No Gaz this week as he gets his revenge on Guy for being gone for MacWorld. Or something like though it may actually just be spending time with the family someplace fun and not about Guy at all. Speaking of run on sentences, Owen joins Guy and they talk about Macworld (though in no great detail) in a very informative and revealing (where we find out why Guy is Gus and Owen is Opie! How exciting is that!). STILL no end to the podcast contest (next for maybe sure!) and lots of some of the interviews done by the MyMac Staff at some Expo or something.

You’ve waited, and waited, and waited some more for the 500th podcast and it’s finally here! No app picks or much about the Macworld Expo this week or stuff from Google + or Twitter. Gaz and Guy talk a little about playing with organs (the musical kind) on iPads and then things get REALLY interesting when we get all the former hosts together into one virtual room. Naturally they talk a lot about the history of the podcast and a lot of it will make you laugh. Stand by for action!

Second day of Macworld but the last day for us all being together. Join Guy, Vicki, Elisa Mark, Eric, and Owen as they yammer a lot about things mostly related to some kind of Tech event…maybe.

So the Macworld Expo ends for another year. Guy couldn’t find Julie Kuehl to podcast with so he did a short solo show in the press room. While we wish the fun times could go on forever, we’re all too tired to go another day.

Macworld Expo / iWorld 2013 Videos

On February 4, 2013, in Features, Macworld Expo, Video, by Elisa Pacelli

For years I was envious of everyone who was able to attend Macworld. It’s The Promised Land, the Mecca for Apple and Mac geeks and enthusiasts. I never thought I’d ever be an attendee.

But I was there for Macworld 2013.

What an experience. I highly recommend everyone go at least once if at all humanly possible. If you do, you may discover vendors like the ones below.

Esoterism

When I saw the products in the Esoterism booth I knew I had to do a video interview. The cases are stylish and well-crafted. Global Sales Director Erica Hao was kind enough to give me an iPhone 4S case to review; look for that in the near future.

Apple gives to Hurricane Sandy relief maybe not until it hurts, but generously. On the home front, Guy might not go to the Macworld Expo and is unable to find his Time Machine. Gaz’s Finder issues may have been solved by NOT turning off his Mac Mini. Guy’s hatred of analysts persists with every stupid they say, Samsung sells more Galaxy SIII’s than Apple sells iPhone 4S’s in a single quarter, and Foxconn may build a plant in the US…sheyeah right!

The Last Ink Cartridge I Will Ever Buy

On February 28, 2012, in Features, by Owen Rubin

Inkjet printers are cool. In recent years, they have become very inexpensive, while at the same time, becoming high quality and very fast at printing. They come in various sizes and functions, with two to as many as eight ink cartridges needed. And therein lies the issue. Those damn ink cartridges always seem to run out of ink quickly.  I will tell you about a new company, Silo Ink, that cuts the cost of ink considerably, but first, some background.

HP Ink Cartridges. These are the last ones I'll buy.

Leading up to Macworld | iWorld 2012, reviews editor for MyMac.com, John “Nemo” Nemerovski contacted me with a sole purpose.

To collaborate like never before!

I was to find out that John had ideas far grander than simply remote editing and posting of articles and photographs. I love a challenge, and to be able to watch a master like John at work and assist in anyway possible is privilege.

(With thanks to Tony Bennett, who sang at the 2009 Macworld Expo to conclude the final Apple keynote address.)

This week’s Macworld|iWorld Expo was my tenth one, all of them for MyMac. I got a real stinker of a cold at the end of day one, Thursday, that put me on the disabled list for the duration of the 2012 conference. Nemo not happy.

Our other attending staff covered my appointments. Super thanks to them.

I was a solo act for most days of the first few years at previous Macworld January events. I ran around the enormous showroom floors in Moscone’s South and North halls like a maniac, then dashed back to the press room to submit my articles and photos. Later, after dinner with San Francisco relatives, I would stay up late planning the next day’s version of what I had just done.

Using the first-in-last-out method, I was the earliest early bird and the latest night owl in the bowels of Moscone press room every morning and night.

Three photos in this Nemo Memo are from those pre-2012 Macworld Expos

Guy’s audio on the floor was pretty bad (Tim has the GOOD Microphone), so Guy waited until he got home to try and clean it up. You can be the judge of how well he (or didn’t) do. These are the last five developer interviews on the Macworld Expo floor from Guy and Tim.

It’s the last day of the Macworld/ iWorld Expo and I feel like I owe you website readers an apology. I haven’t written much this trip and while I have a pretty good reason for it, it still doesn’t feel right. This was the “Take as little as possible to the Expo with just iOS devices to do everything I needed to” experiment.

iOS at the Macworld Expo

On January 24, 2012, in Apps, Features, iOS, iPad, iPhone, by Guy Serle

As said previously, I’m going all iOS this year. That means all audio, blogging, and video editing must be done strictly with the hardware and software only available through Apple’s iOS ecosystem and nothing else.

WordPress on an iPad

On January 7, 2012, in Features, iOS, iPad, iPhone, by Guy Serle

20120114-112109.jpg

As I’ve been moaning about for the last year on the MyMac.com Podcast, I’m not taking a Mac laptop to the Macworld Expo this year. I’ve decided to do everything on my 1st generation iPad to include audio, video, and blogging. All edited with a trusty iOS device. Oh I’ll have my iPhone 4S too to actually record the audio and video, but everything else will be done with my iPad.
