MacVoices #17227: Joe Kissell Releases Four Take Control Titles Updated for High Sierra

 Joe Kissell is ending 2017 with a bang, bringing four book titles back to Take Control, and updating them for High Sierra in the process. Take Control of Speeding Up Your MacTake Control of Troubleshooting Your MacTake Control of Maintaining Your Mac, and Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac make up what Joe calls their “fitness” bundle, essential information for every Mac user. Each book stands on its own, but there are themes that cut across all the subjects. Joe gives us some ideas on how High Sierra’s new file system, APFS, changes the game for all the titles, why backups are even more important if you’ve adapted the new file system, and how sometimes the most basic parts of your system need to have special attention.
