MacNotables #1232: Ted Landau Plays Letterpress, Doesn’t Buy an iPad Mini, and Picks Star Wars

Ted Landau has a storied history as a gamer, which makes him the perfect person to explain the wildfire spread of Loren Brichter’s new game, Letterpress. What makes it a great game, and why it appeals to him is where we open, and then move on to why Ted didn’t get an iPad mini. Whether this is a new productivity tool, who it is for, and what Ted wants before he will hand over his credit card are all revealed, as well as Ted’s pick for Star Trek vs. Star Wars.

This edition of MacNotables is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the new PDFpen for iPad.
