A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 315. They’re back. My friends Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User) and Ken Ray (Mac OS Ken) agreed to meet me yet again inside the digital depths of Skype to converse on anything Apple that crossed our minds. This is unrehearsed, unplanned, and unscripted Mac geekery at it’s best. Just hit record and let the bits fly.
