On this week’s show, we start off with a segment in a series about which you may have forgotten. I wouldn’t blame you, either. Remember Macademia? It’s back and making up for lost time as Jason discusses the Finder, different ways to view your files and folders, multiple ways to select files, and more. Don’t worry, it’s not all work and no fun. Randy comes next with a comical, but useful tip regarding support for Amazon Echo devices. Next, Jason and Randy have a tech chat and discuss things that came across their desks over the past few weeks. Finally, Jason wraps up with a useful little Windows tip.
