MyMac Podcast #495 – Why buy when you can rent?

On February 18, 2014, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

mymac495
Sponsored by OWC

Don’t you just HATE buying software and having that feeling of a one time price? Wouldn’t you rather just have to pay less for it each month or it stops working? Gaz and Guy debate this topic with their usual thoughtfulness so you probably shouldn’t expect a hard and definitive answer…or should you? Also the weather takes a hard beating or perhaps it’s the other way around, ISPs suck, Captain Kirk should sound like Curly, and Guy needs a more typical Press hat for Macworld. All this week on the MyMac Podcast.
