So the title makes absolutely no sense but it’s what we have to do to keep your iPhones from freaking out about 30 different times during this show. The GMen talk with Siri about the upcoming September 9th Apple Event and mostly just make her mad. Guy rants, Gaz takes pictures, and they have not one but THREE different listener audio bits for this week.
Links: Guy’s App Pick: Movie Edit Pro by Zhang Feng. Nice multitrack movie editor for those wanting simplicity over features they won’t use. $19.99 Gaz’s App Pick: Breakneck. Fly at BREAKNECK speed as you pursue your mission and get as far as you can. The world is now occupied by invaders—and they are hunting you.

Oh and “cool things” – someone put me on to Ghostery (might have been Mark @Oceanspeed from the Rampant Mumblings). Anyway – how cool is Ghostery for allowing you to block all the trackers and crud on websites? ICE COLD! That’s how cool it is 😀

Gaz and Guy are back together and end up with a really long show filled with rumor nonsense. Which turns out to be a regular show with them talking about rumors. Also, Pennsylvania hijinks, pressure washers, typical mostly already known UK sayings, and links to videos of stupid people being arrested for being stupid in cars! Thankfully Guy and Gaz are rarely in a car together so they’ll probably be back next week.
No significant ones this week
Other stuff: Guy’s App Pick: Not an app pick but a funny video of people feeling entitled and getting arrested for it. Gaz’s App Pick: Pocket. Put articles, videos or pretty much anything into Pocket. Save directly from your browser or from apps like Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite. If it’s in Pocket, it’s on your phone, tablet or computer. You don’t even need an Internet connection.

Skinomi TechSkin for Watch
Hay MyMac Podcast peeps! I wanted to share with a product that I am enjoying after getting my Watch face repaired, Skinomi TechSkin. So far I have had one on my 42mm Sport for about a month now and it keeps scratches off the face of the watch. Amazon has a some pretty good deals on them for a six pack.

This month Bart is joined by a bumper panel: Allister Jenks from the Sitting Duck podcast, Antonio Rosario from Switch to Manual, Konrad Dwojak, Mark Pouley, and Victor Cajiao from the Terra Tech podcast. The topic for this show is photographing while on vacation, both to try capture the event of the holiday, and the place being visited.
Joining Bart for this first special show is Lynda Gousha, a listener who knows a heck of a lot more about the financial markets than Bart does! This is the first of what will probably be an on-going but sporadic series of special shows. The idea for the special shows is that they will not be about Apple News, but about something that helps us understand Apple news.
This show is all about the financial markets – who are the players, what drives their actions, what are their goals, and, most importantly, what does all the jargon actually mean?!
Ashley Madison hack and the privacy and relationship repercussions are on the top of the show. Also, Pac-Man is back in a big, bad way with Pac-Man 256 from developer Hipster Whale. Apple Music is once again a big topic thanks to feedback, as well as privacy.
Gaz is here and Guy is not. They really need to get their schedules straight. Fortunately Gaz connived…I mean convinced Bart Busschots from the Let’s Talk Apple and Let’s talk Photography podcasts also part of the Stoplight Network (see what I did there?) to come on and talk about something near and dear to Bart’s heart even if it sometimes makes him cranky. Which is Security…c’mon it’s in the show title for gosh sake!
Other stuff: Guy’s App Pick: WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Gaz’s App Pick: SNAPHEAL currently (but be quick) on offer photo image correction software from MacPhun. There is a summer deal to get a load of Macphun software but not sure it will still be live when your hear this so sad face f it isn’t. Bart’s Thingy: People’s Pick: Status Board Peoples Pick from Michael Cassell
Panic’s Status Board has gone “free” with the new version. The basic config is probably all that most users need but you can upgrade to full functionality via in-app purchase if desired.

I had version 1 so got all the panel types for free. It’s a nice upgrade.
