MyMac Podcast 902: Who’s NeXT?

While Tim Cook (Mr. Excitement) has been the CEO of Apple for over 10 years, he’s now getting closer to mid-60s and is probably looking past where he’ll be running things. His legacy is pretty firmly set and there’s not much more at this point he could do, so who will be next in line to run Apple? We’ll look at some of the likely candidates in the second section.

MyMac Podcast 897: WWD SO Wrong

We made a lot of predictions for the keynote of WWDC, and I’m proud to say that we got everything right…which is a lie. Other than the date, not too much was correct.

MyMac Podcast 895: iMadOS

One of the GMen has been predicting for a long time that what the iPad needs isn’t half-hearted multitasking that requires more moves than a rugby player in the /line-out, but a full fledged floating window experience. Kinda like every operating systems on any large screen currently uses. Maybe…JUST maybe that’s coming true in the next version of iPadOS.

MyMac Podcast 894: At your Services…es

So, is this the world’s longest segue? Having Karl Madden from the Mac and Forth show on last week was fun, but it did break up our discussion about Apple devices. Somehow I think we’ll live through the experience, but we say that optimistically every time Karl is on the show. However we only have to wrong once for tragedy to strike.

MyMac Podcast 892: At your Services

It seems redundant these days to report on Apple’s finances when you could record it once with a “Apple made record revenue and profits this year blah blah blah” and call it a day. There’s a nugget there though while not new, continues to astound the once hardware-heavy tech giant and that’s Services. This quarter, that’s where nearly 25% of all revenue Apple generated came from.

MyMac Podcast 889: Speed Kills

Oh just relax internet censors, we’re talking about computer speed for gosh sakes. The great debate over whether Apple’s benchmarks comparing an M1 Ultra Mac Studio to a similar Intel-based computer has fans on both sides dragging up all the old arguments of Mac vs PC. Many are saying at best Apple exaggerated and many others claiming Apple out and out lied. The GMen say, stop getting your underwear in such a twist. Maybe going forward for most people it just won’t matter. Or maybe that time has already come.

MyMac Podcast 888: You want MORE?!?

When it comes to upgradability, Apple’s devices going back well into the Intel years have not exactly been the best examples. Even the simple things like RAM and storage have been missing from most of Apple’s lineup for many years. Looking forward into the M-processor years, this isn’t likely to change much and there are some very good, if not extremely frustrating reasons why.

MyMac Podcast 887: Rwong!

Man that Apple event was really something wasn’t it? Too bad nearly everything Guy predicted was utterly and almost to the point incorrect. Fortunately according to the many worlds theory as proposed by the famed Polish theoretical physicist Wojciech H. Zurek, in one universe as defined by Quantum Mechanics not only was Guy correct about every prediction, but he did so while eating chocolate ice cream and dancing the Fandango surrounded by former Playboy Bunnies. So he’ll take that as a win…in some other universe

MyMac Podcast 886: mmmmMMMM2

It’s always exciting when an Apple event is right around the corner and while we don’t do “rumors” per se, we do like to speculate on what Apple goodies might be just around the corner. It’s less immediate than a traffic accident and more trustworthy than…well…idiot analysts popping off about the specs of the 2024 iPhone 15. Also we know when we’re wrong and admit to it as compare to idiot analysts

It’s our 600th-ish podcast and MAN do we have some exciting stuff for you! If by exciting, we mean really more or less a regular show. While this is a significant milestone for us, it pales in comparison to what’s going on in the Ukraine as we record. We aren’t going to bring a lot of coverage as we aren’t about general news and politics, but for what it’s worth, we dedicate this episode to brave people of the Ukraine and wish them well. There’s also an extra long after show with a live call in from Guy’s son…um…Guy

Sorry about that bit of bad language at the beginning of the show last week.

Also Who DOESN’T love having their their iPhone turned into a spying device on themselves? Am I right?

MyMac Podcast 873: AppleTV or AppleTV

Why are the GMen wasting time recording a podcast on Black Friday when we or AppleTV could be getting deals of a LIFETIME!?! Because it’s the same boring ho-hum nonsense from every year. “Special one day only deals” that seem to last a week on stuff we don’t really want anyway. Instead we’ll talk about the differences between the AppleTV, AppleTV, PLUS AppleTV!
