MyMac Podcast 473: Brightening Everyone’s Day

On September 10, 2013, in Podcast, by Tim Robertson

mymac473
The GMen are back and just before an Apple event that will no doubt delight and astound us all! Or maybe it’ll just be a phone or two. Anyway Gaz and Guy have a good time catching up on Guy’s Florida trip and his attempts as pitiful as they were at surfing. They look at some issues of the day and continuously get sidetracked away from what they started talking about. In other words, just as it ever was!

People’s Pick: From Gary Apter If it hasn’t been mentioned previously, I recommend Bubble Fever for iOS. The warning is that I’m finding it totally addictive – so user beware! I think it is free and I haven’t been tempted for in-app purchases…

Renting software – MyMac Podcast #457

If software doesn’t come in a box, is it still your software? Trick question because it was NEVER your software to begin with. Microsoft and Adobe are keen to remind you of that with a monthly fee for their most sought after programs like Office and Creative Suite. On the lighter side, the GMen get an iTunes review in Morse Code, neither can mange to say Esoterism Tesseract,and apparently it’s too much for Google to do a search.

Well the news is out. Apple will be assembling an entire Mac line here in the US. Wonderful news and all that, but why does it ring somewhat hollow? The MyMac Podcast has a new way to talk to the GMen. It’s our Google+ Community page! WOO! Now you can…do all the stuff like before…just in yet another place. Yeah, that’s a win.

The Biggest Losers

On October 1, 2012, in Apps, Features, iOS, Opinion, by Guy Serle

 

With not much else to report on, tech blogs seem focused on two things concerning the iPhone 5/ iOS 6 launch. The first is that the iPhone was SUCH a disappointing launch with ONLY 5 million units sold the first weekend. ONLY 5 million sold. The only constraint wasn’t a lack of customers, but a lack of hardware. Apple probably could have sold another 5 million that first weekend if they had them, but they didn’t. So for analysts to claim that they should have sold 7-8 million is nonsense and apparently that’s the basis for their disappointment?

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.

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!
