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.
MPU 213 is up and available for download. This month's feedback show includes a short workflow interview with K-8 principal Mike Rogers from TechEdvance. Mike shares some really cool Drafts workflows for classroom evaluations that could be adapted to a lot of uses. We also had plenty of feedback on task management and other topics from the the last month. These live shows are a lot of fun and information dense. We're getting lots of positive feedback about them. Check it out.
Katie and I cover task management in 2014 including simple solutions, web-based solutions, and OmniFocus. In this show, I talk about my tricks for keeping my task list short with a willingness to delete items and active defer-date management. Since this show went live, I've received a mixture of emails telling me I'm brilliant or crazy with nothing in between. I'll probably be writing on this in the not so distant future.
Last weekend, Katie and I recorded a live MPU show. Topics included equipping remote workers, Daylight for Mac office management, tech for going back to school, listener workflows and more vacation gadgets.
Today we'll be recording Mac Power Users live at 10am PST / 1pm EST. The chat room during the show is always a lot of fun. If you haven't got anything better to do, why don't you join us at 5by5.tv/live.
I've been thinking a lot lately about using technology on vacation and how to maintain actually enjoy time away from work in this strange always-connected world. Katie and I covered these topics and more in the most recent Mac Power Users episode.
Episode 204 of the Mac Power Users is now available. In it Katie and I talk about some of our favorite tips for giving good presentations and I talk a little bit about behind-the-scenes with the new book at the end.
