Re: MacBook Air Concerns

Probably a poor choice of title. Since I’m concerned about my MacBook Air, the title seemed logical to me. Oh well. I usually use “shut down” under the Apple icon, but occasionally use the power key (for no logical reason.) I’ll stop doing that, but had to use it again to get rid of the white spinni...

MacBook Air Concerns

In wondering if my laptop is on it’s last legs. It’s a circa 2012 Air, and it’s been acting strangely lately. I’m frequently getting the “colored spinning wheel of death” which doesn’t persist very long. It also seems to be heating up and the fan is running much of the time, even when I’m just doing...

Re: New iPhone & Cell service??

I’ve always gotten only 2 bars up Mt. Pleasant with my AT&T service, but it’s not been a problem, and the service has always been consistently good.

Re: New iPhone & Cell service??

Thanks, Stephen. I found out today that her husband already has Verizon cell service bundled through Direct TV. So it seems that the logical thing for her would be to add another phone to that package. She loved my iPhone X, so I think that's the way she'll be going.

New iPhone & Cell service??

I have a friend who will be purchasing her first iPhone, and I'm wondering how to advise her. She is not likely to become a heavy user, and I was thinking of suggesting an iPhone 7 or 8. I'm also thinking that Consumer Cellular might be a good choice for her, but I'm wondering about coverage in our ...

Re: Numbers issue

Thanks, Stephen.
I stumbled onto an even easier solution. I tried opening the email and downloading the file on my iPad. Magic! It automatically opened in Numbers in perfect format. Then I airdropped it to my Mac to tinker with it. Problem solved.

Numbers issue

I'm SO lame with spreadsheets! I know this is easy, and I did it last year, but can't get it to work this year. I'm trying to download a .csv file of my tax deductible mileage into Numbers on my Mac. I've requested the file to be sent to my Gmail account from Mile IQ. When I open the email, I'm give...

Need iPhone shopping advice

After having my iPhone 5s for 4 years, and with the advent of iOS 11, it seems it's time for a new iPhone. I stopped at an Apple store a few weeks ago and looked at the iPhones 8, 8+, and 10. I'm leaning towards the 8, but haven't completely discounted idea of the 10. I'll be keeping the new phone f...

Flash drives

I would like to get a couple of flash drives to use with my older MacBook Air. I know that the USB 3.0 drives are faster, but would there be any compatibility problem with my laptop? Also... any suggestions on which brand to get? I've read several reviews, and would probably go with a Sandisk 64GB f...
