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.

MyMac Podcast 679: A Dark Mirror


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.

The GMen play a game that has a certain politician’s name but it isn’t about him. SHHH! Don’t tell him, he get’s jealous. OH! Also someone used the Skype phone number!

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.

MyMac Podcast 675: 10 from the Top

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.

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.

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.

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)
