The barbecue grills are fired up, the beer is cold and the fireworks are hot -- which means it's the perfect night for a holiday weekend talkcast! We'll be talking Mac OS X 10.7, as Lion begins to roar in earnest with a GM seed in the wild. If you're already running Lion, you probably can't talk about it... but we're happy to hear from you anyway.
Your calls and questions help make the show the best it can be. To participate, you can use the browser-only TalkShoe client, the embedded Facebook app or download the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for maximum fun, you should call in. For the web UI, just click the TalkShoe Web button on our profile page at 4 HI/7 PDT/10 PM EDT Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines (Viva free weekend minutes!): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8.
If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your Mac, you can connect via the free Blink or X-Lite SIP clients; basic instructions are here. (If you like Blink, the pro version is available in the Mac App Store.) Skype users with SkypeOut credit can call the main TalkShoe number. Talk to you tonight!
