Talkcast tonight, 10pm ET: Holiday cheer, Apple-style


   If Apple fans were shopping for a CEO-worthy Christmas gift (really, what do you get for the man who can buy everything?), they can stand down now.

   He may not have taken the front cover, but <a data-cke-saved-href="http://" href="http://" http:="""" 2012="" 12="" 19="" runner-up-tim-cook-the-technologist="" "="">Tim Cook's selection as a runner-up for Time Magazine's Person of the Year</a> certainly will warm hearts and stockings over Cupertino way. In some ways it's best <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">he wasn't selected over President Barack Obama</a>; it would have made for <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">a particularly awkward iPad mini ad.</a></p> <p> We've only got two days left before Christmas, and if you're still looking for gift ideas (sorry, <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">iPad mini stock is all booked up</a>) or just need an hour's break from kith and kin, we're here for you. We'll talk Tim Cook, holiday plans, and generally kick back and relax. It'll be fun.</p><p>As mentioned on the show last week, we'll also be accepting entries into our Sci-Fi Holiday Carol contest; prizes will be awarded for both lyrical composition and performance. The best "Cylon Night, Holy Night" will get a snazzy iPhone 5 case from Speck, so warm up those vocal cords!</p><p>To participate live during the show, you can use the <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">browser-only Talkshoe client</a>, the embedded <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">Facebook app</a>, or download the classic <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">TalkShoe Pro Java client</a>; however, the best way to have your voice heard is to call in.</p> <p> For the web UI, just click the Talkshoe Web button on <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">our profile page</a> at 4 HI/7 PDT/10 pm EDT Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines (viva free weekend minutes!): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8.</p> <p> If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your Mac, you can connect via the free <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">X-Lite</a> or other SIP clients (aside from Skype or Google Voice), <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">basic instructions are here.</a> Talk to you tonight!</p><p></p><p></p><p></p><br><p></p><br><p></p><br></p><br></p>Talkcast tonight, 10pm ET: Holiday cheer, Apple-style originally appeared on TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Sun, 23 Dec 2012 18:30:00 EST.  Please see our terms for use of feeds.Source | Permalink | Email this | Comments
