    Too many of the new features with Sonoma (& on all the other Apple devices) are not only unnecessary, they will further contribute to the dumbing down of people. Why think or act for yourself when an app will supply words & show feelings. Tech can make us softer & more dependent on it. Or provide critical assistance without robbing us of our abilities to think and act. Check out the novella THE MACHINE STOPS by E.M. Forster - published in 1909. He had a vision of the future that will astound.

    Hi Gary, Can the Grocery App list you demonstrated here allow me to share with my wife?
    I am housebound so it would be convenient if I could type into my iMac something I need from the Supermarket and have it appear on my wife's iPhone.
    Thank you,

    John: Yes. You can already do that with Reminders lists now. That's been around for several years.

    I know product innovation is important, but most of the "improvements" have been useless to me. The iPad upgrades were especially annoying, adding clutter to the screen and multiplying the chances that touching the screen accidentally in the wrong place will cause something unwanted, like converting to a split screen. I take my devices seriously. They are not toys, as they would be to a kid who would be better off exercising or doing his homework.

    Do you think they will bring the new Journal app to Mac OS? They are not supporting as many of the older Macs as they usually do. I hope they introduce a 27ā€¯ iMac with an M2 or M3 chip this fall so I can replace my 2017 one that still has a slow and clunky HDD with a 7th generation i5 CPU.

    Thanks, Gary - great summary of Sonoma. The screen presentation and individual font enhancement abilities interest me the most. However, it appears obvious that Apple just continually strives to make things better overall. Nice to know that functionality of their Operating System is still of key importance to the people at Mac especially as Windows is now aggressively trying to close the gap in both systems - AI - and browsers.

    Thanks for sharing the new features - very helpful video! Linked notes and sections in reminders are features I've always wished were available but, with my aging eyes, I'm especially excited about changing text size by app. Definitely something to look forward to this fall.

    Hi Gary, will I be able to upgrade from Ventura to Sonoma ? if so should I bother ?

    Steve: In this video (at the end) I show which Macs will be able to update. Sonoma is in beta now, and will be released in the fall. Not sure what you mean by "should I bother?" Why not? You paid for these macOS updates when you bought your Mac, why turn down these new features and improvements and opt to run something outdated?

    Very Good. Updated O/s often require a new thinking process, this starts you off on your journey.

    But Automator does not work properly. It does not seem to have access rights, e.g. for Contacts app, and these rights cannot be granted in the system settings.
