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.

Ted Landau and host Chuck Joiner offer some opinions on the lost/stolen iPhone prototype debacle. They discuss it from both a legal and common-sense perspective, covering what was and wasn’t a crime, and the harm that Apple did or didn’t suffer.

Also, the emailing habits of Steve Jobs have been in the news recently; Landau talks about what it says about those who share the emails, Jobs himself, and how it all affects the public’s perception of Apple. Finally, Landau thinks hard drive utilities may be going away, and shares his ideas on what you might want to consider as an alternative.

“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.
