At CES in Las Vegas, we talked to Dr. Lorenzo Maria Bonelli of Rolling Square as they showed off their latest products that are available and some that are coming later this year. They include a laptop charger that you sit your laptop on rather than plugging it in and tracker cards for your wallet that feature long life or replaceable batteries, depending on your preference.

In Las Vegas at Showstoppers at CES, we saw and heard a demo of the technology behind the Miari speaker from SoundFun that was more than surprising. Kai Kitayama talked us through the demo that provided a wider and longer field of sound than you would expect, and how it can enhance the dialog from your TV. (Host’s Note: Audio demos are always difficult in a conference environment, which made this one that much more impressive. Please understand that the in-person experience was truly impressive and worth exploring.)

<p>In the final part of this MacVoices Live! session, the panel of <strong>Chuck Joiner</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Ben Roethig</strong>, <strong>Jeff Gamet</strong> and <strong>Web Bixby</strong><strong> </strong>discuss Goldman Sachs’ reported $1 billion loss on Apple Card. We speculate on other factors like changing interest rates and their foray into the consumer loan business as possible explanations. Just for fun, we consider the idea of Apple potentially acquiring Goldman Sachs to expand into consumer finance. Regulatory challenges and the complexity of multinational operations are covered, as well as the role of existing banks in Apple's international expansion plans for the Apple Card. (Part 3) </p>

<p>The MacVoices Live! panel of <strong>Chuck Joiner</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Ben Roethig</strong>, <strong>Jeff Gamet</strong> and <strong>Web Bixby</strong> went shopping on Amazon Prime Day (who didn’t), and reveal their purchases both tech and non-tech. That led to some discussion of hardware choices past and present, and what effect participating in the annual shopping event has on data collection. This part of the discussion concludes with observations about the adoption rate of Threads. (Part 1) </p>

<p><strong>Ben Roethig</strong> believes the iPad has evolved to be more like a Mac, with mouse and keyboard support, and that that evolution should include the macOS. We debate the benefits and challenges of a touch interface on the Mac, and the future of traditional laptops. How a unified operating system could preserve device strengths while implementing simplicity is discussed with an eye toward security.</p>

<p>In the second part of our discussion with <strong>Joe Kissell </strong>about <strong><a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/digital-legacy/#tab-toc">Take Control of Your Digital Legacy, Second Edition</a>, </strong>Joe talks about the importance of designating a trusted digital executor and consulting professionals for handling digital assets. We recover the risks of relying on third-party services and the need for a backup plan. Practical tips include writing your own obituary and carefully managing passwords. Joe's book on digital legacy offers more detailed information and even a template you can use. (2) </p>

<p>In Part 2 of our conversation about  <strong><a href="https://rockynook.com/shop/image-editing/lightroom/adobe-lightroom/ref/251/?campaign=jccom">Adobe Lightroom: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features</a> </strong>author <strong>Jeff Carlson</strong> explores the usability of Lightroom's features for landscape photography and the masking feature,which allows for precise adjustments without affecting the rest of the image. The importance of understanding Lightroom's capabilities is emphasized, and the Jeff explains how this book aims to guide photographers in approaching their editing process differently. We also touch on Lightroom Classic's plug-in system and its flexibility in integrating with other applications. Jeff shares insights on exporting images from Lightroom, editing them in other programs, and re-importing them versus using third-party plugins within Lightroom. We wrap up by discussing AI's influence on photography. (Part 2) </p>

<p><strong>Joe Kissell</strong> is back to discuss his latest book, <a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/passwords/"><strong>Take Control of Your Passwords</strong></a>. First up is the ever-increasing importance of password hygiene in our digital age as passwords remain an easy target for hackers. We delved into Passkeys, a more secure alternative to traditional passwords, and the recent developments in their adoption, including support from Microsoft, Google, and password managers. Joe also also touched on the challenges of saving Passkeys in third-party tools and the ongoing work being done to solve this issue. (Part 1) </p>

<p>Our conversation with <strong>Rachel Schmitz </strong>on <strong><a href="http://macstockconferenceandexpo.com">The Road to Macstock</a> </strong>outlines her unique approach to the conference’s topic of “Learn”. How living with a geek “rubs off”, lessons from how she and husband <strong>Mike Schmitz </strong>are raising their family in an intentional way, with different approaches to learning and creativity, and more are all part of a different kind of discussion. </p>

<p>Rachel Schmitz is mostly a nerd by association. She has bachelors degrees in both fine arts and theology. She began her photography business in 2006, called the Art of Kairos, specializing in wedding photography and custom designed leather bound albums. Her business pivoted to contract commercial photography the final few years until she closed her business in 2020. Her use of technology is driven by the mission and mantra: Create not Consume!<br /><br />At that point, her focus turned to homeschooling her tribe of 5 children (4 sons and 1 tenacious daughter). She loves learning alongside her children and cultivates insatiable curiosity in them. She launched the Intentional Family podcast with her husband as a solution for endless calls, emails, and pleas for help from the multitude of parents suddenly in a world requiring them to navigate schooling at home in 2020.<br /><br />Unapologetically, Rachel is not on social media.

<p>The MacVoices Live! discussion turns to Apple’s recent App Store purge of outdated files. <strong>Chuck Joiner</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Jim Rea</strong>, <strong>Ben Roethig</strong>, <strong>Jeff Gamet</strong>, and <strong>Guy Serle </strong>discuss the logic behind it, and why more than just old files are no more. Resistance to Apple Pay has some panel members fired up, and Warren Buffet’s divestiture of TSMC stock concerned. (Part 2) </p>

<p>Our latest <strong>Road to <a href="http://macstockconferenceandexpo.com">Macstock</a> </strong>conversation is with cognitive neuroscientist and productivity coach <strong>Brittany Smith</strong>, who will be making her first appearance at the conference. Brittany will be taking a different approach to the topic of “Learn”, and discussing where and how we expend our mental energy to achieve the best results. She gives us a small look at how that thinking integrates with some software tools, as well as providing her thinking on appropriate uses of multitasking. </p>

<p>At NAB, we had an interesting discussion with <strong>Glen Mulcahy</strong>, the Managing Director of <strong><a href="http://mojofest.eu">Mojofest</a>,</strong> about the development of mobile journalism (mojo). How news stories and more get from happening to you has changed a great deal over the years. Glenn talks about those changes, how the iPhone has made things previously impossible a common event, and why there is still a need for crews and specialized gear. </p>

<p>Our CES wrap-up prompted a passionate discussion of what expectations we should have for products exhibited. <strong>Chuck Joiner</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Norbert Frassa</strong>, <strong>Guy Serle</strong>, <strong>Jim Rea</strong>, <strong>Jeff Gamet</strong>, <strong>Brittany Smith</strong> and <strong>Mark Fuccio</strong> debate what fits the mold and why. Next, the panel considers the fact that Apple will soon be using AI to create audiobooks that don’t have or might not get an audio version. Who benefits, who loses? Can AI match a human narrator, or are they two different things? </p>

<p>At <a href="http://ces.tech"><strong>CES</strong></a> in Las Vegas, we found <strong><a href="http://what3words.com">What3Words</a> </strong>in the Automotive Pavilion. PR Manager <strong>Frankie Cowan</strong> explained why they were there, and how their service lets you pinpoint your location down to a 3-meter square using a three-word combination. And that’s anywhere in the world: What3Words has it all mapped out, supports a variety of languages, has an iOS app, and much more. Frankie talks about the adoption of their service by emergency service, how some pop culture icons have adopted them, and more. </p>

Is it Apple being targeted with unreasonable requirements, or are they appeasing their detractors before the requirement becomes reality? (Part 2) </p>

<p>What if your iPhone or iPad could be a a 3D tracking, previz, and virtual production tool? It can! <strong>Joshua Davies</strong>, the founder and CEO of <a href="https://fxhome.com/"><strong>FXhome</strong></a>, introduces us to <strong><a href="https://fxhome.com/">CamTrackAR</a></strong>, their iOS/iPadOS app that does just that. You may have already had a taste if you watched Apple’s <strong>Spring Loaded</strong> event; CamTrackAR was one of the apps featured. Josh talks about why their appearance meant so much to him before digging in to that CamTrackAR can do for video creators who want to incorporate virtual backgrounds and 3D objects into their projects, and how it allows you to take your production workflow into the field. And it is free to get started! </p>

<p>The Apple App Store just had its 12th anniversary week. How time flies! The panel of <strong>Mark Fuccio</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Kelly Guimont</strong>, <strong>Warren Sklar</strong><strong>, </strong>and host <strong>Chuck Joiner </strong>talk about the development of The App Store, its importance to the Apple ecosystem, and how it drove the utility of the iPhone and iPad. The fees Apple charges developers, for both being a developer as well as distributing the apps, sparks an enthusiastic discussion of transparency and services. (Part 1)</p>

<p><strong>Frederick Van Johnson</strong> is a professional photographer host of <a href="https://thisweekinphoto.com"><strong>This Week in Photo</strong></a>, and founder of the TWiP Network - one of the world’s most popular photography-related podcast media properties. Frederick also consults on marketing with a number of photography industry companies. Frederick began his career as a Combat Photojournalist in the United States Air Force, where he served for 8 years, and was decorated many times for photography. Frederick’s unit was among the first in the military to receive, and put into daily action early digital imaging hardware and software. As a result, he was awarded the Air Force Commendation medal for his key role in facilitating the US Air Force transition from film to digital. After the military, Frederick went on to study visual communication at the University of California in Santa Barbara, California. Frederick also studied at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, where he ultimately became Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Frederick was also a key member of team responsible for the development of iPhoto, Apple’s award-winning photo management application. Highly knowledgeable on multiple disciplines of photography, technology, and Internet trends – Frederick is able to discuss how emerging trends and technologies effect and benefit both amateur and professional photographers. Frederick is also author of the popular book “Global Mobile, Connecting without Wires, Walls, or Borders”. Today Frederick lives in Sacramento, California, and continues to practice photography whenever possible.

The content of each announcement, what it means for the product, and even some things that aren’t being talked about anywhere else find their way into the conversation.</p>

MacVoices #19209: St. Clair Software's Jon Gotow on Getting Apps Ready for macOS Catalina

Jon Gotow of St. Clair Software takes a break from coding to discuss the coming transition to the 64-bit macOS Catalina, and what it means for you. What it takes to transition apps from 32-bit to 64-bit, why some apps and developers won’t or can’t make the transition, and what you should expect from developers are all part of our first look at this change that is going to affect everyone who uses a Mac. Jon gives us a status report on all of his apps, shares his thinking on charging for the upgrades, and offers some advice on how to communicate with those who make your mission-critical apps.
