This was one of those weeks when a lot of behind-the-scenes things happened but I have essentially nothing to show for it publicly. I’ll be back next week with more substantive updates.
We released two minor updates this week. Other than that, nothing much to report, except a planned outing to an actual movie theater for the first time in years. Weird.
It was an eventful week! We finished a gigantic sale, Amazon announced support for EPUB (and the end of MOBI support) on Kindle, and 1Password 8 for Mac shipped.
May 1 marks the fifth anniversary of alt concepts (Joe Kissell and Morgen Jahnke) running Take Control Books. Joe reflects on the experience, looks to the future, and announces a big sale!
Of all the planets I’ve visited, Earth is definitely among my favorites. Top 10, easily, though if it weren’t for all the humans, it might break into the top 5. Happy Earth Day.
Glenn Fleishman joined host Chuck Joiner on MacVoices about his book Take Control of Untangling Connections. In part one, Glenn offers tips on figuring out what cable is right for what task and how to identify cables. In part two, Glenn continues the discussion with thoughts on USB-C, Thunderbolt, and more.
We released another updated book this week, which offers detailed instructions for using the Mac command line in any version of macOS up through Monterey. Unfortunately, next week is spring break.
We released a small update to “Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac” this week, and we’re slowly but surely making our way through the list of other updates we’re behind on.
Last week we released a new book about cables, ports, and connectors. Plus a new edition of our Audio Hijack book. And there’s plenty more where those came from.
My finger is poised over the big red “Publish!” button for a new edition of one of our books, just waiting for the go-ahead from an external source. More are in the queue!
