Audio: Adding Windows features to your Mac, your calls.

On the third Wednesday of every month we do a live call in show taking your technology questions. This episode, first aired on August 17, 2011. We start our talking about Lion, the new Mac OS, but the bulk of this show, as always is the improv we do when we take your calls.  You never know what we're going to be asked, or what we might say.

  • How to be your own computer detective.
  • I'd rather be lucky than stupid.
  • Should you leave your computer on at night?
  • Do computers dream during hibernation?
  • We solve domestic disputes.
  • What can keep you from making a recovery disk?
  • How do you keep your Macbook from overheating?
