A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 199. You have now unwittingly become a beta tester for the Maccast. I’m currently on vacation and wanted to take the opportunity to see if I could do a podcast entirely using only the iPad Pro. This is the trial episode. It’s a bit shorter than normal, but I explain the set up, why I’m doing this, and what you can expect for the next couple shows.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 575. A special episode of the Maccast. I got a chance to sit down and chat with Brian Roemmele. You may have caught his recent piece on Apple and VocalIQ on Medium. Brian is the creator of the Apple Pay discoverability app PayFinders and an “endless student” with an immense knowledge of voice and payment systems. I asked Brian about his thought on Apple’s recent Siri and Apple Pay announcements from WWDC and we talked about the future of voice, payment, and AI technologies in general.
