    Hey Adam,

    The GUI is still in late alpha and is now approaching beta. And there is now quite a controversy about the GUI involving Erica Sadun and the individual who released the early alpha build. This hack is very dangerous, if messed up you get a bricked iPhone. The hack works by flashing the firmware on the radios inside the iPhone. However, you mess up you can restore from what I’ve heard.

    For syncing between multiple macs: try this:

    Store your iTunes library on an external usb drive. Hook that drive into an airport extreme, then set it up so you can access that drive via WAN, so set that up and then you can access that drive from the finder connect to server then enter that IP and creddentials mount that drive and option click on any mac and select that iTunes library on the external drive and your golden hope this helps

    Great episode, Adam. And the links in the show notes are very useful. I will keep them in my Inbox Folder (in the Dock) for future reference. Thanks.

    Once again, a good show. I kept notes :)

    Another great show, thanks. I do have one suggestion though that will make my life a lot easier. I listen to your show mostly offline, and often hear interesting stuff that I want to check out later using the shownotes. Of course, I always forget about checking the notes so I miss much of what I want to remember or look up. Maybe I have early Alzheimers..

    Anyway: What I would find very useful is to have a separate RSS feed with just the shownotes. That way the notes will appear automatically in netnewswire, so that I will at least always see the shownotes of the current past few shows and can look up things that I heard. And I’ll know when a new show is there.

    Hope this helps, and thanks again for keeping both the quality and quantity so high. 200 shows, wow..

    You mentioned putting a link for the video review of the “Notebook” program. I have looked and looked and cannot find it.

    Sounds like an interesting program, but even the video at the Circus Ponies site seems to end abruptly and not continue on after its introduction.

    I found a list of quite a few docklings here:
