By Kinda, we mean he bought a cheap Android tablet and seems to hate it. Let’s hear it for positive reinforcement and how a good experience leads you to buy tech items again! YAY! Gaz makes it back from Turkey alive, but the worst part seems to be getting home. Also his daughters are hell on their iPhones. The little cloner that couldn’t Psystar is finally dead and the GMen continue their discussion over how to make an iPad you main portable device. This week it’s external storage options.

Pioneer Elite N-30 Front View

Pioneer Elite N-30 Networked Audio Player
Company: Pioneer Electronics
Price: $499.00 USD

Pioneer, a venerable name in home audio, has come up with a pair of interesting devices to better integrate the audio part of the internet and your own digital music library into your home audio system, the N-30 and N-50 Networked Audio Players. The Networked Audio Players are part of Pioneer’s Elite product line, noted for their excellent construction and superb audio quality. Pioneer foolishly loaned me an N-30 to evaluate. I say foolishly only because I seem to attract products for review that have fundamental flaws that cause me to write far too many negative reviews. Sadly, this is one of them.

Tim and David have a heated discussion on the merit and fairness of comparing the Kindle Fire to the iPad in reviews. What the tech industry needs to do to get competitive and make better products is also discussed. Plus, David asks the question: with Modern Warfare 3, has the Xbox 360 reached it’s zenith? And Tim goes through a major change with his entertainment system. And if all that is not enough, some big changes are discussed about the MyMac Podcasting Network, and what is the Stoplight Network?

The Invasion of the GMen
Pocket Sized Podcast #38

It’s a week of MyMac.com Podcast tomfoolery as many of the shows switch hosts! The Pocket-Sized Podcast was fortunate enough (though that should be taken with a grain of salt) to get Gaz and Guy, the GMen from the MyMac.com Podcast to cover his duties. For some reason, Guy talked about Sharepoint a Microsoft program, while Gaz being more sensible (another grain of salt is required here) talked about his new iPhone 4S. Samsung’s Dutch patent trolling got a bit of a talking to and just why the EU thinks that carrying two cables for iOS devices is better than one baffles them both. Guy knows why most Android devices will never be updated and both GMen are a little perplexed by the change in the name of the Macworld Expo to iWorld.

Tim and David delve into Amazon’s Android App store and disagree, then a short rant on the TSA performing pat downs on children. Also, Cisco has killed off the Flip, and Tim and David spend just a few moments on ideas that no one had at Cisco to rescue the produce, apparently. Finally, Nintendo is rumored to be releasing a new home console system very soon, so the topic turns to the Wii and what Nintendo should have in the next system.

is back from being ill but it doesn’t seem to make things easier for Gaz. It starts off a little rough (but Guy doesn’t edit it out because it’s funny) and gets crazy from there. Gaz thinks he may still need an AppleTV and Guy builds a RAID 1 for his iTunes content. Are Netbooks getting killed by the iPad or are they victims of their own crappiness? Android tablets are on the way (eventually), but should Apple be concerned? Would you be interested in a smartphone app that helps you through a museum, art gallery, or other attractions? The Eiffel Tower rents out iPads to do just that. Microsoft is finally putting out Windows Phone 7, some three years after the iPhone.

Tim’s new podcast is ALSO now out. If you liked OWCRadio, you’ll love TechFan and you’ll find it in the MyMac iTunes feed.

Records in the age of MP3

On June 29, 2010, in Opinion, by Shay Fulton

I consider myself fairly tech-savvy. I own the latest Android Smartphone, a literal cornucopia of iPods, several digital cameras, photo printers, and I pride myself on my Pentagon-level WIFI security settings. I was designing HTML and Perl code around the same age I learned the value of deodorant. In other words, I’m fairly certain I could ace the Certified Techno Nerd test, if there was one. That might be why so many of my friends were shocked when I told them that my wife bought me a brand new Sony turntable for my thirtieth birthday (if you are not sure what a turntable even is, Google it now before reading on). Aside from the initial shock that my birthday gift was actually analog for the first time this century, I was first comforted to see that the machine had a USB port – a bridge to the digital age we now live in, and possibly the only recognizable part of the machine for those twenty-five or younger
