Tonight’s featured guest on The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac, will be Alan Oppenheimer and Charles Whitaker, authors of “Internet Security for Your Macintosh.” They’ll be talking about Internet security risks.
The special guest will be Todd Tieman, Olympus’ marketing support representative, who’ll discuss the Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom Digital Camera. During the “Mac Basics” segment, The Mac Show gang will compare the D-40 and the Epson PhotoPC 3100z. Plus, Chucker Joiner — user group correspondent and editor of the MUG Center, an online resource for Mac user groups — will serve up all the MUG happenings at next month’s Macworld San Francisco.
In the Tech Tips segment, sponsored by Micromat’s Tech Tool Pro 3, Shawn King, host/producer of The Mac Show, chats with David Pogue, “New York Times” columnist and author of a new book, “Mac OS X: The Missing Manual.”
In “Mac Media Pro,” Mark Stevens will talk with Tom McDonald, Apple’s product manager for Final Cut Pro 3. FCP 3 is the latest version of Apple’s high-end video editing application. See our Dec. 4 story for details.
Not only will The Mac Show give away the last of the Exhibit, Pro and User Conference Passes to Macworld San Francisco, they’ll also be giving away swag like T3Hubs from DrBott, iClocks from Applelinks, and copies of the Slick Transitions and Effects from GeeThree, hubs and remotes from Keyspan, assorted T-shirts, and more. You still have time to win the expo passes, but King says you have to hurry to The Mac Show Web site.
You can catch The Mac Show every Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. (Pacific). And you can join the show gang in the chat rooms on the World Without Borders site or on the dal.net servers on IRC in the #macshowlive Channel. By the way, The Mac Show won’t broadcasting Dec. 26 while, according to King.
