Maccast Members 201 – As American As…

Written by: Adam Christianson

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 199. You have now unwittingly become a beta tester for the Maccast. I’m currently on vacation and wanted to take the opportunity to see if I could do a podcast entirely using only the iPad Pro. This is the trial episode. It’s a bit shorter than normal, but I explain the set up, why I’m doing this, and what you can expect for the next couple shows.

Maccast Members

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.

Written by: Adam Christianson

Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 197. How does a failed run for the presidential election in 1800, the killing of Alexander Hamilton, a plot to start a war with Mexico, a secret letter, and a trial for treason lead it’s way to Apple? We look at how history has an odd way of winding it’s way into our future in this episode.

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.

Maccast Members 194 – MAS is a Mess

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Maccast Members, Podcast

Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 194. Why are more “A” tier indie devs leaving Apple’s Mac App Store (MAS)? This past week another developer, Bohemian Coding, announced they are leaving. This is just another in what seems like a growing list of top level Mac Developers who have tried the MAS and ultimately decided it’s not working. I said long ago that I wasn’t very keen on an App Store coming to that Mac, but when it arrived it did bring some nice conveniences. Still now almost five years later it seems like many of the same issues and concerns are still with us. What’s going on? What’s causing this exodus and what, if anything, should we or Apple be doing about it.
