People using Mac OS 9 and earlier will probably remember the Location Manager: http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/75281/mac_os_-_manage_location_manager/ It allowed you centrally adjust settings and devices (printers, networks, applications to open, mounted volumes...) based on your location, for example "Home" and "Office". There were third-party replacements on OS X earlier ("Location Manager X" and "Marco Polo" come to mind) but these look like abandoware now. Is there finally a new replacement in Mavericks? With more and more people using mobile devices I can't believe there isn't a similar solution, or am I missing something? There are certainly more portable Macs in use today than in 2000. PS: This is about much more than just network settings. For example, at home your Mac would automatically launch iTunes and play music, while at location "Office" it wouldn't etc.
