    The Talk Show

    ‘A Very Masculine Bark’, With Special Guest Serenity Caldwell

    Saturday, 4 March 2017

    Serenity Caldwell returns to the show. Topics include the Best Picture fiasco at last week’s Academy Awards, Tim Cook speaking vaguely of “the pro area” at Apple’s shareholders meeting, the conflict between Apple’s culture of secrecy and the glaring embarrassment that is the 1,100-day-old Mac Pro lineup, new iPad Pro rumors and our ruminations on tablet vs. notebook hardware form factors, The Wall Street Journal’s seemingly goofy report on new iPhones replacing Lightning with USB-C ports, and the garbage fire that is Uber’s corporate culture.

    Variety’s backstage photographic evidence showing how PricewaterhouseCooper accountant Brian Culligan gave Warren Beatty the wrong envelope.

    Tim Cook speaking vaguely of Apple’s commitment to “the pro area” at Apple’s shareholder meeting.

    Ming-Chi Kuo, following up on that WSJ report, says all new iPhones will have Lightning ports.

    Jonathan Hoefler’s Twitter thread critiquing an in-the-works typeface design by Louie Mantia — a great example of how the iPad is great for some forms of work.

  3. EP.21 - MiniStudio Recording with Eric Larsen of Tascam - PodToPod -

    This week I got to play with a piece of podcasting technology I have been dying to try out since I first spotted it August of last year, the Tascam MiniStudio US-42 and US-32. Eric Larsen, Director of marketing for Tascam and TEAC, was on hand at Podfest Multimedia Expo, to display these really simple and easy to use audio recording interfaces that will help you start producing your podcast in no time. And I had to sit down to try it out and share it with you.

    I also share a brief overview of my experience at Podfest Multimedia Expo.

Die Regierung stürzte, Russland annektierte die Krim, schürte den Konflikt in der Ostukraine, der zum Krieg eskalierte. Drei Jahre später dauert der Konflikt noch immer an. Wo liegen die Ursachen dafür? Diskussionsleitung: Sabine Adler
