MacVoices #1399: The MacJury Examines Mailbox, RSS and Google Reader, and Kevin Lynch’s Move to Apple
The most recent MacJury debated the utilities of the Mailbox app mailbox and discussed the usefulness and longevity of RSS, especially as it relates to the soon-to-be gone Google Reader. Online identities, SEO and Kevin Lynch’s move from Adobe to Apple were part of the deliberations with Peter Cohen, Dori Smith, Brett Terpstra and host Chuck Joiner.
Peter Cohen started working with Jim Dalrymple after his site, MacGaming, became part of MacCentral. They worked together at Macworld, where Jim supervised Peter for many years. In his position as Senior Editor, Peter posted and edited daily news on the MacCentral and Macworld.com Web sites. Peter wrote the monthly Game Room column for Macworld magazine and contributed countless other reviews and articles over the years. After leaving Macworld in September, 2009, Peter immediately reunited with Jim as The Loop‘s executive editor. Peter also continues to do a variety of freelance work for online and print publications including Mac|Life, MacFormat, MacUser (UK) and Tap! Peter is also an accomplished podcaster â€“ a co-host and co-founder of Angry Mac Bastards, a weekly podcast that rebuffs some of the more questionable Apple-centric news and analysis posted to the Web. Peter is also frequently featured on other podcasts: he’s appeared on The MacJury, iGame Radio, the Tech Night Owl Live, International Mac Podcast, TUAW Talkcast and many others. (From The Loop)
