A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 078. Automator is a very powerful tool built in to OS X for performing all kinds of repetitive tasks on your Mac. Apple has done their best to make it easy to get started with Automator, but most of us still see it as a tool for more advanced users. I’ll show how you can get started with Automator and how easy it is to build workflows for common tasks that any user might want to automate on their Mac.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Show 344. With a lot of the news turning to rumors or focusing on the iPad 2 and iOS stuff this week I was starting to feel like I really needed to get my Mac geek on. I decided to invite the guys from RetroMaccast over to have a talk about some of the great old Mac systems and technology and about how we might bring those back into our lives. It was a fun and informative trip back to the Mac.
