It’s technology at the front, and music at the end as this week, Kirk, Tim & Jim start off discussing some of the things that they’re looking forward to from Apple: the new Lion upgrade to OS X, the iOS5 for mobile devices, and the iCloud.
Turns out that there is some skepticism as to how well the iMatch service will actually work for any of them, and Kirk challenges Jim to a Metadata Throwdown.
After that, Jim has the first of his Musical Moments to Die For: The Hold Steady – “The Swish,” and the MediaLoper Disclaimer is read, in hopes that the newly discovered Moldovan rip-off of Medialoper Bebop ceases and desists.
Also, Kirk shares a few of the artists that are currently in his musical mix: Charles Bradley, Dexter Gordon & The Sky Drops.
Oh, and One More Thing:
Tim likes to spy on himself using Splashtop, Kirk is amused by Bitcoin, and Jim is really enjoying the (now over) NBA Playoffs.
Medialoper Bebop Episode 7: Lions and iClouds and Beers was recorded on Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 4:00PM PDT via CallGraph over Skype. It was edited by Jim in Audacity.
The opening and closing music is “Big Hand on the 7” by our close personal friends, The Miss Alans.
No lions were harmed in the recording of this podcast. At least one beer was.
