#NewBlogPost: There’s No Place Like Home

If you haven’t guessed by now I’ve traded in my trusty—and loved—iPhone 8 Plus for a shiny new silver iPhone XS Max. I knew there would be trade offs. I knew there’d be a bit of a learning curve; especially reprograming body memory. This one is the toughest to overcome, and I’m still in the process ...

#NewPost: Creating Signatures In Apple Mail

I’m not sure exactly when it started. Creating signatures in Apple Mail use to be pretty straight forward. But somewhere in the not too distant past, Apple decided that it would no longer make it easy to create custom HTML based signatures. Whether it was because of possible security issues, or it was just one less thing Apple wanted to support , the outcome was making a custom HTML signature got a lot more complicated. It’s true that within the current abilities of Apple Mail it does support “rich text” to allow a modicum of text formatting. Though the only way to add an image is to paste it into the Apple signature window. The problem with that? The receiver gets that image as an attachment—which on some mail servers (like gMail) can be seen as a possible virus threat and your email ends up in the recipients spam folder, and not the intended Inbox. Using rich text signatures may not be functional or robust enough for everyone. Enter HTML signatures.

#NewBlogPost: How To: Hide Your Apple TV On AirPlay

One of the greatest features of the newer Apple TVs is the ability to stream music, or video from another iOS device or Mac via AirPlay. Because AirPlay is always “on” by default your Apple TV’s name is broadcast for anyone to find; and they don’t even have to be on your WiFi network. If you live in an apartment, condo complex, or another house is only feet away, those nearby neighbor’s Apple TV names can show up as device choices to stream to, on anyone’s iPhone, iPad, or Mac. It’s a blessing and a curse.

#NewBlogPost: This is an update to a previous blog post: How To: Create A Folder In Mail.app. I’ve done the update because the macOS Mail.app interface has changed drastically since my last post on the subject. In my previous post I did two separate sections one on POP and another on IMAP eMail. I’ve done the same in this post too.

Archiving mail, no matter what eMail application you use, is always a good thing to do. Being organized can help you with a cluttered and bursting Inbox and or Sent folder. Here is a simple “How To” for creating a folder/mailbox in Apple’s Mail.app.

#NewBlogPost: How-To: Get A Handle On macOS - iOS Autocorrect And Text Replacement

With the advent of the modern macOS and iOS and their myriad of time saving features, none have been as frustrating, infuriating — and funny — as auto correct; or in Apple lingo — text replacement. Entire websites have been devoted to posting hilarious auto corrections. But for those who may want to forgo these oft embarrassing missives, this How-To is for you. This How-To will cover ways to help you stop either you Mac or iDevice from usurping your preferred words with ones that may not be anywhere near what you intended. We will see the interfaces may be slightly different in macOS vs iOS, but the outcome will be the same once completed.
