Virginia Tech, the Berklee College of Music, Macworld Expo and Other World Computing are spotlighted on Wednesday evening’s
Your Mac Life. Hosted by Shawn King, the weekly QuickTime-Webcast radio show features news and information of interest to Mac users.
Tonight’s show continues a series of reports that will lead up to January’s
Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Calif. Conference chair Paul Kent talks with Berklee College of Music’s David Mash about their plans for the event. Your Mac Life is also offering listeners
special rates on accommodations for the Expo.
Larry O’Connor, CEO of Mac peripheral and parts reseller Other World Computing, will talk about the recently reported issues relating to Panther and FireWire 800, and will tell Your Mac Life’s listeners about what his company has discovered.
Virginia Tech has been the focus of much media and popular attention lately for their creation of a supercomputing array built from more than a thousand Power Mac G5 systems, assembled and put into action in a matter of weeks. The recently published Top500 list shows the array — dubbed “Big Mac” by some — as the third fastest supercomputing system in the world. Tonight’s show will feature Virginia Tech’s Jason Lockhart, who will update listeners on the final results of the G5 cluster.
MacCentral’s Peter Cohen will also be onhand for the latest Mac game news. If you have any questions for tonight’s guests, you’re encouraged to
drop a line.
