One of the secrets around our business is that when summer comes along, so too come stories related to summer travel. And we are no more immune to this trend than anyone else. However, that doesn’t mean we’ll offer up the same old, same old “I took the family to the Grand Canyon and here’s the gear I brought with me” story. No, this episode’s guest, Ben Long, is taking a very unique trip that requires a just-as-unique collection of gear.

We often hear about young developers—boys and girls age 6 who’ve created the latest iOS sensation. But in the clamor for youthful innovation we sometimes forget about those who’ve been in the business for the long haul—seasoned professionals who’ve seen the software landscape change over decades. I’m pleased to welcome just such a professional to this episode of the podcast—Peter Tamte, who’s seen Apple software development from the beleaguered days to the triumph of iOS.

To kids across the land, school is out for summer (unless you’re south of the equator in which case, it’s winter and maybe you’re still enjoying those carefree schooldays). Still, there are reasons to think about education and Apple during these months. Kids forget what they’ve learned in the previous nine months and in order for them to not be completely mind-numbed from June to early September, you may want to do a few things to exercise their little gray cells—use an iOS device, for example, to educate while also entertaining. I discuss exactly this with Scholle Sawyer-McFarland and Joel Mathis in this episode of the Macworld Podcast.

What do you do when the brightest minds of the Mac and iOS developer community descend upon San Francisco for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference? You pull aside four of those bright minds, and ask them a series of foolish questions about the week’s events before declaring a winner.

Yes, it’s another installment of our Pundit Showdown, and we’ve assembled a tip-top panel to take on all the news coming out of Apple’s developer confab. This week’s panel includes:

If it’s June, it must be time for another Worldwide Developers Conference. (Well, unless it’s one of those years where Apple holds the event in August, but work with us here.) With the annual gathering of Mac and iOS developers set to kick off next Monday, June 10, we’ve assembled a panel of editors to preview Apple’s big event.

Senior editors Dan Frakes and Dan Moren and associate editor Serenity Caldwell will tell you what to expect when Apple executives take the stage for next Monday’s WWDC keynote, whether that’s new Mac hardware (it’s a possibility), new phones or tablets (unlikely, we think), or previews of the upcoming versions of Apple’s operating systems (practically a near certainty.

That’s the first subject of this week’s podcast—wireless streaming of audio and video. Dan Frakes joins me to do just that. Once we finish with AirPlay, Dan and I talk about Bluetooth keyboards as Apple TV controllers.
