Google Glass comes to the iPhone Video Transcript
-What's happening? Bryan Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything inside the world of Apple. Let's get to the show in with 2013 [unk] down. Apple is pushing it until the very end but the new Mac Pros will finally be available to order starting Thursday, December the 19th, with the entry level price for this powerhouse starting at $2,999. There's different configurations starting from 4-Cores, to 6-Cores, to 8, and as high as 12-Core Intel Xeon Processor configurations running at a Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.9 gigahertz with dual GPUs. Now Apple continues to [unk] been assembled in the US and these are amazing-looking machines with a power to boast and that is the last product launch for Apple rounding out 2013. Now Google Glass is coming to iOS. This isn't a joke. It's coming really soon. The Big Googs released their own MyGlass companion app for the iPhone recently. The app allows the set up glass connect to Wi-Fi networks, install apps, and mirror content from glass to the iPhone's display. It was then shortly taken down from the store after it released. Google confirmed it made a mistake and spilled the beans a little too soon but it will be back up shortly. Now the app is free and Google Glass is $1,500 so, do it. Alright, Apple has published their Best of 2013 page on iTunes featuring top movies, music apps, podcast and more. The app of the year was Duolingo that helps you learn a new language with clever mini games, and the game of the year was Ridiculous Fishing. Really? Like, I thought Ninja Fishing was way cooler and Ridiculous basically copied them and others just like Apple copiedâ?¦ Actually, it's really cool. Now, I reached out to Apple because they clearly made an error with their best classic podcast winner so check this out, I submitted a change that they're working on right now. Alright, let's hit the quick bytes. Apple released OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 which improves support for Gmail and OS X Mail, fixes an issue that prevented voice over from speaking sentences that had emojis in them and a few other fixes. Also Big A is enabling iBook gifting on iOS and OS X in time for the holidays. Previously, you could only give someone credit and not gift them a specific book like 50 Shades of Grey. Now, I've never read it but I really don't like the title because I don't think there's that many different types of gray. It's just not true. And remember the Pop Dongle, that popcorn little add on we told you about last week? Well, that stupid thing ended up selling for 315 bucks and bid out my bid of 300. That's ridiculous. Now they put up another one on eBay that's around $100 right now, so yeah, happy bidding. And with the holidays being a time for family, Apple has released this new TV ad called Misunderstood about a teen who is always on his phone constantly. Here just take a look. -Merry Christmas. -But then, what he's been doing the whole time is making a video for his family with his phone and it gets emotional. -Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Let your heart be light. -It's so sad. He's just like me. It's so touching. Okay everybody, that's gonna do it for this week's show. We're going on a break for the holidays and then we'll be at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas so well return in mid-January with more Apple Byte because, come on, we're not leaving you. Now, during that time, I'll be doing some giveaways so you guys can follow me on Twitter @bryantong and you'll have a chance to get some really cool stuff but you know that during that time I'll-- -Have yourself-- -I'll miss you too. -A merry little Christmas -Okay, thanks for watching. -Let your heart-- -Merry Christmas and a -be light -Happy New Year and we'll see you guys next year for another Friday Apple. - From now on your troubles will be out of sight
