Mac Roundtable 2007.05.08 – #025

Filed under: Podcast — macroundtable @ 2:54 am

Episode 25 of the Mac Roundtable

This is the very first episode in our new rotating host format. Adam drew the short straw so he is up first. Adam is joined by Ken Ray (Mac OS Ken and Technocracy Radio) and Veronica Belmont (c|net Buzz Out Loud, c|net TV). On this edition of the Roundtable we discuss the state of Mac User Groups, are they a dying entity in the Internet age or is there a new generation of Mac users missing out on a great resource? Would, should, could Apple do a subscription service for iTunes. If so, what would that look like? WWDC is right around the corner, but Leopard isn’t. What will Steve jobs use to wow us at his keynote? All this, plus our cool Mac stuff picks. All and all, besides a couple technical glitches, another fine episode of the Mac Roundtable.

  1. I like the new format, but I’d rather see at least four people to call it a roundtable talkcast.

  2. Don’t care for the new format at all, the other format was far superior IMO with great interplay between the hosts. While I understand the necessity of the change, it really changes the dynamic of the show in a negative way.

    I’ll give it a couple of shows before I ponder whether to bail or not.

  4. Adam,

    Great show man, the new format may take a little bit to get use to but I’m sure you’ll work things out.

    I’d like to comment on Ken Ray’s response about “people don’t want to do as much with their computers anymore, the computers are replacing the television .. the radio .. the record player”

    Wouldn’t people need to learn how to replace their television, radio, and record player with the computer then? The computer is just changing is all, things may be getting smaller but that doesn’t mean people are getting smarter.

    I agree with Adam that the end user on end user meeting is a good thing and learning from the guy at apple may teach you a few things he learned out of a book or in a class; learning from real world experience just can’t beat that. I’d rather learn from one of the video people that has real world experience then the emo kid working at apple part time.

  5. Great show Adam! The new format will take a little time getting used to, but so far I think it’s great.

    Keep it up
