Well I've been thinking about this ever since I started listening to podcast a little more than three years ago, but I really want to do a podcast! It started after I got my iMac, and started downloading podcast for my iPod Touch I had at the time. I've had trouble trying to decide what I would do a podcast about though. I love tech, but don't know a lot of the "how to tear down & reassemble" of the industry. I love food, and know a lot about it! I also love photography, and music. I…Continue
If you've looked at my photo gallery here on the Retro MacCast site, then you've seen that I have one of the 22" original acrylic framed Cinema Displays! I bought it last year, and have loved it ever since hooking it up. The only problem has been that it's not the display I thought I'd bought! I thought I was buying the 23" High Definition version of the display I ended up with. I got it at a great price: 22" Cinema Display, matching 15" Studio Display, and the ADC to DVI adapter all for…Continue
So it's been a little bit over 3 weeks since I got my hands on an iPad 2 on launch night! I've been using it almost everyday since then, even replacing my iMac as my normal web browsing machine. I'm even doing some of my own writing on Pages for iPad, instead of using MS Word. And it has a lot of really fun stuff on it too!! I can now see why Steve Jobs…Continue
On Thursday February 24th, Apple announced a much anticipated update to it's MacBook Pro line of notebook computers! Apple updates most of it's products on a regular basis, many being about a year apart. It's been a little longer than normal since Apple has refreshed most of the MacBook line, though they did update the MacBook Air back in October of last…Continue

Well friends, I finally have bought another Macintosh!! It's taken almost a year since I bought my TAM, but there is a new Mac in the house. I had been looking for an older Mac to serve as a computer for my mom. She is intimidated about using my iMac, even though I set up an account for her on it. I had said that I'd find an older one for her to use, but she didn't think she needed one. As I looked more, and showed some of them to her, she kind of got more interested.
If you haven't been to my page here on RMC's Ning site, then you might not know that I live in Springfield, Missouri. I was having trouble sleeping late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning, and I thought I'd check some e-mail. I had recently found that I was getting…
I'm sure that by now most of The RMC Community has heard the news that Steve Jobs is taking another Medical Leave of Absence from Apple. Steve has had several Health Issues over the past 6 years ranging from Pancreatic Cancer, to a Liver Transplant, to this newest concern. As before COO of Apple Inc, Tim Cook, will shepard the company in Steve's absence. Steve Jobs has asked that people respect his privacy in the matter, and I tend to agree!
We all love the two Steve's…Continue

OK I doubt that it's just me, but maybe it is?? The local Apple re-seller that I buy most my Mac stuff from uses an older iMac as their cash register. So that got me to thinking, "What if the store I work for used Macs??"
Unfortunately my company uses Dell computeres, running Windows CE. I think that if we used Macs, then maybe the computeres wouldn't be a temperamental as they can be at times! I work in the receiving department of my store here in Springfield, MO. We…Continue
I just wanted to quickly wish all my friends, and everyone else on The Retro MacCast site a very Happy New Year!! I hope that we all enjoy working with our Macs this year wether they are brand new iMacs & Mac Pros, or they be older Power Macs or a few lucky 128k Macs!!
What will the coming year hold for us in the Apple Universe?? Many people expect the announcement of The iPad 2.0 this January. Many have been hoping that Apple will make the switch to USB 3, but that…Continue

To explain where I have been, I've been with out internet for a lot of the Summer! I just got it back this November, right after Thanksgiving. I had a little bit of a time getting it hooked up, but now I'm back in business! I'd like to…Continue
