MyMac Podcast 849: Missed it by THAT much

According to some, Apple and Google’s market dominance in Smartphone operating systems is stifling competition. While some of their points are valid, they also are ignoring the consequences of opening the ecosystems to everyone.

Apple has their Spring Loaded event and all kinds of goodies have been pushed out, though will the GMen bite at some of them? Maybe or maybe not.

MyMac Podcast 845: Guy Guy where for art thou Guy

So they’ve only gone and done it, Siri let the cat out of the bag and announced before the official announcement that there is going to be an Apple event next week, now granted someone had to ask the question, but hey if you get enough monkeys typing then they’ll produce Shakespeare, and no I’ve never believed that is true, but there are a lot of monkeys asking Siri questions!

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 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 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 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 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.

Guy’s Pick: Free professional level video editor? Whaaa? Olive video editor.

Gaz’s Pick: Luminar3 on the MAC currently 28.99 yes there is a version 4 coming out but this is a great app that can integrate with photos, you can buy a package which includes version 4 when it comes out but I think that version 3 is a cracker and worth the money if you want a good tool to mess with your photos on your Mac.
