The Mac & Forth Show

This week on our second festive show for this festive period I am joined by our former News RoundUp Reported and my old podcasting buddy, Missy! We pretty much ignore any news this week and instead discuss general technology, Christmas, social media and fake news…as well as a few spoilers for Rogue One, you have been warned.

This week it looks as if I'm all alone for Christmas until the door bell chimes and three guests from the past come and join me for this festive show. 

We take the opportunity and look back over the last twelve months of Apple products and share our thoughts and ratings on each item.

This week I’m joined by Alex G. Fox (Instagram) as we take a diversion from the usual discussion of the weeks Apple and tech related news and instead focus on one of our favourite applications, PLEX

We discuss what it is and what it can do to transform your media from a collection of boring files to a rich media library accessible to you from anywhere on the globe.

The second show is two days. Yep, we are like a bad rash, we keep coming back. On this show I am joined once again by Dr. Richard Harkness as we delve in to the new iPhone 7 and 7Plus that Apple announced last week. Is it a big disappointment like many of the Tech Press were expecting or did Apple do it again?

The Mac & Forth Show is back...kinda. Yes, after a little break I have decided to re-instate the Mac & Forth Show..again. However, this time it is in a slightly different format. From now on it shall be a one man show.

While the rest of the crew and I will continue to appear on the Essential Apple Show I shall have free reign here to do my own little thing and delve into the stories and aspects of Apple and technology that I find interesting.

Being a one man show I would greatly appreciate any feedback and input my listeners would wish to submit, be it emails, social media posting or audio files. However, as I say on the podcast, I reserve the right to ignore any negativity as there is currently far to much of that in the world at large.

I Hope to develop the shows format over the coming months and have a number of sections I wish to include.

So please feel free to share your thoughts with me and offer your opinions on any of the items in each show.

As a last quick note if you would be so kind to write a new or updated review on iTunes it would be great appreciated and you will get a shout out on the show.

Thanks for reading and now lets get back to some Mac & Forth...

I really would appreciate it if you could take a few moments and submit a review in iTunes. I won’t pester you for cash or ply you with adverts, but a little review is all I ask…go on, you know you want to really.

As the guys and I are no longer really able to produce the Mac & Forth Show we have all moved over to the Essential Apple Podcast hosted by Mark Chappell.

The format is very familiar if you have been a M&F listener so please head on over to iTunes and subscribe to our new podcast.

This is a copy of our 4th episode, just so you can get a taste and hopefully decide to follow us over.

Thank you for all the support you have given Mac & Forth over the last few years and I hope you join us at our new home.

Thanks.
