So you ask a question on Twitter and FaceBook and what happens? LOTS of listener feedback! Is Apple doing things a little bit different (as in changed from what they themselves were doing before) or is it a product of the GMen’s imagination? Apparently not based on your responses. iTunes, and iMacs, and fuzzy kittens gets discussed. Well not fuzzy kittens. Maybe next week.

It’s Guy’s birthday and he’ll podcast if he wants to, but Skype seems to think it’s a bad idea. Yep another Skype sucks and we hate it kind of show. We still had fun though making fun of Microsoft and wondering just how long has it been since most of the Mac line had been updated. Gaz gives a great tip and to the surprise of no one Guy hadn’t heard of it before. Most be his old age kicking in.

The future, what do you mean? How can we be in the future?


For decades many of us have been in awe of the possibility of the future. Not that long ago the thought of carrying a single panel computer capable of presenting music, film, books, and games was nothing more than science fiction.

I live by the belief that if man can envisage it, people can create it.

Of course, there is the possibility of going too far, as is famously shown in Planet Of The Apes, circa 1968.

For now we can sit back and relax with a small and hopefully harmless portion of technology that seemingly has the effect of enhancing our lives.
