Posted in podcast, MobileViews by mobiletoday on May 18th, 2020

In this podcast Todd Ogasawara and Jon Westfall discuss:

iPad Pro 11-inch replaced. No more spontaneous shutdowns and reboots

<a href="https://youtube.googleblog.com/2020/05/youtube-music-transfer-google-play-music-library.html">Google Play Music going away.</a> Forced to switch to YouTube Music. But, no sign of the "transfer button" on YouTube Music for iPadOS.

How much credence should I give to browser speed tests like <a href="https://browserbench.org/">Speedometer 2.0</a>? I began wondering about this as I debate whether to buy the new Lenovo Chromebook Duet when it is available somewhere (other than in reviewers' hands).

Jon’s Using his Apple Watch to its full potential.

iOS text messages & multiple devices - notifications problem

Still struggling with URL Schemes with Microsoft Office (why doesn’t ms-excel:// always open in office or Excel - WHY would it open Onedrive?!?)

Revisiting the Microsoft Whiteboard app

Microsoft Office app for iOS and Android

Jon’s Struggle to use a Apple 27’’ Cinema Display (2010, not thunderbolt, Mini-Displayport) with USB C. Cost of my desired refresh.

Jon's R tip: Web Scraping with rvest package - example code below. Basically if you can read HTML and understand CSS classes, you can find information and download it.

 

App Tip of the Week: Garageband How-To Videos.
