MBW 746: The Year in Review

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Hazel has great capabilities for searching inside files and renaming files based on that. Use that all the time.

I endorse the resolution to get a new show-closer. Cracking the whip at the end is so negative. I understand it’s tongue-in-cheek and has the nice tie-in to the title, but yeach🥵

Probably the scariest 2 minute commentary (20:28 - 22:28) by tech journalists I’ve come to respect. That sound I’m hearing is the sound of Xi Jinping of China subscribing to this podcast.

The TWiT crew always bags on the AirPods Max cases and often comment on wondering why to use them. They don’t seem to realize that the Apple cases (and I assume third party makers in the knobs) are SMART cases - “When stored in their soft, slim Smart Case, AirPods Max enter an ultra‑low‑power state that preserves charge.” (from the website). This can make a difference on a long airfreight or commute.

The “smart” case can also completely emasculate the average man by looking like a cute little purse.
