    I have a weird problem with Preview/Screenshot on my Mac (BigSur) that seems to have developed in the last few weeks. I normally take a screenshot PNG or convert to JPEG of my IDdown vids to use on IDdown. I use preview to add text to them. My problem is now when I set the text to 200 pt size the text comes out quite small whereas before it used to be huge when set at 200 pt. I've literally formatted my MacBook Pro as thought I might have installed some software that corrupted it but it's still the same. The text size thing works fine (huge text on size 200) when I download an image or use one I've taken on my phone so maybe it's something in screenshot that has changed? Has anyone else noticed this or could you test yours to see if it does the same as it's driving me nuts!

    "Big Sur" should be renamed "Big Slow". Everything is slower.....slow start up, (incredibly slow), slow to open applications. I have plenty of storage available so that's not a problem. Catalina was excellent, had no problems and was fast! Come on Apple what have you done?

    All of this is useless to me. Safari, Never use it never will because I can already customize my browser on firefox way before Big sur. How about customizing mouse cursor instead boring black arrow or customizing that ugly blue folder icon. Maybe moving wallpaper on dasktop. Oh wait this is apple we are talking about, and that's why I have both Mac and gaming pc!! I can do all of this on a gaming PC.

    Big Sur came preinstalled on my M1 Mac mini. I actually only got the M1 because it was new and different, kind of the complete opposite of when I got my iBook G4 in mid-2005. Since I use an iPad Pro and iPhone 12, the integration between the 3 is amazing.

    There are so many things I like about this update but so many things I don’t - Can’t stand that so many things are hidden til you mouse over like proxy icons - Don’t like that all the icons are the same shape - I don’t like the title bars. The way they’re combining them with toolbars is awkward and it bugs me so much that the title text is no longer centered

    Great intro to Big Sur. There are two things I already don't like though. Notifications hid the + sign in its new location next to the URL. And when I do a screenshot I have to go to File Rename to change it from Untitled> Right? Used to only have to click and type the new name. I hope there's something I'm missing. I'm sure you'll tell me. ;)

    5:30 I switched to Mac about two years ago (still using Windows 10 via Bootcamp for FL Studio tho). Am I the only one who thinks 'QuickTIme' looks nothing like a proper video player or is there anything I am missing? If they are trying to modernise MacOS and make it iOS-like, that's great, but then why don't they just make the Photos app behave like the default and only photos/video player and make it work and look modern and seamless like on iOS? Especially now that the M1 is available to bridge the gap between MacOS and iOS. Instead we get the ridiculously outdated-looking 'QuickTIme'?

    Got a question, is it possible to copy past files from the mac to an android for example, or an iPhone, like on windows? Cause last time i got an MBA (2015) +iPhone 8, i could only transfer files from the iPhone to the mac but not reverse. I don't like iTunes + i don't have a good network connexion so airdrops is limited. Thanks in advance

    I love watching this kind of video because they help me think up features I hadn't thought of to look for in my Linux install. ;) (no hate for Mac - given a choice between Mac & Windows I'll take Mac any day of the week... but I run Linux by choice). The sign language thing is cool... and a big step towards having it recognize & give on the fly subtitles for sign but that's gonna require a lot more machine learning I think.... sadly, that's the only thing it's got that I didn't already have on my system. :(
