During Monday’s Fireside Chat at the Apple World Wide Developer Conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said of Mac OS X development, “The train has left the station.”
One of the companies riding in the first class section is Macromedia. Keith Hutchinson, FreeHand 10’s product manager will be on tonight’s episode of
The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac, to talk about that porting effort and what this latest version of Freehand brings to the OS X Train.
Meanwhile, correspondent John Welch will be reporting on WWDC. In the “Newsmaker of the Week segment,” The Mac Show will talk to freelance writer, Chris Barylick, who got in line at 4 am to be Apple’s very first retail customer at Tyson’s Corner Mall in McLean, VA.
In the “Mac Media Pro” segment, Mark Stevens is back and talking to Ra McGuire, lead singer of the Canadian rock band, Trooper. Chris Breen of Macworld magazine will be discussing the pros and cons of Apple’s latest desktops on “Tech Tips,” sponsored by Micromat’s Tech Tool Pro 3.
Peter Cohen of MacCentral.com will also be on the show to give a recap of the Electronics Entertainment Expo. And, last but not least, Hilary Percy has Mac Basics.
The “swag bag” is re-opening with a vengeance, according to host/producer Shawn King. Not only will The Mac Show have copies of Tech Tool Pro 3 to give away, but there’ll be T-shirts from MacSupport.About.com, a copy of Myst III: Exile to be awarded, and a copy of Freehand 10 given out. What’s more, the show officially kicks off the “Wait for Macworld Expo in New York.” Every expo season — and Macworld New York is in July — The Mac Show teams up with IDG to give away Expo Super Passes, valued at US$1200. This time around is no exception.
You can catch The Mac Show this and every Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm Pacific. And you can join in the chat rooms on the
World Without Borders site
or on the dal.net servers on IRC in the #macshowlive Channel.
