MacVoices #14234: The Command-Control-Power Crew Discuss Real-World Yosemite and iOS 8 Use

The hosts of  Command-Control-Power,  Joe Saponare,  Sam Valencia  and  Jerry Zigmont, are back to give us a boots-on-the-ground look at Yosemite  and iOS 8. Because they spend their days supporting clients large and small, they have a unique, real-world view of the Mac OS in general, and some of the cool new features of Yosemite in particular. The discussion covers how people use Handoff and Continuity, how they (think they) understand iCloud Drive and backup, the ever-present issues and questions surrounding malware, and more.
