Problem Solving Guy 6
Of Intel Macs and Men

MyMac Podcast 29 – Intel and Apple

This special edition podcast is all about Intel and Apple. Click here to download the show in MP3 file format.

This edition is sponsored by Small Dog Electronics

At the start of the show, Tim mentions that because this is a special early in the week edition of the podcast, there would be no Not Mac News with Chris Seibold. Turns out Tim spoke prematurely! Chris came through after the show was recorded with a new NMN, so with a little bit of GarageBand and QuickTime Pro editing, NMN is here.

What does the announcement of Intel in all future Macs mean to the users, the developers, and everyone in between? Chad and Tim take over a half-hour on just that subject.
