A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 166. – When Apple released the first major update to their iWork suite in over four year I like many of you applauded. During the announcement and demo at Apple’s iPad event the emphasis seems to be on brining feature parity between the Mac, iOS, and iCloud versions of the apps. We now know this was achieved in a big way by reducing the features that many relied on in the current versions of the apps. Because community reaction to the changes has been so strong I thought we should talk about the changes and reactions starting with Pages.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 466. Apple released it’s iPad Air today and I figured I would be doing my usual episode how the release went and talking with new iPad Air owners about how they’re liking the new device. But a funny thing happened on the way to the Apple Store. First Apple changed up how they handled this launch, at least in the US, from an online ordering perspective. So, we’ll talk about that. Second, the radical redesign in the iPad Airs form fact seems to be raising more questions for a lot of you on if you should upgrade and if so which is the right model for you. So we’ll talk to a few folks about how they are dealing with the “What iPad should I buy” question.
