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.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the brand new PDFpen 6 and PDFpenPro 6, as  PDFpen for iPad  and PDFpen for iPhone.
