Allister Jenks has created new and improved Podfeet stickers for iMessage. I’ll tell you how obsessed I’ve become with automation from AppleScript to Workflow to Keyboard Maestro. Then Bart is back with Security Bits where he’ll regale us with news and things to watch out for, and tell us whether we’re at the end of times because of recent research into DNA and computer code.

NC #640 Nightshift and Invert Colors, CMD-D Conference, Split Screen on iPad for Books

In this week’s show I start by playing you a VERY silly recording from Joe Dugandzic of smarterhomelife.com. Then I’ll read you a rant by Chris Eschweiler about Night Shift and Invert Colors and I’ll give him some good news. After that I’ll regale you with tales of adventure about the CMD-D Conference hosted by Sal Soghoian. It was a blast and I can’t wait to do more automation. Then I’ll play you a question from Knightwise of knightwise.com about how to use both a mind mapping app and his book reading app in split screen.

NC #637 Macstock Outbrief, Stump Stand, Apple IIe, Numbers for Meds, Security Bits

In this early show, I’ll give you an out brief on Macstock 2017. I’ll talk about the people and the presentations (and maybe a little bit about the parties). Then Sandy Foster joins us for a review of the Stump Stand for iPad and iPhone. Trevor Drover joins us with a fantastic tale of how he figured out how to hook an Apple IIe up to a current MacBook Pro to transfer disk images between the two for the National Library. Very cool story. Then Terry Austin tells us how he figured out that by using the collaboration feature of Apple’s Numbers application, he could help his mom keep track of her complex medication schedule as she arms for battle against cancer. We’ll wind up with another segment of Security Bits with Bart Busschots.

NC #635 Conversation of Things, Photo Albums People Want to See, Subscription Models for Software, Security Bits

I was on the inaugural episode of the Conversations of Things podcast with Joe Dugandzic. I’ll explain how to make photo albums with Apple Photos that people actually want to see (spoiler, it’s about keywords). I’ll challenge some assumptions Bart Busschots made in his Let’s Talk Photography podcast about subscription models for software. And Bart is back with another fine edition of Security Bits.

NC #634 Ring Doorbell Mirror Mod, MacTracker for Resale Price, Mouse User Confession, New New 12.9″ iPad Pro

Steve and I put our engineering heads together to modify the Ring Video Doorbell so we can actually see the doorstep. In another Tiny Tip, I explain how you can use Mactracker with bidvoy to figure out how at what price your Apple device might sell. Steve Sheridan comes in with a confession of how he actually likes the Magic Trackpad better than his mouse (and says I was right). I talk about the new new 12.9″ iPad Pro and how happy I am to have it back in my life.

I’ve got part 2 of my Affinity Photo for iPad review/walk through and then we’ve got Security Bits with Bart Busschots.
