Prosoft bills Drive Genius as "THE industry standard disk utility for the Mac platform." That’s a big claim, so I thought I’d have a look at the latest Leopard-compatible version, Drive Genius 2, to see if I could improve the performance of my 1.83 GHz MacBook. Short answer? Yes!

Our longest podcast of the week is one of our best yet. Tim and Nemo look at the days event, and talk about some of the booths and events of the day. Nemo interviews New York Times technology writer David Pogue, while Tim does an on the spot interview with Sinbad. (yes, we know the audio is bad for the Sinbad interview, but what the heck.) More Apple Quiz from the Prosoft Engineering, and Guy and Nemo pay some Booth visits.

Booth recordings at EA Games, Music Wizard, Notion Music, and some Apple Trivia from the Prosoft Engineering Booth. A ton of fun, plus Larry, Guy, and Tim from the hotel room talking about some of the days activities. And what’s this about a NEW AOL Macintosh client? Really?
Everyone hates doing backups. I know I do. Like most utility software packages, products like this are ignored until it is too late, and your precious data is gone. It’s funny how diligent I was at work (I suppose my job being at stake had something to do with it…), yet I almost never backed up anything at home. I’ve been playing the odds for a lot of years, and have so far been pretty lucky.
This is our longest show ever at almost an hour and a half. We talk the latest in the Mac world, how we record our podcasts, and so much more.
