It was fitting that our 250th episode took place with a live audience. You'd think that after this long Katie and I are running out of things to say. We're not and there is lots of great content planned for the coming months.
In this episode we're joined by Brett Bruney to discuss scanning on the go, we follow-up on LaTex, RSS and cord-cutting. We also address listener questions about splitting iTunes accounts, merging contacts, scheduling time to complete tasks and share listener tips about automating a home webcam, using Keyboard maestro, and automated RSS feeds.
This week, Katie and I are joined by Bradley Chambers as he and Katie explain their differing strategies for canceling cable TV. There are some good tips in this show about consuming entertainment in general for 2015.
Episode 247 goes back to the current state of read it later and RSS services. I think mastering this stuff is more important now than ever with all those shiny things being thrown at us and a lot has changed since the last time we covered these subjects.
In episode 245 of Mac Power Users, Katie and I discuss Smart Folders with guest Joel Anderson. We also follow up on texting workflows, managing large scans and OCR quality, journaling, compare Launch Center Pro and Workflow, talk about monitoring your home network usage, help a listener assemble media for a family legacy project, and discuss the Apple Watch. Also, Katie judges me on my colored Hue lights.
