It what might be a record, Gaz and Guy not only manage to keep the show under an hour, it’s under 50 minutes! Hold your applause though because you may miss the greatest Gaz’s Tip EVER…well we thought it was funny anyway. Samsung loses round one of the most watched patent trial since Edison won his against whoever that other person was! Some terrific feedback from you, our fantastic audience and apparently in some cultures, hippos equals horses.

Wowsey wow wow! What a busy and long show this week. Guy performs minor surgery on hard drive enclosures and is SHOCKED he can’t buy stuff on Easter Sunday. Gaz goes to the Looe with friends (Sounds like an app to me) and wants to know what’s going on with F1. The Contest sponsors get some loving with Guy and Gaz reading marketing script but unable to do it with a straight face. Oh, and in minor news, some half a million plus Mac users have been hit by malware and are part of a bonnet…WHAT?!? No worries though because the GMEN are here to help (God help us all). Find scripts at the following links to check your Mac.

Oh, and yes, Guy changes the way he records the podcast…again. The 400th Podcast contest is almost at the close so hurry up and get your FaceBook Likes in before it’s too late.

Gaz couldn’t make it this week so Elisa Pacelli and Tom Schmidt agree (perhaps against their will) to keep Guy company on the show. Some of the topics include people who throw lawyers at glass doors and a new podcast done by the Tech women of the Stoplight Network. Elisa has a lot to say about Google Play and Tom has an app that falls somewhere between Halo and Microsoft Word. Qualified beta testers should contact him at All this, PLUS an interview with Drew Domkus of the Dawn and Drew show!

Gaz orders an iPad while Guy gives away an iPod Touch to his sister. Arnie gets REAL tired of Guy being unable to pronounce his name and takes drastic measures. We know we know, you’ve heard ALL about the new iPad and AppleTV…well not yet you haven’t until the GMen give their view. Also why let technical details keep you from installing the new iOS iPhoto app on your iPad 1st gen? Confused? You won’t be after this episode of the MyMac Podcast.

No big agenda this week, just lot’s of little things that add up to one crazy show. Guy finally breaks down and gets a Magic TrackPad but is somewhat unsure of just how it works without all those pesky wires all roll-y pointy things. The GMen are thankful they don’t play with lightsabers and go into a few different Video Sharing sites. Erick Diaz sides with Gaz and the Macs aren’t going anywhere debate, JollyJap wants to find some battery conditioning software in an audio question, and instead of an app pick, Gaz has some useful tips and tricks.

You’ll have to listen to find out what Chiroptophobia is, but the why they called the show that is still a mystery. Maybe they have a fear of naming things (no that would be Nomatophobia).The big 400th Podcast is coming up and Gaz and Guy can’t WAIT to give you people stuff for being so wonderful about listening to the show! However they seem to be able to make you wait until the 400th podcast actually happens. So far they have three companies willing to pony up some great prizes including BusyCal from BusyMac Software, the Co-Pilot iOS app from ALK Technologies , and MacKeeper 2012 from ZeoBIT Software. Then they go over a big list (but not a conclusive list) of the software they like on their Macs and why.

Cirque du Mac Party

Wednesday morning marked another fine breakfast at, yes, you guessed it, Mel’s Diner. It’s good, wholesome (fattening) food, well-prepared, and reasonably priced. What more can you ask of a diner?

MyMac Design for Non-designers
Rapid Websites with RapidWeaver

On November 30, 2005, in Opinion, by Bakari Chavanu

When I badly needed to get my small business website up and running, I didn’t have the time, patience, or the bucks for the granddaddy of web programs like Dreamweaver. But when I cried for help, a fellow videographer turned me on to what could be considered the great grandson of Dreamweaver, RapidWeaver (RW). While not a Macromedia product, this little web development program, created by RealMac, should be something like the iWeb in the iLife suite.

Like most all Apple’s programs, especially Pages and Keynote, RW is based on simplicity and elegance. For $34.95 (and so for free updates for licensed users), this program – if you have all your media resources developed–can help you build your website in less than a hour. I’m not kidding.

Recently updated, RW comes installed with thirty professionally built and simple themes in which you can drag and drop media into various types of pages to produce your site. You don’t have to mess around with tables, tags, layers, or HTML or CSS codes–that is, unless you want to.
