MyMac Podcast 797: Surprise! It’s an iPhone

Alright not a real BIG surprise that it was released, but the specs kinda were. Has the same processor as its iPhone 11 big brother and at a cost that nearly everyone can afford. Even Guy “might” have jumped in, but you’ll need to listen to this extra-long show to find out. The after show is rated a little more PG-13-ish than usual too.

MyMac Podcast 796: Somebody DO something

Just what that somebody is supposed to do isn’t directly addressed by the GMen, but it’s about tech news and not being stuck inside forever. Considering they had nothing to talk about 45 minutes before recording, this is one of the longest shows they’ve done in awhile, and the main subject is about should companies invest in dumb terminals to give to people stuck working from home?

MyMac Podcast 795: iPhone 9-SE-2020-something or other

As we all start going a little nuts over being stuck inside, take comfort in the fact that this is what it’s like for the GMen…24/7. Lots of rumors about a new low cost iPhone and WILL come out last week! Except it didn’t.

MyMac 792: Shut-in

Stuck at home with nothing to do? Well, take some advice from the GMen…or at least be entertained for an hour or so while NOT taking their advice! A surprising amount of news that’s mostly about just one topic and of course everything you’ve come to expect or dread from the GMen!

MyMac Podcast 787: Damaging Viruses

Apple has a specular 1st quarter of 2020 JUST I time for the Coronavirus to thrown in major disruptions to everyone’s tech timelines. So those new phones or tablets you want to buy? Might have to wait a bit, but that’s hardly the important part. The GMen (even though we joke a lot) wish a speedy recovery to everyone affected and hope that this will all be over soon. Guy is also tired and needs ear creme.

Is the iMac still relevant in a day when most people are choosing laptops and using them as a desktop? Would a more powerful Mac mini be something a lot of people might be interested in? Did Guy change his audio set up…again? A mixed bag to be sure in this MyMac Podcast with the GMen.

MyMac Podcast 785: Somehow THIS is 500

After talking about it for FAR too long, Gaz and Guy finally reach show 500…which is this episode numbered 785. In this pinnacle episode, they announce the winners of the bumper contest, go over a little bit of news, discuss fun things to do with their wives, and find out that you have to be VERY careful when talking about what Apple shares may hit.

MyMac Podcast Christmas Special

So this not a regular MyMac Podcast with all the stuff we normally do, but there are some familiar bits. Little warning, the language is saltier than normal, but nothing you couldn’t say on network TV. They talk about the follies of following Guy’s tech advice (who knew?), and visitors vaguely feline come a calling. Guy talks about losing his cat Shadow and Christmas prep for the GMen. Greg from NC sends in a few bumpers and they weirdly talk about the NFL.

MyMac Podcast 782: The MyMac and Forth Show

So we’re in the middle of doing the show when this weird vaguely looking like a UK telephone box but not enough to get sued over suddenly appears! Out pops Karl and Dean from the Mac & Forth podcast! It wasn’t set up or contrived at all! We talk about the events over the last year and generally just have a good time. What did you think we were going to do?

MyMac Podcast 781: Hard Reset

A longer show than we’ve done in awhile. If you like nonsensical meanderings about ultra-wideband technology that won’t be adequately explained and an extra long after show with pub singers, then you’ll LOVE this week’s episode! If you don’t…well you won’t enjoy it as much.

MyMac Podcast 780: Jony is Going..Going..GONE

Sir Jony has left the building, and Apple’s leadership page on their website and there’s no coming back from that…probably. Thanksgiving was wonderful for Guy and Gaz is getting all his walks in. The big question, is it really necessary to constantly upgrade your Apple stuff each year? Can you let it go few a few cycles?
