Adam Christianson joins Pilot Pete and Dave Hamilton this week to dive deep into a slew of Apple-centric topics. They kicked off with a series of Quick Tips, guiding users through optimizing cellular data settings, using keyboard shortcuts in Pages, and even the quirky tip of FaceTiming oneself. In a (literal!) blast from the past, Dave shared his recent lightning-related woes, resulting in a new Mac purchase and highlighting the often-overlooked importance of device backups, especially post technical snafus.

Cool Stuff Found began by explored the intricacies of hardwiring networks using MoCA technology, and the benefits of the BetterSnapTool for screen setups were extolled. Apple Music’s new Discovery Station was thrown into the spotlight, promising listeners a fresh musical journey. Adam wrapped things up with his take on the Belkin iPhone Mount, a MagSafe-compatible gem.
