MyMac Podcast 749: Apple Watches are swell

A longer show if you include the after show but shorter than the short show from last week if you don’t. Got it? Good. Guy is upset about the AAF shutting down and Gaz is upset that Numbers isn’t Excel. They’re BOTH upset that Apple watches are making the news but not in a good way and that AirPower is impossible. Apple’s Airpower that is since regular air power is easy as pie but not for Apple…So Apple Pie…oh never mind.

Guy’s Pick: NDI from Newtek. It’s more a protocol than an application, but it’s really cool to see what it can do. Free-ish.

Gaz’s Pick: Believe or or not Safari. I use it more than other browsers and I use it more and more. Hey it’s not a bad browser, probably I like it because it helps keep you hidden from those bastards trying to get your every move.

MyMac Podcast 748: I don’t believe it

What if Apple had an event and a lot of people didn’t like it? That’s the question Gaz and Guy attempt to answer in this early and supposed to be shorter podcast. However it ended up nearly as long as every other podcast. Well of COURSE it did.

MyMac Podcast 746: Who’s who?

And the lull ends, so there is an Apple event at the end of March and I think they’ve announced the timings for the WWDC ticket lottery. So the End of March event could have a Who’s who of celebrities turning up, I wonder why?
Talking about celebrities as Guy is still frightening the locals somewhere in the depth south Karl Madden has joined me.

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.

Combine it with iStop Motion Remote Camera (Free) and you have a winner!

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.

After a week off for REALLY good reasons (really they were!), the GMen are fresh and ready to go as usual! So, Guy is particularly manic and Gaz is doing his level best to keep him in check which nearly always sometimes never works! They talk a bit about the upcoming event, walking holidays, amusement parks, weddings and a few other things including waffles.

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?

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.
