An Early Look at Matter on the Web

Matter is a relatively new read-it-later service that's been getting a good amount of attention, including several features here on The Sweet Setup.

Obsidian Task Management Notifications

One additional aspect of task management, which we have yet to talk about in Obsidian, is the ability to trigger system-wide notifications on your Mac, which can take you straight to the task that you need to complete.

Anyway โ€” Shawn challenged me to create something similar in Notion that could include the functionality he was looking for. »

Level Up Your Shortcuts with Stream Deck

Elgato's Stream Deck has really taken off in the past few years, and at it's core, it's simply a programmable keyboard that you can use to do whatever you want on your Mac or PC. Originally designed for streamers to do things like switch cameras, play sound effects, and bring up graphics on screen, it's drawn the eye of regular office workers as well. »

Three Tips for Making Windows 11 in Parallels Seamless on a Mac

A colleague on The Sweet Setup team recently asked me a profound question related to Windows on the Mac โ€” a question wherein I completely dropped the ball in answering. The question was simple: Why would a regular Mac user choose to work in Windows on a Mac instead of macOS?" Tough question. In short, compatibility. »
