MyMac Podcast 658: Should I stay or should I go?


Lots of products that haven’t been updated and WWDC right around the corner. Should have been an interesting topic but it ended up not so much. No matter when Frisian still provides lots of entertainment value!

Adam Curry makes a Pro Podcasting bit of kit

Fake smokes can bring real problems!

Touch-a Touch-a, Touch me!

Apple Pizza, not sure about that.

Apple have added some more video’s to the how to shoot on iPhone7 page.
Apple’s market cap has eclipsed the city of Chicago’s real GDP

Ummm how much time does Jonny spend at Apple?

Just made me laugh Trump’s iPhone has one app: Twitter (Not political folks just funny, oh and by the way we in the UK do a lot of political satire)

There’s always one isn’t there!

Guy’s Pick: Levelator by The conversations network. AWESOME program for podcasters especially with multiple tracks! FREE!

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: So I got fed up of not having a clock on my desk top so I bought one from the Mac App store and I like it, the name of the App is UBClock. it sits on your desktop and over any apps you have running, it has various faces, can be made transparent, you can adjust the colours, whether it has a digital face or not, it’s simple, it cost a whole £0.99p (or $0.99cents) so if you’ve been looking for a clock for your desktop well go take a look at this one.

Guy’s Pick: Guys not here!

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: I’ve picked it before I’ll probably pick it again but it’s Automator, just go and find a multitude of Automator YouTube videos and crack the lid open of this great application/tool, I’ve put two links one is a straight forward service that Don McAllister shows you how to ReScale an image and a overview/tutorial, get over the guy at the start and your away.

MyMac Podcast 631: Dodgy Slot Car Guy

mymac631
We promised or maybe threatened that we would get back to this story and so we have. On an otherwise slow week where talking about the Touchbar…AGAIN would just be boring, Gaz and Guy instead talk about UK Real Estate, dead people on Facebook, and used iPhones. Because we can

MyMac Podcast 630: Tech is HARD!

mymac630
Guy has a football game to go to (that American version of it anyway), so the GMen couldn’t find a way to match up the schedule. Fortunately Mark Chappell of the Essential Apple Podcast (http://www.essentialapple.com) jumped in to keep that UK/US mix happening and of course the show went completely off the rails AND went really long AND doesn’t have a 3rd section OR after show. Most of it is centered on a conversation in G+. How did that happen?

MyMac Podcast 537: The “Un” Interview

mymac537
So while Gaz is off spending time with his family, Karl Madden from the Mac & Forth Podcast was kind enough to fill in much to his later regret. They talk about their holidays,the Console Christmas hacks, and Kim Jong Un the Glorious Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or as we more commonly know it as…the bat&*#$ crazy Korea. Oh and Guy calls hackers bad names because he can.

Minbox.com – great free to use send unlimited size files (ok so Mail can do that now on Yosemite.. but I don’t like or use Mail) Copy.com (Dropbox type service that gives you a lot more space for free). The charge station I just got for review… awesome item http://bit.ly/1rFONWL. Skype – not new, not cool, but what would we do without it? My favourite podcast catchers Downcast on iOS and Podkicker on Android (both simple and elegant and do exactly what I want). Not much of a games guy but I just love Hillclimb racer… silly, no need to use the IAPs and has that “one more try” factor.

MyMac Podcast #506: Stupid App Tricks

mymac506
We have another guest this week as Allister Jenks joins in to talk about all kinds of stuff and all three go into what THEY think are stupid apps. Even bad Skype delay couldn’t deter them.

Guy’s App Pick: Star Wars TSG free! FREE! Ever want to make a title sequence like they have at the beginning of every Star Wars film? Ever think “That’s WAY too hard!” Well Star Wars TSG to the rescue. You can specify the size, number of frames per second, the studio name, the film name, and what you want said in the opening crawl.Then save it to an empty folder. Why? Because It makes a series of BMP image files that you then have to string together in QuickTime Player 7 with File -> Open Image sequence. The newer version of QuickTime won’t do it.
Gaz’s App Pick: Flow $4.99 or £2.99 UK or NZ$6.49. Flow is an FTP + SFTP client. With URL Copying, Droplets, a built-in editor, and QuickLook. Reviews are mixed but I’ve used it for a while and I like it, it may not be as good or have the features of other more sophisticated FTP clients, but I’m not sophisticated.
Allister’s App Pick: Ripit! From the little app factory $24.95. DVD ripping software

MyMac Podcast #500 – About frigging time

mm500
Sponsored by OWC
You’ve waited, and waited, and waited some more for the 500th podcast and it’s finally here! No app picks or much about the Macworld Expo this week or stuff from Google + or Twitter. Gaz and Guy talk a little about playing with organs (the musical kind) on iPads and then things get REALLY interesting when we get all the former hosts together into one virtual room. Naturally they talk a lot about the history of the podcast and a lot of it will make you laugh. Stand by for action!

AAAAND our audio issues continue. This time it’s an odd crackle coming from Gaz. Sigh, still a work in progress folks. This week we have a discussion about why what happened to Apple in the 90’s won’t happen again no matter how many parallel’s to it the press likes to talk about.

With Listener invite Gaz!‚ or Guy – Episode #307


Gaz is back from a work and holiday break from the podcast and got to see the Royal Air Force Red Arrows acrobatic flying team. Guy obviously confuses the US Navy Blue Angels and the US Air Force Thunderbirds and he’s really, really sorry about that. They gab a bit about the iPad on the road, the Magic TrackPad, and Gaz’s problems with his Mac Mini. We go on as well aboutiPhones and Verizon. We FINALLY get to the 2nd part of the Gaz and David Cohen interview (because we both like David so there!)
