TMO CES 2020 Coverage Sponsor: TextExpander

· · Weekly Sponsorship

TextExpander Logo from Smile

Please join me in offering a warm thank you to TextExpander – and the folks behind it at Smile – for joining us and sponsoring our CES 2020 coverage this year. Sifting through all the noise at CES to highlight products that are relevant for all of us Apple-focused-folk takes a lot of effort, time, and expense. It often starts in mid-November, and continues through this week. Without TextExpander and sponsors like them, this simply wouldn’t be possible at the level we’re able to do it for you this week.

Smile TextExpander Evangelist Jeff Gamet - TMO Background Mode Interview

· · Background Mode Podcast

Jeff Gamet on Background Mode

Jeff Gamet the former managing editor of The Mac Observer, a position he held for 13 years. He’s also a book author and noted podcaster. About a year ago, Jeff left TMO to become the Smile TextExpander Evangelist.

With a year at his new job under his belt, I asked Jeff about his accomplishments, challenges, and ongoing change in perspective being an evangelist for a major software company. We chatted about being deep on macOS, the TextExpander transition to macOS Catalina, the change being heavily involved in Apple developer relations and the change in work habits, especially being no longer immersed in every Apple product and service. We also chatted about his new 16-inch MacBook Pro at some length. Jeff was as he always is: charming and warm.

Our sincere thanks to TextExpander from Smile for helping support us as a sponsor for TMO’s CES 2019 coverage. The effort, planning, and expense it takes to comb through all the noise at CES and bring you targeted, relevant coverage is quite large, and without our sponsors we wouldn’t be able to do it all for you. The good folks at Smile see the value in this and were very quick to jump on board to ensure that you would get the very best of what we have to offer this year. We’re very thankful for that, and we hope you are, too.

TextExpander Adds MacBook Pro Touch Bar Support

· · Cool Stuff Found

Smile’s TextExpander got a nice update on Monday, assuming you’re a Touch Bar MacBook Pro user. The 6.1.3 update adds Touch Bar support so you can add, organize or delete snippets with a tap, filter snippets, and check your snippet statistics, too. The update also includes better VoiceOver access and fixes a few bugs because everyone else deserves a little something in the download. TextExpander 6.1.3 is a free download and works with Smile’s TextExpander subscription service.
