Talkcast tonight, 10pm ET: iOS 7 vertigo caused by enormous iPhone sales?


It's Sunday, and it's time for the TUAW talkcast! If you're feeling slightly wobbly and a trifle nauseated, we understand. Although it's possible that your vertigo is related to iOS 7's new parallax effect and zooming visuals, that's affecting relatively few people. (If you're affected, be sure to flip the Reduce Motion switch under Settings, General, Accessibility.)

Nobody expects the talkcast errors! We switched to Google Hangouts for this week's show due to problems with the call. See below.

No, more likely that the sour taste in your mouth is related to the frantic Wall Street rationalizations and revisionist redactions as the equity analysts covering Apple's business try to figure out how they underestimated iPhone 5c/5s launch sales predictions so drastically. Despite the fact that Apple hasn't changed its sales recognition rules since last year's iPhone 5 launch, somehow nine million phones sold this time around has to be less impressive than you'd think. Because math! Well, at least the stock's holding up. What's that? Oh.

We'll discuss these items of community interest, plus more news, tips and tricks -- and a discount for TUAW readers on the MacTech conference. Join us at 10pm ET, won't you?

Reminder on new-style talkcasting: With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're using a new system to record the show. This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.

You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience. Just click the phone icon to join the audio once you're in.

Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 775-996-3562 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.

While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show will appear in this very post at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.

Your patience and forbearance with our new tech is appreciated in advance. For the time being, the podcast feed of the show will continue to originate from Talkshoe and should be there within 24-36 hours. See you tonight!
