It’s a new year and while we enjoy popping open bottles of fizzy libations and twiddling noise makers as much as the next tech publication, a podcast with nothing but those sounds would be dull listening indeed. Instead, we choose to discuss what 2012 might hold in store for Apple. Joining me in that discussion are Macworld’s Jason Snell, Dan Frakes, Dan Moren, and Lex Friedman.

It seems this prognosticating thing is a popular wheeze. Not only did our own Dan Moren pen Apple and the Year Ahead but PCWorld’s David Daw jumps in to discuss technologies other than Apple’s as well in his What To Expect in 2012 Technology.
