Talkcast tonight 10pm ET: Reviewing the year that was
Given the calendar alignment this year, with both Christmas and New Year's Eve falling on our normal Sunday chatterbox timeslot, this may be the final regularly-scheduled talkcast of 2011; I won't rule out a show on Christmas night, or one on a special day/time during the week of 12/26, but I think the 31st is pretty well booked up.
That means we're going to take this week to reflect and share: we'll review the top ten stories of the year gone by (including the obvious and tragic #1), consider what we're thankful for (and what we could have done without), and go over our Santa-baby wishlists for Apple in 2012. We'll welcome some special guests from The Loop and TiPB, raise a glass of good cheer, and all that jazz.
As always, the show only gets better when we have you as a part of it! To participate, you can use the browser-only Talkshoe client or download the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for maximum fun, you should call in. For the web UI, just click the Talkshoe Web button on our profile page at 4 HI/7 PDT/10 pm EDT Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines: dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8. We'll get started as usual around 10pm ET, which is 7pm PT.
If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your Mac, you can connect via the free Blink, Zoiper or X-Lite SIP clients, and if you have SkypeOut credit you can use Skype to call. Snow Leopard Mac users and earlier can use the built-in VoIP connector in the TalkShoe client, but Lion users are out of luck (it requires Rosetta). Talk to you tonight!
