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.
We’ve just opened the doors on the TidBITS Content Network, a new syndicated content service designed to provide professionally written, edited, and illustrated tips and articles for Apple consultants, resellers, and other businesses to use in their blogs, email newsletters, and social media streams.
Thanks to competition from Sprint and T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless has now introduced an “unlimited” data plan at a surprisingly reasonable price.
Please welcome our latest TidBITS sponsor, Squarespace. Josh Centers explains how Squarespace makes Web site creation and hosting fast and easy.
You no longer need a dedicated app to scan QR codes and barcodes now that the latest version of the Google Chrome Web browser for iOS can perform those tasks. But read on, since you may not guess how to invoke the scanner.
In this installment of A Prairie HomeKit Companion, Josh Centers explains how to put the automation in home automation.
Notable software releases this week include Alfred 3.3 and TextExpander 6.1.5.
