Episode 26: An OS X a year keeps the doctor away?

We discuss the big news that Apple is releasing a new desktop OS this year.

Most of us did not expect to see a successor to OS 10.7 Lion for several years. To our surprise we’ll be seeing OS 10.8 Mountain Lion a year after Lion debut. The big news is that Apple is going to a yearly release cycle.

There are several features that we are excited about, most notably AirPlay streaming, which allows users to wirelessly stream their computer’s screen to their TVs.

We have concerns, however. Releasing an OS a year is a lot of work. Will more bugs creep into OS X? People are still complaining about Lion’s bugginess, and it usually takes several patches to get a new OS to be really stable.

We talk about this and much more.

Episode 7: Why don’t you go ahead and just write me a letter

Note: This is a repost of Episode 7 do to an issue with our podcast host.

We kick off talking about the #fuckyouwashington hash tag that Jeff Jarvis started.

Does the profanity bother us? No. Does Twitter censoring the hashtag  bother us? Yes.

We also delve deeper into Lion after using it for a week. We discuss AirDrop, the feature seemingly few are talking about. We go deeper into Lion’s new security features.

We also discuss how Patrick may get a new computer setup, and we spend a long time debating Macbook Airs vs. Macbook Pros.

And we had several other topics that we wanted to touch one, but this podcast aims to dig deep into topics. So that’s all we got to.

We’d also like to thank Alan Smodic for joining us during our Google+ Hangout before the show. Each week before the show we have a public Google+ Hangout where we go over what we’ll talk about on the show and try to get some early thoughts out. We’ll tweet out the link and share it on our Google+ accounts.

Episode 6: Lion roars, Borders snores

Could we kick off this week’s show by talking about anything other than OS X Lion? 10.7 is a worthy update, and we give some initial impressions and who will and won’t like some of the updates.

I wrote another love letter to Spotify today, while Jeremy tried to understand what I was talking about.

Then we get into books, libraries and our love for things that other people may not love as much. It’s a great show. I promise.
