In this quick review we look at a really helpful case for the AppleTV Remote. The little remotes that come with the AppleTV are simple to use and compact but they are also dark and slippery. They slip in between cushions so easily it almost seems that Apple designed them for that purpose! Adding the Streamer Tails Case solves these problems and makes living with the AppleTV Remote a lot easier. Find them on Amazon.

Usually in macOS you need to use the “Shared” folder which is located in the “Users” folder to easily view and share files between user Accounts on a Mac. This is also possible by changing permissions on certain folders but that has its limits. The “Shared” folder will not sync with iCloud Drive though so it’s contents are only available on the Mac! Now with iCloud Folder Sharing its easy to Share a folder between user accounts on a Mac and have the folder available in iCloud Drive. This will work as long as each Mac user account has a separate Apple ID/iCloud Account. Learn more about iCloud Folder Sharing in this lesson…
