for any of us. We talk a little about some of our crowd-sourced resolutions and predictions for the new year, some of which may prove to be more elusive than others.
Episode 7: Somebody's Watching Me
Between the NSA watching our every move, and us watching our users every move (via analytics), our collective paranoia has never been higher. Also: we discuss how animation principles can be applied to making better user interfaces in our apps. We also briefly mention Anchorman 2, which none of us have actually seen yet.
Episode 6: Circumlocutory
This is a big one. Supersized, if you will. We podcasted the hell out of the podcast this week, I can tell you. It's called Verbose for a reason. Plus: more cursing!.
Episode 5: Enthusiasm
In which several forthcoming things are discussed at great length with much enthusiasm, with a rising fervour growing to a feverish pitch, and ending with lots of giddy excitement.
Episode 4: Dissections
In which the minutiae of announcements made by Apple at their September 10th event regarding the new iPhone 5S and 5C are dissected and examined at great length, and in which iWork is glanced at rather briefly.
Episode 3: Ramifications
In which the ramifications of developer portal downtime has affected all and sundry, the ramifications of AWS's new push notification service being launched, the ramifications of using Reveal.app to fix up misbehaving UIViews, and the ramifications of Apple's upcoming September 10th event.
Episode 2: Jealousy
Now with improved audio and a theme tune! Much talk about WWDC 2013 (only one of us went, and the rest of us are bitter), chat about the new flat design and the sheer volume of updates/bug fixes/complete rewrites that will be required, the anger & rage from users leaving appstore reviews based on running unsupported betas, and what we have left now we have no Google Reader.
Episode 1: Background Noise
First episode! Recorded around a single mic, so we're accompanied by a backdrop of creaking chairs and floorboards.
