A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 735. A special episode of the Maccast. I sit down with friend and fellow podcaster Scott Johnson from the Frogpants Network to talk about his transition from a 2013 “trash can” Mac Pro to a 2018 Mac mini as his pro production system. Later we also discuss Apple’s Apple Arcade service and how it fit into Apple’s services and Apple’s place in the emerging games as a service market.
