John Martellaro on Tech Night Owl: Apple's Multiple Warfronts

On this week's episode, John Martellaro, Senior Editor, Analysis & Reviews for The Mac Observer and a columnist for The Street, discussed how Apple's "secret war" of logistics against Samsung is working, why Apple could get more mileage out of its "slipstream" Mac upgrades, (minor refreshes and more favorable pricing), why Apple is going "back to the future" to fight Google.

John also discussed how, in a recent TMO interview, he wrote about a theoretical astrophysicist, Dr. Gaurav Khanna, who is using the new Mac Pro and OpenCL parallel processing framework to explore black holes and gravity simulations at supercomputer speeds.

Also on the show was Kirk McElhearn, Macworld's "iTunes Guy," who explained why he thinks it's time for Apple to terminate the Newsstand app with extreme prejudice. And more.

So head on over and listen in to the amazing Aug 2 episode.
