A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 653. A special episode of the Maccast where I’m joined by David Sparks (MacSparky) and we look back at the iPhone and how it changed technology and our lives. David and I discuss key milestones in the development of the iPhone and iOS and even have a laugh at the kinds of apps we installed in the “old” days. David also lets us in on the details of his new book, the iPhone Field Guide and shares his knowledge on creating and publishing with iBooks Author and ePub 3.
