Amsys:What features would you like to see incorporated into 10.9?
Charles Edge: Siri and an API so I can integrate Siri with my own apps?
Amsys: What’s your favourite use of a Mac or Apple product in a film?
Charles Edge: The PowerBook Ving Rhames used in a Mission Impossible. Mostly because the Apple was facing the wrong direction…
Amsys: As a consultant are you finding hosted cloud solutions a threat to the sort of services you supply?
Charles Edge: Absolutely not. I find they’re more stable and my customers are happier than many of the services that run in OS X Server. It’s different but in technology we’re used to reacting to different products, given something different seems to come along every day!
Amsys:What do you think the new Ashton Kutcher movie ‘JOBS’ will do for the Apple brand, if anything?
Charles Edge: No clue. That’s above my pay grade!!!
Amsys: So far, what has been your favourite Apple product and why?
Charles Edge: The MacBook Air. Reason, I travel a lot and carrying two of them is still less than the ThinkPad I used to carry!
Amsys: You are stranded on a desert island (with electricity and 3G) and can take just ONE Apple product with you. What would it be and why?
Charles Edge: iPhone. Reason is that I can call and get someone to come get me off that island, use the WordPress app to write a blog post about it while I’m there, reply to some email, check in on Foursquare and then play a little Angry Birds while I’m waiting for the rescue!
