January 17, 2015 — Adam Engst and Bryan Chaffin

On this week’s all-star episode, tech writer/editor Adam Engst, of TidBITS and Take Control Books, discusses a variety of subjects with Gene. First up is Gene’s recent SSD upgrade on his aging iMac, which involved a long, annoying installation process that started with plucking the display glass from the chassis with suction cups. This leads to a wider discussion about the difficulty or impossibility of installing upgrades on most Macs, along with the recent complaints about the supposed decline in Apple software quality.

You’ll also hear from Bryan Chaffin, co-founder and co-publisher of The Mac Observer, who will offer a pithy response to rumors that Apple is going to soon release a 12-inch MacBook Air with a single peripheral port. He’ll also cover the complaints about serious bugs with OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, and, as our resident watch expert, deliver more of his feelings about the forthcoming Apple Watch.
