A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 204. This time we have a topic inspired by a question that came up on the Maccast Member Slack channel. What is the best way to clean up the storage on my iOS devices? Our iPhones and iPads can build up a lot of cruft over the years. Old apps, documents & data, photos, videos, music, messages, emails and attachments. They use up our flash storage and over time can clutter our devices. On our Macs it’s not too hard to find and clean these items, but how do you do that on iOS. This episode offers tips and tricks for finding and removing old data and files on your iOS devices to help you free up valuable storage space.

We’ll also talk about some new and exciting methods you can use to make sure you’re better protected.

Maccast Members 201 – As American As…

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Maccast Members, Podcast

Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 201. Recently in the news there has been discussion about the idea of Apple bringing more of it’s manufacturing back to the United States. Many items being written and talked about seem to be narrowly focused in on a single data point while ignoring what Apple has said their position is and while not considering the more nuanced issues. In this episode I try to separate the facts from opinions and also point out some of the things Apple has said publicly on the topic.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 198. Apple is known for many innovative and revolutionary products. Say Apple and many will say iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Macintosh. These are iconic things, but not every product Apple has ever made is as well known. Today I look at some Apple products that you might know of, but maybe a few others that you’ve never heard of.

Maccast Members 196 – Security Glossary

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Maccast Members, Podcast

Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 196. Whenever a tech story comes up that involves security there are often a lot of industry specific terms thrown around. When that happens sites don’t often take the time to explain phrases like “backdoor” or “encryption”. I thought it might be helpful to have just a basic background in terms you might hear when stories like this come up. Our friend George Starcher joins me to go over this basic security glossary.

Maccast Members 195 – Adaptation

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Maccast Members, Podcast

Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 195. I’ve been thinking lately about adaptation. Not the 2002 movie starring Nicholas Cage, but the need or ability to change in response to the imposed conditions. There are many reasons I’ve been pondering this and I thought it could make a good starting point for us to have a conversation, so that’s what I’m going to do in this episode.
