A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 364. With all the speculation about the future of Apple and longevity of the products going forward without Steve at the helm, I wanted to take a different perspective. Can we gain a deeper perspective on Apple and its future by looking inward and to its past? I asked simple question to 11 Apple journalists, podcasters, creative professionals, and fans. “Why are you an Apple User?”

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 094. Between Google’s announcement that it wanted to acquire Motorola Mobility and HP calling it quits on tablets and the PC business my geek brain is swimming. To sort it all out and vent some more on my frustrations with the state of the US patent system I decided to invite Ken Ray from Mac OS Ken over for a chat.
