Talkcast tonight, 10pm ET/7pm PT: Cruise-in Edition!
All-new dial-in experience! See below -- do not call into Talkshoe, we won't be there. Be sure to set up Fuze Meeting before the show if you want to join in live.
Another Sunday, another TUAW talkcast! Kelly's back in the driver's seat to cruise through another week of Apple chitchat. [Sorry about last week's scheduling foul -- unexpected circumstances and all that. –Ed.]
We'll chat a bit about Mac OS evolution, including the history of the default desktops, we'll talk about iOS 7 (what bits we can say without breaking NDA, of course), and we'll even get around to some "lunch hour" apps if we have time.
Reminder on new-style talkcasting: With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're using a new system 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.
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. Just remember to click the phone icon in the meeting UI to join the audio portion once you're in.
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.
Your patience and forbearance with our new tech 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!
