This week we released two episodes of the Mac Power Users.
MPU 239 includes a workflow interview with Adam Christianson from the Maccast podcast about his history with Apple, life as a programer, and experiences through the years podcasting and Mac User Groups.
MPU 240 is the February live feedback show. Topics include financial management apps, more on FileVault, antivirus, upgrading your Mac, and we are joined by professor Bonni Stachowiak, who uses screen casting software for student feedback. Katie and I also reveal easy ways to push our buttons.
Katie and I frequently get asked to share our favorite apps for setting up a new Mac. This week's Mac Power Users episode answers this question as we explain our 10 favorite apps and 10 favorite utilities. We also take time to stop and explain a tip or two with each pick. Enjoy.
The latest Mac Power Users Live episode is up. In it, we touch base with Todd Olthoff to talk about OS X Server under Yosemite, follow-up on iOS Apps, Email and answer listener questions about NAS, home media center, preserving family memories and more.
Episode 227 of the Mac Power User is up. In it, Katie and I talk about what apps make the cut for our home screens and notification center widgets. Also, this is the one where I discovered I am more anal-retentive than Katie. Who'd of thunk?
Got some downtime this weekend? MPU 223 is out. In it Mike Rohde joins us to talk about his new book, the Sketchnote Workbook. We also discuss my fancy new iMac, academic workflows, goal setting, security, and share listener tips and answer questions.
This week Aleh Cherp, an instructor at two universities and publisher of Macademic.org joined us to discuss how he gets work done with his Apple Technologies. In it we cover dealing with students and research and writing. There are some great tips in this one.
This month's live show is ready for download. We’re joined by Luke Soules of iFixit to talk about iPhone 6 repairability and follow-up on our own experiences with the iPhone and iOS 8. We also discuss security concerns and FileVault, review listener feedback and workflows in Education and review tips on a variety of topics including uses for TextExpander, automated filing services, and travel.
This week's Mac Power Users episode is a good one. Federico Viticci (from MacStories) joins us and we talk about the state of automation in iOS with the latest iOS 8 release. We talk about things that got easier and lament problems that still exist.
In this week's Mac Power Users episode we interview Ken Case (Omni Group), Greg Scown (Smile), and Dave Teare (1Password) about the wild ride they've been on since WWDC and the big changes they've been able to make in their applications with iOS 8. This is the first time we've done a developer roundtable and it came out great. We'll be doing more of these in the future.
In the latest installment of the Mac Power Users, Katie and I cover our favorite features in the latest version of iOS. There is a lot to cover here and I think we did a pretty good job of it. As an aside, I've got several posts going up this week about iOS 8. I'm really digging it and it is already changing my game.
Katie is going back to school and I'm sending my daughter off to college. As a result, we've been both thinking a lot about student workflows. In our most recent show we cover some excellent Mac and iPad based solutions and share several ideas from listeners.
