Dave and John kick off August with an absolutely overflowing mailbag. Today’s show kicks off with a healthy serving of tips, including solving a frozen mouse and keyboard, reducing the size of PDFs without killing their quality, and a note from an Apple Genius clarifying more about how they choose who to service and when. Then it’s on to your two favorite geeks answering questions about software updates, restoring Address Book backups from Time Machine, solving a few Mail.app issues, and how to install Lion on some unsupported Macs. Cool Stuff Found is thrown in for good measure, and your geeks cover it all! Download today and enjoy.
