August 2, 2014 — John Martellaro and Kirk McElhearn

We present John Martellaro, Senior Editor, Analysis & Reviews for The Mac Observer and a columnist for The Street, who discusses such topics as how Apple’s “secret war” against Samsung is working, why Apple could get more mileage out of its “slipstream” Mac upgrades, which involve minor refreshes and more favorable pricing, why Apple is going “back to the future” to fight Google, and how the new Mac Pro can use OpenCL parallel processing to explore black holes and perform other high-end scientific computing tasks faster than ever.

You’ll also hear from commentator Kirk McElhearn, Kirk McElhearnMacworld’s “iTunes Guy,” who will explain why he thinks it’s time for Apple to terminate the Newsstand app with extreme prejudices, the possibility that Iliad, a French telecom company, might buy T-Mobile, why you should be cautious about installing the OS X Yosemite Public Beta, and more about the potential impact of the recent Apple/IBM marketing deal.
