Links: Making eBooks with Pages. Guy’s App Pick : Pages for the Mac. The application not the iCloud version. James’s Pick: Sim City BuildIt for iOS – Loving it. Free with in app purchases People’s Pick: Serenak Assassin.

The sound is good, the time is right, but it’s still the same GMen. Messages somehow confuses my son Peter AND Dave Hamilton for Apple. Yeah, I don’t get it either. The GMen are back to using Google Docs because Apple’s Pages and iCloud is completely hosed and they have a discussion about the many missteps lately from everyone’s (or maybe a few people anyway) favorite electronics company.
Links: Guy’s App Pick: Time Machine. For probably the first time ever, a file got lost for me. It was a Canon MTS MPEG file that I tried to convert using a different program. Not only did it NOT convert, it made the file disappear. Time Machine went back in time (without those pesky morlocks) and put it back. Gaz’s App Pick: ANTI PICK DON’T USE ICLOUD IT’S BIG FAIL 🙁 OK that was because I’m upset I recently bought a pinball game for the iPad called PINBALL HD costs £1.49 and there are further in app purchases for more boards, this gives you 3 open boards but does give you access to a restricted board where you’ll need to buy the inApp purchase to access full functionality
We get caught up on Guy’s adventure buying a car in Florida and how Gaz gets his iTunes for cheaps! The GMen go over some of what they thought was great from WWDC and then realize they forgot to mention a whole bunch of other things that they SAID they’ll get back to but probably won’t. Gaz’s language skills takes a horrible beating with Swahili and so much more!
Links: Guy’s App Pick: Flat Out 2 by Virtual Programming .99 cents Gaz’s App Pick: Pages for the win, created some templates for Invoice creation. Pages is so much easier (in my opinion) than Word on the Mac to do this sort of stuff. People’s Pick: Erick Diaz likes the new Weather Channel app, newly refreshed to iOS 7 goodness JUST in time for iOS 8

It’s Guy’s birthday and he’ll podcast if he wants to, but Skype seems to think it’s a bad idea. Yep another Skype sucks and we hate it kind of show. We still had fun though making fun of Microsoft and wondering just how long has it been since most of the Mac line had been updated. Gaz gives a great tip and to the surprise of no one Guy hadn’t heard of it before. Most be his old age kicking in.
