MacVoices #15158: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Keynote

Joe Kissell has a new book (what a surprise!), Take Control of Keynote, and he explains why he took two separate approaches to advising you on Apple’s presentation program. First, Joe looks at the technical aspects of Keynote – how to get the effects you want, the ground-up redesign of Keynote and how to better understand where to find what you’re looking for. Joe also discusses how to give a good presentation, no matter what software you’re using. From the style of you slides to your delivery, there are tips here that even the most experienced presenter will benefit from. Finally, we look at some of the flashier features of Keynote and how you can use them tastefully to better convey your message.

MacVoices #15156: Jeff Carlson Discusses Photos for OS X and iOS

Jeff Carlson just finished Photos for OS and iOS, his effort to help you get the most out of Apple’s new photo app and services. Starting with a discussion of why iPhoto was lacking, Jeff gives us a look at what Photos and its related cloud-based options bring to the table for all levels of photographers, from DSLR shooters to iPhone users. If you’re an Aperture user, Jeff has some news about the upcoming version of Photos in El Capitan that will interest you, so don’t make the switch to Lightroom just yet.

Also in the market for new hardware, Ted covers his thinking on his next Mac, provides some opinions on Apple Music, the new iPods and more.

MacVoices #15152: Jodi Spangler Discusses Tech Consulting for Seniors

Jodi Spangler of Lakeshore Mac is an independent tech consultant who specializes in assisting seniors with tech-related challenges. That can range from individuals with little or no tech experience to those who struggle just to keep up. Jodi’s insights into why things we all take for granted can be such a challenge to the senior population are both surprising and useful, including physical challenges you might not expect, the irrational fear that seems to come from not fully understanding Macs, iPhones and iPads, and why it can be difficult for seniors to “think digital, not analog.” Her top three tips will help you in dealing with the seniors in your life who don’t want to be left behind, and can also be applied to teaching anything.

Coming off two wildly successful events, Barry Fulk, the host of the Midwest Mac BBQ, and Mike Potter, the organizer behind the MacStock Conference & Expo, talk about what worked and why it worked so well at both events, the importance of getting together in person in a world saturated with social media, and why the Apple community is unlike any other.

MacVoices #15150: Paul Kent Discusses This Year’s MacIT Conference

This year’s MacIT Conference is less than a month away, and Conference Chair Paul Kent has plenty to tell us about who’s speaking, the kinds of topics on the schedule, and why it is the place you need to be if you are interested in Macs in the enterprise or large-scale academic environment. Paul talks about the move to Santa Clara, in the heart of Silicon Valley and explains how this year’s conference is structured so that it includes not only sessions, but plenty of networking opportunities as well as attendee participation.

MacVoices #15157: Kirk McElhearn Takes Control of iTunes 12 and Apple Music

Kirk McElhearn has released Take Control of iTunes 12, a title that not only covers Apple’s music player as well as the new Apple Music service. iTunes has generated plenty of controversy as it has matured. Kirk takes us through the goods and no-so-goods of the current iteration so that you can get the most out of the changes and enhancements. Then, the focus goes to Apple Music, the challenges it has faced, and how it integrates with the iTunes experience.

MacVoices #15155: Michael E. Cohen Takes Control of TextExpander For The Second Time

Michael E. Cohen is back with the second edition of Take Control of TextExpander, the book that helps you get the most out of both TextExpander 5 and TextExpander 3, both by Smile. A utility to save you keystrokes by allowing short abbreviations, or “snippets” to insert longer phrases or trigger other actions, TextExpander is a utility that can be used by anyone. Michael discusses how the new version offers both suggestions and automatic snippet creation to make learning and getting the most out of the program easier. He also discusses the iOS version, some of the more advanced uses of TextExpander, and why it is not only the subject of the book, but also is one of his favorite, essential productivity applications.

MacVoices #15153: Jeff Carlson Talks Apple Watch and His Take Control Crash Course

Jeff Carlson gave us an early look at Apple Watch some time ago when we talked about the first edition of his Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course. With the second edition released after actually having the time to use and evaluate the device, Jeff is back to share his observations on how it can benefit the user, the role of expectations in the Apple Watch experience, and why he discounts all those “declining Apple Watch sales” linkbait stories. Whether you already own an Apple Watch or are just considering getting one, you need to hear what Jeff has to say.

Yeah, it'll take time. Only tens of billions of users slamming the servers simultaneously. The iPhone is finally filling up but the iPad is lagging.

The sound quality surprised me. Their 256kbps AAC sounds as crisper than Spotify's 320kbps Ogg Vorbis. I also love the 'Alternative Classics' channel. And hey, I'm back into Morrisey!

So, we will see.

MacVoices #15149: The MacJury Takes On Apple Music, Taylor Swift and Royalty Payments

The MacJury takes on the issue of royalty payments for the first three, free, months of the soon-to-be-launched Apple Music service. Who were they negotiating with? Were they negotiating with the right people? Does Taylor Swift really speak for the artists, for the labels, or just for herself? Was their a bad guy in the story, or was it all just a big PR stunt? The panel of Julio Ojeda-Zapata, Neal Pann, Guy Serle and host Chuck Joiner discuss it from every angle, to give you a different perspective on these events.
