MacTech Live 63: Has Apple Become Anti-Tinkerer?

Published on February 9, 2010 by in Podcast

Special guest Mark Dalrymple and the JoshMeister discuss Mark Pilgrim’s recent article “Tinkerer’s Sunset”.  Pilgrim posits that Apple is losing the tinkerer’s spirit and making it difficult for would-be hackers to dig into their own systems, learn how the machine works, and get into programming and development, particularly when it comes to Apple’s mobile platforms (iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch).  In this episode of the podcast, we get advanced Mac developer Mark Dalrymple’s thoughts on the subject.
