This show is a bit introspective but also includes some of our favorite tips and show recommendations. If you've been with us this far, you may enjoy this episode just for the sentimental value.

Katie and I are finding a rhythm with the monthly live feedback shows. Don't believe me? Check this out.
Things have been nuts for me lately on several fronts. I spent some time this afternoon feeling sorry for myself until I realized I have the perfect cure in a live podcast about spectacularly geeky things planned for tomorrow. That's right. The Mac Power Users monthly live show is set to go tomorrow at 10am PST/1pm EST. If you've got nothing better to do on Saturday, why don't you stop by at the appointed hour.
Don McAllister of ScreenCastsOnline returned to talk about his video production setup, creating a monthly magazine on Apple’s Newsstand platform, and why he bought a new Mac Pro. Don has really done an amazing job of streamlining his production process and remains an inspiration.
This week Katie and I dive deep on the current state of word processors on the Mac and iOS. We also talk about whether or not word processors even relevant in 2014. Sadly, we decided that for too many people (myself included), they are.
We recorded our second live show last Saturday and we're getting better at it. This show includes feedback and listener ideas relating to email, AppleScript, OmniFocus, Hazel and more.

Hay Oborn is not messing around.
