October 25, 2014 — Dan Frakes, Alain Ghiai and Jeff Gamet

We welcome columnist Dan Frakes, a former Macworld editor, who discusses the decision to discontinue the print edition of the oldest Mac magazine, and to put the Macworld / iWorld conference on “hiatus.” He’ll also discuss current Apple issues, such as iOS 8 and Yosemite.

You’ll also hear from security expert Alain Ghiai, CEO of DigitalSafe, who focuses on smartphone safety and whether Americans should be concerned over the government’s claimed right to “break down the doors” to our digital privacy. He’ll also discuss the company’s encrypted cloud storage system, which is based in Switzerland.

Our final segment features commentator Jeff Gamet, Managing Editor for The Mac Observer. His bill of fare includes the possible reasons that iPad sales are flagging, the disconnected coverage of the goings on at Apple, the prospects for the Apple Watch and how it sucked the air out of the smartwatch market for this holiday season. He’ll also comment briefly on Microsoft Windows 10, which is currently available as a Technical Preview.
