MyMac Podcast 672: While my Podcast gently sleeps


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.

MyMac Podcast 671: And he’s back

So Guy FINALLY gets off the road and behind the mic to do a MyMac Podcast. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, some still think this is a good thing. Guy talks about his various goings on and Gaz talks about becoming a decorator! Then more talk about Apple events and whether or not someone will buy stuff. Hint: they probably will

For one week anyway, Guy and Gaz manage to record a podcast. Guy has had two teeth removed by an actual dentist and not by someone he managed to get mad at him and Gaz is really busy doing work and home stuff. Also his purple line issue is resolved. Why won’t Apple join the Advanced Mobile Location platform, Amazon wants to make food that doesn’t spoil, and the iPad’s Smart Connector doesn’t seem to connect to all that much.

MyMac Podcast 664: Socked in the Jawbone


For one week, Gaz and Guy are recording together. Next week, not so much but Guy will be at Macstock so he’ll probably be able to find someone to record with. In the center section it will be the 2nd part of the Stephen Tobolowsky interview! Lastly, Jawbone joins Fitbit in the rubbish bin of smart wearables. Instead what’s left of the company will focus on medical software and hardware, a segment that Apple doesn’t compete in…(gales of laughter)

MyMac Podcast 661: NanoBites and Road Sites

Well the road experiment did work, sorta and we had Gaz on for the first section. Half the time he couldn’t hear us though. So after that, Guy talks to his son Peter and his video partner Jake in creating original content on YouTube on their Nano Bites page. It was all about how they create this content on their Macs. A weird blend of serious and wacky.

Guy’s Pick: Levelator by The conversations network. AWESOME program for podcasters especially with multiple tracks! FREE!

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: So I got fed up of not having a clock on my desk top so I bought one from the Mac App store and I like it, the name of the App is UBClock. it sits on your desktop and over any apps you have running, it has various faces, can be made transparent, you can adjust the colours, whether it has a digital face or not, it’s simple, it cost a whole £0.99p (or $0.99cents) so if you’ve been looking for a clock for your desktop well go take a look at this one.

MyMac Podcast 656: Analysts agree with Gaz

Whether to be be smiling wisely and frightened beyond measure, many analysts are agreeing with Gaz that Apple’s interest in cars is as a service, not in the actual manufacturing of automobiles. Bloomberg wants to talk about tables, Apple makes a big glass out of itself with Corning, and sure, let’s give big government agencies backdoor access because based on the current ransomware they’re SO good at keeping it secret.

And these were the people you wanted Apple to give a backdoor in iOS to?

Guy’s Pick: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on Steam.  $39.99

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: Been looking for a journal on my IOS device and the Mac at the moment it looks like Day One is the App everyone is shouting about, but I’m trying the free version of the App Reminisce which has an in App Purchase to get the full App of 2.99 on IOS and 4.99 for the Mac, so a really great price. The thing with these Apps are you really have to give them a good try before settling on them. So I’ll let you know how I get on but so far so good.
