Main Menu will be taking a break for the month of July but we want to go out with a Bang! Yes, this is one of those shows you’ll want to download and listen to again and again, not just because of our exceptional talent but because we’ve got some serious couch potato toppings! The Amazon Team comes to us with new and nifty accessibility updates to Voice view across their devices, including Fire TV! then Randy shows us the most important part of any TV, the Remote Control, for those Fire TV models. Scott Smith is back to show us another TV-related item, Alexa and Dish Network. Finally, anyone taking to the skies for convention or fun, because they can be mutually exclusive you know, will need to listen to Jenine’s demo of the My TSA app. We wish everyone attending the ACB Conference and Convention safe and happy travels! We’ll be back in August with much more exciting tech. .

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.
