A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 176. Disaster in one form or another is inevitable especially when it comes to our computers. Technical and non-technical failures are a reality we eventually might have to face. Theft, natural disaster, damage, hard drive or component failure, no matter what failure will come, but it can be less stressful if you plan ahead. In this episode I discuss the potential for different failures with our Macs and how to prepare, manage, and get through them with less frustration.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 478. Ever since I took the Maccast on as my full time gig many have asked me about the experience, but I’ve never really discussed it. Brett Terpstra, just recently left his full time gig to work on his own projects so I thought it would be a perfect time to have him on and tackle this topic.

Maccast Members 166 – New Pages

Written by: Adam Christianson

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 166. – When Apple released the first major update to their iWork suite in over four year I like many of you applauded. During the announcement and demo at Apple’s iPad event the emphasis seems to be on brining feature parity between the Mac, iOS, and iCloud versions of the apps. We now know this was achieved in a big way by reducing the features that many relied on in the current versions of the apps. Because community reaction to the changes has been so strong I thought we should talk about the changes and reactions starting with Pages.
