Interview with Steve Abernethy, CEO of SquareTrade

Depending on the product, many of us have differing opinions about gadget insurance and warranties, extended or otherwise.

One name that always pops up in the discussion is SquareTrade. Earlier this week, Steve Abernethy, CEO of SquareTrade, sat down to talk to Shawn about the company and the kinds of warranties they offer.

Interview with Brian Lemelman, President and CEO of Third Rail Mobility

Always on the look out for cool tech and gadgets, we heard from Mike Rose of TUAW about a very interesting backup battery for the iPhone 4.

A few phone calls later and Your Mac Life was talking to Brian Lemelman, President and CEO of Third Rail Mobility.

Brian talked about the company and their very interesting "Third Rail System". We hope you enjoy the interview. You can even win your very own Third Rail System by answering this trivia question: "When was Third Rail Mobility founded?"

Music We Love

For those of you who listen to Your Mac Life, on last week's show we talked about and asked the audience about how they discover new music and what music they like. Music is such a personal thing and everyone has different tastes. We talked about how, for so many people, the kind or style of music we like tends to be set in stone once we hit our mid-twenties.

So this site's goal is to open ourselves up to music - genres, bands, artists, styles - that we may not naturally gravitate to. I encourage you to, for example, listen to a country music recommendation even if you don't like country. Tune in to some jazz even if you're not a fan. Try some metal just because. You never know what you might find.

And please - contribute yourself. We all have favorite singers and bands. Tell people what yours are! Send email to MWL [at] yourmaclifeshow [dot] com with as much of a description of the band or the artist as you can - URLs are very helpful - and I'll post it here. If you'd like, you can become a Site Contributor and we can give you permission to post on your own!
