YML News

The InterContinental Hotel San Francisco, The Official Hotel of Your Mac Life for 2010

2010 promises to be an interesting and perhaps pivotal year for Macworld Conference & Expo and Your Mac Life is planning on bringing you all the sights and sounds from San Francisco in February 2010.

First order of business before any of us even get there however is where to stay. For years our home away from home has been the Pickwick Hotel and it has served us well. But we wanted to change things up a bit so for Macworld 2010, YML has managed to get what we think, is a great rate at an *amazing* hotel that is so close to the Moscone you can practically roll outta bed onto the show floor.

Your Mac Life - CANCELED THIS WEEK (Sept 16/17) - Our Apologies

Further to yesterday's announcement, unfortunately we are going to have to cancel tonight's show. Apparently internet service providers don't understand what they mean when they say "we'll be there tomorrow, Mr. King".

Shawn is hoping that they will actually show up tomorrow and if so, we may have an abbreviated (taped) show tomorrow.

Our apologies to our sponsors and listeners for the inconvenience. Please stay tuned for further updates and if a taped show is not available tomorrow, we look forward to seeing you next week with a full live show, same bat time, same bat channel.

No Video on Tonight's YML!

Sorry but the video switcher I thought I would get in time for tonight's show hasn't made it to the new YML World Headquarters so we're stuck with broadcasting plain old audio only this evening.

It's Moving Day!

Good News! Today is Moving Day!

Bad News - Tonight's show has had to be canceled. :(

For those of you who are aware of what's going on in the King household, you'll know I was forced to leave my home this past week - not having electricity, gas, heat and water will make you do that.

The plan was to get everything set up in time for tonight's show but circumstances have prevented all the equipment necessary to do a live show from being set up in the new location. I am going to try and do a live show on Thursday evening so keep your fingers crossed!

Are You ready for some Football!?

We are big time NFL football fans here at Your Mac Life and, with the pre-season well underway, we've got two football leagues for you to join!

The first is set up by listener Thomas von Hassel and is a NFL.com Fantasy Football league!

Before you join the league, you'll be presented with key information about the league, including the draft date, draft type, current league members and league type. There is a limit to 12 "Team Owners" and last year, it was won by the Danes! Come on and join - you can't let *Europeans* win an American Football Fantasy League!

The second league is a more traditional "pick 'em" pool - each week, you'll go to the web site and pick the winners of each of the NFL games. It's a straight win/lose pick so there's no need to worry about point spreads. Last year's winner was....aheam...Yours Truly... :)

For more info, send an email to shawn at yourmaclifeshow.com and I'll send you details on either or both pools.

Your Mac Life Cancelled Tonight :(

I was in Divorce Court all day on Monday and Tuesday and things didn't go so well for me. I am drained and don't feel that I could give my best effort this week.

My apologies to our sponsors and listeners!
