There’s a rather hidden feature inside Apple Mail that is helping you right now but may trip you up in the future if you don’t know what it does and how to manage it. It’s called Previous Recipients.
The problem Previous Recipients solves is this. You get an email from someone with whom you haven’t corresponded before. Maybe you know them but you don’t know them well enough to have ever added them to your Contacts.
I’ve been feeling like the unluckiest Apple fangirl of all time with all the problems I’ve had with my Apple gear in the last year. Most recently you might remember the saga back in August of my 2016 MacBook Pro going belly up (wouldn’t charge). It would only stand out in your memory because my 2013 backup MacBook Pro couldn’t connect to Apple’s services so I ended up asking executives at Apple to give me a hand.
Anyway, that all got resolved and I got my 2016 MacBook Pro back with a shiny new logic board. I haven’t wanted to mention it because I was hoping the problem would just go away on its own, but I’ve been having a problem with the Mac ever since I got it back. Do you do that too, go into denial and just wish these things away?
Erica Peterson of Moms Can: CODE joins us this week to talk about her new startup designed to help mothers who code to connect and collaborate.
We talk about her life as a mother of a five-year-old, while coding, while teaching high school biology, creating a startup and running a non-profit. The non-profit is called Science Tots, which is focused on bringing STEAM activities to non-science-based events.
I may have mentioned a few hundred times that I love Excel. I serious dislike PowerPoint, and I see no need for Word, but Excel brings me great joy. I simply love taking piles of data and turning it into information, and Excel is how I do that. There isn’t a pivot table I don’t adore, doing a vlookup delights me (once I re-remember how to do one), and simply formatting a graph to help explain my point brings me great joy.
If you find great value in any of the Office products from Microsoft, you may need to consider an Office 365 subscription yourself. You might be saying, “But Allison, Office 2011 does everything I need!” And while that’s true, you won’t be able to use Office 2011 after you upgrade to High Sierra. Microsoft isn’t going to upgrade it so you’re going to have to make a decision pretty soon.
In this mammoth show, I’ll tell you how I’m an idiot, then I’ll talk about what surprises and delights me in iOS 11 and watchOS 4. Then Bart is back with Security Bits that includes a giant tutorial about cookies, and why third-party cookies are a bad thing.
