After last week’s brain-bending segment on battery calculations, I’ll give you three easy steps to follow that literally summarizes the entire segment. Then I’ll explain why I tried to use Numbers when I wanted to use Excel and how I continue to be disappointed by Numbers. My CMD-D video is finally up from last year where I talked about Code-Free Automation. Then Bart joins us for another segment of Security Bits.
Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, August 12, 2018, and this is show number 692.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
Last week’s lesson on how to size batteries was a little rough for some people. David Roth wrote in our Facebook group about it: ” I gather the podcast listenership had grown too big, so this piece was designed to eliminate the non-engineers?”
Ok, fine. I realized I could have given you pretty much three simple steps to size an AC battery for your Mac laptop:
- Download the free MacTracker from Mactracker.ca for Mac or iOS
- In MacTracker, find your Mac’s battery in Wh
- Divide your Mac’s battery in Wh by .72 and that’s how big of an AC battery you need to charge your Mac at least once
There, David, are you happy now?

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s back to school season and you might just be buying school supplies for your precious little monsters. I decided to make life easier for you and created a link to Amazon’s Back to School Supplies. It’s pretty cool, they’ve got it sorted by grades and by type of supplies. There’s even a Deals for Back to School section. Remember if you use the Amazon Affiliate Links, a small percentage may go back to help the show, and it doesn’t cost you an extra dime! We thank you for your support of the Podfeet Podcasts.
The hack we were trying to remember that TSMC fell victim to was called WannaCry.
