It's time for episode 67, and we're going to mix it up a bit this week. Mike and Charles, both of whom are former residents of Orlando, start off the show talking about the mass shooting there, and (despite very different political leanings) come up with a reasonable and rational set of proposals that would dramatically cut down on such tragedies (with proof) while preserving protected liberties, and thus no rational person would disagree. Oops, we can already see the flaw in that plan from here.
Happy birthday to us -- The MacNN Podcast turned one this week, and so -- when you listen to this episode -- picture us both wearing jaunty party hats. Back down to the usual two-man rowboat, this week MacNN Editor Charles Martin and Managing Editor Mike Wuerthele talk about a few hot topics, and by that we don't mean the emo superstore down at the mall. Naturally, our recent site redesign -- the first in a whopping eight years -- is our first focus.
Neither William Gallagher, nor Malcolm Owen, would describe themselves as corporate types -- or even really what you might call intense businessmen. Consequently, they're not sure that you should listen very closely to their news or observations about big business this week, but there is also Billy Mays, there are dead cats -- and there is Steve Jobs.
Say your favourite day is Thursday when there's always a new episode of One More Thing, the MacNN podcast and what you really look forward to is its regular Thingies of the Week section. If that's the case then, um, we're feeling some pressure here but promise to make it more exciting. We also promise to make it easier for you to go straight to that section because OMT, as the cool kids call it, is now produced with the aid of Chapters 1.0 for OS X which inserts a kind of bookmark.
This is where the news went. While you were eating turkey, holidaying with family or simply not looking, there was news. Malcolm Owen was here and this week fills in William Gallagher on everything he missed. That includes the new Apple holiday advert, the potential new Apple moves with Lightning cables and OLED displays plus Christmas Thingies of the Week.
It's now October, and all the big Apple gifts we're going to get for Xmas this year are (probably) behind us. There's just one more to open: OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Should you jump to the latest and greatest? There are reasons to do so, and there are reasons to wait, depending on your situation. MacNN Editor Charles Martin and Managing Editor Mike Wuerthele discuss the pros and cons, talk about the real differences between the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, argue whether 16GB can work on an iOS device for storage without much pain, and more.
Sources have told MacNN that Apple is going to build a space station. Okay, no sources have told us this other than the voices in our head, but we're thinking to the future! Not to the future of Apple, but to the future of journalists who at some point will do a Google search on the first news of this space station and that's when we win. We're playing the long game.
It's Monday, and that means time for another episode of The MacNN Podcast! This week, as usual, we cover a range of topics from around the Apple and general tech world, and we throw in a cruel experiment in Apple Watch deprivation, mercilessly conducted on one of our own staffers. We also mourn the passing of Electronista, note the release of MS Office 2016 and the OS X and iOS public betas, and more. Show notes after the jump.
You've already got a podcast player on your iPhone, maybe you don't need another. Yet you may well want another, or you may not yet be aware of your desire to change from Apple's barebones offering to something that has more features or is just nicer. While we're not going to knock Apple's Podcast app which does the job well enough, Castaway has its advantages.
