Boy we touched a nerve somewhere with TONS of feedback from the listeners! And we LOVE it! Guy makes mistakes and gets called on the carpet for it (don’t worry folks, he’s used to it). More iMac hard drive talk, Godzilla makes a special appearance, and we both agree on AppleCare (if by agree we mean Gaz says no thanks and Guy says yes). Apple tells LodSys to get stuffed and developers cheer (yea)! Lastly, the Apple Stores turn 10 and Apple celebrates with…more iPads?

We’re also running a contest for you creative types to write a bumper or commercial for the MyMac.com Podcast and win an iHub!

Nemo Memo – Syncing’s not always a cinch

On October 20, 2010, in Apple, Features, iPhone, Macbook, Nemo Memo, by John Nemerovski


Guest report from occasional contributor Susan

A month or so ago, I noticed that my iPhone 3G was not updating when I made changes to either my Address Book or iCal on my one year old MacBook, so I made an appointment at my local Tucson Apple Store. Things have changed at the perpetually busy Genius Bar; iPhone techs now meet their clients at the front of the store, which is always very crowded with customers. These days, there are often more people in the Apple Store than in the rest of the stores combined in the upscale shopping plaza where Apple is located. Sad for those others, but I wish Apple would move into larger premises.

The Cost of Apple

On February 9, 2007, in Opinion, by Claus Wolf


I had to attend a conference in Prague earlier this week and while on my way back to my hotel I walked past an Apple Authorized Retail Store near Andel Metro Station. I did some window shopping and was happily converting Czech Koruna to Euro, but just wouldn’t believe my calculations. Prices here were considerably higher than at home.

The next day I asked a Czech friend, whether I was missing something and he confirmed that indeed there had been quite a bit of bad press about Apple’s pricing policy in their country. According to his recollection of the press coverage only Brazilians were paying more for their iPod.

by John “Nemo” and David Weeks, with help from Barbara “Mrs. Nemo”

La Encantada is Tucson’s first upscale shopping complex, featuring usual-suspects franchise and regional retailers. At midnight last Friday night, MacDevotees were camping out under cover from a rare all-night rain storm, Arizona style. When our Apple store opened at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, 599 people were in a line snaking past A-J’s, the ultra-foodie grocery emporium fifty yards in the distance.

When Weeks, Nemo, and Barbara arrived an hour later, our wait was a only few minutes to enter and become eligible to receive opening day t-shirts. By noon, people could stroll right in, but the 1,000 shirts were gone. That’s a lot of people for a smallish storefront business in two hours. A good time was had by all, believe me!

Our Tucson Mac Users Group had a strong presence all morning, led by hard-working president Ridge Prevost.
