Mac Roundtable 2008.07.15 Episode #44

Filed under: Podcast — take2 @ 2:01 am

Episode 44 was hosted by:

Jonathan Cost: Mac Tips Daily
Adam Christianson The MacCast
Katie Floyd: The MacCore
Chuck Joiner: The MacJury

As you can imagine, this week’s show was all about the iPhone 3G, 2.0 FIrmware, and the rollout of MobileMe. We talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly in this episode. Katie picked up a 3G iPhone on launch day and talks about her mixed experiences with the device. Chuck also shares his AT&T horror story which actually prevented him from buying a new iPhone and Adam and Jonathan share their reasons for not wanting to upgrade just yet.

The gang also talks the less than stellar MobileMe rollout. As of the recording of this podcast there were still problems reported with people trying to log in and not all services are operational as advertised. Adam shares his experiences with the MobileMe push services and a problem he discovered if he tried to sync Exchange data at the same time. Some MobileMe services are still missing in action, including the iDisk email file sharing feature. 

Everyone seems to love the new iPhone 2.0 Firmware update and some of the new offerings available from the AppStore.Instead or our regular “Mac Picks” we decided to each share our favorite new “iPhone Pick.”

Adam- Midomi and Shazam – Tagging and identification of songs.
Jonathan – Jott – Turns voice memo into notes
Katie – OmniFocus – GTD task management that syncs with the Mac App
