In this week's Free App Friday, we take a moment to salute the smallest pillar of the iTunes arsenal--the podcast. While an incredibly simple concept, the freedom of the Internet has assured that there's a show pretty much on every subject possible. Some shows inform us about the world at large, while some teach you how to build that shelf you've been putting off for quite some time, while others exist simply to entertain. If you're looking to jump in, there's simply no better choice than WTF with Marc Maron.
Apple's new Podcasts app is a testament to the tremendous evolution the medium has undergone since its humble iPod beginnings. Having long outgrown its iTunes tab, it was inevitable that Apple would develop a standalone app to mark the podcast's maturation into a legitimate form of entertainment. Expectedly, the universal app looks great, though it's not quite as functional or bug-free as desired.
With MobileMe’s date with death drawing closer near, we've been getting a lot of questions about whether or not your iWeb podcasts and websites hosted on MobileMe will disappear into thin air on June 30. Since it's better to be safe than sorry, we'll show you how to move over all of your data to a dedicated hosting site.
Hilarity ensues as Robbie, Nic, Ray and Flo spend a majority of the podcast lamenting today's totally unenthusiastic iTunes announcement. Plus, Nic prophesizes and we answer your Twitter and Facebook questions.
In this episode of the Mac|Live podcast, the gang discusses what might be announced at this Wednesday's Apple event, and whether or not we'll be seeing a refresh to the MacBook Air. Robbie and Flo also discuss how Mac gamers have helped increase Steam's market share in the gaming sphere, and they remind all of the readers and listeners to join us for Frag the Editor Fridays.
Associate Online Editor Flo Ion hosts the podcast with slight uncertainty as Online Editor Robbie Baldwin watches from the sidelines. No matter--the staff still managed to thoroughly discuss melting iPhones in Asia (not really), China's own free bumper program, and the recently filed Apple patent for a touchscreen Mac.
Plus, we answer your hard-hitting Facebook and Twitter questions, and stayed tuned at the end for outtakes!
This week's podcast follows four of the Mac|Life editors as they ride the rainbow wave of Apple's awesome hardware announcements. Flo, Susie, Ray and Nic all chime in--sometimes at the same time--about what excites them the most about the new Mac Pro, iMac, 27" Cinema Display, Magic Trackpad, and Apple Battery Charger. Also, there's plenty of talk about Starcraft 2, released today for Macs and PCs everywhere.
Robbie is out and Flo is hosting this week's show, along with Susie and Ray. Join the editors as they discuss the evil threats of Spyware looming over Macs everywhere, as well as Google's turn away from Windows machines and Adobe's new Digital Publishing Platform and what it could do for publishing on the iPad.
