The Mac & Forth Show

This week Alan, Steve, Dean and Karl share what some of them purchased over the Black Friday period. We get a bit distracted by audio setups, Karl attends Adobe Max London, Tim Cook appears to be having a bit of a glum time of late, Parents say iPads suck at teaching and Elon Musk says that he might go to Mars. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.

On this week’s show Alan, Steve and Karl are joined by GazMaz of the MyMac Podcast. We finally get to hear Steve’s thoughts on his new iPhone XR, along with Gaz who has also taken the plunge. Karl resisted buying the new iPad Pro for about 24 hours and discovered he knew more about the device that the Apple staff member who sold it to him. Reports emerge that Apple’s T2 chip may prove problematic to future repairs and Amazon and Apple appear to be making up. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.

This week Dean shares his thoughts on his new iPad Pro. Meanwhile Alan and Karl enjoy not maxing out their credit cards and are not in the least bit bothered they haven’t got new Apple items to play with…no honest…not one bit (sob). In additional news Apple is still making lots of money but not enough for Wall Street, plus there is a new rumour that one of Apple’s most popular pieces of hardware is about to get an update, but hopefully not with an extra 20% price tag.

On this Patreon episode I am joined by photographer Alex Fox to discuss some of the recent announcements from Adobe MAX and the possibilities of the new iPad Pro.

As Alex kindly joined me I thought I'd share this episode on our mainly weekly feed so everyone can have a listen.

Apple has unveiled their latest offerings and so Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl share their opinions regarding the new MacBook Air, the new Mac Mini and the new iPad Pro’s. Quite an exciting event but as always there are a few little catches that Apples brushed over but are there in the details. All this and iOS12.1 was released too. Oh, and some Apple Watches got bricked. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
