The MyMac.com Podcast urges all our listeners to please go to iTunes and make a donation to the Red Cross to help with their relief efforts.

JollyJap gives the GMen a couple of weird stories (as our unofficial Twitter Correspondent! Congrats Paul…I think) and Tom Engels from the Explorer’s Podcast has a question or two about iTunes and GarageBand problems that is certain to induce nightmares for Guy. China seems to hate juveniles, and Android beating iOS in web tests goes down in a Blaze! Old timers remember Bungie’s Myth and now it seems to be back! Lastly, Adobe makes a Flash to HTML 5 conversion tool called Wallaby (but apparently doesn’t carry around their employees in a pouch). If Flash is going to win out over Apple’s objections, why do they need it?

iPad Theft, iTunes, and eBooks
TechFan #14

On January 14, 2011, in Podcast, TechFan, by Tim Robertson
Tim and David discuss adventures in catching iPad thieves. Or, more appropriately, Tim’s stupidity on said subject. iTunes turns ten years old, and we look back on a decade of ups and downs with the venerable software. Finally, Tim falls in love with Kindle! Or at least the software and book selection, and even has a ebook recommendation for you!

A longer show than normal (normal being a relative term with the GMen) but filled with great stuff! We totally botch telling someone how to do a Nuke and Pave and can’t find a Spanish Dictation program to save our life. We LOVE the Mac App Store but have a very odd way of showing it, and talk about how the Verizon iPhone may be a big deal in the US, but it’s a been there and done that most other places.

The Macworld Expo is coming SOON and Tim and Guy will be on the Main Stage at 12 on Saturday the 29th of January! In the meantime start listening to Tim and Dave on the TechFan Podcast or ELSE!

The most contentious episode of TechFan to date, as Tim Robertson, David Cohen, and special guest Owen Rubin discuss the role of government in Technology and the Internet. The debate then moves on to the music industry and the TSA, and hilarity ensues. The start of the show has Tim discussing a very odd iTunes problem, and maybe you have the answer!

Listener Invite John Blagden

A long and winding show across the universe of Mac Topics. John Blagden joins the G-Men and gives us quite a lesson on what Mac Pros want from their hardware, ESPECIALLY the now-canceled XServe. Gaz seeks and finds some help for his MacBook and Guy has grown to hate his current iMac for NOT running GarageBand properly. The Beatles are now on iTunes and after all this time, how big a deal is it really?

MOG is a life changing experience for serious and casual music lovers who want to hear precise tracks, albums, and artists — when and where and how they desire to hear them. MOG’s web site and iApp are works in progress, that requires a modest paid monthly subscription for an astonishing quantity of top quality audio selections.

It is tempting to distinguish MOG by comparing it to other established Internet music services, and by concentrating on what MOG is not, instead of what it is. The company rep says that “MOG is not a radio service. MOG is an on-demand service and offers radio, but to compare it to only a radio service such as Pandora which ONLY provides streaming radio is not accurate.”

This MyMac first look and listen will introduce readers to some of MOG’s best features. Subsequent articles and podcasts will go deeper, with additional praise and criticism.

It’s MY Idea (The Train Wreck Show!)

Guy
is back from being ill but it doesn’t seem to make things easier for Gaz. It starts off a little rough (but Guy doesn’t edit it out because it’s funny) and gets crazy from there. Gaz thinks he may still need an AppleTV and Guy builds a RAID 1 for his iTunes content. Are Netbooks getting killed by the iPad or are they victims of their own crappiness? Android tablets are on the way (eventually), but should Apple be concerned? Would you be interested in a smartphone app that helps you through a museum, art gallery, or other attractions? The Eiffel Tower rents out iPads to do just that. Microsoft is finally putting out Windows Phone 7, some three years after the iPhone.

Tim’s new podcast is ALSO now out. If you liked OWCRadio, you’ll love TechFan and you’ll find it in the MyMac iTunes feed.

MyMac Podcast 310: Gaz is Touchless

On September 9, 2010, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

Listen to the show here! *link fixed! Thanks, Nemo!
Gaz
orders and then cancels a new iPod Touch because he loves animals more than technology. Guy runs Ethernet cable which messes up the house (and doesn’t please his wife) and we have a Listener Invite this week with Roman Woznik of the MacCoreTV Podcast. We have a bit of a gab about if Apple should actually reign IN some of the less well thought out apps in iTunes for iOS as it passes over 250 thousand available. Also some talk if Apple is holding the iPod Touch back to make the iPhone look even better. There’s a couple of birthdays and believe it or not, Guy accepts cash (or if you can’t swing that, call the Skype number 703-436-9501 and wish him a happy birthday!)

Arctic Sound S111 Portable USB-powered Speakers
Company: Arctic Cooling
Price: $15.45 US

USB powered speaker are lousy, right? Wrong! The chilled-out company Arctic Cooling just released a hot pair of stereo speakers that can play anywhere, and they mean anywhere. No sound panel preference settings or software drivers are necessary. Plug the audio cable for this high-performance pair of stylish gray speakers into your audio device, then provide a USB power source and blast off. Stereo separation is terrific.

LALA no more! Maybe Good news for iTunes?

On June 3, 2010, in Macintosh, Opinion, by Owen Rubin

In December 2009, Apple bought Lala. On June 1st, 2010 Apple closed down the cloud-based Lala music service and no reasons were given by Apple. (Lala music subscribers should go to the old lala site location for more info.)

Lala used to sell streaming versions of a song for 10 cents. For that dime, you could stream those songs to a number of devices. You could also buy and download an MP3, and those prices were closer to what Apple charged.

Moderna MS-400 Folding Headphones – Review

On January 4, 2010, in Headphones, Review, by John Nemerovski

Moderna MS-400 Folding Headphones
Company: Phiaton

Price: $249
https://www.phiaton.com/

MS-400 are the best compact, folding, DJ-style headphones we have reviewed at MyMac. Personal listening is their purpose, and they can be used in a DJ or studio environment with an extension audio cable.

The first things you notice about the MS-400 Moderna over-ear headphones is they are remarkably comfortable. Their light weight and anatomically correct design allow them to fit well even when you are wearing glasses. The next feature that captures your attention is the powerful but not overpowering bass. There is more punch and clarity at the low end than you ever have experienced.

EyeTV 3 – Review

On February 20, 2008, in Macintosh, Review, Video, by Donny Yankellow

EyeTV 3
Company: Elgato

$79.95 new users, $39.95 upgrade
www.elgato.com

For those that aren’t familiar with EyeTV it is software that turns your Mac into a DVR with the proper hardware (I use a Miglia MicroTV). At Macworld EyeTV 3 was released, with a bunch of new features. Are the new features worth the price to upgrade? That depends on you. Read on to find out more.

The most obvious change in the new version of EyeTV is the look. It has more of an iTunes/OSX feel and a lot of eye candy. Part of this interface change is the ability to view your recordings in a Coverflow look. A nice touch.

Moving your iTunes Library

On September 24, 2007, in How-To, by Guy Serle

I just bought an iPod Classic. Well, not quite. My Wife bought me an 80 GB iPod Classic for my birthday. I could have gotten any of them, but the new iPod nano that is video capable was swallowed up in my huge hands and the click-wheel felt very fragile as compared to the previous versions. She also asked if I wanted to wait until the iPod Touch was out, but after playing a bit with its more expensive brother the iPhone, I decided against it. I use my iPod mostly in my car and the comfortable and easy to use click-wheel is better for what I wanted an iPod for.

So good for me, I now have a full-sized iPod. So what? Well, this is the first iPod I’ve owned that was video ready and this necessitated some changes in how I manage the media for it. I do have two iTunes purchased movies (Star Trek: Generations and The Sixth Sense) and a boatload of TV episodes (Heroes, 3 seasons of Battlestar Galactica, a few South Parks), but I keep them and most of my other QuickTime/iTunes compatible video files off my main drive. Why? Because they take up a LOT of room.
