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.
