In his very first radio interview, Ken Bereskin, director of Mac OS Product Marketing, has been released from the secret bunker beneath One Infinite Loop (Apple headquarters) to talk on The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac.
He’ll be on for two full segments. Bereskin will start off in Mac Basics, talking about OS X from the new user’s point of view. He’ll then continue on discussing what OS X means to developers and to the Mac and UNIX communities.
But there are plenty of other guests, as well. Andy Parsons, Senior Vice President of product development and technical support for Pioneer will be on to talk about Pioneer’s DVR-AO3 –better known in the Mac community as The SuperDrive. The Mac Show’s “Newsmaker of the Week” is Charles Haddad of Business Week, he was the first columnist to put all the pieces together and possibly divine Apple’s education strategy.
On Tech Tips, sponsored by Tech Tool Pro 3, Neil Ticktin, CEO of Xplain, will talk about developer issues with OS X (and maybe have an announcement or two himself), Peter Cohen of MacCentral will have all the Mac gaming news, and Mark Stevens will talk to Scott Kelby in Mac Media Pro.
In the first User Group Focus of spring, correspondent Chuck Joiner will feature an interview with Charles DeVore of the Portland Macintosh Users Group about MacCamp, the two-day Mac event held in the Oregon forest, as well as Apple’s Mac OS X user group presentations. There will also be a new contest especially for MUG members, courtesy of Aladdin and Casady & Greene.
As usual, the Mac Show Crew has lots of “swag” to give away: Podium CoolPads, t-shirts from MacSupport.About.com, and copies of Totally Hip’s latest products, HipFlics and LiveSlideShow!
The Mac Show is on every Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. (Pacific). You can also join the show’s crew in the Chat Rooms on the
World Without Borders site
or on the dal.net servers on IRC in the #macshowlive Channel.
