Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed some seriously bad humor (Apps & Traps), a seriously frightening mouse pointer (El Capitan), and Marilyn in disguise.

At Coco’s, we touched on Star Wars, Star Trek, various genres of music and performers, and which food items Coco’s was out of.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Who are you and what do you do?

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

We are Foojee! Foojee is a team of Apple Consultants operating out of Atlanta and Nashville. We help organizations and schools build rock-solid solutions with their Apple IT.

You can catch Foojee’s complete story here: Foojee’s Mac and iOS setups.

“Back issues” can be found here: Sweet Setup Interviews.
