Maccast Loop – Episode 032
In this episode we talk with special guest Ken Ray, Mac OS Ken and Technocracy Radio, about the current competition facing iTunes. Have services like Hulu.com and Amazon MP3 begun to take the shine off iTunes? We discuss the current criticisms security experts have made against Apple’s decision to change their approach to security and firewalling in Leopard. Finally we talk about which features in Leopard we find annoying as well as which ones we have uncovered as hidden gems in the new OS.
Thanks to my audio engineer and producer, Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User Podcast [iTunes]) and to all the listeners and participants who make this show possible.
From the answer to Chris about gaming options on the 11-07 podcast – instead of the usual tired drama about potential viruses and doom using a Windows machine for gaming, why not address the failure of Apple to provide even one decent option for graphics cards? That we can run Windows in Boot Camp on our $3500 Mac Pros but have no options for graphics cards other than an increasingly elderly 512MB ATI to run games is the real tragedy – not having to put anti-virus on and use basic common sense for security.
And why would you say you really hope he will stay away from a Windows machine and stay ‘all Mac’? He isn’t going to be doing much gaming on a Mac and the shame here is that Apple gets it enough to provide Boot Camp but we are still forced to shell out for a separate Windows PC if we want use our games with an adequate graphics card. Switch to Macs. Then back to PC’s. Come on already Apple.
