    NC #692 MacAlly MacBook Pro Charger, Excel and Numbers and Elapsed Time, Code-Free Automation Video, Security Bits

    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.

    NC #691 Portable Battery Technology, Knightwise on Butterfly Keyboard Replacement, Jackery and RAVPower Battery Reviews

    This week we dive deep into battery technology to figure out if a high-capacity battery can actually charge a laptop. Warning, you'll learn about Watts Law and other terms so it's a bit of a propeller beanie episode, but in the end you'll have the skills to decide which battery is right for you. We take a battery break by hearing from Knightwise as he brings his butterfly key MacBook Pro in for repairs at the Brussels Apple Store. Then we'll take a look at two portable battery packs, the Jackery Power Bar and the RAVPower Power Station. I'll tell you about their specs and give you the results of my real-world tests.

    NC #690 Sweet Setup Love for Keep It and Useful Workflow, Drobo Migration, Mind Map Productivity, Security Bits

    The Sweet Setup shows some love for Keep It and has a fantastic Workflow to add an iPhone X frame to screenshots. I'll tell you about the (disappointing but ultimately successful) Great Drobo Migration of 2018. I promised the audio from my talk at Macstock Expo entitled "Mind Map Your Way to Productivity" and it's included in this week's show. And we've got Bart Busschots back with Programming By Stealth.

    NC #688 Parallels Update, Bellus3D FaceApp, Affinity Designer for iPad, Security Bits

    We're off to Macstock Expo next week so the show will be 2 days late next week. In this week's show I'll explain why even though I'm retired, it was a really stressful week (and why). I'll tell you why Steven Goetz was only partially right when he said we need to make the Mojave Beta installer into an ISO to use it in virtual machine software. Then we'll talk about how you an make truly disturbing 3D video face scans with the free Bellus3D FaceApp for iPhone X. We'll talk about how the amazing Affinity Designer is available for iPad now (on sale for $14). Then Bart Busschots is back with Security Bits where we'll talk about USB Protected Mode, the Exactis Breach and all of the other delightful things that happened in security in the past two weeks.
