Send Article to a Friend

Our main ExtraBIT this week is an announcement of the upcoming Mac Computer Expo for those near San Francisco, but Adam Engst has also been a guest on a couple of podcasts recently, talking both about what’s new (the iPhone 5) and what’s old (TidBITS itself).

Mac Computer Expo in Petaluma, CA on 6 October 2012 -- For those looking for a day of in-depth Mac and iOS geekery near San Francisco, it’s time once again for the Mac Computer Expo, in Petaluma, CA. Organized by the indefatigable Lorene Romero, this 19th running of MCE will feature presentations by such Apple community luminaries as Photoshop painter extraordinaire Bert Monroy, Chris Breen of Macworld, Jeff Gamet of the Mac Observer, photography guru Derrick Story, Adam Christianson of MacCast, author Tom Negrino, and many more. Plus, you can even bring your dead electronics to be recycled properly! MCE will take place from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, 6 October 2012; tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door, and parking is free.

Adam Engst Recaps History in A Good Talk Show -- Alex Arena has a new podcast called A Good Talk Show, and Adam Engst joined him recently to talk about the history of TidBITS and the Take Control ebook series, along with why it’s important to focus on what’s important rather than what’s trendy. Not much new ground, but it was a good conversation, and worth listening to when you have some down time.
