Gaz is not feeling well, so James Turner (from woodpad.co.uk fame) steps in to keep Guy in line (as if). BIG announcements regarding the 500th podcast! OWC is not only sponsoring some prizes to give to the best Bumper makers, but is also helping Guy go to the Macworld Expo this year! Woo Woo! James and Guy go through the usual stuff and then talk about Apple’s latest way to separate people from money (just not all to them), iBeacons. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it latest dance craze sweeping the nation? YOU decide!

Guy’s App PickHandbrake by Handbrake.fr TOTALLY free
Gaz’s App PickAudio Book Builder, I’ve picked this before but I recently bought some audio books from a charity shop, and as iTunes does not import Audio CD’s I went straight back to my favored program. It’s available through the Mac App store in the UK at £2.99 this is a steal at that price. There is a free trial on the web site but to be honest just buy it. $4.99
Jame’s App PickLogitech Harmony 650 Remote $59.99 at Amazon

About Larry Grinnell

Larry Grinnell has been a Mac user since before there were Macs, first being exposed to his brother-in-law's Apple Lisa 7/7 office system, in 1982 or 1983. After a nine year stint in the US Air Force, he took an electronics technician job at Motorola, Inc., where he stayed for almost 27 years. In that time, he held additional diverse positions from manufacturing engineering technician to technical writing to print production consultant to department webmaster. Currently, he's the sole technical writer for a small communications/electronics firm in Davie, FL. He is a member of the MyMac.com writing staff, and recently completed a two-year stint writing a weekly Macintosh and Apple-oriented column for the Palm Beach Business website (http://www.pbbusiness.com). In his copious free time, he does layout and prepress work for the Grinnell Family Association's quarterly newsletter, and runs their website at http://www.grinnellfamily.org. He also serves on the board of directors for the Palm Beach Phoenix Apple User Group. His next big assignment is to perform the editing, layout, and prepress work for an all new Grinnell family genealogy, which promises to be roughly 2,000 pages in size. Publication date is tentatively scheduled for 2015. He lives in Greenacres, FL. His cat Agnes grudgingly permits him to share her home with him.
