MobileViews Podcast 306: My Microsoft-Chromebook experiment

In this podcast Jon and I discuss:

  1. Audio changes? Switched from Levelator to Rogue Amoeba Fission for volume leveling. But, it does not behave the same was a Levelator which actually increases the volume as part of the leveling process. Since I can’t move to MacOS Catalina because Audacity doesn’t have a version for it yet, I will go back to using Levelator until I am able to upgrade to Catalina.

    Note: Audio Hijack just got an upgrade that makes it compatible with Catalina.

  2. New shell in MacOS Catalina is ZSH?
  3. Microsoft Chromebook experiment
    Bought a low-end Chromebook: ARM processor, 4 GB RAM, 64GB eMMC
    Installed Android Office 365 apps.
  4. Google Chromecast
    Will carry one to project the Chromebook display on large display/projectors for presentations
  5. This Android Central article is dead wrong:
    Comparing the Pixelbook Go to cheap Chromebooks is silly and everyone should stop doing it
    In fact, this is exactly what I did after hearing the the Pixelbook Go announcement and then deciding to buy a much lower priced Lenovo C330.
  6. The strange effect of carrying AirPods on my belt versus in my bag. Will the same thing happen to my Apple Pencil?
