#1422: Apple to fix MacBook keyboards, 911 location sharing, Xmarks gone, Web pages by email, Honeywell Lyric and HomeKit

If you have been frustrated by sticky or dead keys on your MacBook or MacBook Pro keyboard, we have good news: Apple has announced a service program for laptops with butterfly switches. Well in advance of iOS 12’s release, Apple is promoting a reason to upgrade: improved location sharing with 911 emergency calls. Adam Engst looks at how to send the full text of a Web page—like a back issue of TidBITS—via email, and also passes on news of the demise of the Xmarks bookmark-synchronization service. Mike Matthews joins us again this week with a detailed look at the Honeywell Lyric Security and Home Control System, which is compatible with HomeKit. Notable Mac app releases this week include Bookends 13.1, Default Folder X 5.2.5, GarageBand 10.3, DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.10.1, Scrivener 3.0.3, and Merlin Project 5.0.1.
