MyMac Podcast 741: TechQuake

Guy manages to half destroy his mancave and Gaz wants to go museum hopping! Also, Apple sells a lot of stuff but not as much as they promised they would (proooooomised!), FaceTime flaws, and Google/FaceBook did a naughty thing!

MyMac Podcast 740: AiMleSs

Yes the GMen are without direction. Yes, they meander all over the place. No, that doesn’t have anything to do with the show’s title. It’s a not very clever way to bring up a Macintosh Emulator. They also have a non-second section technical talk about all kinds of things and maybe they’ll start doing that in the second section too…unless they forget.

MyMac Podcast 739: You got a FRAND in me

There’s a great reason why the show has this name, but Guy can’t remember what it is. What he does remember is that buying stuff at Wish is not typically a wish granted. Gaz is editing his time-lapse videos on an iPad instead of his Mac and hacks and viruses just aren’t what they used to be. Lastly, feeling nostalgic for older Apple products? Well like bad food they may be back up again!

MyMac Podcast 738: Shiny Things

It’s traction distraction, what’s your fractions? Guy LOVES microphones and he’s disappointed when a cheap one outperforms an expensive one…especially after he’s bought both! Gaz is distracted by time…and time-lapse. But isn’t time-lapse something that happens anyway? Oh and we suppose the Consumer Electronic Show in Vegas is worth a mention or two.

Guy’s Pick: A very quiet USB microphone. Normally not a good thing but in this case the quiet is noise you didn’t want in the first place. Neewer’s NW-3U USB microphone at $28 is a great buy.

Gaz’s Pick: Anker Soundcore Fully waterproof 360 speaker bought a couple in the post Christmas sales and they are great. I got them for 29 gap each but at 60 maybe I’m not sure, however if you see them on offer GET ONE.

MyMac Podcast 737: Insert Airplane Joke Here

So it’s planes, lawsuits, the Queen of England (naturally), iPhone sales in China, time-lapse, and vodka. Especially vodka. And trying to find a cursor…without cursing.

MyMac Podcast 736: Yeah, twas the night before Christmas

Happy significant milestone that neither Gaz nor Guy remembered until this week everyone! Oh, and apparently a major religion is getting ready to celebrate the birth of the Messiah some 2000+ years later. Man, at least the GMen were only a week off! Mr. Yankello redos some graphics for Guy and Gaz can’t get enough of HomeKit. Also, Ming-Chi Kuo gets mentioned a lot, bent iPads are A-OK with Apple, and when is 5G that isn’t 5G, 5G? When AT & T says it is.

MyMac Podcast 735: Before we were so rudely interrupted

Gaz and Guy are back after a deserved by someone anyway week off. Almost completely without notes and any kind of structure which leads to hilarious shenanigans. Gaz’s got some stories and Guy just loses it several times.

MyMac Podcast 734: Mac mini for Pro Problems

Gaz is away so David Ginsburg from the Off the Charts and In Touch with iOS podcasts joins Guy for what ended up being the third time this week so he’s already tired of Guy’s nonsense probably. All the usual stuff and a discussion over whether or not the new Mac mini could be used as a pro machine.

There’s two bundles available as well. You can get the Audio Hijack and Loopback bundle for $130, which is almost $30 off or for $175 get those two along with the Fission Audio editor.

Gaz’s Pick: Not here so NO PICK!

Dave’s Pick:  Netgear Orbi

MyMac Podcast 733: A couple of Turkeys

While this might seem like a redundant statement (the GMen being turkeys), it fits in nicely with that American holiday of over-eating, full contact shopping, and apparently being grateful for something or another. Lots of MyMac stuff as appetizers, CarPlay, analysts, and Black Friday deal fails as the main course, and all the usual after stuff for…afters. YUM!

MyMac Podcast 732: What’s wrong with Wolfie?

A question that can only be answered by listening to the show because their minds work (kinda) in mysterious ways. The GMen run through the news like they were taking a machine gun nest with a take no prisoners attitude…except without the actual fighting, explosions, and so forth so not nearly as exciting or life threatening.

MyMac Podcast 729: Touch who needs it

Gaz’s iPhone XR shows up and he likes it but thinks his wife and Lil Gaz will believe it’s too big because size matters. Guy leaves stuff behind, not like anything bad like you should, but valuable stuff because he’s dumb sometimes. Lot’s of Apple stories and they enjoyed it SO much, they recorded it three times! OK, that part they didn’t enjoy.

Guy’s Pick: Want an audio recording app with some great built-in features? Spreaker Studio which is free has not only up to four available audio in sources, it also has built-in sound effects and a way to create auto-playing playlists and intro music/outro music. If you sign up for their hosting service you can also get support for chat rooms and other features, but I like the stand-alone recording app.

Gaz’s Pick: PAKO Car chase games from tree men games they have some which are ad supported and some that are £1.99, good short good fun, you have to evade being chased in other cars there are power ups and different cars once you get past certain levels, good fun.

Guy is not feeling well and he’s a miserable person when that happens, but it leads to hilarious hijinks! Gaz finally gets an answer from 1Password, but it’s almost indecipherable. And naturally all the usual nonsense you’ve come to expect from the GMen.

After a week off for REALLY good reasons (really they were!), the GMen are fresh and ready to go as usual!

They talk a bit about the upcoming event, walking holidays, amusement parks, weddings and a few other things including waffles.
