The Mac & Forth Show (general)

Washington puts Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on the naughty step but fortunately, he has a cushion. Apple introduces the Project Red iPhone 8 and Karl does pretty well on his first play of Fortnite until he meets someone. Dean, Steve and Karl share their thoughts and opinions on all these topics, plus a few more.

We finally have a full panel again as Alan, Steve, Dean and Karl assemble to discuss the Apple Education event held earlier this week. Did Apple do enough to try and claim back some of the education market from Google and Microsoft or will their report card show them wanting? Also, iOS10.3 is released and brings some new functionality to our favourite devices.

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?
