Charlotte Henry and John Martellaro join host Kelly Guimont to discuss rumors of Apple Silicon pricing, and The Oprah Conversation’s debut.
The first official Mac with an ARM CPU could be a re-branded MacBook, and one leak suggests these new MacBooks with Apple Silicon could be substantially cheaper than their predecessors.
This week, Particle Debris opens with an in-depth look at ARM technology as well as a former Apple exec’s view of how the Apple Silicon move will change the entire computer industry.
Rob Griffiths worked for Apple (1990-95), founded macosxhints.com in 2000, went on to write for Macworld Magazine, has done some podcasting, and is currently a partner at Many Tricks Software, makers of great Mac utilities such as Moom, Witch and Name Mangler.
Rob recalled his early years with the T.I. Silent 700, Commodore PET, and Apple II. At Colorado State University, Rob realized programming was not for him and followed a business track. Later, after graduate school, he landed a job with Apple. We chatted about his career, moving on to great years at Macworld Magazine, and then his current partnership at Many Tricks Software. We then delved into WWDC 2020, challenges as an Apple developer, the transition of Macs to Apple Silicon, and the evolution of macOS as a partial touch-screen OS. Good stuff here!
