MyMac Podcast 844: Locked in

Everyone seems very upset with Apple for how hard it is to switch between iOS and Android if you decide to leave the platform. Is it all that hard and what are some of the costs involved? Also, we try to not curse on the MyMac Podcast, but sometimes we &#$@% it up.

MyMac Podcast 843: April Tools!

No March event and the crop of “we don’t actually know anything, but refuse to shut up about it” websites and “journalists” seemed to maybe have learned a lesson about announcing Apple events and are staying quiet. I’m sure this will be the ways things are going forward and we can expect thoughtful analysis of Apple news and events AFTER they’ve happened and not before…APRIL FOOLS! Speaking of fools, Gaz asks Guy some serious questions and got semi-serious answers! Left us stunned too.

MyMac Podcast 842: Stupid Rumours

Don’t you just LOVE how analysts and tech guessers spend SO much time in trying to tell us exactly what Apple is coming out with next thereby spoiling the surprise from everyone else. Oh and the added benefit of doing Apple’s detective work for them to fire leakers when something is reported that only one or two suspects were told about? Well there’s an apparent Apple event next month and rumours are flying! So let’s talk about that….which verifies and justifies the time spent on stupid rumour stories to get podcasters to talk about it, however it doesn’t count for us since we’re doing it IRONICALLY!

MyMac Podcast 841: Must it be so Complicated

Life was so much simpler back in the day. You’d grab a microphone, turn on something to record yourself, and you were good to go. Now it’s all about social media, multi-channel DAWs recording into a livestream while monitoring chat and trying to keep yourself from getting strikes that could collapse the whole house of cards. OH, and still trying to be interesting. Or maybe that’s just Guy.

MyMac Podcast 840: Stuff

Five MyMac Podcasts ago was our 550th one. It was mentioned just before and here we are mentioning it after but not exactly on the date. Why? There may be one of two reasons. Either we thought it would be funnier this way during our daily MyMac production meetings or…we forgot after talking about it the week before. Also there’s some stuff we’d like to see, go away, or come back. Sometimes all three at once.

MyMac Podcast 839: MMMMM..iMac

Other than rumours, there’s been no recent talk from Apple about the next round of M-series computers, but a lot of people (analysts…ugh) have been talking about the iMac as possibly the next Mac to get the MMMMMM put in it.

MyMac Podcast 837: Sizzle with the Steak

Loving that free subscription to AppleTV+ that you have with your purchase of an Apple thingy? Or is it part of your Apple One subscription? OR maybe you’re leeching it off from someone else along with Netflix. Well however you’ve gotten it, is there enough content for you to keep you coming back? No? There might be based on Apple’s trailers just released for their 2021 lineup.

MyMac Podcast 836: Rearranging Stuff

Will there be a March Apple Event? What might be announced? Since we broke the ice with sheer speculation last week with all the talk about the fictional Apple Car that remains to be seen, why not shove our noses deeper into rumours since everything seems to be a bit rehash-y at the moment.

MyMac Podcast 835: Crashing Logic

Apple’s car business which doesn’t exist in public other than CarPlay, 14 million blogs and podcasts, and analysts saying it does, took another step toward not being a fantasy which it still is, by poaching Porsche execs and denying everything by saying nothing at all about it. Which means it’s DEFINITELY going to happen…maybe…or maybe not. And you can take that to the bank because you got the straight scoop from the GMen!

MyMac Podcast 834: Privacy Fail

Wow! Just ONE show away from our 550th! Quite an achievement if 550 of anything meant…well…anything. We bring it up here because if we did it on the actual 550th show it wouldn’t be nearly as funny. Also sorry about no show last week, you can totally blame Guy and his second COVID shot though as per usual he denies all responsibility.

MyMac Podcast 833: Virtual Distractions

When you have a conference that’s usually in Las Vegas, one of the least distraction-free cities anywhere in the world, is it still as much fun if it goes virtual? Some think yes as you can get right down to business, others say NOOOOOOO, I want my lights and glimmer! Also the GMen talk more about the NFL and make a few game prediction (some were wrong).

MyMac Podcast 832: Blinded me with SCIENCE

These days it’s easy to believe that when you have a problem you can resolve it by throwing a little bit of Science-Fu at it. However sometime when that doesn’t work, what do you do? Easy, throw some other kind of science at it instead. Because when it comes to science, one solution may not work in all situations.

MyMac Podcast 831: Neurally Speaking

For the first show of the year, the Men get very silly with weird digital masks that you can view if you watch the show over on YouTube. Also, It’s the start of a brand new year but the same old GMen so don’t believe for one instant that 2020 doesn’t still have some punishment for you…in fact, you should probably STILL be mad at 2010 which is when we started.

MyMac Podcast 830: Windows on M1

If there is still one thing missing from the M1 Revolution, it’s Windows on the M1 for those that still need to run it. Can it be done in a way that makes sense? Also the GMen use Zoom to record this time. Better than Skype? Might have been if they knew what they doing.
