A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 187. I’ve been thinking about the Apple Watch. Maybe too much. The reviews are out and I’ve read them all. I’ve also tried on and played with the Apple Watch now and have my own observations, comments, and questions. So, it is worth all the hype and obsession and who is this thing for?

Maccast Apple 03.09.2015 Event Live Chat

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: 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 March 9th 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.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 186. A home improvement project combined with our recent conversation on Home Automation with Kelly Guimont inspires me to take the leap into home automation. I talk about why and how I made that decision and if I think it was the right thing to do.
