    NC #657 Making Holiday Labels, Pocket Casts vs Downcast, Patreon Changes, Security Bits

    Tom Merritt was on Chit Chat Across the Pond to talk net neutrality. I confess that after all my "I have made fire" talk about writing a script for chapter marks, it didn't actually work. Learn how to make Holiday Card Address Labels using plain old Apple Contacts. Rush Sherman asks our first ever video Dumb Question - why do I use Downcast when I clearly said I used Pocket Casts before? Patreon did a major shift in how they charge patrons and pay creators, and I wanted to tell you how I feel about it and what hopefully will be changing. In a rare moment of music enjoyment, I suggest you buy If Every Day Were Christmas from Slau Halatyn. Bart Busschots brings us Security Bits about the macOS Root Bug, a HomeKit Bug, and changes to iOS Backup Encryption.

    In this action-packed show I tell you the story of adding chapter markers to the NosillaCast in a three part continuation series (hopefully you can see them now?) interspersed with two reviews from Bart. He tells us about how he's using Hazel now to send things to Yoink and he explains why CardHop makes Contacts useful again. Steve wrote to Craig Federighi and actually got a response and 30 seconds of fame on Apple sites. And we've got a PSA about a phone scam using an Apple Store's real phone number.

    NC #655 Follow Up on Chapters, Reader View and Adding Workouts, Show Hidden Files, Mind Map iOS 11 Settings, Security Bits

    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.
