Whether you are the person who everyone calls for tech support, are the person who is doing the calling, or simply interested in technology…this podcast is for you!

Introducing BYTES

To our busy fan base…we hear you. The Brothers tend to talk…and talk. We know that some of you love to hear us ramble on and deep dive into our tech topics…but we also know that sometimes you just want a quick BYTE (you see what we did there?) of tech information that you can consume on your breaks. Well, let us introduce you to the Brothers in Tech BYTES. In addition to our regular rambling episodes…we are going to be throwing out some quick episodes where we provide you with a tip/technique that you can do with your phone/tablet/computer. No additional software or hardware needed…just (sometimes) hidden features that you might want to take advantage of. The question is…can the Brothers keep the episode short? Well, one of them can…

BYTES mentioned in this episode:

  • Shortcuts: You have the ability to create (or download) some really useful shortcuts on your Mac and/or iOS device. Alan shows you some “quick” samples.
  • Two-finger organization of app icons/folders? Brian shows you an easier way to organize your home screen(s).
