A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 215. A slightly different type of show today as my Mac Mini that I use to produce the show is in the shop. I tell the tale of the untimely death of my Mac Mini’s hard drive and we take a look at Apple’s new Apple TV Take 2 software. I go over my thoughts and impressions on the delayed and much anticipated new features.

    I’m not too happy that Apple doesn’t recognize the hard disk firmware problem making certain drives crash. I’m glad you had at least a Time Machine backup, but not everyone will have that and will lose all their data when the 2.5 inch drive crashes. How many tears must be shed by distraught customers before Apple fixes this problem?

    Thank you so much for mentioning the Certified Training Alliance! I’ve been thinking of getting Microsoft certification and Apple certification as an alternative route to going to college. I just wish the CTA had a location in upstate NY.

    Hey, I’m still sore that Jobs promotes Apple TV as not needing a computer. How does Apple TV communicate with iTunes? EVDO? G3, dial up? Don’t tell me he expects people to supply DSL/cable. Why would anybody pay for connectivity with out pc and would one configure? Stevie, you got some splainin to do.

    It seems that apple were more concerned with improving features rather than fixing crashes and problems in there programs. I mean whenever problems occur they just tend to create something new rather than fixes problems of there consumers.
