And then Meitu got a lot of flack on the Android side, but Glenn can explain why iOS users shouldn't be as concerned (http://www.macworld.com/article/3160024/security/meitus-photo-effects-app-tracks-users-without-disclosing-enough.html).

Episode 542: They’re always listening
01:04:28
You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in the world with an electronic device right now who isn't concerned about a combination of criminal, troll, and overreaching government trying to crack their security and vacuum up their data.

01:12:35
Susie's AirPods review (http://www.macworld.com/article/3151535/iphone-ipad/airpods-review-they-sound-great-but-siri-holds-them-back.html) is live, and they work like a charm, but unfortunately highlight the divide between first- and third-party apps. Tim Cook says Apple still loves the Mac (http://www.macworld.com/article/3152072/macs/tim-cook-reaffirms-apples-commitment-to-the-mac-in-response-to-growing-doubt.html), but this report on Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-20/how-apple-alienated-mac-loyalists) tells another story. And Apple owns the smartwatch category (https://www.aboveavalon.com/notes/2016/12/15/the-elephant-in-the-smartwatch-room), but is it enough of a category?

Host Glenn Fleishman and Macworld's associate managing editor Leah Yamshon discuss how much virtual ink has been spilled for how long, and yet nobody outside Apple still knows what's coming.

Yes, 500 years ago—we mean 11 years ago, this podcast started humbly as an experiment by a Macworld intern turned staffer recorded partly in a conference room with a nerdy guest named…Glenn Fleishman calling in remotely. In this episode, after a welcome from one-time staffer Cyrus Farivar, Susie and Glenn talk with columnist and former editor Jason Snell about Apple's introduction of the iPhone SE and Jason's hands-on time with it. We also discuss the latest in the FBI/Apple case, the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and the iMessage security flaw patched this week.

El Capitan is ready for business in a way that we can't remember many or any other OS X releases being. We recommend upgrading for all Yosemite users. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have significant hardware changes that translate into a great new set of experiences. 3D Touch is a winner, in Jason's estimation, while 4K video, faster Touch ID, and overall performance all add up to make both models seem very different from their predecessors, even as they look almost identical.
