Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, a totally gobsmacking presentation on the new iMac Pro and Apple Watch (and iOS and MacOS), and too much cool stuff in Apps & Traps is what you missed.

At Conrad’s, cameras, big TVs, the Paul McCartney concert at Dodger Stadium, a tiny chicken restaurant in Tokyo, and AMC financial woes dominated the conversations.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Who Are You and What Do You Do

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we {aim to} post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

I’m Mike Schmitz, creator of Faith-Based Productivity. I also co-host the Focused and Bookworm podcasts, and most recently I joined The Sweet Setup team as Executive Editor.

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed the latest REALLY cool Apple announcements, and lots of Apps and Traps stuff you need to know.

At Conrad’s, we dealt with dealing with old computer equipment and OSes, dealing with the FCC, old wireless mics, and adopting homeless kittens.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!
