This week's Mac Power Users features Song-A-Day's Jonathan Mann. Jonathan is a talented musician that can write a song in about the same time it takes me to get my keyboard turned on and find my sheet music. Jonathan does all of this with Apple technology and he explains the whole workflow. Jonathan also made jingles for our sponsors that we included in the show. My favorite was the TextExpander one.
This week's Mac Power Users features me talking about the steps I took to set up a small business when I left "the firm" to open my sole practitioner law practice. The last several months have been some of the most exhilarating of my life and I've picked up quite a few nerd tricks along the way.
This week we've got twice the fun over at the Mac Power Users.
We've wanted Christina for a long time and it was really nice finally talking with her about her work as an Apple journalist and Apple Music. We use the backdrop of the Apple Earnings Call to discuss her workflows.
We talk with Kent Newsome about working in a "locked down" office, we also discuss Amazon's Echo, listener travel tips, two factor authentication apps, OmniFocus workflows, sharing tasks, referenced photo libraries and answer listener questions on a variety of topics.
Get them while they are hot.
This week's Mac Power Users episode goes off the reservation a bit. I get tons of email from listeners asking for help with task management. Their problems quite often are not about what app to use or what OmniFocus perspective they need. The problems often run deeper. As a result I asked nerd and psychiatrist Kourosh Dini to come on the show and talk about why Task Management is so hard. I think the show came out great.
