After 4 years, Katie and I go back to the subject of syncing data on this week's Mac Power Users episode. In it, we cover the relative merits of Dropbox and iCloud and also expand the discussion to syncing all sorts of data between Macs and iOS devices. This is also the episode where Katie threatens to eviscerate me with a Klingon pointy-sword.
On this week's Mac Power Users episode Serenity Caldwell joined us to talk about working from home, her favorite Apps, her velcro based standing desk, authoring ebooks, and a whole lot more.
After many years using LaunchBar, Katie and I have both been spending time with the recent release of Alfred 2, the keyboard launcher (and much more) for the Mac. I've officially switched. We share our experiences with this very clever new application and explain what we like (and don't like) about it. We also walk through how to use the app and the addition of workflows, clever user-created plug ins that make the app really useful.
One of my favorite shows every year on the Mac Power Users is the workflow interview with Merlin Mann. Merlin is a friend and was the very first workflow guest on the show. This year's episode delivers in spades. We talk about how we use Evernote, GTD in 2013, the iPad, Podcasting, and Merlin's favorite Apps. Enjoy.
In episode 131 of the Mac Power Users, Eddie Smith joins us to talk about how Markdown is no longer just for geeks. We also talk about a book you may have heard of but I we don't hard sell it. (At least we tried not to.) Finally, we spend some time on the challenges faced collaborating on a rich-media book and the tools and workflows we used to get there.
I've wanted to do a typography show for ages but never found the right guest. Fortunately, I recently did with Ina Saltz, who was knowledgeable, helpful, and patient as I butchered my way through the interview. There are lots of great tips for upping your typography game in this episode.
Mac Power Users 124, recorded live on the Macworld show floor is up. During this episode, we took questions from the live audience, got through some great feedback, and talked about some of our best finds from the Macworld show floor. Enjoy.
Craig Hockenberry, a fellow Orange County resident, is one of the premier Mac and iOS programmers. Twitterific, the first Twitter client, was Craig's brainchild. (He even played a role in coining the term "tweet".) Anyway, Craig tells us how he works in a company with its employees all over the nation (and world), his creative process, and his recommendations to get started in programming.
Katie and I returned to iTunes for episode 122. We've got some real interesting guests coming up in the next month plus the live show on the Macworld floor on Friday at 1 p.m. If you are at Macworld. Come by and say hello.
