A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. In this special episode of the Maccast I sit down with Avram Miller. Avram is a tech industry pioneer probably best known for his time spent at Intel where he helped cofound their venture capital arm. Through his work Avarm has been influential in shaping the face of many of the technologies we use and continue to develop today. Most notably Avarm Miller played a key role in the development of the cable modem and other broadband technologies. In 1984, while president of Franklin Computer Corporation, Avram and his team developed an Apple clone and challenged Steve Jobs & Co. over their right to produce and sell the product and bring it to market. Recently Avarm became a Mac switcher and I had the privilege to sit down with him and chat about his experiences, history, and this latest chapter in his tech life.
