The Mac & Forth Show 295 - Madden Goes Virtual
Once again Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to discuss the week's Apple and tech-related news. Karl gets a new tech toy and it’s not even Apple related.

The Mac & Forth Show 294 - Tim At Ten
Back once again, Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to discuss the week's Apple and tech-related news. Tim Cook has been steering Apple for ten years, we reflect on his time as CEO. Apparently someone thinks if Apple doesn’t produce a folding iPhone this year then Apple is screwed…alrighty then. Google pays big once again to remain the default search option on Safari, luckily it’s easy to change and OnlyFans manage to annoy their creators and users but luckily there may be a happy ending.

The Matter smart home standard gets delayed. Apple appears to be having some employee problems. SharePlay gets delayed and Apple appears to capitulate on its mobile Safari changes.

The Mac & Forth Show 292 - Who’s Who?
Another week has passed so Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to discuss the week's Apple and tech-related news. Apple has caused a bit of a stir regarding the privacy of photos in iOS15, but is it as problematic as some are making it out to be? Spotify has cancelled Airplay 2, or has it? Apple Arcade now boasts 200 games, and we ‘hopefully’ clear up something that has been confusing one of our listeners. All this, and slightly more, on this week’s episode.

The Mac & Forth Show 291 - Mark & Forth
This week Alan, Dean, Steve are joined by guest host for the show, Mark Chappel, to discuss the week's Apple and tech-related news. YouTube and Spotify look to be adding cheaper subscriptions for their services. You can now get a separate Touch-ID keyboard but it’s not cheap. Apple Store App Clips make it easier than ever to walk out of a store and look like you’re a thief, plus we finally discover the truth about the Ted Lasso curry scene.
