Show Notes


  • LonelyBob wants us to make sure we cover Fitness+ when it launches.
  • Field Report from our missing Australian man



  • Clay’s new MacBook Air (1TB/16GB RAM)
    • Feels like the future
    • 16GB feels like 32 or more GB
    • Used from friday 8pm till Sunday and was only at 27%
    • Keep wanting to touch the screen (most touchable human designed MacOS yet
    • 400 nits bright enough for photographers
    • Capture One Pro 20 which is not optimized for M1 is way faster under Rosetta 2 than my iMac mid 2011 with 32gb of RAM
    • This monitor is much better for photography editing vs my mid2011 iMac
    • Back-lit keyboard is interesting concept I never had a luxury of having. I am happy I can dial it down… It is set to 0
    • Battery life is phenomenal (charge every other day with heavy use ie photography editing)
    • Clay is gonna rate M1 MBA against all computers I’ve owned (including iPad & iPhone).
    • iOS apps
    • Use a shared folder with Time Machine
      • You can set up a shared folder on your Mac that other Mac computers can use as a Time Machine backup destination. The folder must be located on an Apple File System (APFS) volume and shared using the SMB protocol.
