  • Markdown: Create a System-wide Shortcut for Bold and Italics
    by Evan Kline on March 19, 2018 at 11:00 pm

    If you use Markdown you know that you can make text bold by surrounding it with double underscores or double asterisks. Using italics works the same way, but you surround your text with single underscores or single asterisks. In my job I frequently review text created by someone else, and need to select portions of […]

  • The Benefits of Occasionally Switching Task Management Apps
    by Evan Kline on March 19, 2018 at 12:02 am

    Geeks love trying shiny new toys. For me that love extends to experimenting with new task management apps. Over the past year I’ve switched task management apps twice – once temporarily, and once for good (for now). About six months ago I switched from OmniFocus to TaskPaper, before eventually switching back. Most recently, I’ve switched […]

  • OmniFocus vs. Things: Why I Switched
    by Evan Kline on March 8, 2018 at 4:30 pm

    If you’ve visited 40Tech lately you’ve seen several posts on Things, which is now my task management app of choice. My switch to Things surprised me. For a few years, I was an OmniFocus snob. I fancied myself a power user, and thought other task management apps were somehow inferior because they didn’t have the […]

  • Things: Cross-Platform Attachments with DEVONthink – Part 1 (40Tech Video)
    by Evan Kline on March 1, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    I’ve made my first ever YouTube video for 40Tech. This short video addresses one of the main shortcomings of Things, my current task management app of choice. Things does not support the syncing of attachments from Mac to iOS, or vice versa. This video takes a look at how to use DEVONthink to add an […]

The magazine, which has a circulation of approximately 25,000, has published one of my articles, “How to Navigate Cybersecurity in 2018,” in the March edition. The article covers tips a law firm can take to protect itself from cyber threats. If you’re […]

  • This great iOS Spotlight trick lets you know everything about a person →
    by Evan Kline on February 26, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    Charlie Sorrel writing for Cult of Mac: Somewhere after the launch of iOS 11, Apple tweaked Spotlight search to be way more useful. Now, when you search for a person, you can trigger a sub-search that lets you find everything you have on them, from emails, to iMessages, to their contact details, through WhatsApp messages, […]∞ Permalink […]

    Bryan Villarin writing for All Narfed Up: When viewing a list on all platforms (Mac, iPad, or iPhone), you can filter by more than one tag. Hit the link for details on how to filter on macOS and iOS. Things 3 is beautiful and can be simple, but there’s power for those willing to look […]∞ Permalink […]

  • Micro.blog Posts Moved Out of Your 40Tech RSS Feed (and into Their Own Feed)
    by Evan Kline on February 24, 2018 at 1:22 pm

    My foray into micro.blog is a work in progress. Micro.blog is a service that allows you to publish Twitter-like updates to your own site, but also have them appear in a familiar timeline interface at micro.blog. The idea is that you can own your content. Since first going live with micro.blog, all my micro.blog posts […]

  • Automatically Save Mail Attachments Using Automator and Keyboard Maestro
    by Evan Kline on February 22, 2018 at 3:32 pm

    I have set up my firm’s case management system to email me three reports every Sunday evening. These reports arrive as attachments to email. For several months, I’ve been coming in on Monday morning and dragging those reports out of Mail and into Unclutter, which I keep in my Mac menu bar so I have […]
