Do you close your Terminal sessions correctly? Does iStat Menus work after you migrate? Are you getting Notes to launch as fast as possible? You’ll be able to answer “yes” to all three of these things after just the first few minutes of this week’s show. Stick around and learn about taming CarPlay, sharing Calendars, using a VPN with your Apple TV and much more. You’ll definitely hit your quota of learning at least five new things with John and Dave this week.
OWC Founder and CEO, Larry O’Connor, takes us through the details of their Mercury Elite Pro Dock. This is a Thunderbolt 3 Dock and Dual-Drive RAID all-in-one. RAID 0 or 1 is done in hardware, or you can configure it as a JBOD and manage it yourself. With seven ports, including Ethernet, two USB 3.1 Gen 1, DisplayPort 1.2, SD Card, and Gigabit Ethernet, this US$299.99 device might be exactly what you need to complete your setup.
Once upon a time we had a Mac. Or two. We backed them up with an external drive and Time Machine. Then we had an iPhone. We backed it up and updated it with iTunes on our Mac. The digital hub. Simple. However, over the years, our devices and data have proliferated as Apple has expanded its products and services. Today, we’re in flux. There are few warm fuzzies. We’re not yet where we hope and need to be.
Guess what? RAID support is back in Disk Utility in macOS Sierra. You won’t find it in the main interface (see below), but you will find it in the File Menu.
