MyMac Podcast 773: Another Event!

So Guy called me 5 mins before the podcast to say that he wanted to be known by another name today so as per his request I’d like to say hi to Karl. We discuss Apple Arcade and also what we think Apple might bring to another event, that is if they have one.

Guy is back from his techmergency trip to help his brother. He spent more trying to leave however than he did actually IN Florida and his weird adventure is all laid out here. Gaz is happy Guy is back because that means he doesn’t have to do a solo show. Our listeners are happy because…because…well, they MUST be happy about something.

MyMac Podcast 751: No Direction Home

OK, listen carefully. There is NO after show in this MyMac Podcast. Seriously…none…zip…nada. We’re actually trying to make a concerted effort to get the show length down, so we naturally easily went over an hour. Maybe later this week we’ll put out a supplemental after show, but it’s not in this one. What is in this one is Guy’s new teeth, Gaz’s news snippets earlier than usual, and lot’s of other stuff. STOP looking at the end for the after show!

MyMac Podcast 747: Plane Updates

Guy is finally back from his east coast extravaganza where he and Tracey spent a significant amount of time not feeling well. Gaz finally has a music snippet for Gaz’s news snippets, and they discuss all the new Apple hardware. It’s enough to make you feel like a Funky Poodle.

MyMac 744: Is it 744 or not Apple

Apples gives and then takes away…layers of confusion and it’s hard to say whether this was a good thing to take or a bad thing to give. Could be both. Meanwhile the GMen don’t dwell on it because of a short attention span and instead talk about ideology, Steve Jobs, the FBI, East Texas, and streaming game services. Oh and some kerfuffle about Facebook and privacy but hey, it’s Tuesday.

Guy’s Pick: Behringer’s UMC204HD is a really good audio interface and is apparently popular and that has been noticed by retailers as the price has jumped by 25% or more since I bought mine last year at $80 but which is now $130. It has midas-ish pre-amps that are very clean and efficient and some of the best at this price point. It’s one to consider if you’re looking for an audio interface, but look for bargains as the price seems to be fluctuating.

MyMac Podcast 743: Analysts…FIGHT!

The GMen are not overly fond of analysts and all their blather, so when two directly contradict each other, it cause for a case of the giggles…or sniffles in Guy’s case. Guy also keeps hearing about ARM-based Macs and Gaz keeps poking him for reactions!

Guy’s Pick: Going to use the next few shows to talk about my mobile podcasting set up as far as what I use. This time, it’s a tale of two mics, but the one I’ll recommend is the Sennheiser e835 dynamic mic. It’s about $100 from Amazon. It’s a dynamic mic (means unpowered) with a cardioid pickup (tightly focused for sound pickup) and a frequency response of 40-16KHz. Needs a lot of clean gain as most dynamic mics go but it’s great at background noise rejection.

Gaz’s Pick: Whats not to like VLC

MyMac Podcast 742: Guy is feeling better

No podcast last week because Guy was at death’s door! That’s IF “Death’s door” was sniffling, a little coughing, and making everyone around him miserable by complaining. Come to think of it, many did want to kill him before he felt better. This week though, they catch up on all the MyMac stuff, a little news, if Apple should buy Netflix, and laughing that Samsung wants to open exclusive Samsung stores.

MyMac Podcast 741: TechQuake

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.
