A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 176. Disaster in one form or another is inevitable especially when it comes to our computers. Technical and non-technical failures are a reality we eventually might have to face. Theft, natural disaster, damage, hard drive or component failure, no matter what failure will come, but it can be less stressful if you plan ahead. In this episode I discuss the potential for different failures with our Macs and how to prepare, manage, and get through them with less frustration.

Maccast Members 175 – Distorting Reality

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 175. Reality distortion, if I were able to have a superpower this might be one I want. Most often we hear it associated with Apple and specifically Steve Jobs, but I believe the world has had many reality distorters. I also think that reality distortion might be the wrong word or at least the word is being applied incorrectly. I explore reality distortion. How does it work, what is it, and why do so few have it?

Maccast Members 174 – I am Fanboi hear my lore

Written by: Adam Christianson

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 174. – The news of Greg Christie’s pending retirement from Apple sparked off a debate this past week. 9to5 Mac broke the story and very quickly other stories surfaced to refute some of the “facts” from 9to5′s sources. So, that got me thinking about how Apple’s history gets shaped, formed, and molded. How much is fact and how much is pure storytelling? Does it matter? Ken Ray (Mac OS Ken & Mission Log) joins me to talk about the history, fact, fiction, lore, and legends we create about Apple.
