The latest edition of 
”MacNotables” (, a podcast that serves as home to Mac personalities who will comment on the latest news and opinions in the Mac community, is available.

Like most of us, Mac expert Ted Landau is looking forward to ordering an iPad, but in the meantime, has been looking at the questions of what configuration to order, especially when it comes to connectivity. He discusses the issues surrounding tethering of your Apple devices (and AT&T data plans), why the options are what they are, and what may make sense for you.

Landau also discusses his experiences in comparing Google Voice with the iPhone’s Visual Voicemail, and why the latter works better for him, the uses, now and in the future of augmented reality apps, and some of the effects of a maturing iPhone platform. Then he turns his attention to Apple’s purging of over 5,000 apps with alleged sexual content from the Apple App Store and the impact it could have on the iPhone and iPad platforms.

“MacNotables” panelists include Christopher Breen, Bryan Chaffin, Jim Dalrymple, Adam Engst, Tonya Engst, Andy Ihnatko, Joiner, Ted Landau, Jason Snell, Bob LeVitus, Dan Frakes and Yours Truly. Not all panelists can make all shows due to scheduling conflicts.
