Behind the scenes at MacBreak Weekly and TWiT

Thanks to Leo Laport, Alex Lindsay, and the teams at TWiT and Pixel Corps, I was able to take a look behind the scenes of MacBreak Weekly yesterday. I've already posted about the experience, so here's the video and photos, shot by Martin Reisch.

You can also watch how the final show turned out in between all the meta.

Thanks again, Leo, Alex, Chad, Lisa, and everyone at TWiT!

iMore at Macworld|iWorld 2013: TWiT

Tuesday morning we woke up early and headed over to Blue Bottle for some state-of-the-art-of coffee. If you like coffee and you're ever in San Francisco, it's simply a must-visit. When Apple events are in town, the line out front of Blue Bottle is often a long and filled with geeks as the lines to get into the sessions.

MacBreak Weekly 305: Buy it in Protest

I had the pleasure of joining Leo Laporte, Andy Ihnatko, and Mac OS Ken on MacBreak Weekly today. Leo and the TWiT network are the pioneers of internet radio and television, and MacBreak Weekly and Mac OS Ken are both seminal works in the Apple community, so it was great to be able to sit in on the discussions.

Topics included the new iPhone connector, the smaller iPad, and those poor Apple Store employees.

Check out the video above, or for more streaming and download options, audio and video, hit the link below.

(And thanks as well to Chad for making my MBW debut as gentle as possible.)

Official iPhone Qik App Brings TWiT's Live!

Chief TWiT Leo Laporte just streamed live from his iPhone via the official (non-Jailbreak) version of the Qik App, which he says should be available in the App Store soon.

All the rage last year in the blogsphere, many iPhone users were stuck carrying around a Nokia 95 just for Qik live streaming. Perhaps, no longer!

Check out the recording to get an idea of the quality. Looks like it doesn't handle motion very well, but is otherwise fairly decent. Still, we have to wonder, what will this do to AT&T's "rabbit ear" 3G network?

Either way, we can't wait for this App to drop!

Trism Developer Clears $250K Since App Store Launch

Daring Fireball points to this Twitter from Raven Zachary as a reason why developers will put up with Apple's capricious and communication-challenged App Store:

Trism, the $5 gravity/tilt-assisted iPhone puzzle game by Steve Demeter, has made $250,000 since July 11.

We're pointing to DF because they're right.

More From Kevin: New iPods on Sept. 9 + iTunes 8 to Include Recommendations

Following up his big blog rumor-fest with an appearance on This Week in Tech (TWiT), Kevin Rose filled in a few details, including that the supposed new Nano, face-lifted iPod Touch, and 2.1 firmware (presumably) would drop on September 9 at a Special Apple Event (or perhaps that the invitation for the special event would be issued on the 9th, it wasn't crystal clear).

Kevin Rose: AT&T Has to Clear Firmware Updates + Dvorak on Malicious Health Rumors

One of the most important aspects of the iPhone is how it's breathed the air of change into long stodgy, backwards thinking mobile cellular providers. We can argue whether its been less effective post iPhone 3G where subsidies have returned, but either way Apple fairly neatly removed the carrier middleman from its usual intrusive position in the smartphone space. App Store is clearly the crowning example thus far, but frequent firmware updates is sometimes likewise cited.
