Mac Pundit Showdown XII

If a podcast tackles everything from Mac OS X Lion to the upcoming Steve Jobs biography to the scourge of trees around Apple's proposed expansion in Cupertino, you can bet you're listening to another edition of the Macworld Pundit Showdown.

We've assembled a panel of Mac experts--editorial director Jason Snell, executive editor Jonathan Seff, senior editor Dan Frakes, and senior associate editor Dan Moren--to field rapid-fire questions about current events affecting technology in general and Apple in particular. Find out who finishes on top in this four-way battle for pundit supremacy.

Show Notes

We explain all the rules to the Pundit Showdown--including the excellent program we lifted the format from--way back in the shownotes for Macworld Podcast #138.

One of the questions in our quiz alludes to an article from our dear friend--and one-time Macworld staffer--Mathew Honan, as he exhorts technology writers to find a different cliché. (You can thank us for sparing you from typing the words "Mathew Honan sexy" into your search engine some other time.)
