Automatic For The People

Yesterday, I watched a couple of episodes of the MacBreak video podcast.

While Leo Laporte can be a bit over the top at times, do persevere, because it's the guests who make the show, and the content is definitely interesting.

One I particularly liked was this one on Automator. Up to this point, I'd accepted that Automator was probably a good tool, but have never tried to use it for anything. After watching the video, I'll be giving it a serious workout the next time I have something I want to automate on OS X!

There doesn't seem to be a complete MacBreak archive anywhere that I've been able to track down, but you can find quite a few here.

Specific episodes I'd recommend are these two on Quick Silver, this one that talks about removing distractions from your Mac desktop, and this one on Sketchup and GoogleEarth.
