MyMac Podcast 555: iLife 15

LOT’S of links this week because Gaz and Guy are talking about the NEW iLife 15 or would if it actually existed. It doesn’t, but they talk about programs that you can use that does most of the same stuff and in some cases even more. Guy almost lets his Drobo get the better of him (like that’s really hard) and Gaz is about ready to kill whoever signed off on the Photos app. Well, perhaps maim a little bit.

Guy’s App Pick: Halo by Microsoft it can be found for free if you look hard and do some digging. Doesn’t work from the original discs you must get the 2.x updater
Gaz’s Pick: Mini Motor Racing game having fun with it. £0.79
DropBox, I know everyone knows about dropbox but the family have been sharing documents between each other in relationship to the recent bereavement, sad subject but DropBox functionality has made document sharing so much easier. On a brighter note I’ve also linked a Photo library with the family so happy memories can be easily shared.
People’s Pick: From Mark Sheppard a podcast (shock horror Mark!)
