A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 249. A special episode where we take a look back at Apple in 2008 and then try to predict what they will do at their last Macworld and in 2009. I am joined by my friends Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User), Ken Ray (Mac OS Ken), and Don McAllister (Screencasts Online) for what I felt was an informative and very enjoyable show. Happy Holidays and have a great and wonderful New Year!

    Having a bad day Adam. This podcast didn’t download this morning, and now my Powerbook crapped out on 10.5.6 upgrade. My hardrive image doesn’t show up on Finder. G4 Tower had no problems with upgrade. Gonna look for an Apple link to fix. Keeping my G5 and MacBook Pro far from any upgrade. Enjoying the show!

    A juicy smorgasboard of Mac rumours, rants, reviews and reminiscing….loved it. I just into the 60min mark and I just had to add my two cents to the Mini. I love the mini and I think it is an excellent product in the arsenal of Apple. I totally agree with Don that it does kind of compete with the ?TV and I think it would totally amazing if there were a convergence of the two…

    Unfortunately, yes, maybe the mini hasn’t taken off like the iMac (two of which I own and love) but maybe we need to see the sales numbers on it. I don’t think it needs a screen, it is an excellent full featured media center or small office web/file server. It is also a perfect office machine replacement machine for the average office worker that lives in MS Office and uses only XP and here’s the point: never does any upgrades! I’ve been a tech support professional for years and get so frustrated by the palettes of big, crappy, plastic Dells and HP (with all of their cables) that come into every two to three years that have to get deployed where a Mini would more than serve the same purpose with more features, longer life and is more robust.

    Thanks for the show!!!
