Talkcast 10pm ET: August doldrums, ITC vetoed, Mansfield makes good
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.
It's Sunday, and it's time for the TUAW talkcast! As the dog days of summer settle in, we tend to relax a little bit on the show; bring an icy beverage, laze around the backyard, that sort of thing. Tonight, you bring your topics and we'll talk! Feel revved up by the veto of the ITC ban on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 imports? Got a hankering to chat about Bob Mansfield's new skunkworks role? Call in and let's dish -- what more could you ask? Join us at 10 pm ET, and we'll have a grand old 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 click the phone icon to join the audio 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!
