A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 044. I tried out ABC’s new interactive “My Generation” iPad app. The app was developed along with the ratings folks over at Nielsen to add interactivity to ABC’s new show by the same name. I’ll give you my thoughts on leveraging the power of iOS to bring more convergence to our entertainment and our iDevices.
