#1477: Avoiding Netflix autoplay previews, Sip color manager for Mac, choosing a Lightning to USB adapter, CES 2019 gadget reviews

iOS 13 will finally offer support for mice and external storage devices, so Josh Centers explains why one of Apple’s two Lightning to USB adapters is a better choice than the other. If you hate Netflix’s autoplay previews as much as Adam Engst, you can avoid them with a pair of Apple TV apps he has discovered. Do you struggle with macOS’s aging color management tools? Timothy Buck joins us again to review Sip, a smart color management app for developers and graphics professionals. Wrapping up the issue, Jeff Porten reviews a trio of gadgets he collected at this year’s CES: a battery that can power an iPhone and a MacBook simultaneously, an audio equalizer app for the Mac, and a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds that are about half the price of Apple’s AirPods. Notable Mac app releases this week include 1Password 7.3.2, ChronoSync 4.9.4, BusyCal 3.6.9, and DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta 6.
