MyMac Podcast 701: April Fools


So the countdowns are finally over…or are they? 99 shows to go to Episode 800 and 84 to go to the 500th GMen MyMac Podcast! Nevermind. Guy and Gaz talk about last week’s Apple Education event which other than a crayon and new iPad was a bit of a snoozer.

MyMac Podcast 699: Just One Away


Holy moly, just ONE show away from 700! Actually since you’re reading/listening to the podcast, it is zero shows away. Or something, math is hard. Gaz not here this week, so my son Peter who is the owner of my former Mac Pro to talk about…stuff. We chat about the crazy issues we had with the three week odyssey of getting the Mac Pro working, the upcoming Apple event, and scammy/scummy ink jet printers and the companies who make them.

MyMac Podcast 697: We Love-Hate Apple because…Reasons


Which pretty much sums up how most people feel about Apple but they don’t have a podcasts and we do! We’re doing a little experiment by also recording video (that will be out later) that hopefully will eventually entice people to sign up to our Patreon account or make them leave us in droves. If you leave though you’ll miss stuff on wearables, finances, Buffett (Warren not Jimmy) and our continuing hate affair with analysts. So yeah, don’t miss that.

MyMac Podcast 695: 15 equals 51


Is this some kind of crazy new math? Have the GMen lost their minds? Well, yes but not because of this. Apple makes a disproportional amount of profit as compared to their marketshare, one bad unicode can spoil the bunch girl (Jackson 5 reference if you didn’t know), the HomePod leaves a ring around the collar, and Apple’s wearable market by itself could be a Fortune 300 company. All this and their usual silliness.

MyMac Podcast 694: Defining Definitions


The GMen talk about 5G. A subject neither knows much about, but that’s never stopped them before and this time is no different. Gaz is excited about Apple’s HomePod but isn’t exactly sure why and Guy is mad at his dental insurance company but knows EXACTLY why.Oh and at some random point they talk about the last Super Bowl for some reason.

MyMac Podcast 693: The Adam and Eve Show


No nudity is involved (thank God) but there may be a snake or two. Meanwhile the GMen briefly go over Apple’s quarterly results and then tear apart a writer for a certain website that they think is an idiot. And when the GMen think someone ELSE is stupid, that’s really saying something.

Guy’s Pick: A good friend asked to get some info and songs off two old iPods (not DRMed) and this program did the trick AN it’s free! Syncios from syncs.com. I just needed it to get content off old devices, but if you want to use it to manage or do device to device data transfers those cost extra.

MyMac Podcast 692: That AI is CRAZY


You can call me Al, but there’s no point as we’re talking about A.I. Artificial Intelligence, not Aladdin or Chevy Chase from a popular song from many years ago. But Wait! There’s MORE! Chromebooks, HomePods, OS Updates that Guy STILL can’t do, and Apple Buses being attacked.

MyMac Podcast 691: Call Micronesia


What does the Empress Wu Zetian, leap years, and Beretta shotguns have in common? Guy’s wife leaves him…again, but he has a big ass heavy backpack to keep him company, Gaz’s iMac seems slow, Apple will pay more in tax in a single day that no single person ever will probably pay in their lifetimes. Also is Apple falling behind and Sir Jonny speaks!

So all that oversea’s money is coming home, well we thinks it’s all going home, and whats going to happen to all that dosh.

We quite like this news, but it does make us wonder on a wider scale if Apple are just dropping behind when it comes to Car Kit and HomeKit and Siri, other companies seem to be taking a lead, and some of those leads could be quite large making it hard for Apple to then get a foot back in the door.

MyMac Podcast 690: Mistakes were made


Weird, but the title seems redundant. Micronesia and their Chinese food delivery industry is briefly discussed, another macOS password problem, CES wants Apple…BAD, the US Congress doesn’t understand tech (shocker), and a speaker says that the 4 biggest US companies were founded by immigrants or their children…like every US company…ever.

Guy’s Pick: With the Mac and iPhone losing ports as quickly as some politicians are losing their minds, one company has been supplying an audio solution for Macs that just need more ins and outs. Behringer’s UCA222 is a USB solution with two RCA left and right channel in ports and two out ports.

MyMac Podcast 688: Maybe Good, Maybe bad


Last show for 2017 and the GMen knocked it out of the park! Granted it was a pretty small park and slightly run down, but it was knocked out! LOT’S of MyMac articles because they didn’t do it last week and they had some special guests to help with that. Then like every other podcast they talked about Apple and something about batteries. Lastly they give ALL their resolutions for the 2018! Or they would have if they had thought of it at the time which they didn’t!

Gaz’s Pick/Tip: Parallels Tool Box, lots of great tools, but this was 9.99 a year it’s gone up to 15.99 still great value, just hope the increase isn’t the start of an ever increasing cost.

MyMac Podcast 687: A GMenistmas Miracle

Didn’t want to leave you guys in the lurch for a show so just did a quick one describing our holiday plans mostly. Gaz’s sound much better than Guy’s since he’s cooking for his family (poor family) but does have an iPhone 8+ to play with. All of us at the MyMac Podcast and MyMac website wish all of you a wonderful holiday season!

MyMac Podcast 686: iMac Protastic


There’s a new iMac and it’s a pro model. It frigging SHOULD be with a starting price of $5000. Guy doesn’t like the YoLuke webcam, Gaz DOES like YouTube and neither are in the Christmas spirit until they started talking about Visigoths. Because NOTHING says happy holiday like barbarians at the gates.

MyMac Podcast 683: Bent it like Beckham


Yeah YEAH! Famous well known footballer references that made lots of money vs the GMen who…do a podcast. It’s OK though because the reference actually has nothing what so ever to do with Beckham but bendable Apple keyboards. Also countries want more money from Apple and instead of changing the laws that made it possible for them to move their money out legally, they’re going to add MORE laws because that’s always worked in the past. Lastly, Google is Swiftly changing Fuchsia to some other color…or something

Journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness, through neighbouring villages, ancient woodlands, and long-abandoned ruins. Along the way you’ll rescue runaway llamas, grind rooftops, leap over terrifying chasms and outwit the mountain elders – all while braving the ever changing elements and passage of time upon the mountain.

MyMac Podcast 682: Visitor Parking is Allowed


A real off the rails show even more so than usual (which is saying something). The GMen can’t even get out of MyMac articles without something going horribly wrong, which is a source of great entertainment. Meanwhile, Apple is pre-loading High Sierra without asking (BAD FORM!), ISP’s still want to sell you TV instead of data (BAD FORM!), and Apple’s new Apple Park Visitor Center is now open with coffee, light snacks, and all the Apple gear your credit car can handle (BAD…well actually we’re not sure).

MyMac Podcast 681: When i have a problem


Ever notice how hard it is to describe a problem and solution over audio? Guy never has and attempts to explain his current setup using stone knives and bearskins…or a 2 mix minus setup with a Mac Pro and Mac Mini. Still confused? That will continue even after the explanation. The GMen talk about how the iPhone doesn’t like the letter “i”, tax havens, why the iPhone 8 isn’t selling as well as others think it should, and so much more.
