What we really think about the new 8th-generation iPad
"The eighth generation IPAD may not be the sexiest new tablet on the block with the starring price of three, hundred, twenty, nine dollars. It might be the one you're most likely to buy. So Is it worth? I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me is our IPAD expert Scott Stein welcome Scott. So Scott we had you on right after that September apple than to show your impressions of all the announcements and the eighth Jan. ipad was not the most exciting product mentioned. You know we spent a little time talking about it but. You spent a few weeks with it. Has, your. Opinion Changed, are you what are you feeling about it now I think it's fine. I think it is not surprising IPAD. This is an IPAD that reminds me of last year's ipads because it practically is last year's ipads the the IPAD air twenty nineteen and the IPAD mini in two thousand nineteen had the same chip the IPAD air in this at the same Ram. It's basically that for less. There are some trade offs here that are tiny, but the IPAD air was more expensive. Now, that's now that's an all on the apple store. The IPAD mini is, but it's a tiny bump up in price. So you know three, hundred, twenty, nine dollars. This gets in at a much more affordable proposition, the the IPAD air that's coming. which is who knows when it probably in a couple of weeks is more expensive at starts at six hundred dollars. So it looks nicer. It looks like a less expensive pro. But I think when you're talking about almost doubling the price that. That really gets into a different territory for people. Yeah. Definitely. Anthony Twenty nine starting at three, twenty nine. It's obviously the most affordable option for someone looking for an IPAD. Ultimately for you who should be looking at this IPAD is primary option I. think if you just think of an I had something to have lying around check my email to look at shows to have one for your kid. This is that one if you don't care about step up bells and whistles, you don't want like a fancier toy. Not to call ipads toys I think they're very useful but I think that there is a point at which if you try to push an IPAD to become your everyday computer, you're going to have what you call pain points. You know you're going to have these difficulties that increase as you try to throw it out more. And I go to my laptop all the time because I need to. So that's the thing about the pro. He's got a lot of upsides that could be interesting, but you really have to map out whether that makes sense for you and if you WANNA think of it as like a fun thing for you but IPAD is totally perfect doing all that other stuff that being said. You know you got to bump up from the thirty two gigs of storage I think. That is too low an amount. For for what you'd be paying for this if you want it to last. Year's, and then you're talking about four twenty, nine Ri-, which slightly changes the equation a bit. He does you talked about our kids using this and a lot of kids obviously doing remote learning right now I've got a friend of mine who know he told me when he offered his kid a Mac, a choice between a Mac and ipad actually chose the IPAD. But isn't that really geared for remote learning for Education I think the older you get it's it's very nonsuited for it. You know we have a seven year old and eleven year old seven year old uses an ipad that we have around that. We use for remote learning it suitable. I think it's great. For eleven year old uses a chromebook and I think that's what you absolutely need for the types of. Work assignments you're doing your editing stuff, etc. Now ipads work with track pads, and so there's like on the entry level ipad they don't. It doesn't have this gets to accessories. Apple has beautiful but very expensive magic keyboard. That's like three hundred dollars. There are different accessories for this entry ipad. There's a Logitech Combo touch, which is still expensive one, hundred, fifty, dollar track pad keyboard I've been using with it. It's kind of like a surface with a kick stand. Type layout, but it's good for turning into a kind of a laptop but the point is that you can edit use a track pad. You'd be surprised at it can do more than you think, but some web apps some tools a google drive works well with it now but like some things don't. And you just don't know whether you get to that point where a problem especially with file storage file maintenance and chromebooks are weird too. But they're much more like web tool type based. Think the IPAD gets a little bit hotter with that. It, and then the I mean the big difference here as you said, it's identical lashes model. The big difference is the H. Wealth processor. How people differences that make you know I'm so used to seeing like. Standard. New I IPAD iphones. It doesn't feel particularly special, but I think it's necessary to get up to speed with. We're is going and we're going the processor was a couple of years old. It was feeling a little sluggish. They twelve is not like super zippy in comparison it's it's basically fine. It gets to the like very good fine point. So you know I could use an IPAD totally, but I think it's getting to the point where you might not be able to use it. So on the future and it gets to the point, I don't think you need to upgrade to this win -sarily. If you have an IPAD lying around, that's working fine you can probably keep using it. This is like you know between this last year's IPAD entry of like last year they did the. Works at Pencil works with the smart keyboard made the screen a bit bigger. It adds up to like one set of upgrades. But this thing still uses lightning. It still has a home button, the Basil's or kind of big. So for Split Screen APPs, it's not ideal. That's a the cameras a little less good than last year's IPAD air but that's not the problem. It's on the side ipad cameras on the side that kind of sucks because. You. Know if you're doing zooms and things like that your faces off center and I have not really sell for that and they should but I don't know how long it's GonNa take for an ipad to have a side. Mounted. Camera. To address this. So just F Y that's another thing now that we're doing everything over zooms in remote,

Update On Epic's Trial Against Apple
"Somehow, we got through Monday without anything new in the epic. Battle. Between Apple and epic. Games. What. Without any decision than the battle? Anyway. Given the speed with which she decided. The first time many myself included had expected judge Yvonne. Gonzalez's Rogers to rule on two particular points whether fortnight would be forced back into the. APP. Store. For the duration of the fight and whether apple would be allowed to kill the epic developer account tied unreal engine. While the first point could be a blow to epochs game side. The second could be a blow to many others at a bare minimum thousands of developers use unreal engine to power effects and their applications. If. Apple succeeds in tanking support for unreal engine, those developers will have to go elsewhere. Either out of the APP store or to another graphics engine. For a Quick Synopsis You can go to just about any site, the next web venture beat scene that. CNN. To me though the fun had to be reading the twitter thread, Financial Times correspondent Patrick McGee's coverage. Fun Because you get to read the blow by blow starting with the judge being irked that epic produced no documents for discovery. She was curious how epic and say Apple's thirty percent cut is unfair when seemingly every platform charges the same thirty percent cut. At the same time, she quizzed apples lawyer on where the competition was. Why is everyone charging thirty percent? Rather than some at ten percent some at twenty and so on. Apple's attorneys seems to indicate that apple started the thirty percent thing in two thousand eight. and. Everybody else followed suit. The real anticompetitive issue according to epochs attorney that apple won't let epic or anybody else set up its own store inside the IOS APPS store. To this McGee had apples attorney saying. EPIC creating its own competing store within the IOS platform is essentially an indictment of apples entire business model which has been committed to the safety security and privacy of its users. That is a fundamental disagreement with the way. Apple has chosen to do business, but apple's business model has been consistent throughout its existence. This is the way it has chosen to set up its model and its trademark is to safeguard its users. Seeming to lean apple's way on the fortnight. As you judge, Gonzales Rogers pointed out that walled gardens have existed for four decades. From. Nintendo consoles and handhelds to Microsoft to Sony. What apple is doing is not much different. She said they created a platform. There was a fascinating argument about whether in APP purchases through the APP store or a product in themselves separate and distinct from the APP store. At big argues they are while apple says they are not. Judge Gonzales Rogers seemed again. Decide with Apple. The were interest was piqued by a line of thought presented by epic when the company started its own sales in the fortnight APP on IOS. Fifty percent of people playing took advantage of buying the box directly from epic. The judge then put the question to apple's attorney. Doesn't that prove that half of apple's customers wondered an alternative to the APP store and it's in that purchase system. Apple's attorney countered all that really prove was that people would rather pay seven dollars then ten dollars for the same thing. Apples attorney said it was more telling that the other fifty percent would rather pay ten bucks through Apple's own system rather than give their payment info to someone else. The question of unreal engine was murkier this time around than last. While epic argued that trying to kill unreal engine To the APP store was retaliatory and had already done irreparable harm that the company. Apple argued that it wasn't fact defensive. McGee, says, Apple's attorney argued that if unreal is allowed to operate than epic, may try to sneak past apple's APP review process. According to the attorney, others would do it too, and that really goes to the core of the system. So it's not just epic and unreal engine that we're concerned about. That would go to the core of apple's business model and unravel it and be a green light to other companies and that would be very dangerous. Apple wasn't retaliating against unreal engine said the attorney it was protecting its ecosystem. As for four nights hot fix plugging its own payment processing into the. Judge Gonzales Rogers was stern saying to epic. You were not forthright. You weren't. You were told you couldn't do it and you did you know there's an old saying arose by any other name still arose. I mean, you can trial you want. There are plenty of people in the public who consider you guys heroes for what you did. But it's still not honest. Don't try to convince me that you were forthright. When you weren't. Up once again, suggested that epic put things back the way they were bring fortnight back to the APP store using apple's payment system and let the Games continue inside while fight continues in court. This prompted an idea from the judge. What is it thirty percent went into some kind of escrow account. What if the thirty percent apple would normally get from sales in the APP was held in escrow until the case is decided. Would that be cool with both parties? The attorney for Apple said, he'd have to check with apple but. That would seem to address a lot of issues. Epic declined however saying the court should not give its assistance to unlawful provision by monopolists. While there are two cases underway here judge Gonzales Rogers said she'd rather run them as one trial while she knows whichever side loses will appeal. She could be a jury trial because verdicts by jury or less often overturned on appeal. That said either apple or at Belk has to demand the jury trial for jury trial to happen. She'll need to hear their answer on that today. As for when the trial should go forward house next summer for everybody. I think you're looking at a July trial date she said. My favorite quote actually happened in the middle of the proceedings when the judge said. I think this is going to be a fascinating trial frankly because each of these efforts makes a compelling argument.
New York - Newark Launches Investment Fund To Support Black And Latino-Owned Businesses

iOS 14 Extravaganza
"Well, apple did release a new update and It has got people's attention even my children who are not totally tuned in the singer Dad. What is this widget thing at understand? So this year the release cop people's attention. We thought it'd be fun to give a whole show. Now that's out in the public and you and I've been using it through the Beta. We've got some wisdom to drop on you. It's right. An Extravaganza of wisdom is what we've just say. No choice now. We. Are there the word has been used right let's get this extravaganza rolling. I feel like I should play some music or something Yes I think widgets are the most visible change to Iowa's fourteen apples kinda slowly been changing and updating. The design has Iowa seven and fourteen is basically in line with all of that. But which I think are the sort of headline feature because it's what you see. The first time release a folders were added that the home screen experience has changed in any meaningful way. Now, it's not a free for all like it is an android you know you're still dealing with like top to bottom you know sort of you gotta fill up one row before you go to the next row there still limitations but widgets have really I think they've really popped more than I thought they would and. Honestly like I was thinking about it before recording. Okay like our or Irish which it's for me. Are they like some other Iowa's features or Mac os features a really cool to play with maybe long term they don't stick around that it's don't find a place in my workflow replacing in my life. But I think I'm I think which is our home run guests school and Android a longtime ago and they've been great on Android for a long time but I'm so excited to have a moment, my phone and my IPAD. I mean they're done well, but they're done with an opinion like something apple would make. But when we were talking about it at our dinner table which. Is Notable because as much as I max Barky at the dinner table. I'm dad sure. But my kids are like you know this was overdue. This list someone feels modern now I mean it just interesting to me to people who are not thinking about this stuff as much as we do on our audience does but it this is clearly something that's going to resonate with people. And you know to answer your question will at worker won't work. It really depends on a couple of factors I. Think you know the software developers need to embrace it. which they've already started to an apple needs to. You know keep the gas down on this you know. So the good the good news about which is right. They're pretty the they look great on your screen. They idea of the different sizes and picking. So you can kind of make an attractive looking screen. Is a thing that is possible for anyone, and I think that apple really you know thinking that through and when you look at Android I've been using an android phone for a while now and it really is just a free for all in you have the freedom to make an incredibly ugly homes cream. And the way apple did this it's pretty hard to make it ugly because the way it's structured in the way the API work. So I, think that's the big plus that the downside is the interaction model. You know it's The old widgets you could actually interact with with these you're getting data or you're launching an APP. And think apple needs to improve that next year which it's new to allow you to interact with them.
Smart TV's don't have viruses
"Tom in Toledo Ohio listens on am eight hundred. CK. L. W. Hello Tom I have a flat screen TV I just bought that is WIFI wireless. Connected to the Internet and it also has web s on it. and. I'm wondering if I have to worry about. Getting any kind of virus. If I do use the web s Internet connection Tom, there's no need to worry about viruses on your TV much like with phones smart TVs are built very differently from computers and they run sandbox software that can't interact with other software outside of its very limited domain on top of that, they're very unattractive targets on account of many of them running on different. Proprietary systems and not storing the information that anyone could profit from stealing. That was the main issue with Max for many years didn't find very many viruses on it because everybody was using PC's yeah. But now it's more prevalent because more people are using MACs. Now, that means that bad actors tend to focus on the devices that have a better potential of giving them a return on their investment. So. You don't need to worry about your TV stream away and enjoy the benefits of using about mine if that's what you

Prepare for the ‘iPhone 12 mini,’ suggest recent leaks
"Well, according to. Apple, accurate leaker and twitter naming artists love to dream. What a guy. He's a poet he's a philosopher he's also an apple leaker. He says that apple used the name iphone twelve mini for the smallest of four models coming this year. We know the other ones will be called the iphone, twelve, twelve pro and twelve pro Max. The first apple mini product was the ipod mini I remember that little that little guy that little diminutive gadget. Two, thousand four what a cute little device that was breaks in the year after Apple. Introduced the Mac mini which has been updated a few times and then the most recent mini line apple added was the IPAD mini in two thousand twelve a whole cute lineup of mini products. Adding an iphone mini would help unify. Lineup with the IPAD. The naming convention makes lot of sense to although it would add a degree of confusion since the mini would pack a screen that's larger than the iphone se. But the is known for having the smallest display. That's I mean at least in tech circles with normal people maybe not but people realize it's kind of like its own separate thing. So will likely show off the IPHONE wind up sometime next month. We talked about that. If they do love to dream is right. Here's how it's going to hear how here's how it's going to go down. The size will be five point, four inch. iphone twelve mini the six point one, inch, iphone twelve and six point one inch I phone twelve pro and the six point seven inch iphone twelve pro Max surfboard addition. And it will come with a free pair of Kirkland jeans. Or Fanny pack whichever you prefer that you'll have a way to carry your phone wherever you go.
"mac" Discussed on Mac Power Users
"Are thanks to fresh books for support the show all right? Let's go from hardware to software in particularly the operating system Mac. Os Unlike IPAD OS. That's a year-old Mac. Os is a little older. It is Mac. Os Ten first. Public release was nineteen years ago. It's a lot of change. Of course a lot has changed but the bones are still the same right. You still use it the same way. They still the dock and the finder in the menu bar. I think for the most part if you sat somebody down in front of almost any version of Mac. Os Ten or MAC OS. They would be able to figure it out I. I wouldn't even argue if you took someone that went back on that original one. Twenty eight K. Mac they would be able to generally get around on the modern version made a lot of the paradigm are the same it is. It's amazing even from the classic Mac. Os Ten. How much shorter. Stay the same in Mac Os. Tin Really was a complete reboot. Right it was a different operating system. And they brought over a compatibility with some some old stuff but for a long time every year every version of macos. Ten wasn't every year the beginning every couple of years. It was like a big deal right like they added things like. Oh now we have a calendar application now. We have a browser. Now WE HAVE WINDOWS FILE SERVER. Stuff it really. They started very small. Th Th the thing. I was really struck by when I did. Those screen shots of the various macos. Inversions was how small like how there wasn't that much to the early versions. And you look at it now. It's it's obviously much more complex. But for long time they were just slowly building. Their house brick by brick. Yeah I I was the other day I had my tiger. I saw my tiger t shirt guy. Yeah getting in line you know tonight it released Hamas those days but I feel like for the longest time each year or two years they would release a new version and what they were dealing with was building a top and existing foundation like they would figure something out and the release. It came a few years ago. Didn't change that but added a new feature somewhere else in the operating system. Spotlight would be the exception. I feel like spotlight made continual improvements over many years but many of the features like okay. We've finished that now. We're going to tackle this other problem on our board and the thing you could rely upon as a user was the stuff that they fixed. The last time was going to stay fixed. You know For many years I felt like a a new software. Update might mean that I have something. That's a little buggy with respect to new features but the old features are going to continue to work and maybe I'm looking at it through rose colored glasses but I feel like a problem. They have now is that that's not necessarily true. I feel like things that work in one version of the operating system may break in the next version and granted. Much trying to be an apologist but I do understand that now. They're trying to work on multiple operating systems and make things talk to each other and now there's just a lot more moving pieces so it's easier to break existing things by adding new things. But that is I. Think a weakness in the operation of this point is you. Don't have that security in mind that everything's GonNa continue to work that worked before. Yeah I think that's true and it is easy to look back on old versions in. I remember when macos ten leopard came out if you were running like Servers Norton. Antivirus your machinist. When it boot any more right like they've been issues but I think the underlying thing which are getting to is that it is just so much more complex now the MAC. Os has to get along with its Iowa's and IPAD OS COUSINS. That cloud is basically got it soaks in tons of different parts. Yeah I mean it's all over the place and Mac Os and in some places. It feels like the old way of doing things in the new way of doing things or sort of in conflict. One of my least examples of this is in mail where you have in males preferences you have an account section but then also in system preferences you have a a web or online accounts section and. It's not immediately clear what you can do in each one. As why are these things in two different places like if you want them in a centralized location like it is an eye us? Get rid of this pain male. But they haven't I don't know why and it's just some of those things just feel like this. This there used to be one way to do things and now there's more than one way to do things and everything hasn't made the shift yet. Yeah I I think I'm male. I mean the things I heard kind of from from folks when used to go to W. W. C. Was that they done a lot of work under the hood and not so much. Easer facing work and probably. That's just on the list but I I do agree that it's just like You don't you just don't have the guarantee that I used to feel regressions or more common. And maybe that's just part of the price of admission in a world where you have all these cloud hooks in you have all these different platforms that needs to work with but I would like to see that. Get BETTER IMMI too. I think there's also maybe a cultural thing going on with Mac. Os where in the early days. Macos ten was you understood that it's user base. Pretty well right. There's a lot of students. It was a lot of artistic types and that was pretty much it because that was all apple pretty much had when macos since started but over. The years has grown MAC. Os has grown into a much more. Broadly used operating system and as that has taken place. Apple's had to add features. And now you have things in both first party applications that you didn't have before. I remember being a big deal and they added I cal- The calendar application. It's like Oh is part of the operating system is not. It's hard to tell and now the OS comes with so many things because people just expect that when they unblocks their first Mac book air for the first time and that has led led to a lot of complexity. And I think that there are. This is speculation. Just feeling on my part. So like don't read into this more than just that. It's my feeling is that I have the feeling that there are a lot of people at Apple working on Mac. Os projects that aren't that don't have the history of the Mac. Sorta flowing through their veins. Like maybe David Ervine I do and as that happens which is naturally the higher a lot of young talent. It's totally natural. But as that's happened what the M- what it means to be a good map or what it means to be a good MAC feature has slipped a little bit and look. I still believe Mac. Os is the best computing platform on the planet. I like that look. Maybe I'll switch to that like. I want to run MAC. Os as long. You know as long as they make it but it doesn't mean that it hasn't changed and some of those changes are bad but at the same time I think some of the changes are good. I think features that they've added over. Time have made the MAC a better place right. Things like notes for instance like a really good way to sync data between all my devices with the clouds. There's lots of good things that have added but it seems to come to the expensive stability ever at least every couple of releases. Yeah agreed and I think that setting aside stability. Let's assume they they fix that problem and I do believe they're working on it But you know what are other things that it could improve upon One for me is window management and And others comes up on the MPU podcast quite often but just the Bilton window. Management tools are are pretty bad Yeah yeah the APPS and Keyboard Maestro you can work around them which is one of the Nice things about the Mac but the But just the I thought well. I'll try again apple's because I don't have the extra monitors said well try and set up some additional screens and it's it's like handcuffing yourself when you use the built in system. It just doesn't even make sense. It takes extra mouse clicks. It's not as fluid. I mean there's really almost no reason to use it because it's only half done. I mean I feel like there. There's a bunch of work to be done on this operating system still. Yeah I mean just look at how mission control has changed over the years they've taken away and added and tweaked. Now you have split-screen APPs the last couple of years like they make very little sense in some context and yeah they're trying to add a lot of things to the interface. That aren't the haven't been there the whole time and some of them have worked better than others. I'm when they added spaces in Leopard Snow Leopard and thinking like Oh that's really cool but it wasn't for me but it for a while it was like a you have expose and you have spaces and the mission control kind of brought it all under one roof. And they've changed out a lot and yeah. Some of those features could be a lot better. But what is cool about MAC? Os is you mentioned. Move and and other applications where you can. Kinda do what you want in terms of things like window management and. There's no way that's going to happen on an IPAD right. That is a thing that is very specific to the MAC and one reason. I love the Mac because I can't tweak it in tune it to make it do what I wanted to do. So Catalina Yeah. Is it as bad as everybody says it is? I have many complicated thoughts. I think I think it is easy to to look at the death of thirty two bit. Apps and sort of how rough some of the catalyst APPs have been and say oh we're catalina is not a good update because of these things broke a lot of my workflows or the new catalyst. Apps aren't as good and those are fair and right assessments and I agree with those assessments. But if we take them off the table for a second we just look at. Catalina is an operating system and take away some of the other things that with it. I don't think it's any worse than the last couple of versions. I think at the OS level. I haven't had the USB audio issues that. I had sort of in the early mojave days. I haven't had some of the the weirdest stuff I had with high Sierra and the APS or the S for a transition so thank the OS itself is fine but.

"So there are things out there that we haven't read yet, but in looking at the specs, the baseline MAC pro GPA is not as good as the GP you in my MAC pro, and I do a fair amount of four K video rendering does happen on the GP. So I'm afraid that to spec, the MAC probe where I would need it, it would just be way out of reach financially, I would like to own one, but I don't I can't say sitting here today that's going to be under my desk at the end of the year. I'm sure it would improve things, but it would be expensive. Yeah, I have no interest in it. I the MAC pro was there's a good argument. Made I didn't need the I MAC pro but VM, but just looking at the high end uses of the stuff I do have to say that every keeps using this term pro user, I feel like there's a lot of pro users that don't need and I- MAC pro. Oh, yeah. That's very that's already brewing, MAC pro. I guess, but the but at the same time I really appreciate that apple has definitely planted its flag and said, no, we are still here for pro users and the people who make some of the, the biggest and stuff can do it on a MAC. Absolutely. And also the MAC pro I've been so happy with that, I know you have to with yours. It's it really fits my needs really well, so I'm going to long and hard at it, but I would say that, it's, it's not extremely certain that, that I'll do that. And part of that is gears a little bit part of that is the display. I like John Syracuse so would want the whole package and that display is, is beyond what I what I need to do. Because again, if you think about who apples building this for if you're talking about, like video production, work chain stuff, where you're spending that money that reference monitor I don't have those needs that monitor is extreme overkill. For me. I do wish that they had something more, forcible, that didn't have all this features, but they don't do every day and, and that is plays not in my future. Maybe like thirty years when I can pick one up for the collection until then there's not going to be that display on my desk. And that does make me wonder what I would hope the MAC pro up to there's lots of good options out there. But you know, could I live as MAC power? Co host with ace monitor like. I sleep at night, knowing that's in my studio waiting for me every morning. I when I was walking around the, the MAC pro demo Paul they had these monitors on every station, and they look like my monitor to me, they didn't look that different. And I was having trouble computing wise this, so expensive and let me just say, I'm not a monitor guy, I don't keep up with this stuff, and then as I said, in the interview with Doug when I got to the photo station and I saw, you know, used appropriately and I had a live sample next to have my, my monitors never close to look that good. But I feel like apple has kind of their victim of their own success. Because the monitors in the I Mak are amazing like I bought a second monitor to put on the side of my MAC, right? I bought four of them, and I shipped Amazon, I just kept shipping them back because I couldn't get one that was even close. And Finally, I said, well, this is the best of a bunch of junk, that's the one ended up using. Yeah. And so, so I think for a lot of us, it's like, well, we can't buy. An I MAC looking monitor. There's you can't go to Dell and get one of those in that panel is so good..

"There's one less thing. I I will mention while we're talking about this remote connection. If your MAC mini is headless that would mean, it's not hooked up to a display MAC OS will set the default resolution pretty low, and so when you remote into it, it may be sort of difficult to get around. And so there's a little HDMI adapter. Our friends at MAC stadium came up with this and found it, and it's basically just a little it's just a little dog'll that plugs into the HD my port, and it basically tricks the MAC mini into going into. To ten eighty p. So when you log into it remotely, the resolutions, a little more usable. So I use this on our headless MAC mini that we have with relay and it works. Great. I can connect with screens and everything it's a nineteen twenty eighty a really usable size, and it's like nine dollars on Amazon is pretty pretty hard. It's just it's just a little plug, and it's like a half dollar Idi bitty. So if you if you run into that where you're remolding in and the resolution is not where you want it to be then this may solve that problem for you. It's called the compu- lab display emulator at that. That's just a cool name as a great name. I think I just need to get one. Just for just for the name. This episode of the MAC power is brought to you by saying box. We all have Email. We all have too much Email, and it can be difficult to set up the filtering or the rules that we were talking about to make it manageable. As we're saying box comes insane box is really smart. And it learns what Email is important to you..

"And then put it on arm, and that was cool. And you kinda can't do that now. But with the I MAC pro you can it is a little bit of a strange decision. I think the feedback they got from pro customers was that, you know, these kinds of systems often get mounted on a wall or on an. Arm and they wanted that versatility rather than having it be like either one or the other. And once you get it. You're stuck with it. Yeah. And before we move on because both the I MAC pro in the I MAC are a little long in the tooth. If someone's listening in thinking about getting a new one any advice. You know, I I'm sure there will be an I MAC update, I'm MAC pro update at some point. I'm I think more likely the IMAX will get updated in the next six months. The MAC pro might think Intel is working on a news EON processor that might be good in this. But it would not surprise me. If this has a long upgrade cycle where it might be another year. Plus before we see something. I mean, I hope not, but it could happen. It's it's it's still to this day. I mean, it's an incredibly powerful MAC. It's basically the most powerful MAC you can get. And if you want that kind of power, go out and get it, obviously in two thousand nineteen the the new MAC pro will come and that will have its own. You know, it will it will take that crown. Right. And that so if you can wait you can find out what the the MAC pro has to offer. And then also there's the new MAC mini, which is depending on your needs can be specked up to be a pretty powerful system. It's. Own self. And even if you graphics, you could stick an e P you on it. So there's lots of things you can do with that. So the it's more complicated now than it was a year ago when this was very clearly the MAC to buy if you wanna powerful MAC, but I do love it and for a certain audience who doesn't really care about the needing a modular MAC pro with an external monitor or anything like that. It is is pretty great. I love it. I have no regrets at year later, and I do suspect that macro is going to be a lot more expensive than the gonna be a five K, MAC pro. And for people who are looking to to buy out there, where do you think they get the most bang for their buck now where where should you spend your dollars? If you're going to be configuring your machine is it on ram on updated processor is it on a bigger hard drive. I mean, I know depends. But if you're your dollars are limited and you've got to put them somewhere. Well, I mean, it does depend I feel like ram is probably the best place to start. If only because it's a lot easier to do outboard storage like buying an external SSD is it's not cheap, but it's not super expensive. And it's also pretty easy. You could even Phil Crowe it to the back of your I MAC, for example. Right. Like, you can get out outboard storage pretty easily or if you've got network attached storage. There are lots of ways to go. I don't think you necessarily need multi terabyte SSD inside depending on what you're doing. But I think that ram it's harder to to update that although on the on the I MAC it's easy to. Update that so you can models that after the fact on the pro I should say, and yeah, the twenty seven inch five K, I MAC as well. There's a little door that you can get access to that's got the ram modules in it. So so, you know, I think in most cases the processor updates are not the best deal. But on some of the MAC mini models. I think the processor updates can be very good because the base model is an I three, and although it's pretty fast. It's an I three and you can get up to an I seven for that. And likewise on the on the I MAC pro depending on the workload you're doing. I have I have several friends who have the ten core model and Phil they felt like that was the best kind of price performance option for them. And so I can see it there too..

"Big thing in the gaming space and of course steam as we mentioned earlier is awesome but as the as david mentioned and as the apple insider points out it's pretty shallow when it comes to mac titles and i've gone in there i have to admit to look for things i bought fire watch which is a great game for the mac through steam but you go in there and you see all these great titles and you start shopping around and you realize that a very small percentage of them are actually available to play on the mac and steam link which is this thing that will be great once it gets approved on the app store it will only still only run mac based game swit steam link does is it allows you to use your device or your apple tv to play a game over the net work that actually uses the processors in the gp on your mac and then just kind of almost an airplay style thing puts it up on your apple tv and allows you to say like a bluetooth controller that actually interact with and play with the game on the apple tv so it's kind of like having a consul in your house but the processor is actually your computer and they were steam was rejected i think last week the app was rejected because it had in purchase and it was violating the app store rules for an app purchases so apple's been working with steam they've resubmitted without that functionality in there a note saying that purchases of games are need to be made on a mac or pc and it probably will be approved soon maybe by the time you hear this episode so that is another option but you know everything is still kind of a little bit and this is sort of what the apple cider is pointing out is still this little janke kind of work around especially on the mac so you know mac gaming it's never been a big thing it's gotten better it's now maybe influx it sounds like it's a little bit still kind of tough for for hardcore gamers out there so i'm still curious to get a lot more your feedback on this that's why i'm continuing the conversation this episode so if you have something to say send me an email mac cast at g mail dot com another thing that came up this week somewhat i think semi related to this is.

"The great features and i said it didn't have a mac version you think even alluded that maybe with the new features of of ios porting that we saw at worldwide developer conference that maybe they would put it to mac we'll guess what it's already on mac i should have searched the mac apps or i didn't i went to the developer's website and and in my own defense if you go to the website it's not really obvious that they have a mac version if you scroll all the way down to the bottom you do see a mac with a screen shot and down in the lower right hand corner there is the mac apps store button but prominently at the top of the website is the irs at but so it's the same price for the mac version is as it is for the ios version nine ninety nine us but you can get notably for your mac and many of you wrote into tell me how much love notably on the back so it's got a great endorsement from the mac community so if you're looking for note taking app and you're evaluating different ones that is one to look into and thanks to everybody who wrote in to make sure that i didn't miss that i really do appreciate it another thing i talked about on the last episode of the mac cast was the fact that i have come around and resolve myself to what in days passed i called the new apple order the fact that more and more apps are going to be moving to the subscription model as a way to gain recurring revenue and kind of deal with the fact especially in iowa that they don't have the ability to sell app upgrades discounted upgrades to customers and i said you know i actually kinda like it especially when it turns out what i might spend in a given year is the same amount that i would normally spend on that app when i buy it outright and then because i typically if it's an app that i love and i really use new version comes out there's not even any hesitation i'm just always buying it anyway so i'm paying that upgrade price so you know the ability to give the developer money every month no that they've got a more sustainable stable revenue coming in and they can roll out new features whenever they want i think there is some advantages to the subscription model and i asked for your opinion on it and jill wrote in to share some of her thoughts on specifically why she's not a big fan of apps christians and as she points out what happens when i can't afford the subscription anymore right if you don't pay.

"I hear title games getting ported to the mac again not anything that i think we're not all that used to even with these technologies like open jail and open sale just because of the size of the mac gaming market it's not something that a lot of companies in developers really target we get a lot more stuff on irs because it's a larger platform but certainly on the desktop on the mac we've dealt with these things for a long time but there is some concern in the community that apple forcing developers onto metal is going to push things back in the other direction because we have seen some growth in recent years right it's gotten better for mac gaming and the concern is by deprecating these api's or deprecating support for open jail and open seal that we might be taking a step back so a lot of that was being talked about in the community this week i am not huge gamer so this doesn't impact me all that much so my general feeling on it is that you know games that run on metal in metal to perform much better on a mac i think the experiences are much better on a mac and again because apple hasn't been actively supporting the latest versions of open jail i don't see this as as big an issue as the community may be making it out to be but i'd love to hear from some of you who are gamers specific gamers who game on the mac how do you feel about this because we did just get to the point where we have you know external gpa support and that should be huge for gaming but if you can't get the titles you want because the developers don't wanna build for metal or metal to i guess that's a pretty big deal that could be pretty disappointing i have a feeling though we're still going to get those top tier games we're gonna get the big titles that most people want and it's more of the indie stuff and i like a lot of the indie stuff don't get me wrong but i think a lot of the india any stuff ends up showing up on us just because of the potential marketplace so i think there's kind of balanced there but i could be totally wrong on this stuff shoot me some feedback send me an email.

"Where they can follow you what you're what you're doing on the internet just based on the hardware and software configuration of your computer which is pretty tricky you know when you think about it and apples do anything to anonymously bunch of that data so when you go on the web the the the web services are not going to be able to get that much information about your specific mac like they aren't going to know what fonts you've got installed and things like that and that will help prevent them from fingerprinting new and tracking you that way it's really a cat and mouse game that apple's playing here the mac apps store is getting some updates we're gonna see new categories and we're also going to see video previews coming to the app store we're also seeing some apps that have left the mac apps store coming back bb edit is coming back to the mac app store the barebones sophomore folks are bringing stuff back to the app store and microsoft is coming to the mac app store yeah you've always been able to sign up for microsoft office in the iowa's store but microsoft office has never been available through the mac apps store so i'm guessing apple and microsoft made some kind of deal and also wasn't talked about in the keynote but i think is probably going to come out in the next few days i think apple's relaxing the sand boxing with all the new security they've added they're they're going at the security model i this is my interpretation we'll happened today they're talking all about how they're protecting your data and it seems like they're focusing more on the data end about people getting access to your data as opposed to locking down apps as much and i think that the sam boxing is going to be relaxed a little bit that's allowance some of these apps to come back into the store and they're going to protect your data on the other side of the transaction so this is like katie said we're just recording this right after the keynote and i expect we'll learn more about this next few days but i think there's some changes that have been happening behind the scenes that's making it.

"Am i being too alarmist i i wouldn't limit it to just those three apps because there are other good ones but i i would just say be careful let's talk about it because we always get asked and if we don't address it up front we're going to get asked about it what is our stance on antivirus and anti malware for the mac so where are you twenty teen i don't use either so that that's the short answer the short answer is no the the longer answer is it has been probably more than twenty years since i've run any kind of antivirus software on my mac not since the nine days have i run any antivirus software on my mac that day may come but we are not there yet the the reason is i have found that generally it is not very good that the usually this a situation where the cure is worse than the disease there are generally not many true quote unquote viruses out there for mac that would be caught by an antivirus software and that having an active antivirus software that is running in the background of your mac is going to be resource intensive probably is not going to catch anything and is probably going to make your user experience pretty poor i have occasionally if there is.

"By apple they're you know made for iphone certified or certified to work with your mac and as far as mac chargers go i think only apple chargers are really truly certified to work with your mac so you're probably gonna have to buy or want to buy an apple charger in that case but for phone chargers and stuff like that make sure it has that made for high phone certification and especially if you're buying third party batteries you want to be careful about what you're buying and that's because you wanna have the circuitry that keeps things in check and and good so just be aware of that and you know s four has leaving your device always plugged in you know despite this report i still have i still am of the mind that it's a good idea to cational disconnect your mac from power not have it always plugged in twenty four seven seven days a week three hundred and sixty five days a year if you're doing that then i w would ask why didn't you despite a desktop right you don't need a thing with the battery because you're never taking it out about i think it's good to run the electrons through the battery every once in a while let it discharge a little bit charged backup do you have to do it no but you know i just feel like that something probably worth doing batteries were made to be used not set you know not sit there being a hundred percent charged and unused but that's just my opinion i don't know that there's any empirical evidence to prove that that's a good thing.

"No problem easy peasy right well it didn't turn out to be so simple that's how it's worked for me mostly in the past but this time around i brought it up from my clone hard drive that wasn't the problem held down the option key selected the carbon copy clone dr and sure enough it booted right in to my operating system off the external but almost immediately after booted up and it did take a little bit longer to boot up of course because that's a spinning hard drive usb three external drive that i use in my mac pro has superfast sst that wasn't a problem but once i was logged into my account things started to get really strange i started getting massive beach balls i could barely move the cursor around the the mac the system turn out to be almost completely unusable i was baffled by this i was like what is going on as something on wrong with my backup i ended up trying my super duper clone because i have one of each and that didn't really change things still getting beach balls and stuff like that what i denny fide ultimately as being the problem was one i have been spoiled by the speed of the sst so some of that was just you know running on external spinning drive it was a little bit slower but the bigger issue was that my mac and the operating system was now responding to that clone as if it was like a whole new mac like i completely swapped out the hardware.

"You can get it for way less money five case still get a great computer evan okay this is the you're the only person i ever asked this question on this show last question it's been three years is there any game and i it pick any apple platform is there any game that i should be aware because i don't buy games until you tell me too apple platforms home did you play fire watch when it came out i was aware of it but i haven't played it yet that i think is the it's not a mac exclusive game um i'm is he finshes elbow mac me say well you can looks up so it's very difficult in this in this multiplatform world like they're they're pretty much they're very very few mac exclusive games so mostly what you're asking is there some popular game that came out recently that also happens to version that runs on the mac even fire watch which was made you know in in cooperation with partially funded by panic makers of transmitted and many other fine mac applications they they helped make fire watch but power watches available for consoles and for pc and also for the mac so they go where the market is you have to it's a abs if you're looking for but if you look for some kind of mack pedigree fire watches what i would suggest if you just looking for a game recommendation in general especially for you know that that i've been may be velenjak what remains of youth finch uh may be available on the mackin steam maybe even if it's not you should play on whatever platform it's available if you can.

"To do but just as the plain old mac user every aspect of the magazine bring system it's like should be up for grabs for you know potential improvement until recently i talked a lot about window management uh there are plenty of things you can do related to window management that could be good ideas like in the beginning of the mac we saw other macro we saw a lot about these classic macro has had its way of doing things amac was ten km walk it had a bunch of new ideas it had the duck which was a things not existing classic mac us and the dock evolved over time expose which is things did not exist in classic mac loss for way to manage windows it adopted spaces which is an idea from many previous systems of like virtual desktops as of and it refined that idea dashboard another idea of how you could have things that are kinda like the successor's but not really like in the early days of mac os time they tried all sorts of new and interesting things there's no reason you have to stop doing that is not as if our we've tried those things and now that's at everything is done every one of those things before a long you could have said well you don't need any the us you've got everything but this you know that there's always new things to try new things experiment with the most of those are not like oh you need a new colonel or something like that their user land features right or even just the applications different kinds of applications different miles for applicant has before the ileife applications came back mac apps didn't look like that there was a new idea how to make a good mac up all make it one window and make it simple and you know whether you like it or not it was an interesting new idea of how to write america versus the old world multiple in those in power and stuff like that that kind of change has slowed to a trickle in the mac and has nothing to do with the mac being like that like there's nothing more to do so the end of history illusion like now we're done no is just states stopped putting time and money into which again may be appropriate given their prospects of their other platforms.
