Please wish David Cohen your ABSOLUTE best wishes in the hope he gets better soon.

Probably our longest show EVER, but it was all worth it as we had an extended conversation with Dave Hamilton from the Mac Geek Gab Podcast and BackBeat Media about Macworld, podcasting, how to sound good (like he does) and not so-so (like the GMen). Also some talk about how you should NEVER, EVER say bad words (but we sometimes do anyway). James Turner and Fitz John Baptiste has questions for the GMen and so can you over at our G+ MyMac Podcast page.

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.

Macworld’s Mac Troubleshooting Superguide
Review

On February 1, 2011, in Book Review, by Mike Breed

Macworld’s Mac Troubleshooting Superguide
Company: Macworld
Price: PDF: $12.95 USD, Printed Book: $19.95 USD, CD-ROM: $12.95 USD

Most of us are well versed in using our Macs and troubleshooting the comparatively few issues that arise from time to time with their use. Every now and then we run into a problem we aren’t quite sure how to approach. For instance, if your printer stops working after an upgrade of your OS, do you zap your parameter RAM or should you try uploading new printer drivers from Apple first? If you’ve tried a number of fixes and just can’t figure out what to do next, the Macworld Mac Troubleshooting Superguide may have the answers you’re looking for.

The Mac Superguide provides tips on everything from installing software and operating system upgrades to solving issues with networks. It’s virtually an A to Z guide to fixing just about every common issue that faces users of the Mac platform.

A quick walk of Macworld

On January 16, 2006, in Macworld Expo, by Owen Rubin

A quick walk of Macworld.

I wanted to walk the entire floor, and take pictures of cool things along the way, and after two full days here, I have seen maybe 50%. This show is big, and it is crammed full of people.

Digression: As I walked to BART (the local commuter train) last night, I saw two business men standing on Market Street in San Francisco trying to get a cab. One looks at the other and says, “Why can’t we get a cab tonight?” To which the other answers, “It is all these damn Mac geeks.” Made me smile, because there was a long line of cabs at the convention center, just waiting for people to use them and few were. Most of the Mac PEOPLE I saw were walking!

It’s Started Again: The Mac On Intel Rumors

On July 19, 2002, in Opinion, by Mark A Collins

Well, what MacWorld conference would complete without one of the usual
perrenial rumors resurfacing and generally making a mess all over the
place? No, these aren’t rumors of Disney buying Apple. Not even Sun or
SGI. And Apple definitely can’t afford to buy Adobe. There were some
pre-Expo rumors of Apple moving to IBM’s Power4 processor to replace the
G5 that Motorola can’t seem to ship. And then there were the rumors that
the Jobs keynote was somehow influenced by a pre-Expo party with a
certain furless shrew looking thing and a guy nicknamed “Wobs” involving
a wormwood enhanced super-beverage. But the best rumors by far were the
resurfacing of the “Apple’s going to move to Intel” rumors.

Macworld SF: Disappointment or Bank Account Raiding Fun?

On December 12, 2001, in Opinion, by Chris Seibold

I admit I get a little excited by new technology introductions. Take the recent introduction of the Segway personal Mobility device. I was a bit over stimulated. I woke up early to watch the unveiling on Good Morning America. I was impressed that this new high tech gadget would go over gravel, ramps, snow and even ice. Heck, I can’t walk across ice without incurring several compound fractures. Still I felt underwhelmed where was the irresistible urge to acquire one? Perhaps, I mused, I am in the minority. Perhaps the more intelligent folks surrounding me think this new “personal mobility device” is incredibly impressive. Was my initial reaction indicative of the majority of folks? To answer this question I would need to do some serious research, contract with a couple of polling firms and spend big dough. I briefly considered pursuing this course of action and decided it would probably make for drier than usual reading. Instead I turned to my lovely wife who was also watching Good Morning America and asked her if she thought it was cool. The conversation is related below:

Wall Writings
My Mac Magazine #38, June ’98

On June 1, 1998, in Wall Writings, by Mike Wallinga

Well, it’s become pretty much customary for me to mention the beginning and ending of each school year, so I’ll make no exception this time around. My freshman year of college has come to a close, and I’ve had many new and exciting experiences. However, I’m also ready for a dozen weeks or so of R & R, and I’m looking forward to spending the sunny summer days having some fun and earning some cash.

From a computer standpoint (after all, this magazine is called My Mac, not My Vacation), I’ll be happy to get away from the Windows-centric computer network at school. In the computer lab on my dorm floor, we had 13 Gateway 2000 computers, which varied from one 486-based machine to several 166MHz Pentiums. There were exactly eleven days out of the entire school year when all thirteen computers were functional for the entire day, and there were a couple of occasions when we had as few as eight computers working.

Starting Line
My Mac Magazine #37, May ’98

On May 1, 1998, in Features, by Barbara Bell

Dear Readers:

I absolutely LOVE the new Mac commercial… you know, the one where the Pentium dancer is on fire! Too funny! I also like the fact that Mac commercials are not only popping up more frequently, but the campaign itself is evolving-it’s about time!

I found a very interesting story this past month. You see, one of the first things I read each month is the back column in Macworld. The March issue tells an interesting tale of higher education. The gist of the story is a new IS guy at Yale. He took it upon himself to not only set a “standard platform” of Windows PC, but he smudged some statistics to back up his decision. What makes it really interesting is that he has no support in this endeavor, yet seems to command enough power to do what he wants.

The Challenge

On February 2, 1998, in Opinion, by Mark Marcantonio

The Challenge
Well, the news out of Macworld is heartening, Steve and the gang have managed to fool the “experts” by posting a 45 million dollar profit. And like most Mac fanatics, I was initially thrilled. But the underlying problem remains that fewer and fewer Macintoshes are being sold. Some in the Mac community failed to look at this fact and its long-range implications. Fewer sold machines means fewer new users to the platform. This in turn means fewer software programs are purchased, which in turn means a ever shrinking number of developers willing to write Macintosh applications.

Granted, returning to profitability is the first goal. But the focus must
include MARKETING. I use my hometown of Denver as a perfect example of lost opportunities. Denver is not only the highest educated city in the U.S.A., but the most Internet-connected city (per-capita) in the world. Yet, I have only seen 5 “Think Different” ads since the campaign began. That’s ridiculous under any circumstances. What’s even worse is that one of Apple’s biggest corporate clients, US West, is headquartered in Denver. There are well over 10,000 employees, with at least a third using Macs. These are potential customers not being recognized.

Starting Line
My Mac Magazine #32, Dec. ’97

On December 1, 1997, in The Starting Line, by Barbara Bell

Dear Readers:

Well, I’ve finally seen the “Think Different” ads. My first exposure was the back cover of an AdWeek magazine on October 13. Not flashy, but that’s okay. Flash doesn’t always equal substance. My problem is I don’t know who the supposedly famous guy in the ad is. Even so, it was refreshing to see a nice, large ad for Apple outside of Macintosh journals.

When I finally saw the television ad, I honestly didn’t know what it was at first. The angle of the ad, individuality, was what caught me. Hey, I’m a sucker for anything that promotes uniqueness!

I liked it. Okay, okay, it doesn’t have rush of a Pentium ad (and I grudgingly admit I like those commercials – disco was a wonderful time for me!). The Apple ad has something better: it captures Apple’s spirit. And since our wonderful country was founded on the concept of individuality, I suspect Apple’s campaign (IMHO) will begin to make a positive impact on Apple sales and perception. For all I know, it has already begun.

Wall Writings
My Mac Magazine #31, Nov. ’97

On November 1, 1997, in Wall Writings, by Abraham Amchin

Hello once again, everybody! It’s November, which means it’s time for my second annual list of “What I’m Thankful For in the Macintosh World.”

I’m thankful that Netscape decided to offer Navigator 4.0 separate from the entire Communicator package. My less-than-powerful computer can only dream of running Communicator, but I’ve found the stand-alone Navigator 4.0 to load faster, use less memory, and be more responsive than the 3.0 version. Kudos to Mozilla and company for this great move. I do wish the directory buttons would have stuck around, instead of giving way to the Guide pop-up menu, but now there’s more room on the screen to display the Web page itself now, so I guess it’s a fair trade-off. (That, by the way, was also my micro-review of Navigator 4.0 – if you’re still using 3.0, what are waiting for?)

I’m thankful that the Macworld/MacUser merger turned out the way it did. I was partial to the MacUser name, and would rather have seen Macworld merge with MacUser, but that’s a case of a six of one, half a dozen of the other. I think the best part of the whole deal is that now the best columnists and features in the industry are in between one set of covers. It’ll save me fifteen or twenty bucks a year in magazine subscriptions…

I’m thankful for MicroMac Technologies, because without their accelerator card installed in my LC, the last sentence of the Navigator paragraph would just be appearing on screen about now…
