John Lennon Fanatic says:

I cant seem to add photos to People how do i add more photos not already in there.

Diana says:

You’re Mac book didn’t look dirty. Maybe their screen was dirty. People complain of the most silly things. You’re voice is fine. All I can say about this generation it expostulates a lot.

Daniel Claggett says:

I am not sure what everyone else’s experience w/ High Sierra has been but mine has been fantastic. Main reason is because of Apple’s File System.

Boot times as well as battery life improved greatly and my macbook pro of from late 2011.

Javier Igartua says:

Hello, i got a cuestión; how do you do to open that little window with icons like shortcuts? Thanks

iPone Punker says:

it might as well be called a Sierra Service pack 2

Bobby Ball says:

Using quick-look with a flac file just highlights the time/duration of the track for me – no info whatsoever even though they are tagged AND the very annoying bug where finder doesn’t show embedded artwork in mp3/aac 🙁

Francesco Manfredi says:

Does anyone know if it’s possible to open Capture One inside Photos?

cwasdqwe says:

In practice, actually nothing has changed except for the new file systems in SSDs…

It’s HEVC, and not HVEC. You lost my confidence from the start.

Lol you talk like a bitch. What the fuck is that beverly hills bitch accent you got.
“We uhnzo hav de new-unh Medal 2” “As well-uh”

Nathan Forrester says:

Pretty handy

F ab says:

Your reading cadence needs a lot of work, its distracting. Your anunciation is not good, you sound stressed out and the read sounds rushed, which will make listeners stressed out as well. Half the time it sounds like you’re mumbling. Listen to good reads and mimick them. You need to work on relaxing, using your breathing and pauses correctly, and opening up your voice. Hope you realize this is just constructive criticism. Cheers.

DrDuu says:

How does to it work with the photo editing with third party app? You start the photo editing with e.g Pixelmator from photo app and then all changes in Pixelmator should be saved in photo app directly…but how does it work? I tried to use it with pixelmator but no changes were saved in photo app…

Abhelito Centeno says:


You can play picture in picture on YouTube videos. F*ck I love it!

You can keep your High Syria. I don’t want none of that refugee crap in my good ol American Macbook! It’s an Apple MacBook, not an Ahmed Mahmoodbook.

Booben Tobi says:

Why so many negative and judgmental comments? I swear you fucks complain about the smallest goddamn things these days. If it’s not to your liking just go find another video with another person willing to take time out of his or her life to make it, only to have you point out how you hate their voice or how they should have cleaned their computer before filming or other dumb shit like that. Or better yet, YOU make the video and see what kind of trivial shit people make fun of YOU for…

binaryblog says:

Does photo app support RAW format from Canon, Nikon or other cameras?

siri sounds absolutely terrible on my machine!

Giuseppe Ingrassia says:

You are very well informed how ever you try and cover a lot in my opinion in this one video and I am an older man and I find you speak too fast and I have to stop and go back continually, I do appreciate your efforts to better inform iMac users of High Sierra.

Keg says:

Um… I don’t watch movies. I’ve never owned a tv and I’m 47
