Jeff Carlson just finished his latest effort, Take Control of Apple Watch for Take Control Books, a detailed examination of the capabilities of the current version of the hardware and software, with a nod to the future. In the first part of our discussion, Jeff covers the evolution of a Take Control Crash Course into a full-fledged 1.0 version of this book, and why that happened by popular demand, then starts to dig in to some of his favorite features, and why everyone should have one (if they don’t already). This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, PDFpen for iPad, PDFpen for iPhone, PDFpen Scan+, as well as TextExpander for Mac and TextExpander for iPhone and iPad, as well as the new TextExpander for Windows. Great software to help you get more done. Show Notes: Chuck Joiner is the producer and host of MacVoices. You can catch up with what he's doing on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
