Gaz is off doing fun family things and Guy managed to grab Karl Madden on to talk about Apple’s policy of secrecy surrounding their upcoming products. They also talk about Apple’s last financial quarter but more importantly, who were the winners of the Feral Interactive Lego Marvel Super Heroes give-away!
We didn’t release the show we recorded last week with the sudden death of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs since our normal frivolity with the release of the iPhone 4S and iOS just didn’t seem appropriate. However Gaz and I got together with Tim and Dave from TechFan (along with quite a few other people…go download TechFan 50 for the whole show) on Friday the 7th of October to talk about our memories of Steve and Apple amongst other things. Tim kindly pulled out the bit with Gaz and I and we’re using that for the an extra-long intro to our show. Not wanting to let anything go to waste, the podcast we recorded last week will play after that
Because weird iPad cases are what we like best!

Comic Life Magiq
Price: $44.95 new customer or $29.95 cross-grade from Comic Life (See article for limited time special pricing)
Comic Life Magiq is the latest piece of software by the folks at Plasq and they have hit another home run. It is a spin-off of they’re great Comic Life software. The best way to describe Comic Life Magiq is by saying it is part Comic Life, part Kai’s Power Goo (for those that remember this software), part iWeb (as far as templates), and part iPhoto.
Comic Life is software that provides the tools for making a comic book on your Mac. Comic Life Magiq takes this one step further by providing templates for your comic. You get to fill in the images. There are 12 templates that range from a birthday theme, to pets, to vacations Within these themes are a collection of pages based on that theme, and those pages have pre-made templates with different image arrangements.
There was a time when Kid Pix was the only good option for a kid’s paint program. Well, times are changing. In the past year I have had the chance to review several new options to the market, and 2008 brings another worthy choice. Doozla by Plasq (the makers of Comic Life and Skitch) is a fantastic new paint program for children.
When you open Doozla you are presented with one of four options: “Coloring In,” “Drawing,” “Draw on a Background,” and “Webcam Drawing.”
