    Here’s my super quick first take on the AirPods Pro: Fit and Comfort As you probably know, you can change the size of the tips. If the default tips pass the Fit Test, you will still want to try the other tips. Both the default tips and the smaller tips gave me a good seal

    by Evan Kline on October 27, 2019 at 1:06 pm

    When I meet with new clients, I typically take typewritten notes in the Drafts app on my iPad, using a template/checklist of topics I’ve created. In the past, I generated this checklist in Drafts via TextExpander, but I now trigger the template via a shortcut in iPadOS’s native Shortcuts app. I run the shortcut just

    It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally implemented dark mode on 40Tech. I started working on this a few months ago, and it was my use of dark mode on iOS in bed at night that spurred me to take the extra couple of minutes and finish this off. It is tied to

    Readers of this blog know how important DEVONthink is to my workflow.

    I must not be big on anniversaries, because I completely missed the 10 year anniversary of this site. A “Coming Soon” post went live on May 28, 2009, with the first substantive post going up on June 4, 2009. I remember sitting at the table at my sister’s beach house that May with my laptop

    Your Caps Lock key might be underused on your Mac. If you’re a big automation geek, why not use it for something else, in addition to its built-in functionality? Karabiner Elements is a Mac tool that lets you customize the keyboard on your Mac, including the Caps Lock key. In this post, I’ll talk about

    Ryan Christoffel writing for MacStories: First, HomeRun now provides the option to set different complications to appear on your watch face throughout the day during select time periods.

    You can never own too many text editors. Okay, I can never own too many text editors. I recently splurged on BBEdit, the venerable HTML and text editor for the Mac.
