Does anyone really care about this kind of news? It seems to me that the fight between Samsung and Apple is not so relevant anymore, and no one is conflicted now, android or macOS. I'm a big fan of Apple tech and don't see myself with any other devices yet. I'm planning on buying a new Mac, but with more RAM. Right now I regularly have to clean the temporary cache https://setapp.com/how-to/how-to-clear-system-storage-on-mac, as well as other system data that takes up space that is already very scarce.

I try to actively use software from different systems, for example, I recently sorted out my Safari browser. I needed to remove "frequently visited" sites that were just in my way and were not needed. But not everywhere has a simple interface and this browser is certainly not famous for it. Luckily I read here https://setapp.com/how-to/remove-frequently-visited-on-mac just about this kind of software and I hope it was useful for you too.

Ken Ray has the ability to combine charm and wit with revelant Mac news. He was the best thing going for another "cough-cough" podcast before it went south. Now steering his own ship "Mac OS Ken: The Podcast" starts the day right for anyone who loves Mac's or is just Mac curious!

Then you should be running Mac OS Ken. Features of Mac OS Ken include: Sarcasm Humor Many Mac and Apple updates (availible through the Software Update tool) and much much more. "Mac OS Ken. The best Mac OS around. If you dont have it, you dont rock." ~ The New York Times Seriously, Ken you rock. 5 out of 5... 10 if I could. ~Avalon304

Yay! Ken Ray is back. He was the best thing to happen to Inside Mac Radio, and I've missed his daily news segment. Short, concise, informative and relevant, he adds just the right amount of editorial commentary (a little sarcastic but fully tongue-in-cheek) to kee it entertaining. A must have podcast for the Mac enthusiast and Mac-curious wanting a quick dose of news.
