Quick Tips: Apple Maps Favorites and Adium’s Option-Up/Down
The episode kicks off with Donna’s quick tip on using Apple Maps Favorites to save your favorite locations for easy access. This is a great feature to take advantage of, especially if you frequently visit the same places.

As Dave points out, “Your Fingers Will Remember!” This is a great way to quickly navigate through your message history without having to use the mouse.
SaneBox: Organize Your Inbox and Get More Email
If you’re like most people, your email inbox is probably overflowing with messages. That’s where SaneBox comes in. In this episode, the hosts discuss how this handy tool can help you organize your inbox and get more email. SaneBox uses algorithms to automatically filter out unimportant messages, leaving you with only the most important ones. This can save you time and help you stay focused on what’s really important.
Setting Up a Passkey for Your Google Account
In today’s world, online security is more important than ever. That’s why it’s important to use strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts. In this episode, Ricky shares a quick tip on setting up a passkey for your Google Account. This is a secure and easy-to-use system that can help keep your Google Account safe from hackers.
Emacs vs. vi: The Eternal Debate
For many Mac users, the debate between Emacs and vi is an age-old one. In this episode, the hosts share their thoughts on these two popular text editors.
