This week, Alex shows Matthew how little he knows about video production.

I Have Control Issues ?

Alex and Matthew discuss the disappearance of Control Center – and how it overlaps with Shortcuts.

Control Center is super useful, but many people don’t realize you can automate much of what’s available there.

The Case of the Last Case ?

New episode of Supercomputer out:

Alex and Matthew reflect on the month’s Apple-related news, giving the hot takes some room and seeing how we’re feeling after some extra context. Plus, there’s a celebrity appearance.

Continuing along with new topics, Alex and I are starting an occasional “Cold Takes” show to cover news in the last few months with some added perspective that time gives everyone.

There Are Many Like It, But This Home Screen Is Mine ?

New episode of Supercomputer out:

Alex and Matthew cover their home screens, so open the episode to check out the shots.

In episode 21, we wanted to refocus our subject matter more for each episode.

We’ll be doing an occasional cycle of shows – a good topic, some guest appearances, a look back at the news of the last few months, and more philosophical episode that takes things to a higher level.

We’re always looking for diverse and interesting guests, so please send us recommendations at supercomputerpodcast@gmail.com.

Plus, we started a Patreon for anyone who feels like supporting the show. We’re gearing up the patronage rewards, but rest assured the show is free and it’s not required. That being said, we really appreciate everyone who’s signed up so far.

How to jump between the audio and video of Supercomputer

For episode 19 of Supercomputer, instead of hitting the “call” button to record, we pressed “video chat” and proceed to produce our podcast. I edited out some moments, added chapter markers for the audio file, and uploaded the video to YouTube.

This last week, for episode 20, I also added visual chapters, actually used Alex’s correct audio file, and shared our second video recording to YouTube.

But podcasts are for audio, right?

Behind The Cute Curtain ?

New episode of Supercomputer out:

Matthew and Alex talk about going from beginner shortcuts to the next level with the “If” scripting action, plus how this all could be a bit easier.

After last week’s livestream, I explained some of what “conditionals” are – if that sounds confusing, it’s worth listening.

Part of the episode is about breaking down barriers to concepts used in programming hidden behind fancy language, so we’ll explore more topics like this in the future.

In a classic coffee rant, I got to release all the feeling I built up in our time away from the show – I am more excited than ever for the future of Apple.

Plus, I make a call for app developers to come back.
