A quick solo episode, where I give some thoughts on E3 2018, the big three conferences, a few games, and what I was surprised to not see as well.
It’s the week of WWDC, a time of year where Apple announce their plans for new software updates across their products.
And because of this, it’s time for a special episode!
iOS 12, macOS Mojave, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 were all announced on Monday.
I talk to returning guests about what they were pleased to see, and also what we’d like to see in the coming months from Apple.

This week I’m joined by Tim Chaten, host of iPadPros and Club Nintendo.
He’s a guest who uses more than one iPad thought his day, which made us think about how iOS 12 could cater for this in a much more, powerful way.
We then finish the episode with a great chat about the Nintendo Switch, and what we’d like to see for its second year.
Taking a break from the main topic of iPad this week, with a focus on the other passion: Games.
And who better than Chris Scullion.
A Games Journalist who, from 2006, went from Official Nintendo Magazine, to CVG, to his own site, ‘Tired Old Hack’.
He’s in the midsts of finishing his ‘Secret Project’, while also going full speed ahead on his site and podcast series.
This week I’m joined by Steven Aquino, a freelance tech journalist, who specialises in the accessibility features of Apple.
A very fun episode, where we talked of our history with the iPad, ideas for the keyboard, and where the iPad line could go, from accessibility to a certain UI change.
Slightly different this week where I speak to two iOS developers, Dave Nott and Dave Wood, who also host a great podcast called ‘Waiting for Review‘.
We keep to the main topic of iPad, but we also go into what they’d like to see at WWDC, our thoughts on iOS as a whole, the iPhone and the Mac, alongside some thoughts for the Apple Watch and third-party watch faces.
Now that Apple’s Education Event has finished, I give my thoughts to the few announcements made, alongside what could be coming up until WWDC.
As a bonus, I briefly talk about a game I’ve finally bought for the Switch.
- Apple Event Video.
- New iPad 9.7 Page.
- Space Grey Keyboard. For £149.
- Final Zone Vol. 1 on the iBooks Store.
A couple of updates and stories since the last episode to share.
From the Nintendo Direct, to running out of mobile data, to the plan for the next few episodes, alongside an (unwelcome) cameo from Siri.
- Tired Old Hack Podcast 23: Nintendo Direct & Smash Bros Analysis.
- Apple’s ‘Education’ Event on the 27th March.
- WWDC 2018 on June 4th.
- Appearing on Tim Chaten’s ‘iPad Pros’ podcast.
- My tweet on a Siri Fail.
A break in the usual programming of The Outpost Show this week.
On the 3rd March, it marked a year since the Nintendo Switch launched.
I talk to one of the Editors of Miketendo64, Jack Longman on its first year of release.
We speak about our history with Nintendo, the games we’d like to see ported over to the Switch, and how they seem to make bizarre missteps every so often, along with what we’d like to see in its Online Service later this year.
A solo episode where I give some opinions on the recent news of iOS 12 and 13 having an easier time of gaining more refined features, how I’ve found having an iPhone 8 Plus after six months, and brief thoughts on the iPad and the keyboard.
To finish off, I give some shoutouts to some podcasts I’ve been listening to on the daily train commute.
