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 778: Al Gore Rhythm

So there’s a new 16-inch MacBook Pro but the GMen completely ignore it because frankly, EVERYONE else was talking about it already. Instead they talk about the Goldman Sachs algorithm used to determine credit worthiness for the Apple Card. Sound boring? Is this your first time here?

MyMac Podcast 777: IS hardware still important

With all the changes in Apple over the last few years, their BIG growth hasn’t been with phones or computers, but with services and the bottom line is starting to reflect that. The GMen have a lengthy discussion about that and naturally resolve the entire issue…sure we did.

So Guy called me 5 mins before the podcast to say that he wanted to be known by another name today so as per his request I’d like to say hi to Karl. We discuss Apple Arcade and also what we think Apple might bring to another event, that is if they have one.

MyMac Podcast 751: No Direction Home

OK, listen carefully. There is NO after show in this MyMac Podcast. Seriously…none…zip…nada. We’re actually trying to make a concerted effort to get the show length down, so we naturally easily went over an hour. Maybe later this week we’ll put out a supplemental after show, but it’s not in this one. What is in this one is Guy’s new teeth, Gaz’s news snippets earlier than usual, and lot’s of other stuff. STOP looking at the end for the after show!

MyMac 744: Is it 744 or not Apple

Apples gives and then takes away…layers of confusion and it’s hard to say whether this was a good thing to take or a bad thing to give. Could be both. Meanwhile the GMen don’t dwell on it because of a short attention span and instead talk about ideology, Steve Jobs, the FBI, East Texas, and streaming game services. Oh and some kerfuffle about Facebook and privacy but hey, it’s Tuesday.

Guy’s Pick: Behringer’s UMC204HD is a really good audio interface and is apparently popular and that has been noticed by retailers as the price has jumped by 25% or more since I bought mine last year at $80 but which is now $130. It has midas-ish pre-amps that are very clean and efficient and some of the best at this price point. It’s one to consider if you’re looking for an audio interface, but look for bargains as the price seems to be fluctuating.

MyMac Podcast 743: Analysts…FIGHT!

The GMen are not overly fond of analysts and all their blather, so when two directly contradict each other, it cause for a case of the giggles…or sniffles in Guy’s case. Guy also keeps hearing about ARM-based Macs and Gaz keeps poking him for reactions!

Guy’s Pick: Going to use the next few shows to talk about my mobile podcasting set up as far as what I use. This time, it’s a tale of two mics, but the one I’ll recommend is the Sennheiser e835 dynamic mic. It’s about $100 from Amazon. It’s a dynamic mic (means unpowered) with a cardioid pickup (tightly focused for sound pickup) and a frequency response of 40-16KHz. Needs a lot of clean gain as most dynamic mics go but it’s great at background noise rejection.

Gaz’s Pick: Whats not to like VLC

MyMac Podcast 742: Guy is feeling better

No podcast last week because Guy was at death’s door! That’s IF “Death’s door” was sniffling, a little coughing, and making everyone around him miserable by complaining. Come to think of it, many did want to kill him before he felt better. This week though, they catch up on all the MyMac stuff, a little news, if Apple should buy Netflix, and laughing that Samsung wants to open exclusive Samsung stores.
