Talkcast tonight, 10pm ET: WWDC wish list/preview, and a whole new way to call
All-new dial-in experience! See below -- do not call into Talkshoe, we won't be there.
The cone of silence ahead of WWDC is beginning to crack -- Mac Pro stocks getting lean, laptop rumors percolating, a new low-end iPod touch showing up... and of course everyone is eager to see what Jonny Ive's been working on in his underground, impeccably decorated laboratories.
Tonight at 10pm, bring your best guesses and wish lists for a fun time on the Talkcast. There might even be a bulletin from Kelly's House of Crackpot Theories!
In honor of the new month, we're trying a new way to connect on the Talkcast. With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're going to be leveraging a Fuze meeting room to record the show. This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.
Here's how it's going to work: You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience, but browser-only will work fine. Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 775-996-3562 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.
While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show will appear in this very post at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.
This is an experiment, of course, so your patience and forbearance is appreciated in advance. For the time being, the podcast feed of the show will continue to originate from Talkshoe and should be there within 24-36 hours. See you tonight!
