MyMac Podcast 707: Do I Care. No!


Gaz is back but this week Guy has gone, that could be good, or equally it could be bad! Don’t panic though has has a guest who he finds out hasn’t been on before, shocker! Simon AKA Serenak joints Gaz and brings some intelligence the the show, finally I here you say.
So does Gaz care well you’ll have to listen particularly to the middle section, but with Gaz’s view from his garden you might already guess the answer.

MyMac Podcast 705: A Lonely Guy


Because Guy can barely pay attention to …well anything, he forgot that Gaz wasn’t going to be this week and hadn’t set up to record with anyone else. He talks about seeing the new Avengers flick, Apple financials, and the potential for broken microphones in iPhones after updating to iOS 11.3

Next week is the annual report from Apple when we find out once and for whether or not all those people predicting doom and gloom for Apple are right or wrong. Until next quarter that is.

MyMac Podcast 703: Dumb Arsed Analysts


So the GMen are tired of dancing around this, the world is filled with dumb arsed analysts and every media outlet seems determined to give them a platform to speak from. They do the show live (still in testing) on FaceBook, and are very sorry they missed last week and promise it will never happen again unless it does.

MyMac Podcast 699: Just One Away


Holy moly, just ONE show away from 700! Actually since you’re reading/listening to the podcast, it is zero shows away. Or something, math is hard. Gaz not here this week, so my son Peter who is the owner of my former Mac Pro to talk about…stuff. We chat about the crazy issues we had with the three week odyssey of getting the Mac Pro working, the upcoming Apple event, and scammy/scummy ink jet printers and the companies who make them.

MyMac Podcast 697: We Love-Hate Apple because…Reasons


Which pretty much sums up how most people feel about Apple but they don’t have a podcasts and we do! We’re doing a little experiment by also recording video (that will be out later) that hopefully will eventually entice people to sign up to our Patreon account or make them leave us in droves. If you leave though you’ll miss stuff on wearables, finances, Buffett (Warren not Jimmy) and our continuing hate affair with analysts. So yeah, don’t miss that.

MyMac Podcast 695: 15 equals 51


Is this some kind of crazy new math? Have the GMen lost their minds? Well, yes but not because of this. Apple makes a disproportional amount of profit as compared to their marketshare, one bad unicode can spoil the bunch girl (Jackson 5 reference if you didn’t know), the HomePod leaves a ring around the collar, and Apple’s wearable market by itself could be a Fortune 300 company. All this and their usual silliness.

MyMac Podcast 694: Defining Definitions


The GMen talk about 5G. A subject neither knows much about, but that’s never stopped them before and this time is no different. Gaz is excited about Apple’s HomePod but isn’t exactly sure why and Guy is mad at his dental insurance company but knows EXACTLY why.Oh and at some random point they talk about the last Super Bowl for some reason.

MyMac Podcast 693: The Adam and Eve Show


No nudity is involved (thank God) but there may be a snake or two. Meanwhile the GMen briefly go over Apple’s quarterly results and then tear apart a writer for a certain website that they think is an idiot. And when the GMen think someone ELSE is stupid, that’s really saying something.

Guy’s Pick: A good friend asked to get some info and songs off two old iPods (not DRMed) and this program did the trick AN it’s free! Syncios from syncs.com. I just needed it to get content off old devices, but if you want to use it to manage or do device to device data transfers those cost extra.

What does the Empress Wu Zetian, leap years, and Beretta shotguns have in common? Guy’s wife leaves him…again, but he has a big ass heavy backpack to keep him company, Gaz’s iMac seems slow, Apple will pay more in tax in a single day that no single person ever will probably pay in their lifetimes. Also is Apple falling behind and Sir Jonny speaks!

So all that oversea’s money is coming home, well we thinks it’s all going home, and whats going to happen to all that dosh.

We quite like this news, but it does make us wonder on a wider scale if Apple are just dropping behind when it comes to Car Kit and HomeKit and Siri, other companies seem to be taking a lead, and some of those leads could be quite large making it hard for Apple to then get a foot back in the door.

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.
