MacVoices

If you use multiple email clients or need to open certain links in a specific web browser, then Bumpr is for you. Khoi Vinh explains how Bumpr was born out of a need that he and his co-creator Scott Ostler had. You might have that same need as you work from home if your employer mandates something other than what you use. Khoi reviews how it works, why it does not present any security risks, and why you may forget that you are using it.

Some of the topics include Apple Watch, iPhone, whether 5G will really make a difference, and the reality, or lack thereof, of the “supercycle”.

The second part of our conversation with Joe Kissell about Take Control of Big Sur focuses on how to get the most out of the new version of macOS, from the more iOS-influenced look to the features that you won’t be able to access until you buy an Apple Silicon-based machine. Joe discusses some of the updated productivity features, why you don’t have to upgrade to Big Sur to enjoy the latest privacy protections in Safari, and why he is excited by the return of the startup chime.

Joe Kissell helps you get up and running with Apple’s latest version of macOS in Take Control of Big Sur. In the first part of our conversation, Joe explains how this book combines what could have been two books, and covers getting ready for the upgrade, and the upgrade itself. Joe takes us through some things that you should be aware of before, during, and after the upgrade, including a potential limitation on being able to boot from a backup, and a caveat regarding Time Machine.
