A user group’s birthday and a recent Adobe-related controversy will be featured on tonight’s edition of
Your Mac Life, the Internet show about all things Mac.
Washington Apple Pi User Group is celebrating its 25th anniversary on April 26, and Your Mac Life host-producer Shawn King will be speaking at the event. Tonight King will talk with Dave Ottalini, the vice president of publicity for Washington Apple Pi, about the group’s longevity and the activities is has lined up for the coming year.
In the past several days there’s been a big hubbub over a now-removed Adobe Web page that touted a Wintel system as better than a Mac for rendering compositions in After Effects 5.5. The page has since been removed, but David Nagel of the Digital Video Editing Web site has
written a response that says the problem isn’t with Apple’s hardware, but Adobe’s software. The issue will be discussed on tonight’s YML.
Two weeks ago, Other World Computing announced that they had launched FasterMac.Net, a Mac only Internet Service Provider. Larry O’Connor, the CEO of OWC, will be on hand to tell why the company has taken this step and what the benefits are for Mac users.
As always, my MacCentral compadre, Peter Cohen, will join Your Mac Life to talk about the latest Mac gaming news. If you have questions for any of tonight’s guests,
e-mail them to King.
You can catch Your Mac Life every Wednesday evening from 5:30-8 p.m. (Pacific). You can also join one of the two Chat Rooms that run during the live show — on the
World Without Borders site or on the dedicated IRC Server at irc.netmug.org in the #yourmaclife Channel. If you have a high speed Internet connection, you can access
the live video stream during the Your Mac Life broadcast through QuickTime, too.
