MacBreak Weekly 8: Wax On, Wax Off

Hosts: Leo Laporte, Merlin Mann, Alex Lindsay, and Scott Bourne

Get a better night's sleep with today's show. We talk about Apple's podcast grab, Aperture 1.5, 802.11n in iMacs, Cingular and the iPhone, and Core 2 MacBooks.

Running time: 01:14:00

In which Alex is still on about the notional iPhone (and its current-day antecedents), Leo loves his lumber-swinging MacPro, Scott is completely full of beans, and everyone rags me mercilessly about my fondness for new age nap software.

Show note: that site for making one barcoded discount-club card to rule them all? Via Lifehacker comments, check out Just One Club Card. Haven't tried it myself, but it looks promising.

Merlin's picture


Merlin Mann is an independent writer, speaker, and broadcaster. He’s best known for being the guy who created the website you’re reading right now. He lives in San Francisco, does lots of public speaking, and helps make cool things like You Look Nice Today, Back to Work, and Kung Fu Grippe. Also? He’s writing this book, he lives with this face, he suffers from this hair, he answers these questions, and he’s had this life. So far.

Merlin’s favorite thing he’s written in the past few years is an essay entitled, “Cranking.”

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
