Dropbox’s Carousel Jams

Dropbox has pulled the plug on Carousel, ending the photo service that it introduced just last year. Photos uploaded to Carousel will be available via the Photos section of the Dropbox app. When I was revising Take Control of Your Digital Photos for version 2.0 (available now!), one of the more difficult parts was the ...

Talking about Taking Control of Photos at MacVoices

To coincide with the release of Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac, Second Edition, I had a great discussion with Chuck Joiner at MacVoices about what’s new in this edition, how the Mac photo landscape has changed in the last two years, and what to consider when looking at online photo services. ...

Now Available: Second Edition of Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac

I’m happy to announce that the big second edition of my ebook Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac is now available!

Take Control 50% Off Back-to-School Sale Happening Now!

I don’t post about many back-to-school sales because there are so many (as a technology journalist, my email is full of them), but this one’s special.

Take Control of Wi-Fi

For many years, Glenn Fleishman and I shared office space in a handful of locations, with a handful of other writers, editors, and artists.

I Chat with Chuck Joiner about the Apple Watch and My New Book

Following my appearance last week on Chuck Joiner’s podcast, he invited me back to talk specifically about the Apple Watch (have you heard of it yet?) and my brand-new book Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course. We had a great conversation that went beyond just what the watch is good for and whether it ...

Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course

In the time since Apple introduced the Apple Watch in September, I’ve fielded two questions many times: “Should I buy one?” and “Which one should I get?” Now I’m excited to announce that I’ve written a book that helps answer those questions and plenty more: Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course. But wait, the ...

Aperture’s Golden Hour

It seemed fitting that I heard the news that Apple is sunsetting Aperture while I was attending a photo seminar. Aperture has been largely dormant for the past three years, and as I commented to Jackie Dove in an article at The Next Web, “I have to admit, on one level I’m a bit relieved ...
