Apple Tech from the best

Great folks for talking tech with varied opinions that I don’t always agree with.

Still love it

The highlight of my podcast week. The three presenters work well together and the mix is close to perfect. Really enjoy the wide range of inputs and the way the three bounce off each other. Well worth the investment of time. Make sure you stick around until after the theme song finishes at the end for the after show section.

Chapter by chapter

I have listened intermittently for a few years and have come now to cherry-picking chapters. Lately I have been wondering if they're running out of material. I know the guys are professional developers but do you really need to drop five grand on a new Mac when the trackpad stops working it is getting to be a display of gratuitous affluence. And I have many misgivings about the Mac Pro saga nobody needs one of those.
