On September 22, Microsoft is going stop allowing its Office 365 customers to download Office 2011. So if you need to take advantage of the time remaining to grab the older version of the popular Office suite, there’s no better time to do so! We’ll show you how.
This Quick Tip is about manipulating attachments in Mail on your Mac. We’ll talk about the different menus, your right-click options, and even dragging things around to make ’em do your bidding!
Every update to iTunes seems to refine a useful feature out of the interface, and as I created a new playlist in iTunes this morning I found yet another. All new Playlists are stuck in “Playlist” view, which has a limited selection of columns and no obvious way to customize them. No worries, you can still customize them, you just have to change your View first. We’ll show you how.
iOS Mail lets you search your messages, and most folks know that. What many of us didn’t know until Aaron’s comment in Sunday’s Mac Geek Gab 616 was that iOS responds differently to certain key words. If, for example, you type “yesterday” into Mail’s search field, it offers to “tokenize” that and make it a condition of the search, limiting to things dated, well, yesterday. Once you tokenize a term, you can add another. We’ve all experienced tokenizing someone’s name or an email subject, but the list is much bigger than that.

Today’s Quick Tip is on how to use Preview’s Instant Alpha tool, so if you’ve got an image on a colored background, for example, you can clip that baby right out. Better-looking graphics with no Photoshop required? We love it.
Hunting down Pokémon is pretty frustrating when you know one is near, but can’t find it. That’s because the tracking feature in Pokémon GO is horribly broken and there isn’t any word on when it’ll be working again. To that end, some resourceful Pokémon GO fans put together a site that not only tells you where nearby Pokémon are, but how long they’ll be around.
There may be occasions when one wants to verify what OS X version is running on a Mac. We all know how to do it from the GUI with “About This Mac,” but John shows us how to do it from the UNIX command line when necessary.
It’s really cool seeing a Charmander, Flareon, or Pikachu right in front of you when you’re playing Pokémon GO. The augmented reality, or AR, that lets you see a Pokémon on the sidewalk in front of you is pretty fun, but turning it off can save a little battery life and makes the game easier to play, too.
