Have you ever been unable to see a document that you know should be there in a Google Drive file list? Adam Engst recently encountered this frustration and eventually figured out the solution. Jeff Porten delivers his final report from CES, showing off RAID drives, geometric light panels, and even wireless power. Last but not least, Glenn Fleishman, who recently authored Take Control of Home Security Cameras, joins us this week to explore reasons to get a home security camera and offer advice on specs. Notable Mac app releases this week include Keyboard Maestro 9.0.5, HoudahGeo 6.0, Lightroom Classic CC 9.2, Audio Hijack 3.6.4 and Piezo 1.6.4, Delicious Library 3.9, Quicken 2019 5.15, and Fantastical 3.0.7.
If you rely on Google Drive for collaborative work, bear in mind that a hidden sort setting can cause new documents to fall to the bottom of the list of files in a folder where you might not think to look for them. Adam Engst suffered from this for a week before he discovered the solution.
Jeff Porten reports on interesting items from his last day at CES, including what’s new in RAID from Other World Computing, decorative light panels, and wireless power transmitted through the air.
Home security cameras are all the rage, but you have to start with the reason you want one in the first place. Do you want to record criminal behavior? Spot wildlife? Know your kids came in before midnight? It’s all about intent, and many people discover they have multiple overlapping desires.
