A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 375. In this end of November edition of the Maccast I decided to take a break from the hectic pre-holiday schedule and just hang out with fellow Mac Geek David Sparks (Mac Power Users). David and I sat down and talked about iCloud, specifically Documents in the Cloud, iTunes Music Match, and some of our favorite Apple accessories along with some of the current news highlights of the week. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it.
