The Mac & Forth Show

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and we go over the weeks Apple related news. Apple releases updates across the board and we look ahead to what iOS 10.3 has in store for us, including a new file system. Developers will finally be able to reply to reviews in the App Store. Possible modular add-ons are coming to the Apple Watch. AudioBooks deal comes to and end and Star Trek fans can finally enjoy Amazon’s Echo….OK Computer.

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, just a little review is all I ask…go on, you know you want to really, don't ya?

This week we have a full house as Barry Gentleman, Matt Barton, Ric McCorriston and Dean Murphy (Creator of Crystal AdBlock) all drop by. Among other things we discuss the iPhone turning 10 years old, plus the iPhone OS we might have got and how the phone changed mobile communications, as well as it’s continuing influence today.

Production Note: Apologies if the audio is a bit under par this episode. We had some technical issues with Ric and Matt both loosing connectivity mid show. Due to how I record the show I wasn't even sure I could salvage the audio. You may notice me start to panic a little half way through. Thanks for your understanding.

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and Alex G. Fox as we look ahead to what Apple might have in store for us during 2017. Shhhhhh….Actually, we have no clue really so we just pontificate about what we would 'like' to see Apple do within the next twelve months.

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.
