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 Apple ‘Let Us Loop You In’ Event – Live Chat

Written by: Adam Christianson

Apple 'Let Us Loop You In' 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 03.21.2016 ‘Let Us Loop You In’ live event, we’ve set up a live chat here.

The official stream starts March 21st at 10 a.m. PDT, but we’ll be hanging out before hand, 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 Textual 5 on my Mac and they have an iOS version available. The channel(room) to use is #themaccast.

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.
