YML Interview - "Thomas Matthews, Executive Editor, Wine Spectator"

I'm Canadian. Therefore, I love beer.

But I have also started to acquire a taste for wine. I still know next to nothing about it but it's fun to learn more.

The folks at Wine Spectator have updated their excellent WineRatings+ iOS app and I spoke to the Executive Editor, Thomas Matthews, about wine, the magazine and their app.

It's also posted to the iTunes Store under the Your Mac Life Podcast section so it's probably just easier if you went ahead and subscribed to Your Mac Life on iTunes.

As always, we hope you enjoy it and let us know what you think!

YML Interview - "Michael Hiltzik, How Apple invites facile analysis"

Last week I spoke to Michael Hiltzik, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author who has written the books "Dealers of Lightning: Xerox PARC and the Dawn of the Computer Age" and "The New Deal: A Modern History". He also wrote a very interesting article on the Los Angeles Times site, "How Apple invites facile analysis".

Such a wonderful reaction from a little girl on her first trip in an airplane. I don't mind flying, but I don't know that I could be in a plane where I could stick my arms outside. LOL

Hope you enjoy.

Interview with Ken Segall on jcp, Apple and Ron Johnson

I had a great conversation with Ken Segall, former Apple and NeXT Creative Director (and the guy who coined the term "iMac"), about Apple's former VP of Retail Ron Johnson and the challenges he faces as the CEO of JC Penny. You can read Ken's article, "Meanwhile, over at Ron Johnson’s place…" here.

A way to connect to IRC for people….

Hey Shawn,

I know it's close to show time, and may be a little too late... But this thought just occurred to me. Since the web IRC chat as been turned off, that may leave some people without the ability to chat. I thought I'd provide at least one solution.. the one I use, in case you want to share the info somehow.

I use a program called Adium:

http://www.adium.im/

Download Adium and install it on your Mac. It's completely free, open source software. It doesn't have any Java in it. Once it's installed, launch it. Go to 'Adium' 'Preferences' 'Accounts'. Click the Plus sign in the lower left corner, to add an account. Pick account type IRC.

1) In the 'Nickname' field, put the name you normally use for chatting with the YML group...
2) In the 'Hostname' field, put "irc.chat-solutions.org"
3) In the 'Password' field, put the password to your Nickname, if you've previously set one. If you haven't set one, leave this field blank.

The rest of the tabs (Personal, Options, Privacy, Proxy); you can leave blank. Click the OK button. Click the check box next to this account in the accounts list. The circle to the far right side should turn green and the account should say "Online" if you have successfully connected to the IRC server.

You will get a pop-up window with two tabs. One from 'global' and one from 'nickserv'. The one from 'global' is just the IRC server's information messages. You can just close that tab. Mouse over the little orange circle, and it will turn into an 'x' to close. In the 'nickserv' tab, type "/join #yourmaclife" (without the quotes).

A new tab will appear, that will be our chat room. Click on that tab, and you're ready to chat. You can either close the 'nickserv' tab, or leave it open. Doesn't matter. I know there are other ways to connect. Bill uses a different program. But this is how I do it, and it doesn't cost the user any money. It's relatively simple....

Use this info as you wish....

-Monte
