-One last item is a great keyboard customizer for macOS: Karabiner-Elements. Joe used it to remap his F6 key.

-Sam recommends Miro to create visual collaboration tools. He used it to create a powerful presentation for a client.

-TextSniper is Jerry’s go-to tool to capture text. It’s incredibly useful and simpler than using the built in functionality of the OS to capture text.

-Joe received good feedback from Sam and others about using an M2 in clamshell mode. He can now make a more informed decision for a client.
