#1501: How to deal with low cloud storage space, StopTheMadness fixes unfriendly Web sites, clean tech and more from CES 2020

What would you do if you were to run out of space on iCloud, at Google, or in Dropbox? Adam Engst provides a detailed guide on how to deal with such a situation before you lose email and files stop syncing, without paying for more storage. Have you been frustrated by Web sites that block standard Mac keyboard shortcuts, hijack scroll behavior and contextual menus, and prevent copy and paste? Josh Centers reviews the StopTheMadness app, which can restore all of those features and more in all your favorite browsers. Jeff Porten continues his coverage of CES 2020 with a look at some of the more ambitious technologies demoed at the show. Notable Mac app releases this week include Pixelmator Pro 1.5.5, Bookends, Fantastical 3.0.4, OmniFocus 3.5, and Merlin Project 6.1.
