Apple’s Back to the Mac event gave us lots to talk about. And so last week's podcast was, well, full of deep thoughts. Enough of that! Now time for the fun and games we like to call... the Macworld Pundit Showdown.
An impressive array of panelists looks to show off their punditry prowess in this installment. Editorial director Jason Snell, senior associate editor Dan Moren, staff editor Serenity Caldwell, and freelance writer Lex Friedman battle it out to see whose insights are the sharpest and whose intellect is the keenest.

We began September with an Apple-hosted press event that saw an overhaul of Apple’s music and entertainment products. We end the month by revisiting one of the products previewed at that event—the Apple TV. Unveiled by Steve Jobs during that Sept. 1 music event, the Apple TV began shipping this week.
Macworld editorial director Jason Snell and senior editor Jonathan Seff have spent most of Wednesday testing the new Apple TV for a review that will be posted soon on Macworld.com. But first, they join me in the Macworld Podcast to talk about what they’ve discovered about Apple’s revamped set-top box.

Apple is pushing its mobile devices in a big way. And because it is, we’re starting to see changes in how businesses and educators incorporate these devices into their worlds. In this episode I speak with Macworld contributor Joel Mathis about the iPhone and iPad in business and education. (Note that Joel’s two-year-old son makes his presence known during our talk. If the joyful sounds produced by toddlers drives you to distraction, feel free to tune in next week.)
Before that interview, I opine on Apple, its products, and the sometimes unreasonable expectations we have of each.

This week, Macworld held its onsite off-site—an all-too-rare gathering of the entire Macworld staff. (Many of us work remotely.)
