With all the OS X excitement of the past week, The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac, has a little reminder that the best of technology doesn’t reach all of us.
Mike Cassidy of the San Jose Mercury News has been following the story of Myra Jodie, a little girl who won an iMac in a contest but still can’t get on the Internet. You can listen in on tonight’s broadcast to and find out why.
The Mac Show’s “Newsmaker of the Week” is Paul Johnston, general manager of Renaissance Distributors in New Zealand where they had the first official Mac OS X launch on the planet. On Tech Tips, sponsored by Tech Tool Pro 3, “Dr. Mac” Bob LeVitus will talk about OS X, Peter Cohen of MacCentral will have all the gaming news, and Mark Stevens will talk to Steve Martin of the DV Creators in Mac Media Pro. As always, 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.
