Not Another Mac Podcast - Episode 153 (Mark Rants For An Entire Episode)

On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Mark is joined by Antonio Rosario, Kevin Aller, and Peter Bird to discuss everything from the Apple Watch announcement, to the new Macbook with that puny FaceTime camera, and the demise of Aperture. 

This episode also features the World's Shortest Reviewcast by John Nemerovski. John reviews the VisionTek 3 Meter 4K UHD High Speed HDMI to HDMI Pivot Cable (900750) and VisionTek 12 Piece Toolkit for Macs (900671).

 

More information regarding discussed topics:

  • Aperture Is Dead: Mark gets the ball rolling by hijacking Antonio's issues with Apple killing off Aperture and they both question if Apple is still supportive of their professional consumers. Mark talks about Apple being behind the curve when it comes to managing photographs and Antonio believes that Apple simply hasn't been able to master Digital Asset Management. But, iTunes can manage your media library quite adequately. Can't it? You will just have to listen to find out what Antonio and the rest of the panel think. We also question if Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the better option to consider in the wake of Aperture's demise. That allows us to consider if third party applications provide better longevity than Apple's internal applications. 
  • Apple's Planned Obsolescence: Mark doesn't believe that we can rely on Apple to deliver applications or services that will be around for years to come. Would you agree? Mark asks which bonehead at Apple decided it was a good idea to remove optical media support from iPhoto while Antonio is increasingly becoming interested in a hackintosh system because all new systems need to be pre configured at the time of purchase thereby limiting productivity and expansion options. Do you think a hackintosh is the way to go? Perhaps it is as Mark believes that Apple is too focused on planned obsolescence. Are you also tired of the constant upgrade path? In relation to the planned obsolescence, Mark and Kevin question why Apple seem to be reducing the performance of the Mac Mini and iMac, considering the 2012 edition entry-level models are substantially more powerful than those offered today. 
  • Is Apple Obsessed With Design?: Peter asks if Apple is too obsessed with design and thereby introducing equipment that lacks functionality. Well, that gets Mark on a RANT about the new gold MacBook and the silly all-in-one USB-C connector. Mark questions where it fits in to the current Mac lineup. Do you think it fits? Mark also believes this new Macbook is merely a concept product, released to market, and will not appeal to many users. Mark feels Apple should perfect what they have, before redesigning although Kevin thinks that the new Macbook is the much rumoured iPad Pro and believes this new MacBook will replace the MacBook Air within 18 months. In any case, Antonio feels that the key to new Macbook is battery life, but Mark argues that battery life in real-world usage is never all-day, or as advertised. Do you get all-day battery usage from your portable gear? Plus, what is it with that puny 480p FaceTime camera on the new MacBook? It is yet again further proof that Apple is giving us old technology in new glossy cases. Perhaps this proves that design is more important. What do you think? Certainly Kevin believes this may be the case as he wonders why Apple is so focused on the new butterfly and back lit keyboard features. Kevin also questions why operating systems are updated on a yearly basis if only show off the new design of icons. Of course, Mark believes the yearly update is just another reason to ensure planned obsolescence. 
  • Apple Has Too Many Product Lines: Antonio feels that Apple has gone back to the 1990s with too many product lines and Peter feels that someone just needs to say no to Tim Cook. Do you find there are too many options, or not enough? 
  • Apple Watch: Mark argues the accessory, now has an accessory. Mark doesn't believe the battery life will work adequately for many people, but Kevin wants to see a Mophie Juice Pack for the Apple Watch. Mark and Kevin feel the Apple Watch looks too thick, especially when compared against other smart watch options. Mark also worries about the longevity of the Apple Watch and the subsequent value in the long term. With longevity in mind, Mark questions what will happen if/when the battery goes bad, but Peter clarifies that Apple are going to be able to replace the batteries when the need arises. Whilst that is good news, the new forced Apple Watch app, for iPhone, has the entire panel complaining and Mark wonders why Apple didn't consider kinetic changing.
  • Research Kit: This is the only topic that Mark doesn't RANT about. Yay! In-fact, this is likely the greatest announcement from Apple in years. 
  • AppleTV: HBO is great, but it doesn't apply to anyone outside the USA. Mark also doesn't believe there needs to be an updated AppleTV and provides some interesting thoughts relating to this. Take a listen to find out what Mark's thoughts are. Did you know that you can pair third party universal remotes to the AppleTV? Mark, Antonio, and Kevin didn't but Peter clarifies that you can actually use universal remotes with the AppleTV.

Not Another Mac Podcast - Episode 152 (The 'Cloud' Is A Bit Of A Mess)

On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Mark is joined by Peter Bird and Scott Willsey to discuss everything from security to the usability of multiple displays. We also discuss if Beta software is appropriate for use by the general public and Mark describes what life is like without the Internet.

This episode also features the World's Shortest Reviewcast by John Nemerovski. John reviews the Catalyst case for iPhone 6, detailing why it may live up to its claim of being the most protective case in the world. For more on the Catalyst range of products, please visit www.catalystlifestyle.com.

More information regarding discussed topics:

  • Internet Hell: Mark describes his Internet woes and how his 4G LTE connection can easily surpass the speed of ADSL2+, even when the cellular connection only has a single bar via the iPhone Personal Hotspot feature. You will even get a little history of Internet connectivity options. How quaint! 
  • Security Issues: Does the mainstream media scare users, or inform them? We look at the options, the considerations, and the importance of security across not only the Mac, but iOS devices and Windows PCs. Scott bashes Mac security, or does he mean bash functionality? Regardless, there is no perfect system when it comes to security. Mark also questions if Apple should be providing additional information about security at the time of setup, or during usage. Should users still jailbreak? We consider the options although Scott believes it should be avoided for security reasons. Jailbreakers, would you agree?      
  • YouTube App for Kids: Mark wonders if the app is aimed for an audience that is too young. Although, Scott offers a different opinion. Mark and Scott detail their experiences as parents and the methods they use when allowing kids to access to YouTube and other Internet content. We'd love to hear from parents who have also been challenged with controlling Internet content. What was your process? 
  • Beta Software: Should the average user be exposed to, and able to use, Beta software? Mark, Peter, and Scott all weigh in on the positives and negatives of using Beta software and services. We discuss backwards compatibility and the rebuilding of applications to offer supposed improvements. Is there a better option? We also discuss the dumbing down of apps to match their iOS counterparts and we wonder if Apple is doing too many things at once, subsequently leaving some applications, services, and hardware without adequate support, even at the Beta level. We also discuss why Apple leaves legacy software installed on the Mac, when the supposed 'latest and greatest' version is released. Is this an acknowledgement of errors in judgement?
  • Backup and Cloud Storage: Mark reminds everyone to undertake backups and never rely on the 'cloud' as the sole backup or file storage option. Scott also reminds us that there are some cases where the content in the cloud is not stored on your local hard drive and therefore you must ensure you maintain complete control over your data. We also talk about some options for local backup and Mark proposes someone needs to build a database for USB sticks as he can never find the file he is after. Although, Mark just wants his iPhone to show up as a storage device on his Mac so he can take his most crucial documents with him. Scott talks about the mess that is associated with iCloud and the complications of how these cloud services truly work for end users. Mark also questions why there is no iCloud Drive, but Scott offers a different opinion. Do you agree with Scott or Mark?
  • Office vs. iWork: Mark talks about the problems with iWork and why he consistently stays with his Office 365 subscription. Which service do you use?
  • Planned Obsolescence: Mark discusses his dislike for planned obsolescence on not only Apple products, but all electronics. Does this irritate you as well?
  • Multiple Displays: Mark feels the MacBook Air display is too cramped, especially when undertaking research. Peter offers an interesting way to use every display you could possibly own although we're not sure if it is a great solution. What do you think? Do you run multiple displays? Does it help with your productivity? 
  • Apps referenced include: Workflow, YouTube App for Kids

Not Another Mac Podcast - Episode 151 (The Siri.Fail Experiment)

On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Mark is joined by Peter Bird and Scott Willsey to discuss everything from iOS workflows to Siri.fail, a new domain that was registered as we recorded. We asked Siri to find it, but you will just have to listen to find out how Siri performed.

This episode also features the World's Shortest Reviewcast by John Nemerovski. John reviews the Cord Cruncher, a tangle free solution for charging and data synchronization. John also reviews Audio Hijack 3.

More information regarding discussed topics:

  • iOS Productivity: Scott and Kevin Allder suggest, via Twitter, that Mark should look at the iPad again. Scott certainly feels iOS 8 is more productive than previous incarnations and Mark downloads Workflow: Powerful Automation Made Simple, on the show, as Scott details the ease at how to compile workflows. 
  • Pay Once & Play: It's about time, but is it too late? The selection chosen for this area of the App Store is remarkably sparse despite the generally high quality of included apps. Mark worries it will only silence the critics and Apple will not update it, similar to iTunes LP. Scott suggests there are probably very few apps that don’t have in-app purchases, hence the lack of featured apps. What are your thoughts? 
  • Service Expectations: Are we really getting the services that Apple, and others, promise? Mark complains that many services are still locked to specific regions thereby preventing users from legally accessing content. Mark strongly believes that living in such a connected world should eliminate the need for these restrictions. Mark also discusses his recent testing of music streaming services. 
  • Mac Forever: Mark discusses why he believes the Mac will never fail. An interesting opinion, would you agree? Scott has a different view. Would you agree with him? Listen and let us know!
  • Siri: Scott decides to register the domain siri.fail and Peter tries his very best to provide additional evidence that Siri does, in-fact, fail. 
  • Renting Software vs Buying Software: We discuss buying software versus renting software. We look at the pros and cons of various systems and also take a look at the support that companies are giving to those who choose to rent software. 
  • Apps referenced include: Crossy Road - Endless Arcade Hopper, Lego Star Wars, Workflow: Powerful Automation Made Simple, Transmit for iOS, Feedly - Your RSS News Reader, Evernote, CanOpener.

Not Another Mac Podcast - Episode 150 (Mark Is Wrong About Everything)

On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Mark is joined by Elisa Pacelli, Allister Jenks, and David Duvall to discuss everything from Mark being wrong about everything to the upcoming Apple Watch. 

This episode also features the World's Shortest Reviewcast by John Nemerovski. John reviews the AL13 v3 AeroSpace Aluminum iPhone Bumper

More information regarding discussed topics:

  • Mark is wrong about everything: Allister explains why Mark is wrong about the design aspects of the Mac and iOS. We then proceed to the wider topic of operating system updates and if they are truly necessary. We ask if there is a perfect operating system and Mark believes iOS needs a redesign as the Mac is now a mature operating system. Would you agree? 
  • Transparent effects on the Mac: We help Elisa reduce the transparency effect on the Mac and Allister describes why it isn’t real transparency, but a hack. Interesting discussing for the true geeks.
  • iOSfication and Apple's lackluster new Macs: We talk about updating for updates sake and the further iOSification of the Mac. The Mac Mini is discussed, along with the iMac. We continue to ask why Apple keeps taking features away? 
  • iTunes: What does work and what doesn’t work? Alister believes that things will always change and there is nothing we can do about it. What do you think? Would you agree? Although, Mark believes that users should just have more customisation options. Elisa discusses songs skipping in iTunes while Mark describes his own unique Frankenstein skipping music files. It is a funny story! Mark also talks about working around the iTunes Match limitations. 
  • Connectivity and Backup: Mark complains about the USB 2.0 connection for iOS devices. It is just too slow and Mark has a conspiracy theory relating to no USB 3, or Thunderbolt to Lightning connectivity for iOS. Mark describes no iOS backup option, for Apple’s Time Capsule, to be the missing link.  
  • Apple TV: Mark talks about Apple TV and catchup TV offerings from an Australian perspective.
  • It Doesn't Just Work: David talks about a lack of confidence in connected technologies. Does it just work? Or is that old adage no longer relevant to the modern-day Apple?
  • Apple Watch: Mark and Allister want one. We discuss what we are looking forward to while David and Elisa provide views on why the Apple Watch doesn’t suit them.  
  • Apps referenced include: OOKLA Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test and Stan.

Not Another Mac Podcast - Episode 149 (The Fisher-Price Toy Rant)

On this episode of Not Another Mac Podcast, Mark is joined by Antonio Rosario and Peter Bird to discuss everything from the lack of support by third party apps for Passbook, to storage solutions for any type of user and the Fisher-Price inspired layout that is iOS. 

This episode also features the World's Shortest Reviewcast by John Nemerovski. John reviews the EXOvault iPhone 6 handmade case. EXOVAULT also has a complete line of hand made cases for iPhone 5, 5S, 6, and 6PLUS.

More information regarding discussed topics:

  • Passbook: What is it used for? Why should we use it? Who would use it? Could Apple Pay and Passbook become integrated. We answer these questions, or atleast attempt to.
  • Photograph Management: Photo Stream and the trials and tribulations associated with it. Antonio discussses how the Carousel by Dropbox app is a perfect replacement, that is free, for Photo Stream. 
  • Digital Storage Solutions For Sharing Content: Physical storage versus cloud storage and distribution options for photographers. Antonio discusses PhotoShelter as an option for the digital distribution of photographs. Does the upload speed of our Internet connection limit the use of services such as PhotoShelter? What is the longevity of physical media? Can it be relied on? We take a look at all these questions and offer our personal advice and opinions with Mark suggesting that you should use as many formats as you can get your hands on. 
  • What We Want From Apple In 2015, Without Rumours: 
    • Apple TV is in desperate need of a redesigned interface. We offer our opinions on what could be done differently, starting with removing the Fisher-Price look and correcting the horrible remote control. Could the 'old-school' click wheel be a solution? 
    • iTunes also needs a rebuild, and rethought, from the ground up. It has become a Frankenstein of legacy technology and playlists are a complete nightmare to sync across devices. 
    • Antonio believes that Apple should slow down on releasing new versions of the operating system and release a 'Snow Leopard' build that will address the refinement of the existing operating system and applications. Peter gets irate over the Trash can icon while Antonio can't find files in Spotlight. 
    • Mark needs true multitasking on iOS, by allowing user customisation. Mark also wants Apple to play better with others. 
  • Apple Watch: What do we think it is useful for. Mark really doesn't want to send love hearts to others. We dicuss possible improvements to lifestyle and productivity.
