MyMac Podcast 719: Mally Malware is a bad clown!


Hang overs, feeling weirdly normal, and pantomiming River Dances is all part and parcel of this week’s show where apparently they also talk about something serious like malware. Can you sing one song to the tune of another? Harder than it sounds, but is hilarious.

Guy’s Pick: Looking for a good audio interface? Behringer’s UMC line is a mix of both good and cheap. Make sure you get the UMC series which has Midas-ish pre-amps and not the UM series with the Xenex pre-amps. Depending on your needs, they have units with up to 8 combo XLR inputs. All do multiple mono outputs over USB

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: Flow $4.99

MyMac Podcast 718: That’s a lot of zeros


Guy falls asleep when he could have been podcasting so they record on his wife’s birthday instead because how could THAT go wrong? They toss about Apple’s trillion dollar worth and why it hasn’t also made them rich and Cupertino being all fussed because Apple made money and they want some of it. Also, why NOT make a Hyperloop transportation system that goes 800MPH through residential neighborhoods?

Gaz: Weekly News snippets It’s all about the numbers, so much news around the fact that Apple are doomed, no seriously!!

Guy stuff:

Recode says Apple is the first US company to hit 1 trillion dollars in value, but also warns that the second trillion will be tricky!

Not All Locals Thrilled With Apple’s Trillion Dollar Milestone

Forget hyperbole, how about an 800MPH Hyperloop?

Guy’s Pick: Not a tip but a question. Does anyone listening use Logic Pro to record their podcasts instead of GarageBand? I’m hearing lots of skips in the audio with GarageBand that I don’t hear while recording.

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: TIME MACHINE Come on I could say anything else could I?

MyMac Podcast 714: Hear us Roar-er


Gaz watches cars go zoom so Guy grabs Karl Madden from the Mac & Forth podcast to fill in. This will make up for when Guy is Driving to Chicago is a car going zoom on his way to Macstock and Gaz will do the podcast with someone else…maybe Karl. Technical difficulties wipe out the center section so they had to do it again, but this time is was better…which is not how that usually goes. Spotify, Mojave, disgruntled employees, and so much more!

MyMac Podcast 713: Unusual Expected Weirdness


A loooooong delay while we worked on some technical issues on Gaz’s side, but we narrowed it down to three things. Hardware, software, or the internet. So should be easy to narrow down from there. Speaking of the internet, Skype used to be awful, now it’s horribly, unspeakably, Micheal Myers kind of bad. Apple will finally use it’s own data for maps because that can’t go wrong, There either is or isn’t a brute force hack of iOS (there isn’t), and someone in Canada can’t figure out that scratch resistant isn’t scratch proof because he’s really dumb.
