MacBites is the UK based podcast for all things Apple related, presented by Elaine Giles and Mike Thomas (aka The MacBites Crew).

Through the podcast, website and newsletter, we bring you tips and tricks and valuable first hand experiences of the Mac platform, iPhone, iPad, iPod and AppleTV … and anything else Apple may tempt us with.

As well as the podcast, the legendary MacBites Live chatroom is THE place to be when there’s an Apple announcement. Elaine, Mike and The MacBiters enjoy the friendly, vibrant environment to chat and debate about the latest news from Cupertino.

MacBites The iBook takes you on a journey from October 2007, when MacBites began, through to January 2012. Here’s just a few highlights of the book:
