Panel: Jason O’Grady, Rob Parker and Tom Hesser
Topics: In this episode Tom Hesser makes a surprise guest appearance for our 150th episode. On it, Rob, Tom and I discuss Steve Jobs taking his third medical leave, the imminent launch of the vaunted Verizon iPhone and we play “What’s on your Mac?”
Here’s what’s on our Macs this week:
- Linksys E4200 Dual-N Router ($179) – Screaming-fast wireless access point with 300 + 450 Mbps wireless transfer rates, 3×3 MIMO antenna array, USB storage and four Gigabit Ethernet ports. It beats the pants off the Airport Extreme (I’m just sayin!)
- MarsEdit 3 ($40) – The best way to write, preview, and publish your blog.
- SnapTranslate Premium - $25 translation app for iOS. Take a picture of any text and it’s translated instantly.
- Starbucks Card Mobile – Free iOS app for paying for your freakin’ latte fetish. Just don’t get a Trenta (it’s bigger than your stomach!)
- Infinity Blade ($5.99) – Sword fighting action game with console-quality graphics (and IGN iPhone game of the year)
- PhoneView ($19.95) – Software to access all the data on your iPod or iPad (I’ll second Tom’s pick, it’s fantastic)
