A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 127. Doing a guest spot on the Mac Show (British Tech Network) the subject of Tim Cook came up and I realized that even though he’s been at the helm of Apple for a while, we really don’t know much about him. In this episode I take advantage of the great D10 interview he gave recently to try and get to know and understand Tim Cook a bit better.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 126. Every year I take a weekly vacation to go camping in Pismo Beach. Of course most people like to completely unplug on vacation, but being the geek that I am I like my tech and I take it with me. As I set about getting things ready I thought you might be interested in my packing list and why I take the things I do.
