Today's theme is...... BASEBALL'S BACK!


  • Apple CEO Tim Cook spotted at video game designer Valve's headquarters in Bellvue, WA
    • thx to Tony Vitale for sending. He says "Here I go again , pushing my theory that Apple is developing a gaming iPod , not a 7.85" iPad but a iPod aimed right at the heart of the gaming market. The pieces are all falling into place."
    • Valve maintains the Steam gaming platform, which distributes over 1,400 games to an audience of over 30 million active users.
    • In 2010 Valve announced it was bringing Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Team Fortress 2, to the Mac for 1st time. It also announced it would simultaneously release Portal 2 for the Mac and Windows that winter.




  • Hey Leo and Sarah, in episode 64 you guys covered the MadPad app on the show and I found a real use case of this. In this video Chiddy Bang, made up of Xaphoon and Chiddy use the app to create a beat based on their song "Ray Charles". No offense to Sarah, but I think we can all agree it's better than what she made in that episode. Thanks for all the shows and I'll be watching live on Thursday.

iPT Flashback:


"I recently bought Keynote for the iPad to for presentation at the United States Institute for Theatre Technology national conference in Long Beach two weeks ago. After the presentation a student of mine informed me that if you are using Keynote you can hold you finger on the screen and a red laser like dot appears on the screen and any external monitor. So you dont need a laser pointer for the presentation, I just wish I would have know that before the session.

"Sarah and Leo,

I've compared SoundHound and Shazam, and I think you chose the weaker app to highlight this week. SoundHound easily identified the Jump5 track that stumped Shazzam on the show. I can't recall the last time SoundHound couldn't correctly name a song. And I've been repeatedly disappointed in those TV shows that tell you to Shazzam an episode; virtually nothing extra or worthwhile comes up. For me, SoundHound is the winner in this category.
