A few things for a slow Friday

Leave a comment

Hey, everyone. Its Friday, and I know for a lot of you, the work starts to wind down. So here are a few things you shouldn’t miss today, while you’re wasting time waiting for the weekend:

Free Podcast!

I’ll be giving a free 30-minute podcast today at lunchtime (east coasters) looking at a few of the new features in Sierra. If you’ve been using the latest macOS for a while, there won’t me much surprising here. But for those of you who haven’t upgraded yet., Ill be showing off some featured and discussing things to consider, particularly with consideration for support staff and admins. its at 1:00 eastern, and you can sign up here.

Imaging on the Mac will be dead soon(ish)

For the first time in many, many years, Apple will be releasing an all-new and maybe revolutionary file system later this year. Rich Trouton talks about it on his blog, Der Flounder, and what this means especially for imaging systems.

Introducing the Macintosh Portable

28 years ago, Apple released the Macintosh portable computer. It was huge, heavy, ugly, slow, and awful, and the battery lasted about 5 minutes. But Jean-Louis Gassée’s introduction was mesmerizing. He assembled the thing, by hand, on stage, as he talked about it! You really gotta watch this, if only for the nostalgia and showmanship.
