Mac Roundtable 2008.06.10 Episode #42

Filed under: Podcast — take2 @ 4:59 am

Episode 42 of the Mac Roundtable is hosted by:
Victor Cajiao: The Typical Mac User
Katie Floyd: The MacCore
Dave Hamilton: The Mac Observer’s Mac Geek Gab
Allison Sheridan: TheNosillaCast
Tim Verpoorten: The Mac Reviewcast

We welcome Dave Hamilton to the Roundtable and discuss all the latest announcments from the World Wide Developer Conference. Dave gives us an on location report from WWDC.

We talk through how excited we are about the new shift to MobileMe from .mac, what it means to current and future iPhone users, as well as Windows users. Mostly we’re excited, hear what we’re not so excited about.

We’re all frustrated that the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch is STILL not open (we though June was the longest month ever, now it looks like July will beat it). And can you say Cut and Paste?

The new iPhone might just push Dave over the edge, and while the iPhone is now available in every country on earth and several other planets, it’s still not available where Tim lives.

And finally, Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) is on its way – not much from the user perspective (yet) but this IS the developer’s conference so it’s opening up some great opportunities for them.

Note: This podcast was posted to the feed ahead of our regular release date due to WWDC. Our plan is to return to our every two week release schedule with our next show releasing around June 30th.



  1. Apple has published information on SnowLeopard. There are 2 pages, 1 for OSX and 1 for OSX Server. Check out



    You’ll see that ZFS support is promised for the server edition.

  2. Snow Leopard server promises read and write support for ZFS, but it’s not clear if it will be able to *boot* from a ZFS volume. Plus, I’m guessing Time Machine won’t be possible on ZFS volumes, either, though for the Server environment that’s not nearly as much of an issue.
