Recorded while driving and done by Guy, but not every day. So, two out of three which ain’t bad. Tech and personal talk with ”mostly true” stories thrown in for good measure
MyMac Podcast 964: Make it look like Windows
The MacOS is great, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it better. We’re going to look at some apps that have the potential to make your experience better…even if they didn’t come from Cupertino

MyMac Podcast 963: Buggy Bugs
There’s quite a few bugs in Apple’s regular software. Actually more than a few and the GMen are going to talk about some of them this week. Not all of them because that might make the show just a tad too long, but enough to take the smirk of superiority off some Apple user’s faces.
MyMac Podcast 962: Lack of Vision
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so, pre-orders for Apple’s Vision Pro started on Friday January 19th. Are you ready for all the hype and whining well too bad, it’s likely going to be all you hear in tech circles for the next month or two. We promise that THIS show will be the last you hear about it from us! Or maybe we’ll likely be gushing and or complaining about it too. Also, Guy says a dumb. See if you can guess where it happens.
MyMac Podcast 961: Hoping to see clearly
Guy hasn’t made a secret of his issues with having lost his right eye. While he’s made light of it, in every way it sucks. It puts him and others like him in a weird situation. They have a clearly defined affliction, but there’s little to no help for them. While it’s sure that people with worse sight issues would gladly trade places with those with mostly good vision in one eye, there’s more assistive technology for the blind or those with almost no vision than there there is for people with monocular vision. Everyone is different and their needs are very different, but can’t there be some help for them too?
MyMac Podcast 960: We don’t need no stinkin exploits
While we may not want them, we’ve had them in a long journey that no one saw coming except for the exploiters themselves. They even went to extraordinary lengths to hide what they were doing from everyone. If ever there was a time to patch ALL your Apple devices, it would be now.
MyMac Podcast 959: Sorting out Photos
Does Photos drive you crazy with all of it’s sometimes VERY annoying quirks? Do the GMen have any answers? We would like to think we do, but how does that usually end up?
