Allison Hartley has  been a loud and proud Apple fan person since buying her first iPod Touch in mid-2010. When the iPhone became available on her carrier, she immediately bought that as well. From the very first, she was excited by the fact that, as a blind person, she had complete access to a mainstream device which, as the iOS platform has continued to mature, has come to replace many standalone assistive technology devices on which she used to rely. These include but are not limited to book readers, devices for identifying money, barcode readers, and note taking devices. In early 2013, she switched from a PC exclusively to the Mac at home. Once again, Allison was blown away by how easily and quickly she could accomplish tasks like email, browsing, keeping up on social media, audio recording and editing, and document creation. She is the co-host of the Tech Doctor Podcast.  

Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is co-host of The Aftershow, makes regular appearances on the Daily Observations Podcast and the British Tech Network and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter

Neal Pann is an architect and sole proprietor of Neal A. Pann, Architect . He's the creator and

MacVoices #17081: Quick Take - Pandora Premium with Kirk McElhearn  

On this first edition of MacVoices Quick Take, we examine the new Pandora Premium music service with Kirk McElhearn. Is Pandora playing catch-up, or improving their already hugely popular music service with on-demand options? How much of a problem is their limited global territory? Is their Music Genome Project foundation enough to get you to switch, or to pay for a second music service? Why don’t Google Play and Amazon come to mind discussing subscription music services? These are just some of the points of discussion as we look at this new aspect of Pandora.

MacVoices #17070: Bryan Chaffin on Millennials, Apple, Politics, and The Truth According To Bryan  

MacNotable Bryan Chaffin of The Mac Observer books a little time in therapy to talk about CES and Millennials before diving into a lively discussion of why Apple needs to be involved in politics. Using examples both obvious and surprising, Bryan makes his case and debates the performance of Apple as a company and and Tim Cook as CEO in an environment that is radically different that anything Steve Jobs had to deal with. Listen and consider “the truth according to Bryan”.

Michael Potter  is the Executive Producer of  For Mac Eyes Only. Mike's love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High's Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies … but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.

The first Macintosh that Mike could truly call his own, was a sad little Mac Plus he picked up from a garage sale for $20 with the intention of turning it into a Macquarium. When he flipped the switch and found it still happily booted, he didn't have the heart to gut it and, instead, nursed the little guy back to health by installing a new hard drive and upgraded SuperDrive. A similarly rescued Macintosh SE/30 soon followed.

Since that time, in addition to the two early Macintosh's, Mike's stable of Macs has grown to include: a PowerMac 7600; two early G3 iMacs (strawberry and dalmation); the G4 Cube with matching 17″ CRT; a 17″ G5 iMac; a PowerMac G5; a G4 Mac Mini; his daughter's white MacBook; a 2006 17″ MacBook Pro; a 1st-Gen Mac Pro; a 2011 15″ MacBook Pro; a 2010 21.5″ iMac; a Late-2012 27″ iMac; and his wife's 13″ MacBook Pro. And an iPad.

In the time since his weekly Mac podcast was first unleashed to a wary public in the Fall of 2006, over 290 episodes of For Mac Eyes Only, and more than 135 Quick Tips and other Special Segments have been produced to date. In 2013, For Mac Eyes Only launched a new Members Only portion of the site called FMEO Plus featuring exclusive video, audio, and more.

Through it all, Mike's favorite part of producing the show continues to be the opportunity to make new friends within the ever-growing community of Apple fanatics.
