In a week when ‘Uncle Tim’ talked to Jim Cramer of Mad Money and the Apple Earnings Call showed they’re “doing OK”, the UK’s Government’s secret plans to spy on its own citizens even more got leaked and Microsoft released a strangely schizophrenic Windows 10S platform aimed at low end hardware to combat the Chromebooks teamed with a premium Surface Laptop priced at $999, we take our usual “seamless” wander around the highways and byways of Apple and tech related news while guest Guy Serle from the MyMac Show does his best to derail the proceedings…

This week’s “App-session” [obsession.. geddit?]
Also I got this from somewhere – Vanilla
it’s somewhat like Bartender and it lets you rearrange or hide the icons on the right hand side of your menubar. It is free to use and only £3.20 to unlock the “Pro” version with a few more options (although Bartender costs about £12 it does more things) I have used it to put Spotlight, Siri, Fast User Switching and a bunch of other stuff in the pop out “hidden” section.
