NC #660 Google Year in Search, 2017 What Apps Am I Still Using Part 2, Vimmy & Oh Sh-t Git, Hunt for Missing Menus

We’ll start with part 2 of my year in review of the apps and hardware I’ve talked about in 2017 and I’ll let you know whether I’m still using them. After that, we’ll be joined by Caleb Fong with a couple of Tiny Tip segments on tools for programming. Then Denise Crown will give us a shootout on US streaming service she’s been testing to see if she can cut the cord. Then I’ll wind up the show with a story of missing menus for my father-in-law and how the NosillaCastaways, the Mac Geek Gab listeners and of course Bart helped me solve the problem.
