The Mac & Forth Show

This week Alan Vickers joins Karl Madden as they take a break from the shows usual format. With Dean and Steve away they grab a cuppa and just discuss their thoughts and opinions on various Apple and tech-related issues. We also find out why Alan had returned his HomePod, but it’s not for the reasons you probably think.

It’s time to ‘ring’ in a new episode. Alan Vickers, Dean Murphy and Steven Leach join Karl Madden to make their ‘mark’ on the week’s Apple and tech related news. Will they be ‘staining’ the good name of their favourite technology brand or just polishing off another well-rounded podcast to a lovely finish?

Apple’s HomePod has finally arrived. Alan Vickers, Dean Murphy and Steven Leach have all had a chance to give it a listen. They share their thoughts and impressions with Karl Madden on how the new device performed. Will they convince Karl to go out and purchase one or will he be giving his credit card a rest, for once?

This week Apple has announced it’s latest earning and apparently they are still doing ok.  Alan Vickers, Dean Murphy and Steven Leach have ordered their HomePod’s leaving Karl Madden the odd one out…mind you, he’s been odd for a while now. A movie director is thinking of shooting all his future features on phones but unfortunately it probably requires talent too. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
