Expo Special: Mac developer meets Mac collector

A disparate pair of Mac notables stop by the Macworld Podcast Loft in this special Expo edition of the Macworld Podcast. I’m joined by Mac developer Steve Gehrman and Mac enthusiast James Savage. Steve is the developer responsible for Path Finder, an OS X file browser. And James is a collector—he owns more than 170 Macs—and a podcaster. You can listen to him on the RetroMacCast, where he holds forth on vintage Macs.

After talking about Tuesday’s Macworld Expo keynote, we delve a little further into their respective interests. I talk to Steve about what he likes about OS X coding, how he got started, what his favorite Path Finder features are, and whether or not Apple makes available all the APIs he needs to write his app. James and I talk about when he got started collecting vintage Macs, whether he has duplicates, and whether he has a favorite.
