We start off by having Mike and Elisa lamenting the end of summer. They then move on to lamenting the end of Apple printing service. They discuss some possible alternatives and the experiences with other services.
The topic changes to the upcoming Apple event and what has been said about and what they think might come out of it and if there’s anything that we are hoping for.
From there we move on to picks. Elisa wants to spin some vinyl and want to broadcast it around the house so she picks the Vinyl Pro Set by Sonos. Next Mike wants to spin some dirt so he picked the Troy-Bilt Rototiller.
Even though we start with the weather and commiserate for poor Elisa we do have real topics. First up is the question of if money were not a factor which of the new iPhones would we buy. Everyone might be surprised with Mike’s answer. Then we discuss Mike’s new approach to internet service going all in on wireless. We finish out with our thoughts on the remaining hardware announced.
As usual we start with the weather and special discussion of our thoughts for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Apple has already posted a link to allow you to contribute through them to help the victims. Next Kevin regales us with how stupidity fixed his Mac mini. Followed by MacOS Sierra oddities. Next Mike brings us to a discussion on the end of CrashPlan for consumers and Apple’s move away from 32-bit Pro app support. We then move on to our last topic from Melissa about how we each experienced the eclipse.
We round out the show with our picks. First is Melissa with her choice of Swanwick Sleep Blue light blocking glasses. Next up is Mike’s choice of an AC Portable Charger from RAV. This tickles both Melissa and Kevin’s fancy.Lastly is Kevin’s choice for another retro gaming pick of a Nintendo N64 in Jungle Green.
This week we have a focus on some house keeping and gaming. First off we have an announcement that GSE is moving to an every other week schedule for the show and discuss some of the reasons why and what to expect going forward.Next up is some sad news, great friend of the show and of our’s personally has passed away, Dorothy Yamamoto. She was great artist and a huge supporter and will be greatly missed. We share a few stories and anecdotes of Dorothy. On a lighter note we move on to our main topic and that is an article Mike found on a device that let’s you turn your smart phone into a Gameboy. Even letting you play your Gameboy and Gameboy Color cartridges. We discuss some of the other things coming in retro gaming in the near future.
We round out the show with our picks. First is Elisa with her choice of a piece of software to make podcast editing a bit easier, it is Apple’s Logic X. Next, Mike tries to share his pick until Skype decides to kick him out. He gets a chance to give a basic description of his choice of the WORX Ultimate AeroCart Combo. Lastly, Kevin shares his choice of a Refurbished 6th generation iPod touch.That is as Elisa says, is to accommodate his vast music collection.
