  3. -Turns out it is possible to google from default spotlight by typing and then pressing cmd+b
    -BTT>moom. Btt has the same functionality, but it can do much more: shortcuts, touch bar customization, mouse/trackpad sensitivity settings, and much more for almost the same price.
    -Just switch to Telegram. No idea what holds you Americans back. If you're really into productivity then this is your choice.

  4. Hi,

    I've recently purchased a MacBook Pro M1 13" (I'm new to Mac)

    My issue:

    I connected my iPhone to my Mac via USB C / Lightning cable.
    I am able to transfer files to my iPhone or delete them.
    But when I click on ANY song, it does nothing whatsoever,
    No error, no message, it just doesn't play the song.
    I also can't create any playlist on my iPhone through the Music App,

    If I connect to a Windows PC, I can play any song which I desire.

    I've already set to manually mange music, and the Mac is authorised.

    Do I need to restore my phone?
    The phone was originally set up on a PC.

  6. I have the same new MacBook Pro with the M1 chip you have, I've been a Mac user since 2010 but it is the first time I wanna try to take real advantage of it. Since I started watching your videos, I wanna buy an iPad (I'm choosing between the Pro and the Air), Kindle, and kind go get rid of anything paper related. I also wanna buy all the apps you mention (all I have right now is Evernote hahaha), and not related to you, I wanna start drawing in procreate!
