Looks like Siracusa does not use more than one monitor because otherwise, how can he make his apps stay in their own spaces/desktops?
I, too, am curious about Siracusa’s monitor setup. Does he use more than one? How big? Manufacturer and model? Does he recommend it?
It’s been a minute since I’ve regularly listened to ATP, but I believe he uses a single Pro Display XDR.
Just a single Pro Display XDR.
Came up recently and as Stephen said, he uses one monitor.
with an infinite amount of open windows…
It’s funny how completely immovable Siracusa is when it comes to his window management. Cracks my up listening to him on ATP talk about his numerous windows-per-app and countless tabs-per-window, while his cohosts make fun of him.
I took a look at the price of the Pro XDR, and now I need to lie down.
Like in other podcasts (ATP!) John Siracusa is hard to follow. His voice is not very suitable for a podcast (or any audio for that matter). He mumbles. Doesn’t articulate very well. In radio days that would be a no go for any host. With podcasts everyone can take the mic.
Oh, I think I understood every word.
I don’t find him hard to follow, but when he likend the monarchy debate in the Uk to that of gun control in the states I cancelled my ATP and rec diffs subscriptions and haven’t listened to either since.
I’m not talking about understanding. This is about the use of his voice. On ATP too I notice quite a difference in loudness between him and the other 2 hosts. I may just be overcritical though. Especially for the current times. Longing for the days when a good, clear voice was a requirement to make it onto radio or television.
I understand your point, but on the other hand, it may be more beneficial to tolerate a voice that’s less polished or clear if it offers valuable content that might have been overlooked otherwise. I’m willing to compromise on voice quality in exchange for higher-quality content overall.
John’s voice is part of what makes him appealing, but I like the nattering nerd schtick in general.
He talks extremely fast. I even checked my Overcast settings because I thought I might have inadvertently changed the playback speed.
I’ve done the same thing.
I think Siracusa is brilliant. I like his voice, he’s very knowledgeable, good at explaining complex ideas, and I enjoy his cheerful contrarianness. ← may not be a an actual word but you know what I mean.
Well, if it is not a word, it should be!
There are well-known and well-respected persons in the Mac and Tech scene I skip every time they appear on a podcast. I will not name anyone. We all are different and have our favorites. We do like some others don’t and vice versa.
John Siracusa for me: I will not miss one single episode when he is a guest. This episode was no exception: it is interesting, enjoyable and fun to listen to.
