Zac dusts off his distant past with Hope and Podigious’ Ashley McDonnell, revisiting the beloved fantasy classic Escaflowne, which may or may not have a completely bananas second half and a terrible movie version.
Jason and special guest John Siracusa discuss the iPhone 6 Plus, reactions to "Becoming Steve Jobs," Apple’s lost decade, and what lessons can be learned by business successes and failures.
Okay campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties because it’s coooold out there! We partake in our midwinter ritual of watching “Groundhog Day” over and over again, not because we have to, but because we want to. How does something that seems so generic on its surface unfold into one of the deepest and (dare we say it) most beloved films of all time? Plus, we cope with the Andie MacDowell problem, theorize about everything Phil did in Punxsutawney that the movie didn’t show us, and liken the entire thing to a video-game speed run. Let’s live here!
John Siracusa returns to Mac Power Users to update us on how his workflows have changed and life as an iPhone owner.
