An amazing sequence of technical problems has resulted in my not having a podcast to upload today, which was going to be a celebration of the one-year anniversary of the show. The MacBook Pro that I usually use in Cambridge to prepare the podcast died yesterday. Tonight the MacBook Air was running slowly, so I called Apple Support, where a confident young man led me through a series of steps to speed it up. At the end of an hour the Air was inoperable, and there’s a good chance I will lose everything on the hard drive when I take it to the Apple store tomorrow.
I had a terrific interview on the hard drive with tech blogger and columnist Mike Elgan, along with some fine anniversary audio comments from listeners.
I wanted to put something on the feed to let you know what’s up, and my wife’s Mac Mini was available to do the job. So that’s the story of the one-year un-anniversary of the Kindle Chronicles. Thank you all for listening and supporting the show for the past year. There’s nothing left to do tonight except to curl up in my leather chair with my Kindle and read today’s edition of The Economist.
