This show’s panel members include:

John F. Braun The Mac Observer’s Mac Geek Gab (Twitter)
Bart Busschots Bart’s Blog (Twitter)

The episode starts with a revisiting of trackballs and why they are a good thing, morphs into a discussion of who uses automation as part of their productivity environments and why (or why not), where to go to get scripts, and why you need to be alert when you do. An unexpected turn into Unix and the Terminal occurs before the stage is cleared for the big topic: Snow Leopard. The panel discusses their upgrade strategies, concerns and developer responsiveness and responsibility for having their software compatible with Apple’s new big cat. The show wraps up with the ever-popular product picks, and a little squabbling over who gets to choose one particular application.
