MacVoices #16152: Joe Kissell On Speeding Up, Maintaining, Troubleshooting and Backing Up Your Mac

Joe Kissell is back, and he has been busy. Joe introduces us to his latest Joe On Tech title, Speeding Up Your Mac: A Joe On Tech Guide,  and gives us some samples of things you can do to improve the performance of the Mac you have instead of buying a new one. That’s just the start, though, as Joe walks us through updates to the other three titles on his imprint,  Backing Up Your Mac: A Joe On Tech Guide,  Maintaining Your Mac: A Joe On Tech Guide and  Troubleshooting Your Mac: A Joe on Tech Guide. Joe explains the why’s and what’s of those updates, to help you keep things running smoothly.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Atlasssian, the makers of software that helps teams team everywhere team up to create what’s next.
