Microsoft ads tweaking Mac buyers as wacky, spendthrift, fashion-focused "cool kids." The paper of record goes after the iPhone. Pirates at the gates of the App Store. Yes, that smell in the air is the familiar fragrance "Eau d' Pomme Retour" -- the springtime scent of Apple-bashing.
It's time to come and hang out where everybody knows your name, or at least your Talkshoe handle: the TUAW talkcast is back tonight after a week's hiatus (we're all feeling much better, thanks ever so). Join us at 10 pm ET tonight for a roundtable discussion (including your questions, comments, and rants) covering the Apple news of the week -- including the range of naysayers going after the Apple brand with gusto.
To participate on TalkShoe, you can use the browser-only client, or you can try out the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for maximum fun, you should call in. For the web UI, just click the "TalkShoe Web" button on our profile page at 10 pm Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VOIP lines (take advantange of your free cellphone weekend minutes if you like): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *-8. Talk with you then!
Recording support for the talkcast is provided by Call Recorder from ecamm networks.
