Then, HP kills off not only the new WebOS devises, but all their consumer PC business to boot. Double yikes! Finally, would you rather have forty iOS games, or one Nintendo 3DS game?

Also another chance for one of those oh so wonderful WOOTie Awards and is that a banana in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

Don is in BIG trouble with the GMen! He promised to be on but let his daughter’s 18th Birthday get in the way! BAD Don! We have a great show regardless with a good discussion about Lawyers, Guns, and Money but without the guns as it relates to recent events concerning Apple and Google. That’s followed up with a good laugh (from Guy anyway) about Microsoft taking over big in the mobile market at Apple’s expense.

Guy has his Mac Pro and through a Herculean effort has it ready for the podcast! Gaz has a new toy too and it’s making Guy drool. I wonder what it could be that would take his mind off his new (for him) Mac Pro?

All this fuss about Apple’s policy toward subscriptions gets tossed around a bit and they snipe (with love natch) at Google. Lastly, can an iPhone and iPad take the place of a whole bunch of other gear that someone might bring to say…the Macworld Expo? We’ve got most of a year to figure it out.

AppMenuBoy
Review

On May 23, 2008, in Review, by Nate Eaton

AppMenuBoy
Company: Google

Price: Free
http://code.google.com/p/appmenuboy/

AppMenuBoy 1.0 is a handy little application that takes away some clicks (and valuable time) to get an application opened. It also put your apps in a quick invaluable hierarchical list, so one can get to all apps in no time flat.

As the included AppMenuBoy “Read Me” This is a small Cocoa application that creates a hierarchical menu, in the dock, and when it is the frontmost app, in the menu bar, of your apps. It only shows apps. If a folder has a single app, it hoists the app up, so no subfolders of exactly one app.

And it works great. I’m running Mac OS 10.4.11, the last version of Tiger, and I feel like I’ve been given it’s a free download something that should have been included with Mac OS X, although the fact that AppMenyBoy exists gives me more faith in third-party developers. The author, David Phillip Oster, created the program for Max OS X 15.0 and he says, “I admit, that AppMenuBoy made more sense when I first wrote it back in the 10.5.0 days. But, there are enough differences between it and Apple’s 10.5.2 implementation that I thought it was worth posting the AppMenuBoy source code.”

Macspiration 62
Google’s Online Office Options 

On December 19, 2006, in How-To, Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow


For years the standard in word processing and spreadsheet programs has been a program housed on your computer’s hard drive. You run the program off the computer, and save everything on your computer or an external device. Recently, online applications have started popping up and they are starting to become a nice, viable, and free option.

At my school we have started to use Google’s line of applications (the word processor was formerly Writely), and the MyMac.com staff uses the spreadsheet application. The greatest feature is the ability for multiple people to edit the same document or calendar at the same time (or a different time) from anywhere with internet access. The documents are then stored on Google’s servers. Another fantastic feature in Google Docs is the ability to revert back to an older version of the document. If someone totally messes up the document beyond repair, you can choose a version from the past to revert too. This is very similar to what Apple’s Time Machine should be like in Leopard.

London MacExpo 2006 report

On October 27, 2006, in Features, by David Cohen


The London show is not directly Apple sponsored, like those in Paris or San Francisco, but they do have a good record of attendance, and this year is no exception.

When I attended last year, the show was abuzz with the new iPod Nano and iPod with video, which had been launched a few weeks previously, and the then G4 Powerbooks had just received an incremental speed bump and screen update.
