MacVoices #23167: Road to Macstock – Jill McKinley

Our Road to Macstock series continues in a conversation with Jill McKlnley, a first-time presenter at the conference. Jill will be talking about “Using Your Sticks”, her metaphor for being more productive with your Apple tech. Jill should know: she talks about her journey from Windows user to podcast listener to switcher ad podcast producer. Her perspective on why the Mac, and on piece of software, make her choice obvious. 

This edition of MacVoices is supported by MacVoices Magazine, our free magazine on Flipboard. Updated daily with the best articles on the web to help you do more with your Apple, access MacVoices Magazine content on Flipboard, on the web, or in your favorite RSS reader.
