The MyMac and TechFan Podcasts will be teaming up at the 2011 Macworld Expo on the Main Stage on Saturday January 26th at noon! Andreas Zeitt from the Screencasts Online site joins us to talk about screencasts and how he does them. Guy erases the hard drive in his MacBook Pro and hopes he can get it all together before leaving for the Macworld Expo.
