Hey guys, I just bought a new MacBook Pro and was wanting to get some advice on what are some must have apps.  I only got the 13″ Core i5 model but couldn’t pass up the under $1000 price they had on it at Micro Center. You may want to pass on to your listeners that at least until March 17th they have the $1199 13″ Core i5 Macbook Pro for $999.99.  And Apple stores will price match since it is from an authorized reseller.  That is actually where I picked mine up at.  I like the Apple store experience and living in Missouri I didn’t want a dollar of my tax money going to Kansas, and that’s where Micro Center is.  Since the sale is on Micro Center’s website you may be able to get the price match at Best Buy or elsewhere.  Thanks for the great podcast, keep up the good work.

Hey guys,

Any thoughts concerning the rumors that Apple may be moving towards capacitive home buttons on the iPod Touch 5th gen?

http://www.macrumors.com/2011/04/05/leaked-5th-gen-ipod-touch-images/

Does this suggest that the next iPhone (assuming its called iPhone 5) may make the switch as well?

What effect, if any, do you see such a change having in regards to custom case replacements and modding?

Love the show by the way.

Thanks,

Patrick Virgadamo
