Amazing time saving info

If you are looking for something that needs to be automated or things that you didnt even know you could automate, this is the show. Dave and Rose are amazing at the detail of explaining things.

Something to aspire to

David Sparks and Rosemary Orchard talk the talk and walk the walk. Both are true experts who actually enjoy educating the audience with the potential of automation in the Apple ecosphere. I learn something useful every episode and frankly, I just enjoy their company. Highly recommended if you have any interest in reducing your keystrokes and other forms of drudgery on Apple devices.
