On the third episode for Series 3, Clinton is joined by Rob Griffiths to discuss the effects of Apple’s aggressive upgrade strategy. We discuss what we didn’t like about Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, why we didn’t upgrade and what it’s like to be version a or two of OS X behind, both from a users’ perspective and a developers’ perspective.
Also discussed on the show, our thoughts on Yosemite, problems with the Mac App Store, sandboxing and the benefits and drawbacks of software updates.
Thanks, for joining me on the show, Rob, I had a great time talking to you.
Rob also works with Peter Maurer at Many Tricks to create great applications and utilities that make working on your Mac easier.
