Of Stevemails and stevedores: Talkcast tonight, live at 10 pm ET

Filed under: TUAW Business, PodcastsYou have to hand it to Gawker writer Ryan Tate; he wasn't timid about giving his new penpal a piece of his mind, salty language and all. Tate let loose with a full-throated defense of iPad pornography, overworked print publishers and the freedom to write once and run anywhere. Of course, in this particular case he was sending aggrieved notes to Steve Jobs -- and, most surprising, Steve chose to write back. Repeatedly. In the wee hours of the night.

Steve's defense of Apple's approach toward Flash on iPhone/iPad and the choices Apple is making about the future of its platforms makes for good reading; Tate's decision to run the emails in a post is one I can only describe as "chutzpadik," although he notes that Steve must be aware that many of his casual one-liners are making news in short order.

[Side note, if Apple hasn't productized Steve's killer spam filter yet, they darn well should get started on that. Unless it's a rotating panel of interns -- that would be difficult to scale.]

All that to say, we're fortunate to have our special time together later tonight on the Talkcast to chat about Stevemails, MacBook rumors, MobileMe betas, Steam releases and more! Join us, won't you?

To participate on TalkShoe, you can use the browser-only client, the embedded Facebook app, or 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 advantage 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. iPhone users may prefer the iPhone-optimized Talkshoe site found here.

If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your computer, you can connect via the free Gizmo or X-Lite SIP clients; basic instructions are here. Talk with you then!
