I’m still working on how to get chapters in the podcast (this show might have them!) Follow up tips from Mike Price and Kaylee Dayo on Reader View. How Sandy and Allister saved Thanksgiving with their tip on saving a workout from last week. Bart brings us a Tiny Tip on a trivially easy way to show and hide hidden files in macOS Sierra and High Sierra. I mind mapped all of the settings in iOS 11, and it was utter madness. In Security Bits Bart and I talk about how Face ID isn’t broken, we learn about USB bugs in the Linux Kernel and how there’s a vulnerability in Intel chips you might need to know about.
I seem to be falling into a pattern. A pattern of obsessiveness of discovery. Who can forget the minute detail I went to in order to determine the size of the iPhone X screen? Or how about actually reading NIST Special Publication 800-63B in order to understand what the rules are about two-factor authentication and our banks? And then there’s documenting every minute change in the different MacBook Pro models to help you decide which one to buy. Or mapping all of the specs of the different iPhone models Apple is selling?
Well, I’ve done it again. I decided to mind map all, and I mean all of the Settings in iOS 11. I did not understand the utter madness into which I was about to descend when I undertook this project. But utter madness it was.
What’s the problem to be solved here? Personally, I find myself often digging around in Settings muttering to myself, “Where IS that setting? Was it in Mail, iCloud? Or was it in iCloud, Mail?”
Barry Porter tells us about another way to address Bluetooth problems by resetting the Bluetooth hardware module. I’ll tell you why I like Setapp and how it helped me find Cloud Outliner Pro from xwavesoft.com/…. In a Tiny Tip I tell you how to solve the problem of your Apple TV remote always being upside down. Then I’ll tell you the process of how I sell my Apple products so I can afford new toys. We’ve got Bart Busschots with Security Bits.
A while back a new app model came out called Setapp from setapp.com. You probably heard about it back then, but to refresh your memory, it’s a subscription service for $10/month that gives you full access to a ton of apps.
At the time, without looking at it myself, I declared it a dumb idea and I didn’t want any part of it. But then I met Mark Fawcett of MacMen at MacStock Expo and he told me he thought it was really cool. I still didn’t look into it. Then Steven Goetz, my research assistant, told me it was cool. But I still didn’t look into it. Continue reading “Setapp Led Me to Cloud Outliner Pro”
Our old friend Knightwise is back with an interesting problem to be solved.
He reads his books electronically in the Kindle app in ePub format, and he likes to highlight as he reads. He uses these highlights in creation of talks he gives to other entrepreneurs. He outlines his talks using a Mind Mapping program called X-Mind from xmind.net.
He was hoping to get an iPad Pro and use split screen to view the book on one side and the mind map on the other side. The problem he found though was that he couldn’t use the Kindle app in split screen and wonders whether iOS 11 would fix the problem.
