Sure, Apple gear can be expensive, especially when you compare it to the junk other companies sell.

Coming June 25 on The Tech Night Owl LIVE (www.technightowl.com/radio/): We feature cutting-edge commentator Daniel Eran Dilger, of Roughly Drafted Magazine and AppleInsider. Hell talk about such topics as the the current state of the platform wars. Daniel covers the open source nature of Google’s Android mobile OS, and the ongoing problems with fragmentation. This means that critical security fixes, including system updates, are usually not available to most users of Android gear. In response to a column suggesting that Google give up on open source and try to emulate Apple’s proprietary approach, Daniel explains how other tech companies are often following Apple without success.

You’ll also hear from Bryan Chaffin, co-founder and co-publisher of The Mac Observer. The bill of fare this week includes possible changes in Macs over the next few years, and some talk about the future of the platform. Will there come a time in our lifetimes where Macs have been completely replaced by something new and better? Bryan will also discuss the controversy over rumors that Apple plans to ditch the headphone jacks on the next iPhone, presumably the iPhone 7, and rely on the Lightning port for such connections. He’ll explain why it’s not going to be bad news if it happens. He’ll also talk about watchOS 3, and whether the forthcoming update for the Apple Watch will allow people who merely like the device to learn to love it.

So is the Mac on life support — or does it have many years left?

So its Apple engaged in a secret plot to earn a couple of dollars in profits from ditching headphone jacks? Really?

If you won't update to Windows 10, don't worry, Microsoft may just do it anyway.

Coming June 26 on The Paracast (www.theparacast.com): Gene and Chris present Robert Damon Schneck, author of ‘The Bye Bye Man And Other Strange-But-True Tales.” From the liner notes: “Here is the authentically terrifying, true-life story recounted by historian Robert Damon Schneck in a chapter of his classic underground collection of weird Americana, which formed the basis for the major motion picture, The Bye Bye Man. The movie is set for release worldwide on December 9, 2016. The discussion also includes “The President’s Vampire,” another chapter and the original title of the book, and sidesteps into the UFO and Shaver mysteries. Caution: Due to the lurid nature of the conversation in the final two segments, we suggest you not have a meal while listening. Robert will also be featured as a special guest on the accompanying episode of After The Paracast.

There are still so-called tech pundits who imagine nothing useful happened at Apple's WWDC earlier this month.

Because Apple is usually not first with a feature doesn't mean it's second best.
