Subscriptions to Your Mac Life

As mentioned on the Leap Day Edition of YML, we no longer have any advertisers on YML. That has nothing to do with Your Mac Life itself and everything to do with the fact that I suck at trying to sell advertising. It's just not a skill set I possess.

But, because Your Mac Life *is* my job/livelihood, I need to find a way for it to make money.

So, like a lot of other web sites, I've decided to go to a full Subscription Model. For the time being, the show remains free for all to listen - either live on Wednesday evenings or to the archives available on the web site or the iTunes Store. At some point in the future, "additional content" may be created specifically and only for subscribers but the show itself will likely always remain free to listen.

On the left hand side, you can see the buttons for subscriptions and donations. Subscriptions are automatic and can be for $2, $5, $10 and $15 per month (if you have an amount not mentioned you'd like me to include, just let me know). These amounts are withdrawn from your credit card or PayPal account each month until you stop the subscription. It's a "Fire and Forget" method of subscription. :)

There is also the "Donate" button you can use to send a one off amount of your choosing. It can be for a specific thing (we've had several pizzas and beers bought for the show hosts!) or it can be "just because". Any and all donations are appreciated.

I hope you find Your Mac Life entertaining. I hope we make you laugh on occasion, think on occasion and react on occasion. And I hope you find some value in what we do and choose to acknowledge that in this fashion. Even if you don't, we hope you'll keep listening!

Stuff We're giving Away...

With the changes we've made in how we generate revenue at Your Mac Life, we have freed ourselves up to offer some great, fun prizes to our audience!

Every week, we will choose from this list of companies and offer software and hardware to lucky listeners. Entering our contests is easy - simply send an email to "contest at yourmaclifeshow dot com" with the subject line being the month of entry. We'll make it even easier for you - just click this link each month. No purchase necessary!

But....

For those of you who are supporting Your Mac Life not just by listening but also by subscribing to the show, we are making it even easier. Your subscription email serves as your entry form each month. And, even better, for every $2 of monthly subscription, you get an *additional* automatic entry form!

That means that every subscriber automatically gets two entries in each weekly contest drawing per month, even at the $2/month level. $5/month gets three entries, $10/month 6 entries, etc.

There's no guarantee that subscribers will win any given contest but your odds certainly get better!

We think this is a great way to reward all of our listeners but to really show our appreciation for those who make an extra effort to help us keep the show on the air and getting better.

In Memoriam - Steve Jobs

Wednesday was an awful day for the Macintosh Community - Thursday was not much better. As I wondered what to do and how to do it, I came up with this idea - have friends and colleagues "Tell Me a Steve Jobs Story". Thanks very much to all who participated and, for those of you who couldn't do it, my apologies for not being able to fit you in.

Here are the voices you'll hear:

Arik Hesseldahl

Dan Moren

Jason Hiner

Adam Engst

Tonya Engst

Ted Landau

Chris Pirillo

Chuck LaTournous

John Moltz
