We talk to a developer whose company is turning out some interesting third-party apps for both the Mac and the iPhone on this episode of the Macworld Podcast. We also tackle the world of gaming, in the form of this week’s E for All Expo.
There’s also the small matter of an official ship date for
Mac OS X 10.5. So it’s a very eclectic slate of topics.
We start off with an interview between Macworld.com executive editor Philip Michaels and senior editor Peter Cohen about
E for All, the event for gaming enthusiasts which begins this Thursday in Los Angeles. Then I spend some time talking to
Andrew Welch about some of the things his company has been working on lately.

In my round-up of the week’s news at the beginning of the podcast, I mention
the October 26 release date for Leopard
and spend some time dwelling on
the 300-plus new features
Apple is touting in this release. I also spend some time looking at Apple’s decision to
drop the price of DRM-free music to 99 cents per download.
Peter Cohen has already previewed the E for All Expo, both in
his blog. Check out the
