Mac Power Users #400: Four Things

It's hard to believe David and I have published 400 episodes of Mac Power Users. Some quick and dirty math estimates that's about 600 hours of spoken content over the course of the show to date. I don't see any end in sight.

We'll plan something grander when we reach episode 500 in a couple of years. For now, we figured we could commemorate episode 400 by sharing four of our favorite things in a variety of categories. Including products, software and even MPU episodes.
