Dave and John, as promised, follow-up today on their SSD upgrade discussion, going through the issues and questions you've had since they introduced the topic a few weeks back. Answers and wisdom include the best data migration path, whether (and how) to enable TRIM support, SATA II vs. SATA II, quelling your fears about cracking open your Mac, how old is too old, and more. Then it's on to some Automator goodness (so easy truly anyone can do it!), as well as a very creative use for Mavericks' tags. All this and more in today's show!
