MacVoices #17085: Road to Macstock – Brett Terpstra on Spotlight, Tagging, and Organization

On the Road to Macstock, Brett Terpstra gives us a preview of his session, “Harnessing the Power of Spotlight on Your Mac”. Too many of us take Spotlight for granted, and Brett wants to change that by making us aware of everything Spotlight can do and how easy it is to access its many capabilities. He talks about how he uses Spotlight and some of its advanced features in managing his personal productivity, but assures us his Macstock session cover tips and tricks that anyone can, and should, use.
