Their batteries are burning a little faster, but I'm having so much fun. That's good. Before we get to the the Beta season, because that is officially started now and apple, and in a big way, we spoke a couple of episodes ago about the Really FM membership program and Mac power users going to be taking part of that starting in July so. What we're GONNA be offering recalling more power users, a very clever David that name at whiteboards and consultants, and we came up with it pretty good right it costs thousands of dollars come up with that name, so please join so I can pay off their brand more power user so What this is GonNa be is if you become a Mac, power users member. You will receive an ad free version of the show. And at least once a month, David Noggin me doing extra segment covering the news. You know one thing about Mac power users as we talk about the news here and sometimes we try, but it's kind of a weird fit for our format. So he said look. We can do it for members at least once a month. If stuff's bigger I, think we'll do it more often kind of talking about the news through the Lens of MPU. Yes, and I am super excited that we can bring some extra content, and for those of you that are trying to get through your daily faster, and you don't want to listen to the ads there you go. There's an option for you. Yes, so we will have in the next episode will have directions of how to sign up and everything but kind of onto put on everyone's radar That will start in. July I'm super. Excited me too, and if you don't WanNa, be member. That's okay. We still have the show. You'RE GONNA. Get The ads, but you know we got to pay the bills. The forms are still going to be there. The you know the newsletter. All the stuff we do for Mac power uses GonNa, continue just as before, but if you want to help, support us, when appreciate it, and and you get E-. Bonuses for that? Yeah, nothing about the relief of membership is taking things away. It's about adding new things for member so yep. All right, so sign up, guys. We're going to start that in July, and the Stephen I have some some great ideas and I'm I'm really looking forward to starting that kind of that era of Mac power users. Yeah, buddy, you know I, I haven't said this publicly, but I am so thankful for how great you've been on. The show can I send a nice. A Little Journal era. Things I'm thankful for today. By was thankful Stephen Accurate because you know. We had big transition from Katie to you, and it's just been so seemless, and you've been a great help with the show and all the stuff you do man. It's great having you aboard it's it's so much fun. I cannot believe it's been. A year and a half. But yeah, it's it's so much fun and I really feel super lucky to be year so. Could tell I just got an email from someone saying I really like the new kid. Anyway so ww DC and data. Season is upon us every year. I, I, him in Haw, and I always install all the Betas usually. We don't cover them a lot. Until the we're closer to release, but because of this year that changes are so significant, and people are just so interested in the stuff that Steven and I, both kind of made a point to go a little crazy with Beta installs and we've been using them now for a weekend. I thought it'd be fun to report how these features are working and. And given. This is Betas with some of this stuff could change, but you know. Let's kind of dive in deep on it I will say you've gone a little deeper than I have so the pool right I'm swimming in the pool. You did a cannonball from the top of your house into the deep end. Oh, I did I. Did I I wrote a post in the payers forum saying Hey Steven I've gone a little crazy with the bait. If you've got questions, let us know and a team. Oh, wrote crazy like install watch os Beta. And one of us did I'll give you one guess. Not, me. Like I had actually Rosemary. went in that pool I I said well. Did you watch blow up anything? She says well when I wash my hands at once crash, but otherwise it's been fine, and like you know it and also I feel kind of cavalier this year because I'm home, not traveling. if if my phone gets to messed up I can always unwind. The Beta I'm. Home doesn't matter that much so I. I didn't feel that bad about it, so so let's just Let's list the devices right What have you got? The BETAS installed on, so I've got the Beta on a external SSD that. I'm booting my macbook pro from I, need my fro some later this year, so I'm not willing to put the bait on at directly yet. And running it on my I've had many other. My leverage IPAD PRO is probably going to succumb to it. By the time this episode comes out out of my phone, and the definitely not my Mac pro The this machine is where I make my living, and it will stay on Catalina for some time, but yes. I'm playing with it kind of getting my. Getting in the pool. I spent more time with it on the Max I've got thoughts around that, but. I want to get back. Somebody said a second ago. The interest in Beta cycle is way higher than it normally feels like. And maybe that's because a lot of people aren't home. Life's a little bit slower now. It's because like big Sur in particular is a huge change having we just on your iphone. Who Change like there's a lot of things that are really attractive about these Betas. Wherein some years it's like yeah, it's better, but you know. You can live without it for three more months. Some of the stuff people want to really experience now. Yeah, agreed. And and there is kind of some themes to these Betas as we go through it. In the show today I started with the Beta on my is because I have two IPAD pros because I'm that guy so I started with a on the big IPAD pro and it was running fine, and then it quickly cascaded over a couple of days. And I put it on the laptop, so I had big Sur on the laptop in it on the IPAD. Then suddenly I had it on the second IPAD I had on my own. I also put it on my Mac pro because we have a the way. The recording situation is right now in the sparks headquarters. Has You know there's there's four people living in fifteen hundred square feet and so? My studio isn't really where I'm recording shows where my I MAC PRO is. It's where I do all the edits and all that stuff, but I'm not doing the recording there My old studio has been turned into my daughter's. Daughter's bedroom, but we have an extra in there, and that is the kind of recording machine I'm sitting at it right now, so my fancy Mike and Everything so that one is not upgraded or or running Betas, but but but the all the others should Max. The to Max I own are and then a few days ago I. Put on the watch, too. Because I as I told Rosemary and the automakers. If it breaks, it's her fault. But it's you know so, I, I've been reading on everything. This one thing that you may have heard in the news is these are pretty stable Betas I. think partly because wwe came later. This is more like Beta or Beta three in normal year. That being said do as we say, we do. Don't don't know these. If you need to get your work done Yada Yada Yada Yeah. I, mean they're still developer Betas. At this point, you have to have a developer account. The Public Beta will be in July..
