A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 131. Since Mountain Lion was released I’ve been working on digging in and learning all the ins and out. While I try and figure out what’s new and worth while I thought it would be good to share some of the early tips and tricks I’ve discovered.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 130. I have been asking for topics that you want to know about for these membership shows and Judy had some great questions about what happens when you enable iCloud backups on your device. I have to admit that it’s a huge area of mystery to me so it was a perfect opportunity for us all to learn with a little ICloud Backup deep dive.

Maccast Members 129 – OS X Permissions

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 129. I discovered recently that in OS X Lion that when you run repair permission in Disk Utility that it will not repair permissions on anything in the users folder. Items inside the user’s home folder are regulated by Access Control Lists (ACLs) while items outside the user’s home folder are regulated by more standard (POSIX) permissions. In this show I attempt to learn a little bit more about these permission systems as they relate to OS X.
