Evernote 5 for Mac is Here Packed with Over 100 New Features

Evernote 5 for Mac is Here Packed with Over 100 New Features | Mac Tech Support | Scoop.it

The Evernote desktop experience has evolved significantly over the years. We’ve changed things in response to new features, new device capabilities and to meet the expanding needs of our users. But no previous update has matched the scope of what we’re launching today.

We’ve spent the past year identifying the needs of new and advanced users to craft an environment that beautifully caters to both. We re-imagined the look of the app to make everything more accessible. We explored the changing role of sharing and collaboration within Evernote and the opportunities we have to make them more useful. We considered search and the ways that we could make it feel like it was one step ahead of your thoughts. In short, it’s the Evernote we’ve always wanted.

The hidden power of the iPhone earbuds

The hidden power of the iPhone earbuds | Mac Tech Support | Scoop.it

The hidden power of triple-clicks, and press-and-hold

Less obvious, and less well-documented is what happens if you double-click and hold down that center button on the second click. As it turns out, it will fast-forward through music or a podcast (sadly, not through boring phone calls). Even less obvious -- and generally only discovered by accident -- is that triple-clicking the center button and holding down on the last click will rewind music, audiobooks, and podcasts. The fast-forwarding or rewinding continues until you release the center button.

Pointers: workaround for Safari's sudden crashing (OS X) [u] | MacNN | Mac Tech Support | Scoop.it

Today -- January 27, 2016 -- Safari on OS X has begun failing so badly that we're not sure you can even navigate to this page. If you have, though, there is a workaround. Well, there are two: this is so big and so widespread that surely Apple engineers spluttered over their coffees, and are working on a fix. In the meantime, start by switching off Safari Suggestions. Update: Apple has now confirmed to us that this has been fixed on their end, but if you are still experiencing the problem, this Pointers will clear out some of your device caches and restore normal functionality.

How to get a Mac laptop's headphone jack to work reliably

How to get a Mac laptop's headphone jack to work reliably | Mac Tech Support | Scoop.it
A reader writes in with a common problem with MacBooks of all vintages related to audio output.

Put the laptop on a level surface, and briefly spray air into the headphone jack.

If that doesn’t solve it, try these steps whenever this occurs:

  • Does plugging and unplugging the headphones make them work?
  • Hold down the Option key, and select the volume icon in the system menu bar to reveal audio inputs and outputs. Is Headphones selected as the output device? Does it appear in the list? If so, can you re-select it and get sound through the headphones now?
  • Sleep and wake your computer. Do the headphones work now?

The Safe Mac » “There are no Mac viruses”

The Safe Mac » “There are no Mac viruses” | Mac Tech Support | Scoop.it

First, a lot of people don’t understand  basic malware terminology. The technical definition of a “virus” is a malicious program that installs by itself, embedding itself inside another program or file, and spreads itself to other computers. The word “malware,” on the other hand, refers to all classes of malicious software: viruses, worms, trojans, etc. The average user refers to all malware as “viruses,” without an understanding of the strict definition of the word. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it should be the job of those with more tech knowledge to educate those with less, not to play word games with them or belittle them for a minor misuse of terminology.
