So you ask a question on Twitter and FaceBook and what happens? LOTS of listener feedback! Is Apple doing things a little bit different (as in changed from what they themselves were doing before) or is it a product of the GMen’s imagination? Apparently not based on your responses. iTunes, and iMacs, and fuzzy kittens gets discussed. Well not fuzzy kittens. Maybe next week.

No turtles were hurt (because we like them) in the making of this podcast, but brain cells could be an entirely different matter. We recording a few days earlier from now on which means you get all that GMen goodness a few days early too! Well until you get used to it and don’t think it’s a big deal anymore. Gaz watches the Olympics through the BBC on his iPad and Guy wipes Snowy off his Mac Pro. We’re both amused over the MASSIVE amounts of tablets Samsung sold last quarter (37,000) as well as other courtroom shenanigans from our friends from across the pond who never saw a good design they couldn’t steal! Dorothy Yamamoto asks us about iCloud and much much more!

How complex could Twitter be? After all the service condenses messages into 140 characters!

Twitter is one social network service that you shouldn’t judge solely by its outwards appearance. It is incredibly versatile.

The Twitter Book, Second Edition will take you deeper into the inner workings of Twitter than you ever thought was possible.

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.

Only about one and a half months togo until Macworld/iWorld! Hope you’ve got your hotel and flights arranged. Paul Kent from IDG comes on to talk about the new stuff this year and chat about his feelings (what?). Gaz hates iTunes or did until Lion seemed to straighten out most of his issues…well that and a new Mac. Twitter gets weird for the GMen and not one, but TWO new iTunes reviews! WOOT!

Much of the recognition with Siri on the new iPhone 4S is its ability to schedule meetings, set timers and reminders, and come up with some pretty humorous responses to off the wall questions. What hasn’t gotten a lot of press is one of the more powerful tools Siri’s voice-cognition capabilities offers to users of the iPhone 4S. Voice-dictation of emails, notes, and documents has never been easier. I decided to see for myself how well this is implemented with a few of the more frequently used apps on my iPhone 4S.

This one runs a bit long as in our longest show ever, but it’s chock full of great! Some terrific Twitter feedback that leads into a discussion about microphones and Application deletion software. Some email talking about why Reb WON’T buy an iPad, and Bill Palmer checks in and even stays for the third segment to talk about the upcoming 100th issue of BeatWeek Magazine! Guy gets his battery changed and annoys everyone with the theme song from the place that did it and lastly, Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference is coming but maybe no new hardware? Bummer.

The MyMac.com Podcast urges all our listeners to please go to iTunes and make a donation to the Red Cross to help with their relief efforts.

JollyJap gives the GMen a couple of weird stories (as our unofficial Twitter Correspondent! Congrats Paul…I think) and Tom Engels from the Explorer’s Podcast has a question or two about iTunes and GarageBand problems that is certain to induce nightmares for Guy. China seems to hate juveniles, and Android beating iOS in web tests goes down in a Blaze! Old timers remember Bungie’s Myth and now it seems to be back! Lastly, Adobe makes a Flash to HTML 5 conversion tool called Wallaby (but apparently doesn’t carry around their employees in a pouch). If Flash is going to win out over Apple’s objections, why do they need it?
