First off, if this post should be moved to a podcast-specific forum, please do so. I just didn't see one, so this seemed to be where I should post.
Recently the number of errors by the MW staff on podcasts seems to be on the rise, and for things that are very easily disproven. I'll cite two examples:
1. Recently when discussing the upcoming navigation app by Apple in iOS 6, there was a statement that other navigation apps do not provide notification of turns that occur immediately following other turns. This is wrong: Navigon, Copilot, and the excellent (and free) Waze ALL have this feature, and have for some time. Others do too, so I'm not sure how this fact was missed.
2. Another comment in a different recent podcast stated that iOS devices carry on a number of operations while sleeping, including Mail app updates... Yes, they can do this, but I came way with the impression that he meant this was always the case, and of course, it's not. Mail and other programs can be set to only update manually, thus saving battery life.
Overall, it's still a great podcast, but it just seems to me that some of the information presented is less well researched than before.
One final comment: this wasn't an error per se, but to leave Grazing out of the list of alternative iOS browsers was a crime! To me, it is by far the most versatile and cleanest browser available.
