Ricky Jay and His 52 Assistants

A performance of his smash Broadway show, directed by David Mamet.

Jay, one of the greatest magicians of all time — and until he died at 72 on November 24 of this year, probably the greatest living authority on the history of magic — "combined bravura technique with a writerly passion for language."

Just now I had a look at the System Preferences panel (above) on my Mac.

I've had my machine, a mid-2012 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display, for over six years with nary a glitch.

Stuff I've never used and never will:

• Mission Control

• Spotlight

• Notifications

• Time Machine
