Sorry there is no show this week.

Due to an unfortunate clash of prior commitments Mark and I couldn’t generate a workable slot to record… so unfortunately there is no show this week.
We should be back to normal next week when we will be joined by Vic Hudson of the Pragmatic, Bubblesort, and Pocket Sized Podcasts.

Essential Apple Podcast 11: So 6 Months Later after becoming a developer…

So you release an app and it goes to the top of the app store charts world wide.  You leave your job to become a full time developer and what happens next. This happened to Dean Murphy the developer of the content blocking app Crystal.

Essential Apple Podcast 008

Essential Apple Podcast 8: GazMaz was our first choice… honestly.

With one of our regulars working out the best placement for a lawn chair and the other riding around southern France looking for property we put together a list for guests to come on the show and ended up calling GazMaz from the MyMac show. We discuss the week after WWDC and a whole lot of other tangents as well.

Essential Apple Podcast 7: WWDC Special “Rock Paper Scissors Coffee Tea Beer”

No one could complain that WWDC wasn’t packed to the rafters with new features. With so much to discuss instead of our usual episode we’ve gone ahead and done a 2 parter Barry, Karl and myself discuss the points of WWDC whilst going decidedly off topic in places.  Spectrum vs C64 and alternative uses for a hot tub amongst others.

Essential Apple Podcast 6 : Mark’s 1Revelation.

We were going to go WWDC prediction bonkers but just before going live Apple announced the subscription plans for the App store. So we talk about that, Mark Gurman, press expectations, our expectations, worth a chirp and some interesting listener comments.

After yet another password breach where some lucky soul thought they bagged themselves a Amazon Prime subscription, it was finally time to put 1Password through it’s paces. The end result.. Just get it because it turns out I’m not the only fan of it on the show.

For the musical types this might make sense but for those like me who pick up and fiddle about with things, its confusing. Here’s how you increase the recording time in Garageband.

EP58 – Sideshow Bob Sums Up Batman vs Superman Nicely.

Plainly put Batman Vs Superman sucked. In all ways and levels it’s just a bad film but at least Affleck isn’t to blame more Warner studios where it’s obvious the film was interfered with. Did we expect anything else after Warner’s botched attempt at a console game.

It comes to something when you’re watching DareDevil on Netflix and the fight scenes there kick BvS ass.
