How Me Being Homeless All Those Years Ago Helps You with Your Technology


We hope you had a safe, relaxing and reflective Memorial Day. 

We here at Fedora enjoyed our three day weekend but are ready to jump back in and tackle your questions and concerns.  

So far, the response to our request for your biggest gripes and groans about your Mac have been extraordinary! 

Here are just a few we’ve had come in via our various social media platforms: 

• How to use tagging in mail and is it worth it? 

• Why Voice-Over continuously says “busy” and how to stop it for good (we’ll, maybe!)

• Voice-Over not starting up when the computer starts up

• I’m virtually homeless and between jobs and I need your best advice and help

• Audio routing frustrates me and I just don’t understand it

• Navigating Pages on the Mac is problematic for me… please HELP!


That’s just a sample of what we’ll be covering on this weeks super sized FAQ Friday.  

You’ll also get a glimpse of my (Vashaun’s) life story and how it has helped me to help you.

You’ll definitely want to tune into this one!
