THE Mac Podcast Getting to the Core of All Things Apple!

MacBites Live

The legendary MacBites Live chatroom is THE place to be when there’s an Apple announcement
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

iBooks Author, a tool for creating eBooks, was released by Apple in January 2012. Within two weeks of the launch, Elaine had created an eBook (or iBook as Apple like to call it) of almost 100 pages that showcased all the great features of the application.

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:

Go behind the scenes at MacBites HQ, listen to the best of the out-takes (there’s some hilarious ones in there), relive software and hardware launches and get to see Mike’s feet and Elaine’s lips!
