Hodge and podge

It’s not unusual to find story comments littered with “Slow news week, huh?” from the snarkier members of our tribe. But, in truth, there are weeks when there isn’t much happening. Unless you’re fascinated by the next iteration of Microsoft Office for Windows or the various names appearing and disappearing from the door of Yahoo’s CEO suite, this is just such a week.

But that doesn’t prevent me from forging ahead and hogging an entire podcast to discuss rumors of an iPad mini, offer my thoughts on my new Google Nexus 7 tablet, provide a tip about mirroring your Mac to an Apple TV, and proffer vacation packing advice. Hodge podgy though it may be, this episode of the podcast has a little something for everyone.

I mentioned that John Gruber had thoughts regarding an iPad mini. You can read them in his Let’s Try to Think This iPad Mini Thing All the Way Through. I haven’t had my Nexus 7 long enough to fairly evaluate it, but my PCWorld colleague, Melissa Perenson has. Read her review for the lowdown. For more details on configuring an older Mac for mirroring, see my An Alternative for AirPlay Mirroring Mac 911 article. And if you’re curious about how to manually configure an iCloud email account, Mac 911 can help there too.
