Is everyone sick of all the pre-Macworld Expo talk? OK, I have to admit that I’m not, but we decided it was time to talk about something else. And who better to go to that something else than Guy’s brother Larry Grinnell! He knows ALL the GMen’s buzzwords and phases and as it turns out is actually smarter than Guy (like that’s some big accomplishment).

Guy needs some solutions to arranging his laptop for his son going to college, Gaz gets his new iPad AND an Airport Express all in one week, and they have a lively discussion about Cloud file sharing/storage solutions. Oh, and apparently some guy in China makes tea from Panda Poop.

It’s the Chiroptophobia Show

You’ll have to listen to find out what Chiroptophobia is, but the why they called the show that is still a mystery. Maybe they have a fear of naming things (no that would be Nomatophobia).The big 400th Podcast is coming up and Gaz and Guy can’t WAIT to give you people stuff for being so wonderful about listening to the show! However they seem to be able to make you wait until the 400th podcast actually happens. So far they have three companies willing to pony up some great prizes including BusyCal from BusyMac Software, the Co-Pilot iOS app from ALK Technologies , and MacKeeper 2012 from ZeoBIT Software. Then they go over a big list (but not a conclusive list) of the software they like on their Macs and why.

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!

Skype seriously disliked us tonight with Volume issues and hisses. But we soldered on and had a great time talking about all kinds of stuff and LOT’S of great feedback from out terrific listeners! We got our 50th FaceBook Liker (is that even a word?), talked about DropBox, and Actor Richard Dreyfuss was kind enough to read the iTunes EULA for us…um what? iWeb may be history and Gaz is not happy about it. iTunes Match gets a going over and Guy can’t end the show worth a darn.

FINDING MY RELIGION, DEVICE-AGNOSTICISM

On May 24, 2010, in Opinion, by Mark Rudd

PAGES AND THE IPAD

How excited I was to dream of Pages living in the Apple-lined cloud where I could create and edit my documents from anywhere at anytime with those files being served from one location with an ingenious silky-smooth Apple syncing system keeping all of my devices current and up to date. Let’s call it, MobileMe 2.0.

Fast forward to reality setting in. As I started out on my enthusiastic journey toward the promise-land of Pages on the iPad and cloud ubiquity, I was rudely awakened from my euphoric haze by the sad realities that are the limitations of Pages on the iPad. Don’t get me wrong, as a document creation and edit App, Pages is beautiful, full featured, and a testament to the unequalled ability of Apple to create software unlike any other in the industry.
