Maccast Apple 10.16.2014 Event Live Chat

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Cool Stuff, Live Event

If you’d like to hang out and chat with other members of the Maccast community during today’s live streaming of Apple’s 10.16.2014 ‘It’s been way too long’ live event, we’ve set up a live chat here.

The official stream starts October 16th at 10 a.m. PDT, but we’ll be hanging out before hand (and likely after), so feel free to come join us.

The system is an IRC based chat and uses a Flash based embedded client (which may take some time to load), so it requires Flash to be installed. If you prefer, you can also connect using an IRC client of your choice to irc.geekshed.net port 6667. I use Colloquy on my Mac and they have an iOS version available. The channel(room) to use is #maccast.

Maccast Members 180 – iBeacons vs NFC

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Maccast Members, Podcast

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 180. With a bunch of the latest hype on Apple’s iPhone pointing at NFC and payments I’m wondering about a few things. Is Apple going to use NFC for their mobile payments like many think? Why wouldn’t Apple use a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solution and leverage iBeacons? I think one way to begin to answer that question may be to look at NFC vs. iBeacons in a retail capacity and that’s exactly what we’ll discuss in this episode.
