TidBITS#1356/13-Feb-2017

TidBITS is expanding — Adam Engst introduces our new TidBITS Content Network, a syndicated content service designed to help Apple consultants, resellers, and other professionals populate their blogs, newsletters, and social media streams. Wireless carriers are coming full circle, as Verizon Wireless reintroduces an “unlimited” data plan at a reasonable price. QR codes, which make it easy to share URLs and other bits of data in the physical world, have never quite caught on. Google hopes to change that by including a QR code scanner in the iOS version of its Google Chrome Web browser. We welcome a new sponsor this week: Squarespace, which makes creating and hosting beautiful Web sites fast and easy. Josh Centers is a longtime customer, and he gives a few usage tips and tells you how you can save 10 percent on your first purchase. Finally, Josh dives back into his “A Prairie HomeKit Companion” series with a look at Automations. Notable software releases this week include Alfred 3.3 and TextExpander 6.1.5.
