MyMac Podcast 953: Scary Wrong

Remember just a few weeks ago when we thought there wouldn’t be another Mac event this year? Or did we actually say the exact opposite? Hard to say, as the overblown reverb meant most people couldn’t stand listening to it.

MyMac Podcast 950: So We’re Back!

Sorry about that, but we were away for a bit taking care of all kinds of unrelated to being GMen things, but here we are. With MacOS Sonoma now released, there are certain things to remember and do BEFORE jumping to that new operating system. Chief among them is making sure you have a complete backup you can revert to in case things go horribly wrong! Will they? Probably not. CAN they? Oh most certainly.

MyMac Podcast 935: iMac is 25

Who would have thought that one of the oldest model names in computers is now 25 years old. It’s amazing when you think about where it started and what its become. It went from being an all-in-one plug and play computer to a…well maybe things haven’t changed all that much after all.

Cloud computing like it or not is here to stay. The public and now computer companies are making this a fact by changing many of the ways they create computers these days and Apple isn’t immune to it either. So what is it good for and how deep should you go into it?

MyMac Podcast 919: MyMac-Mus Eve

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the podcast, not a creature was stirring but you know it won’t last. Gaz and Guy have family coming from afar. Through wind, snow, and rain, but quite comfy in their car. You heard them exclaim as the present wrappings flew, “You didn’t get Apple Care? You fool you fool!”

MyMac Podcast 918: 13th day of Christmas

Two weeks away and the GMen are getting into the spirit of the season! That season being “Why the heck is it so cold and windy?” Also, it’s looking more and more like Apple is going to be forced in the EU to allow 3rd party app stores and other alternative means to procuring and installing iOS/iPadOS apps outside of Apple’s own app store.

MyMac Podcast 916: Did you tweet you twit?

There seems to be little common ground around Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter. It’s either the greatest thing EVAH (freedom fries for murica) or a house burning down around an oven with a chicken left in at 300 celsius. What actually is happening is mostly up for debate and your opinion is just as valid as someone else. Even if those two opinions are 180 degrees out of sync.
