TUAW Talkcast tonight at 10pm ET: Two new Mac apps and the culture of Apple
Editor's Note: Ow ow ow. We suffered a deeply frustrating TalkShoe fail this week and we were not able to do the show as scheduled. Our apologies to all our listeners; we'll be back next week on Sunday as scheduled.
This week on the talkcast (which is what we like to call our podcast, since it's over on the interactive TalkShoe service), we'll be talking about all of the most interesting stories out of Cupertino in the last week, including two stories about the culture of Apple, and two brand new Mac apps that are raising some buzz. Additionally, we'll continue talking about what kinds of gifts are going around this year, and the potential for a few iPad-exclusive publications.
Here's the master page to listen or join in on the show. To participate live on TalkShoe, you can use the browser-only client (just click the "TalkShoe Web" button on our profile page at 10 PM on Sunday), the embedded Facebook app, or the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for maximum fun, you should call in.
To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines (take advantage of your free cellphone weekend minutes if you like): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8. (That's a toll call, just so you know.)
If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your Mac or your PC, you can connect via the free SJphone or X-Lite SIP clients or by using the TalkShoe client's ShoePhone tool; basic instructions are here.
We'll kick things off at 10 PM ET/ 7 PM PT this evening. See you there!
