This episode was brought to you by FullContact and Matias. Get rid of your confusing Contacts app and get FullContact instead. Not only does FullContact seamlessly manage all of your Contacts from various sources, it will look for updates to contacts, show any duplicates so you can merge them, and even allow you to scan business cards to quickly, easily, and accurately add their information. Apple may consider its keyboard magic, but it clearly hasn’t seen the Wireless Backlit Keyboard from Matias. This aluminum keyboard includes a full-sized numeric pad, two separate batteries for powering the keyboard and backlight, the ability to pair with four different devices and easily switch between them, and much more.
