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.

Automating blog posts for my podcast Supercomputer

If you were a visitor to my site in November, you might’ve noticed a lack of posts on the blog. While I’ve been producing videos and podcasts the whole time, I had a mental block on creating the short posts here on my website for each and just didn’t bother to write them up.

As we’re approaching the end of the year, I decided to get my act together and automate more of blog posts for my work, starting with podcast episodes.

That way I’d have no excuse not to do them, I could spread the news for my podcast more easily, and along the way put together a handy shortcut that I repurpose for my YouTube videos, articles on other sites, and eventually embedded shortcuts here on my blog.

To accomplish this, I built a Post Podcast shortcut that I can run each Friday when we release a new episode of Supercomputer.

Least Sexy, But Amazing ?

New episode of Supercomputer out:

This week, Matthew ponders why you can’t get real work done on iOS, and Alex works herself into a tizzy about Pokemon and old men.

After another round of iOS maligning over the weekend, I started to get a little riled up on this episode.

No, I didn’t write the show notes ?

No One Is Taking Away Your Computer ?

New episode of Supercomputer out:

In a caffeine-fueled rage, Alex & Matthew pleasantly discuss the viability of iPad Pros as computers.

I got a little hyped up on espresso and started ranting this week.

But, it turns out, I had something important to say.

We’re in The Medium Place ?

Episode 11 of Supercomputer is now out – listen in if you’re curious about the new iPad Pros.

Alex talks about her concerns over USB-C, I tried to talk her down from the ledge, and we both ended up convincing ourselves to be excited about the new iPads.

Plus, we talked about the changes to Shortcuts 2.1 that I covered in my video earlier this week.

With this episode, we’re also making the switch to releasing on Fridays – we’re trying to guarantee the show is as good as possible, plus give us flexibility on recording days to account for any events as well as our schedule. New episodes every Friday – Supercomputer for the weekends!

Start prepping your daily routine plans for an upcoming episode, because we’ll be walking through those shortly – in the meantime, drop us any shortcuts requests in our submission form, we’ll be answering a few soon!

The Allegory of Dark Mode [Podcast]

The Allegory of Dark Mode [Podcast]
On Thursday, Alex and I released our 9th episode of Supercomputer into the world. Titled “The Allegory of Dark Mode”, this episode follows up from our show two weeks ago on task managers.

After a short one-week break, we broke back into how we use our devices to get things done, plus went off a bit on how I use Twitter.

Near the end things got weirdly philosophical, which I’m totally okay with.

We talked about and shared a good number of shortcuts we use in the show notes, so if you’re not already subscribe to the show and add them as you listen along.

I also started a submission form for Shortcuts questions, so feel free to submit any places you’re getting stuck or shortcuts problems in the Airtable form any time!

Next week we’ll be talking about the home – HomePod, Apple TV, HomeKit, and more – looking forward to episode 10!
