Live: MacBreak Weekly Picks Show

MacBreak Weekly 182: There’s An App For That

Direct MP3 Download

What is this?

This is the artifact of Merlin’s participation in Episode 182 of MacBreak Weekly (subscribe). Our first-ever “All Picks” episode. It was chaos. And fun.

So, the stuff below is basically what I was typing during the show, plus a bit of followup (very lightly cleaned up and appended after the recording).

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you dig this stuff as much as I do.

Trying something different.

Watch, listen and reload as MacBreak Weekly does our first ever “All Picks” show. As the show progresses, I’ll post links, screengrabs and commentary here.

Streams live at http://live.twit.tv in 15 minutes (2pm EST; 11am PST)

See you soon.

Lordy, I think all of these are previous picks.

Anybody tried this Quicksilver app? :-)

Okay. Added auto refresh every 3 min. I think. Haven’t done this “HTML” stuff in a while.
