We get caught up on Guy’s adventure buying a car in Florida and how Gaz gets his iTunes for cheaps! The GMen go over some of what they thought was great from WWDC and then realize they forgot to mention a whole bunch of other things that they SAID they’ll get back to but probably won’t. Gaz’s language skills takes a horrible beating with Swahili and so much more!
Guy’s App Pick: Flat Out 2 by Virtual Programming .99 cents
Gaz’s App Pick: Pages for the win, created some templates for Invoice creation. Pages is so much easier (in my opinion) than Word on the Mac to do this sort of stuff.
People’s Pick: Erick Diaz likes the new Weather Channel app, newly refreshed to iOS 7 goodness JUST in time for iOS 8
Tim and David discuss what WWDC means for Apple, rather than going over each new feature introduced this week. We also delve into how the announcements and new OS’s could have a profound impact on the home console market. All that, plus an email from John Nemo sparks a discussion on in-app purchasing and how Android and Window users are getting shafted by an OPEN system.
Tim Robertson and David Cohen discuss the battle between Amazon and Hachette, as well as the business of book publishers and digital downloads in general. With WWDC coming right up, the guys also discuss what to expect Apple will announce this coming Monday.

Guy is away and Gaz chats to Will Green from the British Mac about all sorts of Mac and of course non Mac related items. Do you know why its best not to eat reheated rice, no, no neither do we. We chat about why Apple should create products that are simplistic in their use, the Mac Pro (well briefly) and all the usual mad capped stuff.
Well WWDC is almost upon us and the internets is exploding with thoughts and ideas why someone OTHER than Apple’s executives should be creating new stuff. Naturally about the same number as Ivory Soap’s purity (99.9%) will be wrong. Guy and Gaz would like to add to that number by talking about what they think will happen and the BEST part is you’ll know immediately just how wrong they were since this comes out after the WWDC Keynote. YAY! Also, hope you got some extra time, this is a loooong show.
Guy’s App Pick: Video Editor Pro from DFAV Team. $29.99 at the Mac App Store.
Gaz’s App Pick: Time-Lapse will turn a sequence of images into a QuickTime movie.
People’s Pick: Paloma. For DVD Ripping, I always use AppGeeker. It is easy to use.

OK, we promise not to make many more shows this long, but we did have a guest! Tom Schmidt from First Tech and MyMac.com joins the GMen for a lively discussion on WWDC and Microsoft’s new Surface Tablets. Guy deals with graduations, Gaz deals with a angry iPhone, and they both deal with new ways to possibly get podcasts in the future. You just have to deal with an extra long show.

Gaz’s daughters just can’t seem to keep their iPhones in good working order but if ANYONE is getting a new phone first it will be Gaz! Guy finds a solution to JollyJap’s problem with the Mac App Store…all he has to do is turn off a security feature. People seem to love planking, we just don’t know why. Apple actually announces some of the stuff for the big WWDC conference next week and we are SHOCKED. Gaz asks if we really even need a desktop or laptop computer anymore and lastly, we’re running a contest and you hardly have to do anything to win but be creative!
Also on a sad note, we say goodbye to long time MyMac.com writer, contributor, and all around good guy Roger Born who passed away after a long fight with cancer.

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.
Feedback from Gazzano9 and Steve Calmy (DON’T do option 3 Steve!) starts the evening off and then it’s a bit of cleanup regarding fixing some Macs of ours and friends. We talk some more about some of the prizes from the contest. Tonight it’s AppDelete and Default Folder X. We discuss some Finder enhancements and alternatives and finish the night with a smidgeon of WWDC. Have a listen!

Lee Givens talks about the Apple Design Award winning iPhone application AOL Radio with Tim and David, Sam Levin gives us some Cool Mac Picks and WWDC commentary, and John Nemo sends in a live recording session from the conference. A great show, topped by a cool GTA IV inspired intro thanks to Jason Zumwalt

Apple discussed a little bit about Leopard and software directions.
It is interesting to note that Leopard slipped a little bit; originally Apple was targeting end of 2006, now along with Vista, they’re targeting Spring ’07. I’ll be interested to hear the state of Leopard from the developers; is it Beta quality or only Alpha/development, and so on. If it isn’t mature, that signals that Apple is doing lots of foundation things that take a lot of time (and impact a lot of stuff). If it is mature, and I suspect it is, it signals something else. Apple probably wants to make sure they’re AFTER Microsoft in release in order steal thunder. MS says, “look at our best”, and immediately Apple starts a campaign, cutting the wind out of their sales, with their release which says, “and look at what we offer”. Or the old, “if you have to upgrade anyways, why not upgrade to the best”.
