MyMac Podcast 690: Mistakes were made


Weird, but the title seems redundant. Micronesia and their Chinese food delivery industry is briefly discussed, another macOS password problem, CES wants Apple…BAD, the US Congress doesn’t understand tech (shocker), and a speaker says that the 4 biggest US companies were founded by immigrants or their children…like every US company…ever.

Guy’s Pick: With the Mac and iPhone losing ports as quickly as some politicians are losing their minds, one company has been supplying an audio solution for Macs that just need more ins and outs. Behringer’s UCA222 is a USB solution with two RCA left and right channel in ports and two out ports.

MyMac Podcast 688: Maybe Good, Maybe bad


Last show for 2017 and the GMen knocked it out of the park! Granted it was a pretty small park and slightly run down, but it was knocked out! LOT’S of MyMac articles because they didn’t do it last week and they had some special guests to help with that. Then like every other podcast they talked about Apple and something about batteries. Lastly they give ALL their resolutions for the 2018! Or they would have if they had thought of it at the time which they didn’t!

Guy’s Pick: If you need a good clean audio interface, the Presonas VSL series are great. 22VSL with 2 in/2 out (Mono) and 44VSL 4 in/4 out (mono)

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: Parallels Tool Box, lots of great tools, but this was 9.99 a year it’s gone up to 15.99 still great value, just hope the increase isn’t the start of an ever increasing cost.

MyMac Podcast 687: A GMenistmas Miracle

Didn’t want to leave you guys in the lurch for a show so just did a quick one describing our holiday plans mostly. Gaz’s sound much better than Guy’s since he’s cooking for his family (poor family) but does have an iPhone 8+ to play with. All of us at the MyMac Podcast and MyMac website wish all of you a wonderful holiday season!

MyMac Podcast 686: iMac Protastic


There’s a new iMac and it’s a pro model. It frigging SHOULD be with a starting price of $5000. Guy doesn’t like the YoLuke webcam, Gaz DOES like YouTube and neither are in the Christmas spirit until they started talking about Visigoths. Because NOTHING says happy holiday like barbarians at the gates.

MyMac Podcast 685: The End of an Era


400 episodes of the MyMac Podcast with Gaz and Guy and it only took them 685 episodes to get there! They talk about that also the HomeKit cockup, Amazon getting a little early publicity though they FINALLY get the Prime App out, and Google is less than pleased with them.

MyMac Podcast 683: Bent it like Beckham


Yeah YEAH! Famous well known footballer references that made lots of money vs the GMen who…do a podcast. It’s OK though because the reference actually has nothing what so ever to do with Beckham but bendable Apple keyboards. Also countries want more money from Apple and instead of changing the laws that made it possible for them to move their money out legally, they’re going to add MORE laws because that’s always worked in the past. Lastly, Google is Swiftly changing Fuchsia to some other color…or something

Guy’s Pick: Adobe Elements dual pack. Both PhotoShop and Premiere Elements in one package for the price of $80 from the retail price of $150. ()

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: Alto’s Adventure $0.99 Join Alto and his friends as they embark on an endless snowboarding odyssey. Journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness, through neighbouring villages, ancient woodlands, and long-abandoned ruins. Along the way you’ll rescue runaway llamas, grind rooftops, leap over terrifying chasms and outwit the mountain elders – all while braving the ever changing elements and passage of time upon the mountain.

MyMac Podcast 682: Visitor Parking is Allowed


A real off the rails show even more so than usual (which is saying something). The GMen can’t even get out of MyMac articles without something going horribly wrong, which is a source of great entertainment. Meanwhile, Apple is pre-loading High Sierra without asking (BAD FORM!), ISP’s still want to sell you TV instead of data (BAD FORM!), and Apple’s new Apple Park Visitor Center is now open with coffee, light snacks, and all the Apple gear your credit car can handle (BAD…well actually we’re not sure).

MyMac Podcast 681: When i have a problem


Ever notice how hard it is to describe a problem and solution over audio? Guy never has and attempts to explain his current setup using stone knives and bearskins…or a 2 mix minus setup with a Mac Pro and Mac Mini. Still confused? That will continue even after the explanation. The GMen talk about how the iPhone doesn’t like the letter “i”, tax havens, why the iPhone 8 isn’t selling as well as others think it should, and so much more.

Gaz is away and Karl Madden is kind enough to jump in. They talk about the double standard of how the tech press treats Apple versus other tech companies. Karl talks about ordering the iPhone X, an Apple Watch with LTE, and health apps. Then weird tangents about Star Trek, media companies, and Guy ranting about paid services with ads.

MyMac Podcast 676: The Meh Show


We have acrobatic cats, mad about wifi/bluetooth/an inexpensive computer that STILL gets a GMan in trouble, intestinal distress, and peeing in parking lots. All before we get out of the intro to the show. AOL shuts down a bit of history, Bionic vs Fusion, Jonny Ive not talking about anything, and a discussion about what we’ll talk about NEXT week. Hmm, seems like a full show for something so meh.

One is at home, the other is on the road. Look at the picture carefully to figure out who is who. Ohio is burning with hot chili and cool peppers. High Sierra is out, the FCC is mad because Apple won’t turn on non-existent radios, and everyone is afraid of Macs with old firmware that actually doesn’t mean all that much.

All kidding aside, please take a moment to give generously to the charity of your choice to help some of those in need after the recent weather related problems. Speaking of weather related problems, Guy’s brother Larry escapes from South Florida to the wilds of Northern Virginia and joins the GMen on the podcast. Equifax takes a grilling, Apple’s TV programing (or lack thereof gets smacked around, and Apple’s UK Music Festival gets tossed into the dumpster. Just FULL of good news aren’t we?

Gaz’s Tip: Siri’s Big Clock
Need to keep track of the time as you near an appointment or deadline? Just ask Siri on your Mac “What time is it?” You’ll get the answer, plus a clock much larger than the one in the menu bar. This clock continues to update so just leave it on the screen as you work. This is great for counting down the last minutes until the end of a work day or a scheduled phone call.
