MyMac Podcast #512: Future Apple

On July 9, 2014, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

Gaz is off watching cars race that DON’T belong to NASCAR (the HORROR!) but Karl Madden comes on to talk about the future of various Apple products and lots of tangents that Guy went off on (because that’s what he does). You can find Karl’s probably more rational podcast Mac and Forth here.

Gaz is REALLY cheesed off at O2 and Guy finally, maybe, just perhaps has Audio Hijack Pro, Skype, GarageBand, and SoundBoard set up so that it will all work correctly without a single problem! Sheyeah right. Big discussion about Google’s Pixel laptop…err..net device…wait…touch screen…oh whatever it is, the GMen talk about it. Also Mrs. Nemo OBVIOUSLY rules the tech roost in their household. Apparently also Microsoft can’t even get people to steal their products. Good thing I guess since that means no one will drive a car through their storefront windows.

A complaining email gets answered (it’s not always about peace and love darn it) and Gaz can’t remember that 1password (see what I did there?) for work so goes back in Time to find it. We finally get around to a few questions from James about how we do the podcast and what we do it with and Jonny Ive get’s Knighted and Guy gets squat. It’s SO unfair!

The (Mac) App Store
Finally!

On January 9, 2011, in Features, by Tim Robertson


I hate when people remind me that something I predicted came true. Alright, I’m lying. I love it when people tell me something I predicted has come to pass! Like when wrote that the iPod would be a failure once Sony really got behind the whole digital music / MP3 thing! Oh, wait…

Anyway, a few years ago, even before the actual launch of the iTunes App Store, I was spouting on the MyMac Podcast that there should be something similar for Macintosh application. And here were are, January 2011, and we finally have it! The App Store!

Trick or Treat from Apple

On October 18, 2010, in Features, by Guy Serle

Oh Apple, you just LOVE screwing with my head. Just when it seemed like this was going to be year of nothing but iOS and mobile devices (the AppleTV being somewhat of an exception, but since it’s essentially running the iOS it hardly counts), you throw out an invitation for some serious Mac love. So let’s throw out a few predictions of what’s coming on October 20th.

Review – Photo to Movie

On June 30, 2010, in Macintosh, Photography, Review, by Elisa Pacelli


Photo to Movie 4.5
Company: LQ Graphics
Price: $49.95
http://www.lqgraphics.com

Have you ever created a slideshow of your favorite photos, but wished it could have a little more pizazz? Would you like more control of the motion, transitions, even the music in the slideshow? Let me show you Photo to Movie.

Now, before you start thinking, “Ugh, more vacation slides for me to sit through at my friend’s party…,” think about looking at photos in a whole new way. Normally, you would look at one photo after another, possibly including some awkward transitions. Eventually they would all start to blend together in your mind—and you’ve mentally left the party. Start creating your slideshows with Photo to Movie, and you’ll never have to live out this sad scenario again.

Photo to Movie (PTM) produces slideshows that make the viewer feel like part of the action. It’s not quite the same as watching movement in a video, but it can be pretty close.

Transfer LP records to your computer

On February 23, 2010, in Features, by Sam Negri

A friend recently gave me some LP records, some of which were still sealed in shrink wrap. Since they were in excellent condition, I decided to transfer them to my computer using my USB turntable and Audio Hijack Pro, an excellent $32 program from Rogue Amoeba. Here are the steps for transferring records to your computer and then loading them into iTunes.

1. Connect your turntable to a USB port on your computer.

2. Launch Audio Hijack Pro.

3. Click the + sign in the bottom left, and create a new Hijack point.

4. In the right pane, click on the drop down field next to Source Type and select Audio Device.

5.In the Input Device, select USB Audio Codec. Be sure that all other USB audio devices are disconnected.

Nemo’s Ten Point Tutorial #3

Nemo’s Ten Point Tutorial #3

“Record Audio Feedback for MyMac.com Podcast, Using Audio Hijack Pro”


Tim and Chad keep asking for live listener comments during each MyMac.com Podcast. Let’s call their bluff by learning how to create MP3 voice recordings that can be submitted for that purpose.

1. Download Audio Hijack Pro from Rogue Amoeba. Use the demo, or, even better, pay and register your software, because it’s worth every penny.

2. Launch Audio Hijack Pro, and plug in and turn on your USB microphone or Apple iSight into the correct USB or FireWire port, or plan to use the computer’s built-in microphone, if your Mac has one.
